Trophy: Shock and Awe
Defeat Shocker Bronze

Financial Shock is the fourteenth main mission in Marvel's Spider-Man. Spider-Man learns that Shocker has escaped prsion, and must chase him.


After helping out at one of Harry Osborn's research stations, Spider-Man receives a call from Yuriko Watanabe that the Shocker has escaped police custody, having apparently been let out by a guard, and is robbing again. On the way there, he receives a call from Mary Jane Watson where she explains the Inner Demons have attempted to fill the vacuum left by Wilson Fisk.

Upon meeting Shocker in the bank, a battle ensues. During the fight, Spider-Man gains enough information to determine that Shocker is working, under duress, for the Inner Demons. Spider-Man successfully apprehends Shocker at the bank, and remarks that Shocker's fear suggests the Inner Demons are something to be feared too. He calls Yuri to inform her, and she says he will be escorted to the Raft.


After arriving at the waypoint, the boss battle against Shocker begins after a short cutscene. The fight consists of plenty of dodging, as Shocker uses not only an electrical blast from a distance, but an area-of-effect when he lands near Spider-Man. The best time to strike is when he has temporarily exhausted his energy and is standing still — his bubble will be flickering. In this instance, throw an object (a piece of debris) against him and then attack.

During the second part of the fight, after Shocker escapes from being webbed the first time, he then starts using a tremor-type ability. It is important for players to stay off the ground as much as possible if in his line of fire. During the tremor attack, he is vulnerable to slinging items at him from above will stop this, after which Spider-Man is free to descend and attack as usual. Repeat this until the next phase.

During the final phase of the fight, Shocker will remain still but fire fairly quickly. Spider-Man will need to keep dodging the attacks until there are brief pauses. During these, Spider-Man can take advantage of these to web-pull the supports above him that hold the world in place. Once these are gone, the art falls atop Shocker. He will try to break free using his suit, but it will bust and explode in the process.

After the battle, downtime occurs in which a side mission or two can be completed before the next story mission, "Wheels within Wheels", begins.
