SHOCKER Strikes Again In Latest AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Viral Article
The latest edition of The Daily Bugle has been released on the official Amazing Spider-Man 2 Tumblr page. A previous article centered on a string of bank robberies and hinted that notorious Spider-Man rogue Shocker was behind it. Well tonight’s article confirms that Herman Shultz aka Shocker was indeed responsible for the bank heists.
These viral articles have been hinting at a lot of famous foes, and with the recent news of a Sinister Six movie, there’s no telling which ones are just nods to the comics and which ones will actually materialize on the big screen. At the absolute least, it confirms that these characters exist in this movie universe. It’s also worth pointing out that NYPD Special Crimes Unit Detective Stan Carter is known as Sin-Eater in the comics. Sin-Eater was a very violent vigilante who was partly responsible for the failure of Eddie Brock‘s journalistic career and his eventual transformation to Venom. What do you think about the latest Bugle article?

A shocking Midtown bank robbery was foiled yesterday by Spider-Man. New York’s superhuman vigilante caught the mechanically augmented robber, suspected in two previous bank heists, as he fled the scene with the stolen loot.
Police arrived on the scene as Spider-Man finished webbing up the suspect, who was arrested and later identified as disgruntled engineer, Herman Schultz. Schultz created wrist-gauntlets that are capable of emitting a vibratory wave of pressure that proved capable of tearing apart a four-foot thick steel vault.
NYPD Special Crimes Unit Detective Stan Carter stated that Schultz had officially been remanded into custody and is being held at the Ravencroft Institute pending his preliminary hearing. When asked how a “disgruntled engineer” could create such dangerous weapons, Carter said, “Shocking, right? All that genius but no escape plan.”
