- 3 History
- 4 Trivia
Contact Shock - This was the first electrical ability Michael ever used, but has since become much stronger. It sends a powerful electrical shock into the opponent through physical contact. Usually only lethal if the user is angered or sad, but does have the ability to kill.
Surge - Was first used to stop Nichelle in the original novel. Pure electrical power flows through the user's hands, and sends a ray of electricity at the opponent. Gives the victim agonizing pain and suffering, which is most often compared to suffering a seizure.
Electric Sphere - Michael demonstrates in book two the ability to create spheres of electricity ranging in size of a golf ball to a watermelon. As Michael's electrical powers increased, his electric spheres became more explosive.
Magnetism - Starting somewhat early on in the second book, Michael gained the ability to utilize magnetism due to his electrical power increasing. He can both push and pull metal objects, as well as use his magnetic abilities to deflect bullets.
Electrical "Form" - Late in the second book, Michael was exposed to one of the Elgen power plant's electric rat grids. The immense source of electricity was absorbed by Michael's body, drastically increasing his electrical power and giving his body a very bright glow.
Electric Blast - Late in the sixth book and noted in the next, Michael was exposed to lightning and explodes, causing him to lose his flesh form and release a sudden flash of lightning throughout the ocean. Only done once, it's full scale isn't shown, but it did kill more than 5,000 Elgen guards, which was by far the most powerful attack ever done throughout the series.
Pure Electricity - Late in the final book, Michael regenerates from his flesh form, transformed into this new state of being. Shown to be almost omnipotent among the other electric children, this form has demonstrated multiple devastating abilities. All abilities below are addressed under the tag of PE.
(PE) Lightning Bolt - A lightning bolt amplified to sizzle down life instantly, killing six Elgen guards.
(PE) Lightning Ball - A "brilliant lightning ball" that floated twenty feet in the air, growing in size from a basketball sized orb until it was twenty feet across, until dissipating and revealing Michael in human form. Used as teleportation from one room to the next.
(PE) Electric Bubble - A blue and gold forcefield used to disintegrate the bullets from the automatic Elgen weapons.
(PE) Resat Blast - An ability that allowed Michael to hold up his hand and immediately destroy all Resats on the Electroclan.
(PE) Full Pulse - A pulse done by Michael that scorched the room and Hatch, turning everything but Michael into a powder or ash. The pulse was to the fullest of Michael ability, however, he was not so much as dazed afterwards.
From the first book to the last, it has shown that Michael's power/voltage increases until he could appear and disappear. In Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25, Ostin Liss used a volts meter to measure how much power Michael could generate. throughout the series his power start to evolve and grow.
Early in the first book, Ostin measured Michael's electricity levels using a multi-meter borrowed from Ostin's uncle to test Michael's electrical power. The first attempt showed that Michael produced eight hundred and sixty four volts, more power than a "full grown electric eel," according to Ostin.
Another test is performed later, but no accurate reading is given. According to Ostin, the multimeter could read up to one thousand volts, yet read "Error" after the second test.
Throughout the book, people like Ostin and Dr. Hatch continually note that Michael is getting more electric, which becomes a common theme in the book. During their break-in, Michael produces enough electricity to continuously shock a guard with enough electricity to blister the skin around the area he was touching him. It is also confirmed that the electric growth of Michael isn't harming him, according to Dr. Hatch. No accurate voltage meter is given in the book.
In the third book, no real accurate meter is given. Most of the book, he is being enhanced by Tessa when using his electricity, so it's hard to really measure his growth. He is, however, shown to have become strong enough to magnetically climb up very steep and high surfaces without the assistance of the electric rats.

Michael powers up enough when attacked and gains Lichtenburg scars from his blast.
No meter was given but while on the island of Hades Michael Vey saved his team by climbing to the highest tower and used the lightning to destroy the surface of the island and blind others on Hatch's team. Since he had so much power/energy he disappear causing Taylor Ridley to believe Michael is died.
for the majority of the book Michael didn't appear until the end when he finished off Hatch and his crew.
