Francine Frye is a New Yorker who was obsessed with super-villains as a form to escape from the real world. She was a regular accomplice for Electro
Electro went to Francine's apartment for shelter, while on the run after having his powers were tampered with by Otto Octavius. Even though he warned her of his malfunctioning powers, Francine tried to get intimate with him, claiming that she simply couldn't help it. They eventually kissed, but Francine was accidentally fried.
After The Jackal recovered genetic material from her corpse, Francine was brought back her back to life, initially as an incentive to have the recently-depowerd Electro work with him. After a procedure failed to give Electro his powers back, the suit that was meant to transfer its energy to him started to discharge into Francine's body. It was theorized by the Jackal that having used genetic material from Francine's cheek after she kissed Electro had mixed up her DNA.
Francine was pulled by the energy discharge of the suit and kissed Electro in order to grow in power. Francine ended up absorbing all of the suit's power, but accidentally fried Electro. The Prowler, who had been sent to infiltrate the New U Headquarters, revealed himself while trying to save Electro and Francine was sent after him. She accidentally killed the Prowler during the chase, requiring the Jackal to bring him back to life. Francine was given an Electro costume and took Dillon's place in the Jackal's plan.
Powers and Abilities
- Electrostatic Energy Generation: Francine possessed either similar or the same powers as the original Electro, she can generate electrostatic energy which she can release or harness for numerous effects.
- Lightning Bolt Projection: The simplest manifestation of her powers is the emission of lightning, an electric arc from her fingertips which could propagate through air or other conducting mediums.
- Pill Dependency: In order to avoid cellular degeneration, Francine has to ingest New U Pills daily.
- Water: Due to her lack of experience with her powers, she was easily defeated by Spider-Man in her first encounter when Spider-Man exposed her to water, which effectively knocked her out.
