Ha! They call me mad! They call me insane! They're right!

Don't call me Sparky!
~ Megavolt

Megavolt is a major recurring villain from Darkwing Duck. He is insane and is obsessed with all things electrical, even to the point of believing that light bulbs are living things.


Elmo Sputterspark was a very intelligent high-school student. He had made a science project on static electricity, a wool carpet treadmill, to find a way to get clean and cheap electricity. But all went wrong when a bully sabotaged his invention by taping him to the treadmill, setting it on high and leaving him onit, making it electrocute Elmo and explode after that. The accident turned him into a living battery, able to absorb and control electricity at will. Thus, he decided to take revenge on those who bullied him and never understood his ideals. However, the accident severely damaged his brain, making him forgetting what he was set up to do. Elmo then become Megavolt, and turned to a life of crime.

Megavolt usually has memory loss due to the accident, which make him forget things easily. He also became crazy, believing light bulbs are alive and setting to free them from their "slavery". He found out about Darkwing Duck's secret identity, but because of his memory loss, Darkwing feels unthreatened by him. Most of his plans are totally nonsensical, such as using a giant magnet to steal metal so that he can build an even bigger magnet.

Megavolt became friends with Quackerjack, with whom he formed a crazy duo to commit more insane crimes. The both of them later joined the Fearsome Five, under the leadership of NegaDuck.
