Powers/Abilities: Shaddock had no superhuman abilities. He carried a gun and was trained in espionage and a decent fighter.
History: (BTS) 20 years ago - Shaddock was trained in Algeria by the communist Red Skull during the time that Richard and Mary Parker were double agents undercover there. He was assigned a position as a deep cover "mole" in the FBI. When he found out that Richard and Mary were spies, he worried that they would blow his cover, but Red Skull had them killed, and his worries were put to rest.
(Amazing Spider-Man I#368) - Peter Parker, who was walking to his Aunt May's house, spotted Shaddock comfortably leaned against a tree across the street watching the house. Parker confronted Shaddock about this. Shaddock flashed his FBI badge, yelled at Peter Parker, and stormed off angry.
(Amazing Spider-Man I#369) - Peter Parker heard that Electro was rampaging. He changed into Spider-Man to get to the scene, and saw Shaddock standing outside the building his parents were in, still spying on them.
(Amazing Spider-Man I#370) - Shaddock purposely bumped into Richard Parker (or rather a replicoid of him see comments). He acted like he was surprised to see them and asked them if he knew them from somewhere. The Parkers, who were having trouble remembering their time before spending 20 years in a soviet prison, didn't remember him, and walked away.
(Amazing Spider-Man I#371) - Richard and Mary Parker went looking for Shaddock in hopes to learn more about their past. He pointed a gun at them and told them to get into his car. As he drove away, Peter Parker through a tracer on his car.
(Amazing Spider-Man I#372-373) - Peter Parker tracked Shaddock to an old meat processing plant. Shaddock revealed his past to the Parkers, of how he was a "mole" in the FBI, and how he was a mercenary who was trained by the communist Red Skull. Parker, who had been standing on the beams on the ceiling, had the beams collapse under his feet, and fell onto the conveyer which led into an inferno that was meant to melt the tallow from the side of beef. The gas from a broken pipe prevented Parker from moving, and he was moved by the conveyer toward the rendering furnace. However, Richard Parker tried to attack Shaddock while Mary Parker helped their son off the conveyer. Shaddock quickly got the better of Richard, and held a gun to his head, prompting the other two Parkers to surrender. Peter knew he was going to kill the three of them anyway, so while Shaddock was distracted by pushing Richard in with Peter and his mother, Peter fired his web shooter from the shadows, and pulled Shaddock off his feet, and followed up by knocking him out with a single left hook to the face. After the authorities showed up to take care of Shaddock, a FBI officer pulled Peter Parker aside and asked him to keep quiet about this, since the FBI didn't want the public to know that they had a "mole" for twenty years. Peter made a deal with him and agreed to keep quiet in return for the FBI examining a receiver that he claimed was for a school project, and see where it got its commands from. (In reality, the receiver was from a small mechanical spider, of which many had been placed around the town to send messages to Alistaire Smythe as to Spider-Man's location. See the Spider-Slayer profile for more on that story.)

The Richard and Mary Parker that Shaddock met in Amazing Spider-Man #368-372, were actually replicoids made by the Chameleon, in an attempt to find the identity of Spider-Man, since he knew Parker had a connection with him (I hope no irony is lost on anyone). These replicoids were destroyed, and Spider-Man is still an orphan.
CLARIFICATIONS: Agent Charlie Shaddock has no connection to:
