Subj: Shocker has potential, but he needs more development, he could use a back story for example

> yeah hes one of those guys. hes a favourite but youre not sure why (i like him too but cant sat preciely why). i remember that scene in the deadly foes where spidey caught him in his civilian clothes and started taunting him. herman got his confendence back, put on his suit and kicked spideys butt shouting "the shocker is back!" i practically felt like cheering. then i felt guilty for rooting against spidey.
> i wonder what the best shocker story is? any opinions?

Shocker has potential, but he needs more development, I think giving him a back story explaining why he became a criminal in the first place would help him become a deeper character, also writing him as being consistently competent would help too.
