Magno (II). Tom Dalton, a humble electric company lineman, is fed "10,000 DC volts" in an accident, and almost immediately afterwards is "shocked back to life by an equal current of AC volts." This gives me a variety of superpowers, which he uses to fight crime, although he continues his work as a lineman. He can use his hands like magnets, drawing bullets and other metal to them, and can even heat his powers enough to melt the bullets. When he hits someone, they receive an electric shock. He can also recharge himself by exposing himself to electrical current. He appears in stories with titles like “The Electro Paralyzer Ray” and “Men Into Monsters.”
