Powers and Abilities

The Electrocutioner is an electrically-powered villain, which also gives him an healing factor. He tends to stick to the straight Lightning power, using the Self-link (Lightning) aspects less often as they are more complicated.


Jimmy Kaatz was sentenced to death in Florida for the cold-blooded murder of an elderly couple during a mugging. However, during his execution on an electric chair, there was an accident at the generator due to a lightning storm, a Jimmy was seemingly completely incinerated in the surge.

Jimmy woke up outside the prison. After some disorientation he stole clothes, a car, and fled like mad. Only later did he discover his powers. He resurfaced as the Electrocutioner and has wreaked havoc in several mid-western states.

He’s wanted by the law for several bank robberies and is known to have killed one police officer, and injured a dozen others. There is also a mob contract on him, as he was foolish enough to rob two of their casinos in Las Vegas.


Underneath the hood, Kaatz has dark, greasy eyes and beady eyes.


He’s a professional criminal, specializing in bank and casino robbery and other high-stakes thefts. He’s tough, mean, outspoken and rude – a thoroughly unsavoury person. He hates all authority figures, especially police and “those pansy super-heroes”. He loves money and enjoys a good fight.
