Electro (real name Maxwell "Max" Dillon) is an electric-powered supervillain and an enemy of Spider-Man. He is a member of the first Sinister Six, the second Sinister Six (tech) and the Sinister Seven.
In his original appearance, Electro appears like his classic mainstream counterpart. But when supercharged, he appears a living energy being. In his promotional picture he's wearing a black power suit resembling his movie counterpart.
Electro has fought Spider-Man on numerous times before his training with S.H.I.E.L.D.
When Spider-Man manages to taser him against the large television screen, Electro manages to disappear into the screen. Electro appears on television in his hyper-electrified form (which resembles his Ultimate Marvel form) and holds the city's electricity for ransom. Electro takes over Spider-Man's Spider-Cycle straight into town. Spider-Man manages to anticipate where Electro is as Electro charges the tram Spider-Man's team is on towards it's station. Spider-Man's team finds Electro in a part of town where he starts to turn some of the nearby electronicdevices into weapons. Electro then attacks Spider-Man as he remembers that the large television screen had super-charged him. Electro then heads to the Federal Reserve as Spider-Man and Nova follow him. Electro then takes over Spider-Man's electrical web containers and fires at a building crane as a diversion so that he can get into the Federal Reserve. Spider-Man's team catches up to Electro in the vault as Spider-Man tells his team that they must act like a team to take down Electro. Spider-Man comes up with a plan that involves him heading to the satellite above the Daily Bugle which launched him into the orbiting satellites. After defeating Batroc the Leaper, Spider-Man swings towards the large television screen that Electro is in. As Electro emerges from the screen, Spider-Man's team takes out the Electro clones that emerge from their electronics. Electro loses control and emerges from the screen in normal form and has been confused from the Electro clones that he has been controlling. Spider-Man then knocks out Electro.
Electro is later hired as part of the Sinister Six. After Spider-Man called his team, he fought Iron Fist but was defeated by White Tiger. He was then locked away in S.H.I.E.L.D.'s new headquarters.
Electro is sprung from Ryker's Island and armored up with stolen OsCorp tech with the reassembled Sinister Six. Electro fights Spider-Man then Nova and assists the group's gang assault on Iron Patriot but is eventually defeated by Spider-Man.
He escapes S.H.I.E.L.D custody with the Green Goblin.
In the multipart "Spider-Verse", the Green Gobin fuses Eelctro to the Siege Perilous to collect the DNA of Spider-Man 2099, Spider-Girl, Spider-Man Noir, Spider-Ham, Spyder-Knight and Miles Morales. At the end of the adventure, Spider-Man uses Electro to bring the other Spiders (dubbed Web-Warriors by Spider-Man) to help him defeat the mutated Green Goblin. Electro then takes control of the fallen Helicarrier that Green Goblin used as a hideout, transforing it into a giant robot ansd going on a rampage until he is stopped by the Web Warriors.
