Lightning Man is another character suggested by my 4 year-old nephew, who described him as colored blue and can make himself long like the Elongated Man.  Instead, I just made him into a being of living electricity, and to simulate the appearance of stretching, his limbs take on the form of lightning bolts when he uses his powers.

"Lightning Man" sounds like a pretty average superhero name, so I figured someone else might already have used it at some point.  Sure enough, it turns out there have been several characters that have gone by this name, such as the future adult self of Legion of Super-Heroes member Lightning Lad, Superman himself assuming a temporary identity, and the hero of this original webcomic series.
