Dynamo. “The dynamic man of electricity, Electro, whose body is charged with superhuman power, defends humanity against the cruel ravages of criminals and war makers.” Electrical scientist Jim Andrews prevents a lab accident by leaping between two electrodes to act as a conductor. Exposed to huge amounts of electricity, he gains super-powers. After his initial appearance he changed his name from Electro to Dynamo. He can project electricity from his hands and electrocute people by touch. He fights the Genius, Stark's Super Science Spies, saboteurs, The Invention Destroyers, and the Crime Dealer, and appears in stories with titles like "Dynamo and the Sinister Agents of the Red Star," "The Lightning Men of Betelguese," and "The Death Ray."
