Achmed Korba had a restaurant in Ho Chi Minh City, which he used as a front for smuggling and espionage. One day, while on a country expedition, he encountered the Man-Beast, who granted him power in exchange for loyalty. In order to maintain him under control, Man-Beast limited Achmed's powers so that they could only be used when in contact with an innocent and pure being. Achmed chose Sha Shan as his wife, and she was forced by her father to accept in order to maintain the balance of the universe. Together, they became Brother Power and Sister Sun and led a cult called the Legion of Light.[2]

Achmed then traveled to the US with Sha Shan and, in a short time, opened a restaurant in New York. From there, he promoted the Legion of Light as a peace-loving organization and began amounting followers,[1] but its true purpose was to gather people who could then be manipulated as pawns of the Man-Beast.[3]

The Man-Beast was eventually defeated by Spider Man and Flash Thompson, and Sha Shan was freed from the mission imposed by her father, as Achmed died in an explosion.[3]
