Real Name: Allison Dillon
Identity/Class: Extratemporal (Alternate timeline,
Earth-MC2/Earth-982) human mutant
Group Membership: None
Enemies: Avengers (American Dream, Bluestreak, J2, Mainframe, Stinger,
Thunderstrike), Spider-Girl, Spider-Man (Peter Parker)
Electro (Maxwell Dillon, father), Marilyn (mother, deceased)
Aliases: None given
Base of Operations: New York City, New York (Earth-982)
First Appearance: Spider-Girl#51 (November, 2002)
Powers/Abilities: Aftershock possessed a natural ability to generate
large amounts of electrical power. She could project destructive bolts of electricity from her hands,
shocking her opponents, and causing wide-spread explosive destruction. Her body was highly charged, and
she could shock those who were foolhardy enough to grab hold of her. She could also fly, suspending herself
on fields of electrical charge.
(Spider-Girl#81 (fb) - BTS) <15-16 years before main story-line> -
When Allison Dillon was born, she possessed electrical powers
similar to that of her father, Electro. Unfortunately, the two were on different wavelengths,
and any physical contact resulted in painful electrical feedback.
At the request of her mother, Marilyn, Electro stayed away from his daughter.
(Spider-Girl#81 (fb) - BTS) - While her father was incarcerated, Allison's mother died, and
the girl was placed in the foster care system.
(Spider-Girl#51) - (Unnamed) - Aftershock blew out the window of a jewelry store in a mall during
a robbery. She battled Spider-Girl, without being named (although Spider-Girl advised her not
to use the name Electra), and was incapacitated, webbed up to be turned over to police.
(Spider-Girl#81) - Following an unsuccessful attempt to rob an empty armored vehicle,
Aftershock (revealing her costumed name for the first time) battled Spider-Girl.
When a security guard tried to physically restrain her, he was nearly electrocuted, and Aftershock
escaped while Spider-Girl performed CPR on the man.
At the request of her father, Electro, Spider-Man and Spider-Girl agreed to try to bring her in safely.
Spider-Girl encountered her in the process of robbing a jewelry store, and the two battled until the Avengers
arrived with her father.
Urging her not to make his mistakes over again, Electro embraced his daughter,
and after the two endured the painful feedback, they were tearfully reunited.
Aftershock surrendered to authorities; Spider-Man later commented that, as she was still a minor,
her sentence should be light, and she might have been paroled into her father's custody.
Comments: Created by Sean McKeever, Casey Jones.
The dating on the flashback to Aftershock's birth is based on the fact
that she is evidently a teenager at the time of the events of Spider-Girl#81,
but still a minor.
(Spider-Girl#100) - When Spider-Girl was briefly possessed by the Venom Symbiote, Aftershock
appeared among a crowd of foes during a hallucination. She also appeared in the gallery of rogues
in the same issue.
(Amazing Spider-Girl#15) -
Spider-Girl, under the influence of Mindworm, hallucinated that Aftershock was threatening her now-grown

Max Dillon, the original Electro, was the father of Allison, who would become Aftershock.
When his daughter was born, she had inherited her father's powers, but the two were
incompatible, generating painful electrical feedback on any contact.
At the request of her mother, Marilyn, Dillon stayed away from his daughter;
then, while he was serving time in prison, Marilyn died, and the girl was placed in foster care.
Out of jail, and retired from crime, Electro discovered that his daughter had become a thief.
Seeking to help her, he contacted the Avengers, and demanded to speak to Spider-Man,
who promised he would help bring Aftershock in.
The Avengers later brought him to where his daughter was battling Spider-Girl.
Urging her not to make his mistakes over again, Electro embraced Aftershock,
and after the two endured the painful feedback, they were tearfully reunited.
