- I don't want to be a hero anymore. That ship has sailed. When I first started off, no one appreciated me because I wasn't an Avenger, and I don't want to be one! If they won't respect me, I will make them fear me!
When Max Dillon first discovered his mutant electrical abilities, he decided to become a hero called Electro. During his first appearance, he attempted to stop a robbery, but he got in the way of the police and they assumed he was working with the criminals.
Mistaken for a Villain
The police attempted to shoot Electro, but he shocked their guns out of their hands, and his lightning powers soon got out of control, and they opened up the vault. With the police unarmed, it gave the robbers the perfect opportunity to enter the vault and loot it of all of its money. Electro still tried to stop them, but the police tackled and arrested him.
After being arrested, Max was taken to a county jail were he would remain until his trial. He tried to escape many times and convince people he wasn't a villain, but his attempts were useless. Eventually, Max was taken to court where the judge refused to listen to his complaints, and he sentenced Max to Genosha Island Prison.
