Overview

  A mystery man in the early 1940s with electro-magnetic powers, Magno died in the bombing of Pearl Harbor during the Freedom Fighters' first mission.

History

  While working as a lineman for an electric company, Tom Dalton was accidentally shocked and killed by "10,000 DC volts" but brought back to life and re-powered by and equal number of "AC volts". Dalton used his new-found magno-electric abilities to fight crime.

  After a short period of time as a crime-fighter, Magno was asked by Uncle Sam to join him and several other heroes in defending America. The group, dubbed the Freedom Fighters tried unsuccessfully to stop the invasion by the Japanese Navy of Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Magno, along with several other heroes, was killed during this battle.

Powers and Weapons

  After acquiring these abilities, Magno used his hands like two very powerful magnets. He could draw bullets towards him, and by increasing the voltage, melt them. He could load his punches to give a powerful electrical shock. After a great deal of usage, however, his internal supply of electricity would run low. He could, however, simply recharge himself by sticking his finger in a convenient light socket or holding exposed wires.

  The source of his abilities could be related to an electro-generator similar to the one that altered Amazing-Man's powers to ones similar to those of Magno's, but this is only speculation.
