Electro was an enemy of the Batman Family from the planet Colu.

He was a robotic supervillain who's right-hand man was a man known only as the Commander.



Electro was either a cyborg or a robot, suggesting that he was once a biological member of his own race, the Coluans. It seems apparent that he was given cybernetic enhancements due to him likely having a 12th level intellect, as it was common during the Pre-War era for the Computer Tyrants to use cybernetics to "enhance" members of the race that they deemed "special," especially so they can serve the Computer Tyrants far greater than any other citizen could.

When the nuclear wars began, most Coluans as well as the robots that served as their dictators over them were dead, victims of powerful nuclear blasts. It's likely Electro had no reason left to stay on Colu. Besides, he desired to rule planets of his own, rather than be ruled by the Computer Tyrants, who were mostly dead at that point anyway. He left Colu, taking a Commander with him, and they began searching the Milky Way Galaxy for worlds to rule. They eventually found there way to a planet called Earth.

It didn't take long for them to realize though, that certain superheroes on the planet would have to be dealt with before such a conquest could be possible; namely the Batman Family.

Despite their well-intentioned plans to take over the world, starting with Gotham City, they were not successful in defeating the Batman Family. Batman, Robin, Batgirl, Bat-Mite and even the Batcomputer outwitted them at their own criminal scheme![2]
