Dr. Austin Richards performs electrifying shows in which hes struck by lighting thats shot out from a nine- foot Tesla Coil as his alter ego, Dr. MegaVolt. He also shoots electricity from a gun attached to his arm.
Richards dresses in a full metal suit to ensure the thousands of volts of electricity hes hit with dont kill him, and describes the sensation as flowing over him like a river without feeling the slightest vibration.
Though getting electrocuted is admittedly scary for the doc and the audience, he rarely worries about getting shocked to death.
However, his snazzy outfit and shocking skills dont necessarily make Richards invincible.
He says, People have told me Im like a superhero, but I dont see it myself. Im just me. Superheroes have a suit and a power, I just have a suit.
