Spider-Man Reboot – Potential Villains10.10.08 # Sequel # 373 Comments
Herman Schultz is a brilliant inventor and engineer who becomes a burglar. When he’s incarcerated, he develops “vibro-smasher” gauntlets to escape. The gauntlets project a concentrated blast of air which vibrates at an intense frequency, allowing him to throw long range vibrational punches, and shock waves which rock structures to destruction. Shocker is a rational ‘professional’ who aims to protect his reputation and make a criminal living, rather than pursuing any mad vengeance against Spiderman.
