(Uncanny X-Men#476 (fb) - BTS) - Davan Shakari, the Shi'ar agent on Earth, set up a Shi'ar base on Earth in a dormant volcano in upstate New York. He kidnapped three humans and tortured and modified them, turning them into deadly robotic Shi'ar agents. They would live indefinitely due to a device planted in their brains, and were kept dormant until they sensed intruders in the base. Shakari returned to the Shi'ar Empire and left the Shockers behind. Years passed with them in dormancy.

(Uncanny X-Men#476) - The Shockers were awakened when a group of X-Men entered the base. They assessed the threat levels of the mutants and fired a collapsing energy field at Polaris, determining her to be the most dangerous. One traveled at super speed and launched himself at Warpath while another fought Nightcrawler and Marvel Girl, who used her telepathic abilities to determine that the Shockers were innocent and truly desired only death. Warpath killed one with a blow to the head while the third advanced on Darwin, who evolved himself into a super strong form and knocked the Shocker through a window, causing it to fall to its death. Warpath then killed the third Shocker with a Vibranium blade.
