"Look who showed up. My old friend Spider-Man."

Maxwell "Max" Dillon is the electric powered supervillain known as Electro. Dillon was transported from his universe to Earth-199999 when Peter Parker tampered with Doctor Strange's spell to make the world forget that he is Spider-Man.


Early Life

Max Dillon shared the history of his counterpart until he was transported from his universe into Earth-199999.

Spider-Man: No Way Home

Due to a spell gone awry, Dillon was pulled into an alternate reality moments before his death alongside several other villains. Manifesting on top of some power lines in the middle of his overload, Dillon was attacked by the Peter Parker of that universe and blasted him. While Flint Marko contained Dillon, Peter pulled down the power lines that Dillon was charging from, defeating him. To his own surprise, Dillon was restored to physical form with his original appearance restored as well, albeit slightly different and better, due to the energy source he absorbed that is different from the ones in his reality. He was imprisoned while Peter and Norman Osborn worked on a cure for all of the villains with Peter creating a device to drain all of the excess electricity from Dillon's body. However, Norman's Green Goblin persona reasserted control and convinced the uncured villains to turn against Peter and escape. Stating that he had liked Otto Octavius better before he was cured, Dillon blasted him from the condo with a massive blast of electricity, stole the Fabricator's Arc Reactor and escaped.

Dillon battled the three Spider-Men at the Statue of Liberty alongside Lizard and Sandman. Powered by the Arc Reactor, Dillon was stronger than ever, too strong for the three Spider-Men to defeat. Octavius intervened, at first pretending to be on Dillon's side and then using his mechanical arms to remove the Arc Reactor from Dillon's chest and replace it with the cure that the Spider-Men had developed, draining Dillon of his powers and returning him to normal.

After curing Connors, Dillon's Peter Parker unmasked himself and dropped down to talk to Dillon. Dillon reassured Peter that his powers were completely gone, despondently stating that he was back to being a nobody. Peter tried to reassure Dillon that he was never a nobody, but Dillon insisted that he was and that Peter never saw him before he became Electro. Dillon complimented Peter on his looks and his work but admitted that he'd thought that Peter was going to be black. Peter apologized, but Dillon told him not to and that there had to be a black Spider-Man out there somewhere. Complaining "goddamn eels", Dillon accepted Peter's help up, giving up on his villainous ways. When Norman attacked, Octavius grabbed Dillon and carried him to safety. He was subsequently returned to his own universe when Stephen Strange cast the spell to make everyone forget Peter Parker.
