Since an early age, Dr. Sergi Samsonov was led to believe he was born in a Moscow slum just outside the Kremlin sometime during the late 1970's, during the heart of the Cold War in Communist Russia. Orphaned since the day he was born, Sergi spent much of his childhood moving from one orphanage to another until he was old enough to venture out on his own, surviving day by day in the Russian countryside. Sergi's actual date of birth and age have been determined to be unknown at this time due to the lack of information gathered by the orphanges he was placed in during his early childhood. Because of this, very little details of his childhood are known prior to his enrollment into Moscow University.
During his time at the University he discovered he was an amazing student excelling in chemistry, biology and nuclear physics. By the time he graduated from Moscow University, Sergi had recieved PhD's in all three subjects and was considered by some in the government and the science community to be the smartest man in the Soviet Union. After graduation he seemed to have vanished off the face of the Earth but in fact was recruited by the KGB to become head of their weapons development program as well as a field agent on sensitive missions of the highest importance. Sergi also did a handful of jobs for a man named Ivan Medvedev who, as it turns out, played a very important role in the creation of the Soviet Shocker mantle. At present time we are still trying to determine what the real truth is behind the relationship between Sergi Samsonov and Ivan Medvedev but we have yet to discover anything substantial. Data tells us Dr. Samsonov served in this function and role with the KGB until the fall of the Soviet Union where he once again vanished.
Through the help of Ivan Medvedev's "Foundation For Those Left Behind" he recently surfaced in Paragon City where he was given a post teaching at Paragon University, we are still trying to determine how he obtained that postion. It is speculated that during the time between the fall of the Soviet Union and his apperance in Paragon City he was in hiding building his "Shocker Suit," quite possibly with the help of Ivan Medvedev, although this can not be confirmed. All that can be confimed is that Dr. Samsonov used his extreme intelligence to build a form fitting suit which was bound to his skin and allows him to tap into the electrical fields within the Earths atmosphere to control and manipulate electricity.
It has been concluded that his love for Mother Russia and its communist and socialist ideals have lead him to continue their development and evolution to other parts of the world, most notably somewhere in the West. It is now apparent that he has gone to Paragon City to dawn his suit in order to fight crime and spread the ideals of communism to the people of Paragon City. We speculate he will even try to find other individuals with his beliefs in order to start a revolution the likes the world has never seen.
