History: (Marvel Super Heroes: Prince Namor, the Sub-Mariner - "Dr. Doom's Day") - Affected by Dr. Doom's hate-inducing Emotion-Charger device, Electro was one of the many supervillains that was driven to attack the mutant Allies for Peace at a ceremony at the Peace Building. As the Emotion-Charger manipulated several villains to publicly attack the Peace Building, Electro chose to attack during the Atlantean Attuma's invasion of the surface world alongside the Unicorn and Mandarin, using his powers to create a massive explosion.
Comments: Created by June Patterson, Don Christensen, Jewell Schubel, James Carmichael, Stan Lee, Grantray-Lawrence Animation, Jack Kirby, Gene Colan and Don Heck (see comments & appearances section).
Electro was only briefly seen as many other villains
affected by Dr. Doom's Emotion-Charger machine attacked the Peace
Building. We only get a glimpse of Electro, who uses his powers to
create an explosion, then we see other assembled villains get trounced
by assembled heroes. Strangely, Electro was nowhere to be seen during
the all-out battle between the heroes and the Emotion-Charger-affected
villains. Maybe he was drawn to the Peace Building to attack but fled
when other heroes besides the Allies for Peace showed up? Either that
or he was merely BTS during the entire attack and was apprehended by
the heroes after they defeated Attuma. At any rate, I listed all of the
villains affected by the Emotion-Charger as loose affiliations of
Electro, even if we didn't see him participate in the all-out battle.
Similarly, I listed all assembled heroes as his enemies.
Electro was not identified in the episode in which he shows up but he is presumed to be Electro based on his costume and powerset, despite have a very ridiculous color scheme on Earth-600026. Speaking of costumes, Electro wasn't wearing much of one, only a purple mask and green underpants with red electric designs running up and down his legs. He was naked otherwise. He was likely miscolored and not identified in his one and only appearance due to licensing issues regarding Electro's forthcoming appearance in the Spider-Man cartoon that would be on the airwaves a few months after his appearance in Marvel Super Heroes.
While Electro's eye color was impossible to determine for sure,
based on the quick glimpse we get of him in the episode, his eyes were
presumably blue and his height/weight were presumably 5'11"/165 lbs.,
respectively, based on the stats of his Earth-616 counterpart. Also,
while we don't know for sure, this Electro is presumably still Max
Dillon & it could be assumed that he received his powers in a
similar fashion to his Earth-616 counterpart.
The Marvel Super Heroes episode
credits were a little confusing to determine exactly who did what due
to how the episodes were made. You see, they were made using original
comic art with very limited animation, similar to a motion comic.
Therefore, the original comic artwork for the episodes was credited to
Jack Kirby, Gene Colan and Don Heck, but Grantray-Lawrence Animation
animated the original art. The animation team on the series (according
to IMDB) was: Bill Ackerman, Ellsworth Barthen, Robert Bentley, Dan
Bessie, William Butler, George Cannata, Ralph Coffman, Doug Crane, Ed
DeMattia, Irving Dressler, Otto Feuer, Martin Forte, Fred Grable,
Rollie Greenwood, Pat Jencks, Bror Lansing, Sal Maimone, Herb Mesirow,
Frank Onaitis, Chic Otterstrom, Curt Perkins, Anthony Rizzo, Ralph
Somerville, Milton Stein, Nick Tafuri, Reuben Timmins and Russ von
Neida, with Alvaro Arce, Mike Arens, Bill Cardoso, Jackie Gaumer,
Dorothy Gill, Herb Hazelton, Nikita Knatz, Ken Landau, Charles Lee,
Sparky Moore, Janine Patterson, Mike Royer, Joel Siebel, Adam
Szwejkowski and Doug Wildey comprising Grantray-Lawrence's Art
Department. Any of those artists could have worked on any of the Marvel Super Heroes episodes
so I just listed the art credit in this profile as "Grantray-Lawrence
Animation" to cover them all. Plus, that's how the production credit
was given in the series' end credits. As for the writers, Stan Lee was
listed as writer and editor on the series but it was really his
original comic stories that were adapted into cartoon form by the team
(or possibly one of the team, depending on the episode) of June
Patterson, Don Christensen, Jewell Schubel and James Carmichael. As
such, I listed both the original comic creators and the animation
team's credits as creators here, since Electro definitely did not look
so wild in his original comic incarnation.
