History: (Spider-Man Magazine I#10) - Lightning Bolt became a supervillain, battling enemies such as Cloudman, Dayelite, Cookoo and the Big Man.

Comments: Created by Athena Tan.

Lightning Bolt was part of the 1994 Spider-Man Magazine's "Create Your Own Super Hero or Super-Villain" section that ran in most earlier issues of the Magazine. In Lightning Bolt's case, Lightning Bolt was created by then-9-year-old Athena Tan of Makati, Philippines. As a fringe character, Lightning Bolt was not confirmed to exist on Earth-616 but there was no evidence to say Lightning Bolt didn't exist on Earth-616 either...

Lightning Bolt's height & weight were impossible to approximate as the character was never seen next to any character whose height & weight had been officially determined. Additionally, Lightning Bolt's eye color was also impossible to determine, as Lightning Bolt appeared to be wearing a mask. Lightning Bolt's hair color appeared to be gray but that could just be the mask and not Lightning Bolt's actual hair.

Lightning Bolt's origin was never given but for some reason, I'm leaning towards Lightning Bolt being a mutate of some sort.
