Max Dillon is a troubled young man. He was recently tormented by his classmates by tying him up with his eyes blindfolded. After a failed initiation to a fraternity, his mind finally snaps. A lighting soon hits the billboard that he hit with a brick, causing him the electrifying dynamo named, Electro. Electro will have his revenge after his experiences, but not if Spider-Man intervenes.
Note: The X-Men was referenced by Peter when he was thinking whether they attend parties or not. It was never clear if the series took place in the movie franchise or referring to it only.
