Who is the prophetic Info Age electrical atershock shadow demon?

When we listen to bees buzz, we think of that razor-like sound of electricty ('buzz, buzz, buzz') and we think perhaps of the eloquence demands of communicated language (i.e., clearly pronouncing consonant intentions, etc.). This is where the notion of "crisp" or "electrifying language" comes from, and why the electrical guitar musician Jimi Hendrix employed complex music chord distortion sounds to create electricity-like buzzing rhythmic musical sounds.

Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Liar, Liar" (1997) echo this auditory sentiment interest in communication fluidity.

Perhaps language is like 'spiritual electricity,' and a hypothetical villain avatar who uses language to express wrath (i.e., with slander or cuss or slang words) is perhaps the prophetic 'human demon poet.'

There are many avatars in comic book stories about superhumans that could linguistically match this communication culture description: Venom, Blurr, Vertigo, Joker, etc.

If language can be used to literally 'shock' society, is there a superhuman avatar out there who can use the electricity-like qualities of language to actually become a 'lightning-rod man' or an 'electro demon?'

Is Electro, the electricity-tampering villain from Spider-Man superhuman comics this prophetic electricity villain? Is Video Man, a cyberhacking terrorist mutant the candidate? Is Ruckus, the mutant supervillain who uses sonic scream sounds to vent his electrifying malice the appropriate candidate?

Such avatars have been metaphorically compared to 'humanoid computer viruses.'

Whoever the actual avatar candidate is, the revelation will illuminate why and how modern communication is technologically guided by and structurally challenged by electronics intelligibility. Then, the creative Planet Hollywood restaurant website will be appreciated as an iconic society media communication symbol.

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
