Shocker's Gauntlet is a mechanical gauntlet that had been originally used by Crossbones as part of his Battlefield Suit. Following Crossbones' demise, the Tinkerer had managed to recover the Gauntlet and used Chitauri technology to enhance it's power. Jackson Brice then used the Gauntlet and began referring to himself as the Shocker, before he was murdered by Adrian Toomes and Herman Schultz took the Gauntlet.
The gauntlet was initially a part of Crossbones' Battlefield Suit, which he had used to smash down several doors on his way to completing his mission to steal a biological weapon during the Attack on the IFID Headquarters. However, when Crossbones had fought against Captain America, using the Gauntlet's powerful punches and hidden blades to his advantage, one of the gauntlets was torn away from him and thrown it on the ground, before the other was destroyed when Crossbones activated his suicide bomb vest.
In the aftermath of the defeat of Crossbones, the discarded gauntlet was retrieved by Damage Control, only for it to then be subsequently stolen by Adrian Toomes and in turn modified by Tinkerer, increasing it's power by combining it with Chitauri and Ultron based technology. The updated gauntlet was intended for sale on the black market by Toomes' associate Jackson Brice, who demonstrated the weapon to their potential sellers, while he used the moniker of Shocker.
After Spider-Man intrudes on an arms deal and is accidentally forced to let his presence be known, he engages in a fight with Shocker and his partner Herman Schultz. In order to defend himself, Shocker had equipped himself with the gauntlet and punched Spider-Man, as he then proceeded to shoot at him with the Chitauri Gun multiple times. Unable to shake him off, Schultz called Toomes to help them as they returned back to their base of operation.
Returning into Adrian Toomes' Headquarters, Brice relished over the aftermath of the fight, although Toomes berated him for his reckless antics. As Brice attempted to brush off Toomes' words, Toomes fired him from the crew. Angered, Brice threatened to expose all Toomes' actions and was murdered with a Chitauri Gun as a result by Toomes, who then took the gauntlet from Brice's remains and passed it down to Schultz, appointing him to become their new Shocker.
Having been given Jackson Brice's Gauntlet, Schultz spent time in their Headquarters practicing using it, as he punched their van and watched it be launched backwards. The gauntlet was employed on the Staten Island Ferry, with Schultz keeping it hidden under a coat to avoid suspicion while he went to meet with Mac Gargan to arrange a sale of their Chitauri and Ultron based technology. However, before the deal was complete, Spider-Man appeared and confronted them.
Spider-Man swiftly subdued Gargan, as Shocker readied his Gauntlet as he tried to attack Spider-Man. However, Spider-Man was ready for the attack and used his Synthetic Webbing to trap Shocker onto the Ferry's railing. Before Shocker could be arrested by the FBI, he was rescued by the Vulture, who then used a Chitauri Gun to destroy the railing, freeing Shocker's Gauntlet and allowing them both to escape, while Spider-Man was forced to rescue the civilians from danger.
When Spider-Man, clad in his homemade suit, went out into the bus yard to chase down Adrian Toomes, he was ambushed by Schultz, who stated that Spider-Man had made the wrong choice. After remarking on Spider-Man's "crappy costume", Schultz started beating Spider-Man around the bus yard, with Spider-Man, having lost his web-shooters, powerless to fight back. Before Schultz could finish him off however, he was stopped by Ned Leeds, who provided a distraction long enough for Spider-Man to retrieve his web-shooters and web Schultz to a bus. Tiny McKeever stole the gauntlet from Shocker before police arrived, and he later showed it off to his friend in a video.
