The Shade can fly.
"Ragnell, he could always do that."
Name one time you've seen him floating without being actively lifted by his own constructs.
"Well, okay, that's what he's doing there."
Look closer. There is nothing underneath those feet and the only shadow construct in that picture is the giant hand catching the statue.
The only conclusion we can make is that the Shade is now flying under his own power.
How or why is anybody's guess.
(Personally, I suspect he's found a happy thought.)
(No telling what it could be, though)
