Origin
Origin
Human mutate; High-wire lineman Maxwell Dillon was struck by lightning while in contact with power lines still connected to their spool. The unusually configured magnetic field generated by the wound spool of cable and live, high-tension wires induced a body-wide mutagenic change to his nervous system. Dillon found himself transformed into a living electrical capacitor, powered by the micro-fine rhythmic muscle contractions that normally regulate body temperature.

Early Years

Maxwell "Max" Dillon was born in Endicott, New York where his father was a struggling accountant, having too many difficulties on keeping and maintaining his job. Because of this, Max and his family constantly found themselves moving from borough to borough throughout New York which also caused Max into to becoming a secluded child, seeing how it was hard for him making new friends due his family constantly moving. Max's father eventually abandoned the family, Maxwell’s mother began to become overprotected over him as he grew into adulthood. Wanting to find some independence within his life, Maxwell wanted to go to college after senior high school, but his mother would disagree with Max’s choice, suggesting that he should get a job as a lineman instead, since he was so skilled at it due to his father teaching him. At the age of twenty-four, his mother died and Maxwell pursued his goals and later became one of the most notable and well experienced linemen ever known, dedicating his honor to his parents.

Through years of having to finding the most perfect job for him, Max went through life ignored and overlooked. He also never stood up for himself, holding in a lot of anger. Eventually, e got a job at the top-notch organization, Hammer Industries as an electrical engineer and designed the power grid for their new power plant. However, he got no credit for any of his work. However, despite of this, his co-worker, fiancée and long-time sweetheart, Norma Lynn, never gave up on him, serving as Max's continuous motivation, much to his delight and glee having the love of his life persistently supporting him and loving him for what he was.

Powers and Abilities

Powers

Electrostatic Energy Generation: Electro possesses the ability to bodily generate electrostatic energy which he can release or harness for a number of effects. He is powered by the micro-fine rhythmic muscle contractions that normally regulate body temperature. His body can generate electricity at a rate of about 10,000 volts per minute, up to his maximum storage capacity of 10,000,000 volts. At that point, his body automatically stops producing electricity. As he expends his electrostatic energy, his body automatically begins to recharge the stores. Electro can mentally control the amount of electricity he discharges, anywhere from a single volt to his full 10,000,000 volt charge at once. At ten to thirty feet, his maximum charge is more than enough to kill a man. Electro can also use his body as a transformer, touching an outside power source (such as a generator) and channeling it through his body for use. The amount of electricity he can transform above his body's maximum storage capacity is unknown.

Electro can employ his electrostatic energy in a number of ways:

  • Lighting Bolt Projection
  • Electromagnetic Propulsion via Electrical Lines and Bridges
  • Electrical Detection
  • Electrocution
  • Recharging
  • Electrical Conversion into Enhanced Physical Attributions
  • Metal Ionization
  • Disruption of Wall-Crawling Abilities
  • Localized Electromagnetic Storms
  • Electromagnetic Manipulation
  • Immunity to Electricity
