Discharge is an Electropath, which is different from Captain Static's powers, Electrostatic Manipulation. Discharge acts like a living battery, with a chemical makeup that actually generates electricity. He can use this electricity to achieve many effects similar to those that Static can achieve, but he cannot use his electrical charge to cling to walls and he cannot use it to stick objects together. Discharge can absorb huge quantities of electricity though, a feat that Captain Static cannot match. Discharge is a bit of a follower, and he lusts after his partner, Ravenette. Discharge is married to Stuka, and has three kids.
