Until Shocker gets the right writer the same way the Rogues and Catman got he'll remain a damn joke in the marvel 616 Universe.

He's actually not doing too bad in 616, it's the Ultimate version that sucked.

He's had great moments in comics, cartoons and computer games, unlike other Spidey villains like Molten Man, Will O' Wisp or Trapster, to name a few.

I once stumbled upon an -epic- fanfiction storyline in which Shocker got tired of getting his ass kicked and being sent to prison; which led him to try his hand at being a hero. Definately one of the most under-used and under-appreciated characters in comics. He definately deserves his own series.


Do you have a link? I'd like to read that.

Shocker is one of my favourite Spider-Man villains and I agree, he's seriously under-rated. The first time I ever saw Spider-Man was in a cartoon, "Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends." The episode in question had Shocker as the villain of the week. Since then I've always liked him.

We still don't know his motivation why he never pursued legal jobs, and the whole he's greedy is flimsy and uncreative.
Also he is way to damn smart to be working for other super villains.

He has cracked safes which is hard to do, created the gauntlets in a freakin Prison, and knew he needed a protection suit which he also created.

It astounds me with that resume of feats persons seriously say he's not underrated, and it's not bad writing with him written as a thug.

It was brought up in the She-Hulk comic, but it's still vague, yes.

Both wear electical suits.

The one you mentioned uses actual electricity, if I'm not mistaken.

Shocker doesn't (the name is misleading). His vibro-units project vibrational air blasts.

Persons believe it's not bad writing that Shocker is shown as a thug after creating the protection suit and gauntlets in a Prison along with 1 of the best safe crackers.

That's like saying it's not bad writing when a bad guy says we can't enter that area because we would be trespassing after seeing a No Trespassing sign after him and others broke and entered a Government building, and succeeded robbing money in a Government Building.
