  • Power Instability: If Deathbolt takes in to much energy it can overload him and weaken him.


Deathbolt is a very dark, emotionless and sadistic type of criminal. He takes delight in the torment of his victims like The Atom and Felicity Smoak for example. Even with all the darkness he shows he's also very level headed and calm when a potential fight was about to break out with the other Metahumans he was being held with during transport. He's also very impatient and rude with both Ray Palmer and Cisco Ramon began to annoy him when the the two of them asked him too many questions.
