As a big Kazu Kibuishi fan I’m looking forward to seeing what other scenes he chooses to illustrate. Artist Peter Nguyen takes on DC Comics superheroines in a terrific print for New York Comic Con that includes everyone from Batwoman and Big Barda to Wonder Woman and Miss Martian. Shere Khan is a featured article, which means it has been identified as one of the best articles produced by the DisneyWiki community. As a cub, Shere Khan spoke with an American accent and was best friends with Baloo, Bagheera, King Louie, Hathi, and even Kaa. Shere Khan holds a burning hatred for mankind, and vows to kill any human that steps foot within the jungle. In the jungles of India, Bagheera the panther comes across an orphaned, human child lost in the jungle. Shere Khan's travels eventually led to the wastelands, where he overhears a flock of vultures singing. Khan is an extremely wealthy businessman who is the dominant economic force in Cape Suzette and an anti-hero.
He has an extremely cool and calm personality, rarely (if ever) showing any sort of alarm or surprise regardless of the circumstances.
In spite of being a cub, Khan still holds his intimidating demeanor and continues to strike fear into the hearts of many of the jungle's inhabitants. Shere Khan appeared in the TV series House of Mouse as a recurring guest, usually seen sitting either alone or with Kaa. In his most notable appearance in "The Mouse Who Came to Dinner", Mortimer Mouse was pretending to be the club's critic (which was really Lumiere) to have Mickey and friends obey him and when he became annoying, Shere Khan became annoyed as well and quoted "Do you mind?" to which Mortimer replied, "Yeah, as a matter of fact, I do mind, Stripey!
A dish called Shere Khan's Flan, named after the villainous tiger, is mentioned by Goofy in "Rent Day". In "Dining Goofy", Shere Khan was accidentally given broccoli by Goofy, thus angering the tiger. In "Goofy's Menu Magic", when a food shortage occurred, Goofy attempted to serve Shere Khan his shoe for dinner (an apparent reference to the Goofy short "Tiger Trouble"). Despite appearing in the series itself, Shere Khan never appeared in its movie Mickey's House of Villains, as Kaa is the only villain from The Jungle Book to join the Disney Villains, led by Jafar to take over the House of Mouse. At the beginning of the movie, he sees two British guards and a hunter named Buldeo shooting animals for fun, and becomes enraged at this. Rowling fans as Scholastic unveiled the new cover for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by none other than Kazu Kibuishi, the acclaimed creator of Copper, Daisy Kutter and Amulet. The originals just kind of encapsulated the combination of whimsy and the extraordinary the books had.

However, he was pretty egotistical and cocky, which often led to his friends bailing him out sometimes. With a dignified manner of carrying himself, and a strong sense of pride and elegance, the ruthless tiger is viewed as the uncorroborated ruler of the jungles of India; he is well aware of this reputation, as he takes advantage of it sadistically. It has been strongly implied that Shere Khan sees humans as unforgiving, soulless creatures who continuously cause havoc on nature, using narcissistic entitlement as justification for such acts.[2] According to Bagheera, Khan hates man "with a vengeance", with both man's gun and man's fire having been involved in the creation of such hatred.
Unlike the first film, his polite mannerisms and calm monologues are a rarity, as his bitterness and hatred towards Mowgli drives him to deeper madness, resulting in action being taken much quicker and having no comedic quirks whatsoever. The panther takes the child and delivers him to a pack of wolves–all of whom graciously accept the boy as their own.
His hunt was ruined when Colonel Hathi came marching by with his herd and scared it away, much to Shere Khan's annoyance. The vultures intervened and stalled the tiger while Mowgli tied a burning branch to his tail. He then found Mowgli's house and was delighted that he would now have his chance for revenge.

However, when Khan arrived, Mowgli is nowhere to be found and he splashes the water in fury as he says "That snake lied to me!" The vultures return and become uneasy when their newest member Lucky begins to insanely mock him. After Baloo and Shanti teamed up and started to bang gongs with Mowgli, one fell down revealing Shanti. Tony Jay provides his thick, British-accented voice starting from the series, until his death.
In fact, when his plane was attacked by Don Karnage's forces in the incident detailed above, he calmly mixed himself a drink as he explained the situation to Baloo.
In the series, it was shown that Shere Khan was originally friends with Baloo, Bagheera, Hathi and the others. However, his cocky attitude can get him and his friends into trouble with foes even he's frightened by, usually by bigger animals. In most of his pairings with Kaa, he is often seen holding Kaa by the neck, like in the movie.
Soon after Goofy was replaced by advanced technology, Shere Khan's meal order was corrected. However in the opening sequence, a tiger's paw is seen on-screen as the characters are walking towards the club. He roars in his fury, letting the soldiers know he's returned, and proceeds to follow the column of soldiers that the guards and Buldeo are part of. Recommended to anyone who’s looking for a really well written and drawn series of graphic novels. His reputation was such that he needed only to show himself to intimidate the inhabitants of the jungle. The group went on many adventures, but at some undetermined time, Shere Khan developed a strong British accent and became a vicious predator, feared by all members of the jungle. Most, if not all residents of the jungle, are known to fear Shere Khan, and for reasons apparent: he is physically imposing, often seen with a stoic, menacing expression.
Khan's fear of fire is the more dominant of the two, and acts as a crippling phobia capable of driving the tiger to immediate panic. He's also far more feral in this film; constantly growling, roaring, and losing his control when pestered even slightly, even going as far as viciously mauling a vulture as punishment for mocking him. Years later, Shere Khan gets word that a man-cub is in the jungle and sets out to kill him. After Bagheera stopped them, Shere Khan eavesdropped on their conversation and was delighted when he heard about Mowgli, who had managed to escape Bagheera in hopes of staying in the jungle; without the panther at his side, the boy was now devoid of protection. Kaa acted strangely while answering his questions, even attempting to hyptonize him, and his suspicious behavior prompted Shere Khan to search his coils for Mowgli. Impressed by Mowgli's courage (being that he refused to immediately run at the sight of the tiger), Shere Khan gave the boy ten seconds to run away.
Upon noticing, Khan became terrified and frantically tried to put out the fire, but to no avail, forcing him to flee the wasteland with the burning branch still tied to his tail, greatly humiliating him in the process. He is first seen smashing a makeshift version of Mowgli's head after Baloo left the area with Bagheera in pursuit.
However, he is willing to act nobly at times, such as ordering his forces into the air to protect the city from the Air Pirates, and has shown that he respects Baloo's piloting skills, most notably when he allowed Baloo to take over piloting his plane after having all pilots replaced with his own robotic pilots; his plane had been ambushed by the air pirates and the robotic pilot refused to deviate from its flight plan due to its programming causing Baloo to forcefully remove the robot and take control of the plane to evade the air pirates. Khan prefers to refer to the others as his followers rather than his friends, even though he obviously enjoys spending time with them. Khan appears rarely and instead serves as a major antagonist turned anti-hero of the film while an arrogant British captain named William Boone (played by Cary Elwes) serves as the main antagonist of the film. That night, he attacks the humans' camp in revenge for the animals' death, killing the two guards before turning on Buldeo. According to Scholastic, each of the covers will depict a memorable moment from the respective book.
The only moments where he's seen emoting otherwise is during his interrogations with potential victims, in which he speaks with a soft tone, coupled with a condescending and knowing smile, as he subtly taunts and emotionally torments his prey until he's ready to make the killing strike.

With such anger and rage, Shere Khan's normally somber and collected demeanor can become murderous, bloodthirsty, and feral in a matter of moments, as seen during his first confrontation with Mowgli in the original film, as he was willing to kill both the man-cub, and any animal who dared to protect him, without hesitation. The word of Shere Khan's oncoming arrival spreads quickly, and the wolves assemble to discuss Mowgli's fate. After Bagheera and Hathi's herd separated to locate the man-cub, Khan began his own hunt for Mowgli. When it appeared that Kaa was truthful, Khan ordered him to act as an informative should the former come across the man-cub.
Khan became more and more annoyed when he didn't, and eventually lunged for the killing strike. He seeks revenge on Mowgli for humiliating him at the climax of the original film and wishes for nothing more than his death. Before Khan leaves, he viciously mauls Lucky as revenge for the annoyance and presumably kills him.
He takes enjoyment out of running small companies out of business (Higher for Hire is sometimes on his hit list) with a sense of ruthlessness to skirt around the law as he chooses.
Khan often tagged along with Baloo and friends on many adventures, usually trying to prove he's braver than they are. Unlike his animated counterpart, Khan does not kill for sport, and his sole goal is to protect the jungle from those who break its "laws", namely humans who kill animals for fun instead of food. But before Khan can kill Buldeo, Nathoo (Mowgli's father and the soldiers' guide) shields the hunter. It is ultimately decided that the jungle is no longer safe for the boy, and that he must be returned to the Man-Village for his own good.
After Shanti started screaming about a wild animal, Khan noticed it was Baloo with Mowgli and was surprised.
Mowgli and Shanti jumped onto a tiger statue right over a pit of lava with Shere Khan right behind them. In the series, Shere Khan is given an American accent, while in other appearances, Khan speaks with a British accent. In one episode, the duo teamed up to take advantage of Louie, after he accidentally injured them.
He is described by the narrator of the film as "the jungle's royal keeper", and by Buldeo as the "king of tigers". Although Nathoo tells Buldeo to shoot Khan, the ungrateful hunter runs away and abandons Mowgli's father to be killed. As Shere Khan struggled to break free of Baloo's grip, the vultures carried Mowgli to safety. After the villagers responded to Shanti's calls, they saw Shere Khan instead of Baloo and chased him out of the village. He once even hired the Air Pirates to create an artificial oil shortage so he could extort higher prices from the public in "On a Wing and a Bear". Acting as if they were too injured to do anything themselves, they spent the day bossing the ape around. Rather than perishing, he landed on a slab of rock and was trapped underneath the statue's head.
Lucky, still alive but lost the feathers on his body and has a bruised right eye, then flew down and started to tease Khan again, much to his annoyance.
Kaa at first insisted he didn't know where Mowgli was, but Shere Khan knew better and intimidated him, even though Kaa was telling the truth.
