Shock Units: The Shocker wears a set of gauntlets that can be used to produce vibrational frequencies. This allows him to cause extra damage when punching and to fire a vibro-blast capable of causing serious damage. There are smaller vibro units built into his costume, which cause damage if he is grappled.
Body Armour: The Shocker's padded costume provides protection against vibrations and some physical attacks.
Herman Schultz was an unsuccessful burglar with an aptitude for working with tools. During his third prison term, Schultz was assigned to work in the prison workshop, at which time he became determined to develop a tool that would open any safe quickly and silently. Using stolen parts, he built a prototype device that produced vibrational waves to shake a door loose, and used it to escape. He was nearly killed by the shock-wave feedback, and once in his own workshop he created a special uniform of foam-lined fabric to absorb the vibrations. He placed vibro-shock units on his wrists to be activated by thumb controls, and dubbed himself the Shocker.
