Search for 'Aftershock (Marvel)' on Amazon
Aftershock has the ability to manipulate electricity for a variety of effects. She can fire miniature lightning bolts at her opponents, surround herself in a protective shield of energy, or electrocute a person with a touch of her hands. She can absorb electricity from various sources to enhance her powers. She can fly via magnetic levitation, by surrounding herself in an electromagnetic field of equal polarity to the Earth's.
Max Dillon fell in love with a young woman named Marilyn, who never married Max because of his criminal history as Electro, but did have a child with him. Their daughter Allison inherits her father's electrical abilities, and due to slight differences in the polarities of Max and Allison's electrical fields, the slightest physical contact with each other burns them.
Max returns to his criminal ways as Electro and is sent to prison, and Marilyn dies of cancer. Young Allison is placed in foster care, where she is bounced from one home to another. In her teens, Allison designs a costume very similar to her father's Electro costume. Furthermore, she decides to use her powers to be a criminal like her father. She tries to rob a jewelry store at a mall, but is stopped by Spider-Girl. Later, using the codename "Aftershock", Allison attempts to rob some armored cars, but again she was stopped by Spider-Girl.
Electro found out about his daughter's criminal ways, and contacts Spider-Girl's father, Spider-Man, so that the three could confront Aftershock. Electro convinces his daughter to return with him, and that they would find a way to overcome their inability to touch. She agrees and leaves with him. She has not returned to her criminal ways since.
