Electro

This is just a random query... we didn't mention it, but Jamie Foxx officially confirmed that he will be Electro in the needless Amazing Spiderman sequel (we announced the initial news that he was in talks to play the part).

Over the weekend, I went looking for images of Electro, trying to visualize Jamie Foxx as the character, and based on what I found, I had to ask this question of our readers who are comic book afficionados, or who specifically are intimately familiar with this Electro character.

My question is - regarding his costume, is this what we can expect Jamie Foxx will be wearing in the filmed version, or are there other Electro costumes, or other versions of Electro? I searched online for images of Electro, and this was really the dominant look for the character that Google returned.

I ask because, I don't know about you all, but this looks kind of, shall we say, silly!

Yes, the superhero tights are standard in the superhero universe, but that yellow 5-point mask, and what look like electric bolt suspenders, just aren't working for me, mayne. And those yellow gloves with the electric bolt extended around the forearm area... not working either.

And I'm hoping his on-screen look will be adjusted somewhat, so that we're actually scared of the guy (after all, he's a villain), instead of laughing at him. Or is Electro more of a comical villain in the comic books, along the lines of The Joker for example, which might help explain the outfit?

Help me out here guys...
