Character

Background

Megav

Young Megavolt being Bullied

When bully Ham String and Preena Lott sabotaged his science fair project on static electricity, young Elmo Sputterspark gained the ability to absorb and project electrical currents, and to grant nearby electrically powered objects a form of sentience. He wanted to call himself "Megawatt", but the band playing at the dance had already adopted that name. Clash Reunion Sputterspark's transformation gave him virtually unlimited power. However, it also fried several portions of his brain, leaving Megavolt a peculiar sort; he believes that light bulbs, toasters and anything else powered by electricity have been "enslaved" by Mankind and need rescuing, which explains why he is usually seen leaving the crime scene with bags full of flashlights, toasters and ovens instead of money. Inside Binkie's Brain He's also become romantically interested in electrical devices, having declared his love to a lightbulb Comic Book Capers, gone on date with a billboard (with a picture of a woman on it), Inversionary Tactics and made heart-eyes at the empty Gizmosuit.

Testing his powers.

Megavolt was a member of the Fearsome Five Just Us Justice Ducks (Part 1) and occasionally teamed up with Quackerjack as a duo. Stressed to Kill He twice partnered up with Darkwing Duck on a case out of self-interest. Negaduck The Frequency Fiends In "Life, the Negaverse and Everything", his Negaverse counterpart appears to be the leader of the Friendly Four. In one episode "Up, Up and Awry", Darkwing Duck defeats Megavolt by turning his own powers against him - he literally charges and changes Megavolt into a super magnet. This is a recurring problem to Megavolt; he may be one of the strongest mutants in St. Canard, he also is subject to his own powers. It's happened several times that others have used his powers without his consent and sometimes hurting him in the process. A Revolution in Home Appliances Watts the Problem! The Duck Knight Returns, Part 3 Despite being rather dimwitted and absentminded at times, Megavolt is one of Darkwing Duck's more dangerous adversaries in terms of the sheer amount of power he possesses - Darkwing himself uses Megavolt as an example of what a supervillain is. Planet of the Capes Darkwing himself even considered him his arch-enemy, The Frequency Fiends although he has also referred to Quackerjack and Ammonia Pine as his nemeses. Darkwing also mentions having sent him to the electric chair twice, Duck Blind implying both that Megavolt has previously committed at least two murders, and was electrocuted but survived due to the nature of his powers.

Personality

The accident granted him near limitless power, but the price was equal to the merchandise. Every single brain-cell was super charged, costing him his short-term memory and common sense. This is evident by his campaign to liberate the enslaved lightbulbs. In the beginning Megavolt seems to be a sarcastic and clever enemy, but he loses many of these qualities after Negaduck becomes his new leader.
