Electro

This version of Electro is wildly different from his comic-book roots, as he was given a spiffy-looking black bodysuit with a lot of extra details sculpted on, although I would be hard pressed to tell if these sculpted bits are actually screen accurate or not.

Captain America (Movie Series)
