Our superpower for the week is electrokinesis!
Subject is able to use his body as a resistor to electrical current, allowing him to absorb or redirect electrical energy without electrocuting himself, even if he got wet while using his abilities. Subject has thousands of disc-shaped cells stacked within his nervous system that can generate electricity. These cells are known as electrocytes and pump out positively charged ions like potassium and sodium on the outside and maintain a negative charge on the inside. However, when subject sends a signal from his brain to the electrocytes it then prompts the ion gates to open up which causes the positively charged ions to actively transport through the membrane inside the electrocyte which gives it a positive charge on the inside and a negative charge on the outside. So what happens is the eletrocytes has a negative charge on one side of it and a positive charge on the other. Because the cells are stacked, every electrocyte is touching another electrocyte with an opposite charge. The activation of one electrocyte causes the surrounding electrocytes to activate as well. This chain reaction happens simultaneously which results in an electrical current. Subject also sends electrical impulses from his brain to his cells to release the stored energy within them, which are transferred back into electrical energy and used for whatever the subject wants. Subject absorbs external sources of electricity into his body which is then transferred into a different kind of energy that the body can handle. This transferred energy is made dormant as well to prevent overwhelming the body and would remain that way until future use. Subject can not only activate but can also deactivate the electricity force coming off of his body, like a light dimmer on a light switch. The subject does this by limiting or “turning down” the amount of electricity (energy) that is being expelled from his body by will. Subject can also control the velocity of his electric current and can even control the stability of his stored energy without overheating. The subject deactivates electric current by sending multiple signals from his brain to throughout his body. Subject has electroreceptors in his skin which enables him to sense objects and any electricity near him. Subject can use the concussive force of electricity to propel himself off the ground or throw someone across a room. Subject can control electricity by using his arms, legs, and fingers as lightning rods to direct and manipulate it into any direction, shape, way, or form he desires. Subject uses the dynamic and static electricity that he has earlier absorbed and stored to charge a person up with them and use that power to move them any way subject pleases without harming them. Subject is able to power and control any piece of machinery or technology. Subject’s body give off an average of 10,000 volts from his body without amperage which can span to a radius of only a few feet.
There is a bundle of highly conducive nerves around each optic nerve that are configured in a way to cause the electrical current to be redirected, allowing it to bypass the eyes. This way, subject won’t go blind every time he uses his ability.
