Based on these, they really were dead set on ripping of Doctor Manhattan. Such an awful movie.

@TheJustinHammer @Odin - Not to mention The New Animated Series Electro.



Their backstories are way too similar for this to be a coincidence.

@TheJustinHammer - Yeah, they went to this. They should have made him full Blue Ultimate Electro and not with that black costume (I know the first costume in earth 1610 was a black costume, but was ugly af hahahaha). But what bothered me most was the fish tank storyline.

@TheJustinHammer - Okay, fair enough I guess.

@Mrcool210 - The animated series did the backstory way better. You actually felt sympathy for this kid who just couldn't catch a break. The movie version felt more like rip-off from Jim Carrey's Edward Nygma.

I still like the idea of what they tried to do with Electro in this movie. A man who is shunned by society and then when he defends himself even the one man he thought was on his side (spider-Man) turned on him and took the spotlight away, which he had wanted for so long due to being a nobody.


Keep in mind, I said I liked that idea, it still could have been executed a LOT better.

@Mrcool210 - Oh for sure. I still think Eletcro is a really cool villain visually, and Jamie Foxx did well in the role. But the writing behind him was... Yeah, not good.

But for instance, him putting his face on a freakin skyscraper. Like bruh...

@Mrcool210 - The execution was horrible, but the idea was dull -- social outcast who's feelings get hurt, obtains powers, goes bonkers. Meh, that's not evil.

Stick to the Lee-Ditko source material -- Maxwell Dillon was a bad guy at heart. That's all we need, as an audience, to dislike the guy and root for Spidey to take him down. See ASM # 9 origin ...

("Max, I NEED you! Harris in in trouble on a high tension pole! You've got to help him down!

"Forget it! I don't do anything for nothing! How much bonus will you give me?"

"But the man's life is in danger! And you're our best pole man! Okay -- you win! We'll pay you a hundred bucks."

"That's more like it! Now down't get your jaws in an uproar! I'll bring 'im down.")

@GeneralZod - The further the characters move away from the Lee/Ditko ones, the worse they get.

Worst Spider-man movie villain, by far. Second worst, the completely forgettable Lizard. Or maybe the lame crusty-faced Harry Goblin. Those movies were such disappointments.

@Chewtoy - The Webb-era villains were all terrible. Electro was the worst, but Herpes-faced Harry was a close runner-up.

i'm starting to feel like Foxx is hit or miss depending on the script he's given , because he was amazing in just mercy or baby driver but he'll go on these streaks like this where you're wondering how he got the role :/

@knocturnalzen10 - money talks. He’s damn near perfect in Ray and DJango

GTFO with this crap.

My problem with the character has less to do with his visual design and more to do with his mannerisms and personality. He’s basically Jim Carrey’s Riddler with Steve Urkel’s fashion sense (pocket protector ✓, comb over ✓, high waisted pants ✓, gapped teeth ✓). He’s a cartoony stereotype of a super-nerd. The characterization is so silly, that it’s impossible to empathize with the character when he turns bad, especially when his entire motivation for turning bad is… Spider-man forgot his name on his birthday.

I only hope that, if we ever get another Electro on film, they go for the thuggish, henchman version from the Ultimate comics, and they cast Aaron Paul in the role.
