Powers/Abilities: The Shaker's suit can generate a series of high- and low-frequency vibrations that combine to pulverize stone, bricks, steel, or lead.  He can vibrate opponents (and webbing) off him, causing them great physical pain in the process.  The suit is powered, enabling the wearer to operate without tiring for long periods of time.  The suit is also highly durable and waterproof.


History: (Amazing Spider-Man I#501 (fb) ) - The man who would become the Shaker stole a prototype mining suit from DeepCore Tech.

(Amazing Spider-Man I#501 (fb) ) - Wearing the suit, the thief robbed a bank and blasted his way out of it, proclaiming himself to be "the Shaker".  Spider-Man attacked him, but was vibrated right off him.  They battled for two hours, moving from rooftop to rooftop, until the Shaker sent a giant chunk of rubble plummeting to the streets below.  As the Shaker tried to escape, Spider-Man webbed up the rubble and sent it crashing back down onto the Shaker.  Protected by his suit, the Shaker pulverized the wreckage and collapsed the roof under Spider-Man's feet, sending him plunging into the spa below them.  After a further struggle, Spider-Man threw the Shaker into a swimming pool.  His vibrations created a large series of waves, which bounced off the sides of the pool and into him, pummeling the criminal into submission.

Comments: Created by J. Michael Straczynski, John Romita, Jr., & Scott Hanna.

With a competent guy in the suit, the Shaker could actually be a legitimate threat.
