Real Name: Ray
Identity/Class: Human mutate
Occupation: Factory worker
Known Relatives: None
Base of Operations: U.S.A.
First Appearance: Amazing Man #26 (Centaur, January 1942)
Powers/Abilities: Ray generates a lethal electrical charge which he releases on contact or via conductive surfaces. To avoid killing innocents, he wears rubber gloves.
History: Ray worked in a factory making parts vital for the war effort. Discovering that the FBI suspected saboteurs had infiltrated the plant, Ray did some snooping of his own, only to be shoved off a gantry and fall into a dynamo. Surviving, he was thrown free, but discovered he now emitted a lethal electrical charge, which he could release along conductors or by direct contact; he used his new ability to kill the saboteurs (albeit he was trying to catch them alive).
Comments: Ray only had a single adventure, and never got round to wearing a costume.
