Maxwell Dillon has been one of Spider-Man’s most frequent and enduring adversaries, often fighting alongside some of the more powerful masterminds in the web-head’s rogues gallery, rather than creating intricate plots of his own. Raised by his overprotective mother, after his father abandoned them, Max had ambitions of being an electrical engineer. However, after being convinced by his mother that he was not smart enough to pursue such a career, Max instead reluctantly took a job as a lineman for an electric company. While repairing a power line still connected to its spool, Max was struck by lightning. Instead of being killed, the freak accident caused a mutagenic change in his nervous system, allowing him to generate and control vast amounts of electricity. After creating a colorful costume, Max turned to a life of crime as Electro.
Marvel Legends Electro
Nicely sculpted heads
Above average articulation
Not a fan of the electricity hands
Electro is a cool choice for a villain and has both classic and modern heads included with the figure. I’m not a huge fan of the “electricity hands” but I can see how a kid would enjoy it more than a collector would. Solid paint deco and crazy articulation. Good for hardcore Spider-Man collectors but could be a pass for a casual fan.
