Earthshaker is a superhuman wrestler that was boosting jewelery stores to attract costume crime fighters. Earthshaker wanted to build up his reputation and was looking for heavyweights like Nova, Speedball and Silver Spider. His first encounter was with Ladyhawk during a robbery at a jewelery store but she was no match for his fighting skills and superhuman strength. Ladyhawk was hospitalized after a beat down and informed her friend, Spider Girl of the foe. Spider Girl encountered Earthshaker himself during a daytime robbery and he snapped her webbing with his bare hands during the fight. Earthshaker told Spider Girl that he wanted to build up his reputation by beating up heroes and gain a contract with the Unlimited Class Wrestling Federation. Earthshaker was soon recruited into the Redeemer program by Agent Weadon. Assigned to a SHIELD transport mission to protect 'Specimen 297', Earthshaker, working alongside Kaine was warned about turning rogue, before the team encountered the Contessa Valentina Allegra de la Fontaine, who was working to undermine the operation. Following this, Earthshaker (along with the rest of Weadon's team) were temporarily reassigned under Maria Hill's command and sent to bring in Spider-Girl for her involvement in the release of 'Specimen 297'. Finding themselves in a three-way battle with Carnage and Spider-Girl, Mr. Abnormal, Earthshaker, and Killerwatt were easily defeated by Carnage.
