The Shocker: Legit is a fanfic by Creator/MaxLandis (son of director John Landis), and is about the Shocker (Herman Schultz) trying to go legit. Big surprise, huh? There's also a lot of Marvel references, appearances by a handful of other superheroes and supervillains, an expansive conspiracy theory, the Shocker's interactions with his best friend, The Rhino, who is a bit of a [[TheDitz ditz]], and the superb narration told in the voice of The Shocker. It also fleshes out both The Shocker and the Rhino as friends (in some pretty heartwarming scenes). The fanfic itself is highly quotable. The Shocker kind of turns into a MartyStu by the end, but overall it's definitely worth a look.

-->'''Shocker''': Here’s a quick one for you: A woman is giving birth. The doctor picks up the baby and slaps its ass to start it crying, but it stays quiet. The doctor lets out this crazy scream, and starts punching the baby in the face, and then picking it up and smashing it against the wall, and then just throwing it on the ground and stomping on it. The mother is screaming and screaming, but in her condition, she can’t really do anything. The doctor lets out this great last war-cry, and then hurls the bloody lump of baby through the window, sending it tumbling four stories to the ground below. He laughs, calming down, and turns to the mother. “Just kidding, miss; it was dead when it came out.” ... The moral is this: Things are never as bad as they seem. Usually, they’re worse.
* {{Deadpan Snarker}}: The Shocker, full-stop. Though some supporting characters occasionally fill this role, as well.
* {{Did Not Do The Research}}: Reed Richards did ''not'' invent the Ultimate Nullifier.
* TheDitz: The Rhino.
