Shockwave once tried to purchase false identification papers so that he could escape arrest during the Civil War. The mercenary Vienna (secretly working with Misty Knight as part of a sting operation) offered Shockwave papers that would have established a new identity as "Dieter Wilhelm" from Amsterdam. Shockwave never actually used this alias, however, as he was arrested before he could receive the papers.

After this arrest, Shockwave was forcibly drafted into the Initiative. He was to be trained to work as a government-sanctioned super-hero. He apparently escaped or was released before ever operating as a "hero," however. Not long after the Civil War ended, Shockwave was once again operating as a criminal.
