Origin

A Nazi spy who was hiding out in what he believed was a abandoned residence was actually in the house belonging to hero Shock Gibson. The Nazi sat in Gibson's Electrical Energizer mistaking it for a normal chair and was then given powers identical to Shock Gibson's.

Later, Shock and his Nazi counterpart battled on the high seas during an attack on ships carrying troops overseas. Shock Gibson could not defeat the Nazi because their powers were equal, so he stalled, waiting for their powers to run out. Once both of them were out of juice, Shock knocked out his fascist double with a right cross.

Notes

  • Many sites claim this character also called himself "Shock Gibson" however, this isn't true. Aside from the real Shock Gibson calling this character "Fritz" twice (which he could have been using in a derogatory sense since "Fritz" is a common German name)... no name was ever given to this character.
