The thing about Electro is that, really, this guy should be a massive threat in Marvel with his powers. But for whatever reason he's portrayed as this D-List buffoon.

It was lampshaded once when Loki took over Electro's body and proceeded to kick all kinds of @$$ while mentioning how Electro is stupid enough to waste his power robbing banks.
That comes up in my novel too -- something happens to Electro to make him a more potent threat than he usually is. He has the same powers he always has, but starts applying them in ways that wouldn't normally have occurred to him.
