Electrogenic Alphas are able to produce and discharge large voltages, often at the cost of shorting out electronics for a short time afterwards as the static dissipates.
The human body is an electrical system. The nervous system controls an electrochemical current, while the body processes food to generate electricity, using liquids as a conductive medium. We have often been compared to a battery, or an electrical engine. There are even cases where a human being can absorb large amounts of current and survive.
Electrogenic alphas are able to tap into this system, using it to influence other systems and self-generate freeform electricity. On a physiological level, this means the alpha's metabolism is tuned to the production of electricity, and his body is toughened against electrical shock. On a neural level, the alpha's sensory organs are keyed to electricity, gauging its intensity and direction; other unknown neural functions allow them to change intensity and direction.
Sub sub-power(s) of being an Electrogenic include:
- Heightened Strength: Brian Kessler displayed the ability to temporarily augment his strength to a level where he could throw an amped-up hyperadrenal into a wall and temporarily stun him. Brian may be able to use electricity to "convulse" his muscles. It is unlikely he can match the strength of a hyperadrenal in the long-term, but combined with natural generation of electricity, the ability makes him a formidable hand-to-hand fighter.
