Name: Anti Electric
First Appearance: Comic Cavalcade #27 (1948)
Creators: William Marston and H.G Peter
Abilities: Ability to create and operate an ‘anti electric dynamo’, allowing him to remotely deactivate any specific electrical signal worldwide for an indefinite period of time. Can target the electrical impulses within an individuals brain, deactivating them to render the individual braindead.
Backstory: Keen was a wealthy and greedy industrialist who was president of the international railway company. Ever hungry for more money, power, and influence, he sought to purchase the entirety of the company from its share holders so that he could continue his never ending quest for more.
However being refused, Keen would plot to force them to see things his way, leading to him creating a room sized ‘anti electric generator’ which would let him remote deactivate any electrical devices on any scale from anywhere in the world.
Thus donning the costume and moniker of ‘Anti Electric’ he would demand complete control of companies shares and stocks. First targeting his own railway which had been denied to him for so long, followed by telephone companies, electrical grids, even airlines whose planes plummeted without power.
Anti Electric cared not one iota for the suffering of others so long as he was able to hoard money and power. And if anyone refused him, Anti Electric could deactivate the electrical impulses in their brains, killing them.
