A thief named Herman Schultz was caught by Spider-Man. While in jail, an Electric symbiote bonded with him, giving him special powers: With his left hand he could fire bursts of vibrating air, and with his right hand he could fire electric bolts. Calling himself the Shocker, he soon found out about the symbiotes, and joined them against the resistance. He is training under fellow electric symbiote Electro. During the power station battle, his symbiote was fried by a dying Iron Man, and Schultz fell to his death. However, Shocker returns later in the series. It is unclear if Schultz is still in the symbiote, or if it found another host.
