Ta'harok in 8th Shock Army markings
He hated his universe's Blackout and accuses him of committing a crime. He travelled to our universe and repeatedly attacked our Blackout, to no avail. he then fused with Farpoint and hit Blackout's weak points for massive damage. he, and Shattered Mirror Kakamu, teleported onto the bridge of the Enterprise. They attacked Darkmount. Then him and Blackout were sucked into Naju's nightmare realm.
After collecting the three keys and leaving the nightmare realm, Ta'harok attempted to stop Blackout from opening the Conduit and ascending. Unfortunately, Blackout repeatedly impaled him, killing him. However, Naju restored his body, and he continued fighting with Blackout, until his head was removed, and he was again apparently dead.
At least that is what we thought, because his head rolled off and landed in a conveniently-placed pool of Energized Protodermis, which restored him. Once more he began fighting with Blackout, and Zev, and the Baterra, until eventually the combatants left for unknown reasons.
Eventually, when Chenrotoss was destroyed and turned into Tybion, Ta'harok, Kakamu and countless other random people teleported onto the Enterprise II. To avoid the threat of an angry cat owner, Ta'harok stole Kakamu's body and teleported down to Tybion.
In Kakamu's body, he fought the Baterra, and eventually went on to fight Blackout, both times under the guise of Kakamu.
After a lot of other stuff happened, Ta'harok found himself on the run from Blackout's Rahkshi. Shattered Mirror Kakamu then jumped in front of him, and killed him in a rather gory fashion.
A few years later, Ta'harok's body was found by John Shepard and he was revived, and outfitted with two new abilities:
- NOVA Mode, which allowed him to control the RX particles stored inside his body, and
- NOVA Full Burst, which allows him to control the RX particles to a greater degree, but required so much concentration that it is almost certainly suicide
Ta'harok was originally planned by Shepard to be his instrument in finding Project Genesis, but he rebelled. After stealing an advance vessel known as the Epyon and making contact with Zev Raregroove, he left for some time. Eventually, he masterminded an advanced plan to kill Naju, which failed, but managed to destroy his fleet.
