Buzzspin, also known as Chance Bonta, was once a weapon robotics engineer for the army.He became wealthy and began experimenting with the stabilization in highly enhanced electrical currents. One day while attempting an experiment with an unstable current, he tripped and his feet went through the electrical current.
He then went into a state of "Insanity" and was held in solitary confinement for about 3 and 1/2 months.Soon after being set free, he began to realize strange happenings. He began to research why these events have been occuring. His research showed that he has electrical currents flowing through his body and that with a bit of practice he could channel them through his body and produce electric shocks.
