History

Live Wire was a minion of Psycho-Man along with Ivan Karlovich and Shellsock; Psycho-Man kept them under control using his Control-Box. Psycho-Man intended them to guard his secret base in the Caribbean Sea, but the trio was defeated by the invading Inhumans and Black Panther: Although Live Wire ensnared Medusa, he could not prevent hyper-accurate Karnak from dodging his wire lasso and knock Live Wire down.[1]

Live Wire then joined the Circus of Crime[2]. He has shown a preference to impress opponents with his skills before really attacking them.

Live Wire was apparently eaten by accident by Princess Python's pet snake while battling John Steele.
