Powers and Abilities

The Shaker himself hasn’t really exhibited any skills, although he presumably managed to steal the suit himself.

The suit was developed for mining, allowing a single person to travel deep underground, literally coring out the ground as he goes, using a combination of high- and low-frequency vibrations that can pulverize rock and shale like powder. The suits vibrations can easily crumble large block of the scenery, sending large sections of rubble falling towards nearby pedestrians.

While the suit itself is constantly vibrating, making it hard for anyone or anything to remain attached to, it can also project vibratory attacks, either directing them by pointing his hands at the target, or sending them through the surrounding ground.

The suit can also, presumably, allow the wearer to travel through the ground at a reasonable pace, and likely has an inbuilt oxygen supply.


History

The mining suit was stolen by an unnamed thug, presumably the one who then proceeded to wear it to rob banks.

Shaker smashes a wall

His first such attempt caught the attention of Spider-Man, and the two fought. The abilities of the suit were enough to allow the newly christened Shaker to hold his own with Spider-Man for a while, until Spider-Man managed to throw him into a swimming pool.

The constant vibrations of the suit caused a series of dense and volatile waves to keep hitting him in the confined area, which subdued the Shaker until the police could arrive.


Personality

Apparently a fairly straightforward thug, who stole a suit he could have sold for millions overseas, and proceeded to use it to rob banks. He appears to have little in the way of subtlety, attacking any problems he encounters head on, and is easily angered if anyone gets in his way.

Design notes

The Thief Skill is purely supposition, based on him having stolen the suit, and just to give him something.
