HISTORY: Dillon was a criminal who underwent illegal genetic experiments carried out Dr. John Skrtic on behalf of industrialist Justin Hammer, who was compeing with Osborn Industries to win a lucrative government contract to create a super-soldier serum. Developing electrical power and calling himself Electro, Dillon was sold into the service of the Kingpin of Crime, Wilson Fisk, in return for construction contracts for another of Hammer's projects. As Fisk's willing enforcer, Electro defeated Spider-Man after the hero broke into Fisk Tower. Electro later watched Kingpin murder Frederick Foswell, the underboss known as Mr. Big, for having supplied Spider-Man with information. When Spider-Man returned to the Tower a few days later to steal surveillence footage of Foswell's murder, Electro and the Enforcers opposed him, but Spider-Man tricked Electro into stunning the Enfocer Ox, tookdown the other two Enforcers, and caused Electro to short out violently by dousing him with water from a broken pipe.

When a hospitalized Elctro awoke weeks later, the Kingpin had fled the country and F.B.I. agents were waiting to question Dillon. Electro killed everyone in the room and fled, but he was swiftly recaptured by Captain America, Iron Man and the Black Widow. He was imprisoned in a secure S.H.I.E.L.D facility alongside other genetically modified criminals (Doctor Octopus, Kraven, Norman Osborn and Sandman), his powers blocked by a high-tech control collar, to be studied and interrogated by Hank Pym (Giant Man). Month later, Dr. Octopus engineered a breakout and the group slaughtered their way to freedom, killing 35 S.H.I.E.L.D. agents on their way out. They then assaulted S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Triskelion main base in search of Spider-Man, who had been moved there for his own protection. Octopus breached computer security to shut down the base's defenses, Electro overloaded the generators, and the criminals managed to capture Spider-Man and escape.

Spider-Man was coerced into joining thier attack on the White House itself. Conventional forces fell before them in seconds, but their progress was halted on the front lawn outside the Oval office by the arrival of the Ultimates. Electro attacked Thor, and their battle raged into the air; but Electro's powers proved no match for the alleged God of Lightning, and along with his teammates, electro was soon returned to custody.
