Electro and His Devastating Attacks on Spiderman


electro (marvel comics)

Electro is a fictional character in the Marvel comic book world. Developed by artist Jack Kirby and introduced in Amazing Spider-man (asures), Electro is a high-voltage villain who uses various forms of electricity to immobilize his victims. Also known as Electro-Punisher, he is obsessed with stealing electricity from other superheros and uses it to create more havoc in his quest to control the law and spread chaos. In the comics, Electro is a fictional character made up of a suit that looks like a spider web on a yellow suit, gloves, headpiece, and boots.

Electro is an anti-hero who does not have his own comic book. Instead, he is featured in the Amazing Spider-man comics, where he is one of many villains to take up the fight against Peter Parker, the original Spider-man. The villain first appeared in the Amazing Spider-man comic book’s third chapter. There, Electro was shown using his electrical glove, which he later uses to paralyze Peter Parker. He then proceeds to escape while Peter Parker is captured in the course of Electro’s crime spree.

An Overview

Though not originally appearing as a supervillain, Electro is actually one of the more interesting Marvel comic book supervillains. A mysterious villain, Electro is an arch-nemesis of Spiderman, who wants to use his power for evil. However, Spiderman often has Electro run off after he deals out justice to those who cross his path. Also, during one story, Electro attacks Spiderman and when he tries to catch him, Spiderman bites Electro, making him temporarily unconscious.

However, despite his intimidating appearance, in the comics, Electro is actually a very powerful and cunning villain. Early on, Electro was a circus performer who roamed the streets of New York city using his various electrical powers. He later found a way to miniaturize himself, so that he could take on various forms. These various forms include the Electro Costume, Electro Shoes, Electro Goggles, and the Electro Handgun.

Electro And Spiderman Facts

As he later discovered in the comics, Electro possesses psionic powers stemming from the shards of metal that fuse with his fingers. In addition, this power allows Electro to teleport himself through time and across the entire universe using his telekinetic powers. However, since his birth, he has also gained access to other individuals’ powers such as Peter Parker’s spider powers and Cyclops’ lightning powers. It is because of these various powers that Electro has become a well-known Marvel villain. Also, as he battles Spiderman, Electro has also taken on the personality of Electrogeist, a ghostly menace whom he can take over the Electro Universe using his clairvoyant powers to control everyone in it.

Electro is a fictional comic book super villain that was first introduced in the pages of the Amazing Spider-man comic book. This character’s creation was inspired by the experimental radiation that was being used to test the effects of electricity on the molecular level. After years of testing, scientist Dr. Curt Connor developed a formula that was called “oxytocin.” With this chemical, Connor and several members of his team were able to generate an electro-mechanical discharge similar to what is known as “ESD” that was later classified as a felony by the criminal courts of both America and New York. For this reason, Electro was incarcerated in a federal prison in exchange for revealing secrets about the blueprints for a new super-villain known as Electrodermis.

In The End

After Electro gained complete control of himself, he traveled to the Baxter Building where, using the mysterious shards of metal that housed the shards of Electro-Genetic Symbiote, he created a new personality known as Syndrome. Syndrome was given the composite capabilities of Spiderman and Wonder Man, giving him the ability to simulate the miraculous strength and agility of Spiderman but with a few limitations. For example, Spiderman could not jump to an elevated location like a building or into vehicles. Likewise, Syndrome could not use his energy blasts or high-technology equipment like goggles, irons, etc. Due to the vast powers of Electro-Genetic Symbiote, Syndrome was a highly effective criminal whose crime fighting tactics were formidable enough to foil the villains Dr. Curtitta, Dr. Wahlberg, and Dr. Oddus.
