Herman Schultz is a criminal and the super villain known as Shocker.
Shocker was a criminal, who at some point started using wrist lasers. He teamed up with Vulture and they robbed a bank. Spider-Man chased Shocker through the Grand Central Station into the sewers and took him down in a subway, where he was captured by police.
Two years later, he escapes prison while participating in a contest arranged by Quentin Beck, who was trying to prove Spider-Man's powers were fake. Despite having gained access to an experimental space propulsion system that enhanced his powers, he was defeated by Spider-Man and the Black Cat.
