"Invisible Energy, broadcast on more frequencies than you could possibly imagine. It's all around, bombarding you every moment of your life. Like climbing down a spiderweb woven from electric thread."
― Leslie Willis/Livewire (DC Comics)

Power to perceive electrical stimuli. Sub-power of Electricity Manipulation, Electromagnetic Vision and Enhanced Senses.

Also Called

  • Electric Field Detection
  • Electrolocation
  • Electrosensory System
  • Electrical Detection


User can use electroreception to locate objects around them. This is important in places where the user cannot depend on vision: for example in caves, in murky water and at night. Predators who have this sense use electric fields to detect buried prey.

This sense can be passive or active:

  • Passive: In passive electrolocation, the user senses the weak bioelectric fields generated by living beings and uses it to locate them. These electric fields are generated by everything living due to the activity of their nerves and muscles.
  • Active: In active electrolocation, the user senses their surrounding environment by generating electric fields and detecting distortions in these fields using electroreceptor organs. This allows them to detect non-living objects as well as living beings.
