Alias: The Living Dynamo, formerly Rozzz; Brian David Banner (Movie)
Powers: Generate electricity (usually in the form of lightning bolts), manipulate nearby electrical fields, fly, nearly limitless stamina and durability, and the ability to lift in excess of 100 tons or more based on its level of energy it has absorbed.
Zzzax also absorbs electricity from the human brain to survive; this usually kills its victims, and gives Zzzax temporary personality traits similar to those of the person it has absorbed.
This Incarnation: Classic
First Appearance: Incredible Hulk #166
Zzzax was the product of an accident that occurred at a Consolidated Edison nuclear power plant when a group of heavily armed terrorists attempted to shut down the power for New York City. The explosion that their stray gunfire caused started a chain reaction in the atomic reactor, creating a psionically charged electromagnetic field of humanoid form. As the electromagnetic form grew, it incinerated those people who stood in its way, absorbing the electro-psionic fields generated by their brains, and thus acquired a human intelligence. As it began to think and become aware of its surroundings, it developed rudimentary speech and named itself Zzzax in imitation of the electrostatic "crackle" it made when it moved. As it killed more human beings, it grew more intelligent; consequently it began a campaign of murder and destruction in order to increase its intelligence further.
