Fictional character biography

Jim Andrews is a young research scientist who is caught between two giant electrodes while conducting an experiment. He finds that the accident has given him the power to control electricity, which he can use to create force fields, shoot bolts of electricity from his hands, or fly through the air. If he uses his powers for too long, he can recharge by holding onto an electrical source. Deciding to call himself Electro, Jim puts on a helmet and cape to fight crime. He later changes his name to Dynamo, which he uses for the rest of his career.

Dynamo was a regular feature in Fox's Science Comics and Weird Comics, occasionally as the lead feature. His last appearance was in Weird Comics #19 (November 1941).
