History: Tom Dalton worked for an electric company as a lineman. An accident on the job exposed him to ten thousand D.C. volts of electricity, leaving him near death; a colleague rather bizarrely was inspired to revive him with an equal current A.C. voltage, which inexplicably actually worked. In addition, Tom learned he had gained incredible powers, which he used as the costumed crimefighter Magno.
