Electro-man and trusty companion The Mighty Jacket have been found, and how far away from gotham... now all he needs to do is learn how to keep the carpet at work from melting under him.
  • Let me be the first to say I find this shocking.
  • lol what would have happened if someone threw a bucket of water at him? explode? implode? shock the thrower? bleh prolly nothing.
  • Wow that was bizarre, yet really funny.
  • 30,000 volts of static buildup is large, but not outrageously so. The normal discharge you feel when getting a shock from a car door or a metal doorknob is typically 2000-3000 volts. A discharge of 30,000 volts would sting a bit, and has the potential to arc over a distance of up to 15mm. The power (and hence the current) involved in such a discharge wouldn't be lethal.
  • If I was him, I'd have become a super-villain, Electro-man!
  • shock the monkey?
  • Alternative sources of power: Wind, solar, and some Australian guy. Big Oil already has a contract out on him.
