It's not just Conway either. The various gangs, like the Enforcers and the group with Princess Python gave Spidey a lot of trouble. And when originally imagined, Green Goblin didn't have super strength, only "enhanced."

But to the topic, I think Shocker. So many of Spidey's enemies suffer from overconfidence or a personal vendeta. Shocker, at one point, knocked out Spider-Man and would be able to kill him, but decided not to because the price on his head alive was more than if he was dead. Shocker's a thug, a merc, not an overtly evil villain, and that knowing his limitations makes him a foe to be reckoned with.

It's "The Shocker" not "Shocker" \:\-\) and I agree with you.
