The original character was an electrically charged Super called "She-Lectrix" whose design resembled Evelyn Deavor's final design. The design of He-Lectrix comes from an early storyboard in which Winston Deavor was a corrupt businessman, working together with his inventor brother named Nelson Deavor who created the Screenslaver character. However, after Winston became a good guy the writers decided they could do more with a female villain, so that she could work in the background and establish a friendship with Elastigirl. The two designs were exchanged and Evelyn became the movie's villain, while He-Lectrix closely resembles Winston.
Outside hero work, he is an aspiring songwriter and guitarist in a prog-rock cover band.
He-Lectrix, along with Krushauer, Screech, Brick, and Reflux, is first seen in a meeting mingling with other superheroes at Winston's office where he introduces himself to Elastigirl after to take part of Winston's growing campaign of making Supers legal again, where she Elastigirl introduces herself to him in which He-Lectrix explains to him about the powers he uses. Later when Winston walks to Evelyn and Helen, he touches He-Lectrix and suddenly becomes zapped when touching him. Later after Elastigirl is captured and brainwashed by Evelyn Deavor, He-Lectrix and the other Supers break into the Parr family's new home under Evelyn's control. He and the other Supers are later seen wearing Hypno-goggles and fighting against Dash, Violet, and Jack-Jack on Winston's ship in which they confront them to remove their Hypno-goggles with help from Elastigirl, Mr. Incredible, and Frozone; He-Lectrix is suddenly saved when Violet traps him in her force field (electrocuting himself) while Jack-Jack (in his monster form) jumps on him and breaks his Hypno-goggles in half, saving him from Evelyn's control. Later after Evelyn gets arrested, He-Lectrix and the other superheroes are last seen reinstating the Supers Relocation Program where all the superheroes regain their legal statuses.
