Shellshock is a fictional character in the Marvel Universe.

Publication history[edit]

Shellshock first appeared in Fantastic Four Annual #5 (November 1967), and was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.

Fictional character biography[edit]

Shellshock was a flunky of Psycho-Man. When he left Psycho-Man’s employ, he kept the weapon designed for him and teamed up with another former flunky of Psycho-Man, Live Wire.[1] They attempted to steal Alicia Masters’s statues, but were defeated by the Thing.[volume & issue needed]

Shellshock was present at the “Bar With No Name” attending a meeting by the former supervillain Gary Gilbert (Firebrand) to discuss the menace of the Scourge of the Underworld. Ironically, the Scourge had already infiltrated the meeting, disguised as the bartender, and opened fire on the assembled villains, killing most of them, including Shellshock.[2]


Shellshock used a special handgun that fired assorted projectiles, including shock blasts, microwave energy, gas grenades, explosive miniature missiles, heat-seeking and guided projectiles, and an expanding yeast-putty which entangled opponents.
