Comics

FansProject comics

The instruction comic "Shadow" included with Shadow Commander depicts him as initially having blue and red armor. As Commander, he leads Team Lynx to stop a rogue faction from using anti-nucleon against a colony world. He is betrayed by the Council of Primacron and nearly killed by the anti-nucleon. He survives and comes back as Shadow Commander.

Shadow Commander appears in the battle scene on the back of Tusker and Megazero's boxes, where he is fighting along side Shadow Scythe and Quadruple U.

TFcon comics

Shadow Commander appeared in the TFcon 2009 convention poster by Alex Milne. The armor is worn by Universe Nemesis Prime, and he is seen flying in with the Decepticon troops, with Henkei Megatron beside him.[4]
