History: (Spider-Man & His Amazing Friends cartoon episode - "Along Came Spidey" (fb) - BTS) - The man who would become the Shocker either built himself or had built two gauntlets capable of producing powerful shockwaves. After later using the gauntlets as the criminal Shocker, he fought Spider-man and was arrested and put in prison.


(Spider-Man & His Amazing Friends cartoon episode - "Along Came Spidey") - Obtaining his gauntlets via unrevealed means, the Shocker broke out of prison with the help of the pilot Bancroft. Slipping into his costume, the Shocker swore revenge on Spider-Man.


The next day, the Shocker attacked an armored truck and, blasting the truck apart, the Shocker used his micro-shocks to break open a box containing precious gems. When Spider-Man swung by and snatched the gems away, the Shocker commented on meeting Spider-Man sooner than he would have liked. When Spider-Man's allies Iceman and Firestar also attacked, the Shocker blasted the street, causing a water main to rupture. As the two mutants contained the water, the Shocker was grabbed by Spider-Man but he knocked the hero away by vibrating. Taking aim at the dazed hero, the Shocker noticed Bancroft's helicopter landing nearby, prompting him to leave. The Shocker climbed a nearby ladder and was running across a roof when Spider-Man jumped behind him and webbed him up. The Shocker used his vibrations to shake the webbing free and blasted the roof under Spider-Man's feet, dropping him into the store below and indivertibly harming bystander May Parker when ceiling debris struck her. The Shocker and Bancroft then flew away as Spider-Man grieved over his injured aunt. The Shocker swore to get even with the hero before he could do anything else.


Some time later, the Shocker stood atop a building and started blasting random parts of the city, announcing more destruction unless Spider-Man surrendered himself over to the criminal. When the Spider-Friends attacked in response, the Shocker was ready. Firestar attacked first but Shocker blocked her flames by creating a vibrational force field. He then blasted Firestar, sending her crashing into a fountain. He demanded Spider-Man again but Iceman answered. Unimpressed, the Shocker stood still as Iceman encased him in ice, which he easily freed himself from by vibrating. He then blasted Iceman's ice sled, causing the frozen mutant to fall. Shocker ignored the hero's creation of an ice pole to slide to safety and yelled again for Spider-Man. He was answered directly by the hero this time and when the wall-crawler tried a frontal assault, the Shocker simply created another force field and bounced him across the street. When Spider-Man tried to catch his breath, the Shocker increased his gauntlets' power and blasted the building Spider-Man was perched on. Shocker readied himself for another attack but when Firestar melted his right gauntlet and Iceman froze his left, he tried to increase his suit's power (see comments) but a webline snagged the power source belt off on him. Fleeing, the Shocker leaped to a rope ladder dangled off Bancroft's helicopter but Firestar burned it away. Plummeting to the street, the Shocker was saved via a giant web created by Spider-Man and both he and Bancroft were hauled off by the police

Comments: Created by Donald F. Glut and Marvel Productions, Ltd. (see Appearances list for list of artists involved).

While his real name was never given in the one episode he appeared in, his is presumably a counterpart of Herman Schultz. --Proto-Man

John Stephenson was the credited voice actor for Shocker.

His physical stats are approximated from his Earth-616 counterpart.

You'd think having molten metal on his arm would be painful plus where exactly is his increased power going to go with one gauntlet melted and the other frozen?

It might be interesting to note that only Shocker's mask had the quilted, padded quality that his Earth-616 costume is known for. The rest of the yellow parts of his costume did not have this pattern, similar to how Spider-Man's costume in the 1967 animated series only had the webbing pattern in certain sections instead of all of the red parts. --Proto-Man

CLARIFICATIONS:
Earth-8107's Shocker
should be distinguished from:


Bancroft

A pilot, Bancroft flew a helicopter and aided the Shocker in his prison escape. He acted as the getaway driver for Shocker's robberies and attacks. When the Spider-Friends attacked the Shocker after damaging his suit, Bancroft lowered a rope ladder to assist the Shocker. After the Shocker was subsequently captured by Spider-Man, Bancroft tried to flee the scene but Iceman froze his rotator blades. Bancroft was then arrested and hauled away along with the Shocker by the police.
