One of the main reasons I have started to wonder about this recently, is I can't find any instances of this happening, although I imagine that there are several characters who could use electrocution as a means of assault. Can anyone help?

  • It has to be pointed out that in the 1958 B-movie The Blob, which undoubtedly inspired this character, a live wire falling on the monster didn't faze it at all -- it took something completely different to stop it. – Spencer Jan 6 at 15:30
  • Do you mean Fred "The Blob" Dukes, enemy of the X-Men or the movie monster? (I'm assuming by the tags, you mean the Marvel character, but just making sure) – Mgmills1968 Jan 6 at 19:27
  • @Mgmills1968-Fred "The Blob" Dukes, not the movie monster, actually forgot about that film – Gothamite24 Jan 7 at 6:11
  • What version of Fred Dukes ? He has been in movies, cartoons and of course comics. – Bjorn Eriksson Jan 18 at 20:51
  • @BjornEriksson-Any version will work, although I don't think you'll get much luck from the movies side, since he's only been in X-Men: Origins: Wolverine, fighting Logan and had a brief cameo early in X-Men: Apocalypse where he gets knocked out by Angel (which, sorry, that ain't happening, Blob beats Warren every time) – Gothamite24 Jan 19 at 2:20

Yes, in Wolverine and the X-Men, Storm shocks him a couple of times and he falls:

This is episode #8 "Time Bomb" and it happens towards the end of the episode, when they’re fighting on the ice.
