Electro – Spider-Man Villain
Electro is a classic looking Spider-Man villain. He may be something on a one-trick pony, but you have to admit, the corny looking lightning bolt head gear is a great visual. I can't recall anyone even using Electro all that much in the past few (or more) years. He made an appearance or two in Ultimate Spider-Man (with an uncool, redesigned look) and one on the MTV Spider-Man cartoon, but hardly anything all in the Marvel Universe proper. I think we should start a petition for a starring role in Spider-Man 4.
My favorite entry in the bio below is the line about him being "extremely sensitive" to anything that might short-circuit him. . . Maybe he starts to cry if you confront him with a squirt gun or bucket of water.

Superhuman physical powers: Electro can generate electrostatic energy through his body at a rate of about 1,000 volts per minute and store up to 1000,000 volts. At ten feet, his maximum charge is more than enough to kill a normal man. Electro can employ this electrostatic energy as lightning arcs from his fingertips at 1,100 feet per second for about 100 feet.
Superhuman mental powers: Electro can override any electrically-powered device and manipulate it according to his mental commands
Special limitations: By using an external electrical power source to recharge his body's energy reserves, Electro could expend electricity indefinitely without diminishing his personal reserves. When he is fully charged, Electro is extremely sensitive to anything that may "short-circuit" him, such as water
Source of superhuman powers: An unusually configured magnetic field was created when struck by lightning while Dillon was holding live, high-tension wires and a wound reel of one-inch cable.
