Shockwave was former Maggia member who was hired by Obadiah Stane to be part of his Guardsmen along with Force. They set up crimes and disasters that they can stop before Iron Man to discredit him. When Iron Man found out who they were, he revealed their real identities, making them and their newest member, Firepower, attack Iron Man. With the help of War Machine, Iron Man stopped Firepower, and Force and Shockwave surrendered. Shockwave is also an Australian and has the adjoining accent.
Shockwave Armor: Shockwave uses an armored suit that is a shoddy copy of Iron Man's. The suit's design resembles the Stealth Armor , only with a yellow/white color scheme. However, unlike the Stealth Armor, Shockwave Armor doesn't have the invisibilty function. It gives him the following abilities:
- Superhuman Strength: It enhances his strength to superhuman levels.
- Flight: It has jet boots that allow flight.
- Vibrational Waves: The armor can generate shock waves from his gauntlets as blasts or as minor earth quakes.
