Lightning Man

Going with the lightning theme, here’s Doctor MegaVolt:

In 1996 members of Survival Research Laboratory built a cage to protect a person from Tesla coil currents, and I got inside the cage as a stunt at a party at Christian Ristow’s warehouse space. The result was as expected: I felt no sensation of electricity while in the cage. All the current flows on the outside of a conductor, isolating the interior from potentially dangerous electric fields. Eight months later I decided to shrink the cage down around my body and create a metal suit that would allow mobility.

This guy is nuts.
