Electrostatic Energy Generation: Eel's suit possesses the ability to bodily generate electrostatic energy which he can release or harness for a number of effects. It's unknown how much electricity he can generate per minute. Eel can control the amount of electricity he discharges, anywhere from a single volt to his full 10,000,000 volt charge at once.
Lighting Bolt Projection: The Eel can emit a lightning-like electric arc from his fingertips, which can propagate through air or other conducting mediums. This discharge, whose total voltage can be regulated within certain limits, travels at the speed of lightning, about 150,000 feet per second. The course of the electrostatic bolt, like lightning, does not always follow a straight line since it may be influenced by conducting substances like metal or other electrical fields.
Electrification: The Eel may electrify the outer surface of his costume with enough current to shock anyone who touches him into unconsciousness. This is direct current, so anyone grabbing him will be unable to release their grip.
Light Aura: The Eel may generate a glowing electrical aura around his costume capable of illuminating his immediate area.
Radar Sense: The Eel may generate an electrical field around his costume that functions like a radar sense, allowing him to automatically detect the presence of anyone within his immediate area.
Insulation: The Eel's costume is heavily insulated in order to protect him from the electricity it generates.
Greasy Coating: The Eel's costume exudes a grease-like substance which makes it extremely difficult for opponents to get and maintain a firm grip on him.
Lavell took over the super-powered costume and identity of the Eel from the original Eel, Leopold Stryke, who had died by then. As the new Eel, Lavell first ran afoul of Power Man and Iron Fist when he and Man-Mountain Marko unsuccessfully attempted to free the Maggia boss known as Hammerhead from police captivity while being transported to a new prison.
