It's a battle of electricity manipulators with one of Academy City's Level 5 espers and one of Spider-Man's major foes:

Battle Conditions:

Battle can be won via incapacitation or death. Both characters will be more serious than usual in dishing out their powers, yet are still in character.

Battle takes place in an empty San Francisco with both foes 10 yards apart from one another.

Who do you think wins this?

Mikoto Misaka
Mikoto Misaka
Electro
Electro

EDIT: And for those that ask, this battle involves Mikoto as a Level 5 esper, not while she is undergoing the Level 6 Shift she is presently undergoing in the Railgun manga.

This is a terrible matchup, Electro is immune to lightening so how can she win?

@Saladking: Not quite so horrible. Mikoto's body emits an electrical field that makes her immune to electric shocks (regardless of voltage) and mind control. Her abilities also grant her electromagnetic abilities that grant her the power to manipulate metallic objects and create an "iron sand" like substance from the iron in the air that allows her to vibrate the tiny fibers of the "sand" like a chainsaw to use against her foes.

As state by dream, misaka can use her power to manipulate EM field, or just use railgun which is pure Kinetic energy , not electricity it self.

Misaka 9/1, Electro can only beat her by catching her off guard with his electricity immunity, or if Misaka accidentally overcharged electro much.

@Saladking: she could just fire little coins that travel at fast speeds to go through his head

Absorbs all the electricity she produces until she's out of gas then he proceeds to beat her prison style while she's down

@Saladking: Electro's maximum electric output is 10 million volts. Mikoto's max is a billion volts. Maxwell's not gonna be able to drain her.

Electro just became cheaper than the dollar store. He gets killed by a penny.

Actually a penny wouldn't work that well as a railgun since copper and zinc are not very magnetizable, that's why misaka use the coin from arcade, which have large traces of iron.

@katanalauncher: Even if a penny doesn't work Electro is still cheaper than the dollar store.

Even without electricity, Misaka still has EM radar sense and Magnetism power.

Electro aint winning this one IMO.

MIKOTO'S Powers

Mikoto's power is known as the Railgun ( Chō-Denjihō (Rērugan), lit. "Super Electromagnetic Cannon"). She chose the ability name herself, naming it after her famous finishing move. Her ability belongs to a type of power users called Electromaster ( Dengeki Tsukai (Erekutoro Masutā), lit. "Electricity User"): those who can generate and manipulate electricity.

Mikoto is the most powerful Electromaster in Academy City. Her maximum output is known to be 1 billion volts.

  • Iron Sand Storm
  • Railgun ( Chō-Denjihō (Rērugan), lit. "Super Electromagnetic Cannon"): Mikoto can fire metal objects at three times the speed of sound by forming parallel currents on both sides of her arm with her electricity. Her railgun has a muzzle velocity of 1030 m/s (2307.2 mph), and can be fired at a rate of 8 shots per minute. She has hinted she can fire multiple coins at once creating a Rail-Shotgun, however this has never been seen. She primarily uses arcade coins as her projectiles for portability, limiting her normal range to 50 meters.
  • Lightning Attack Spear (雷撃の槍 Raigeki no Yari): Mikoto has the ability to generate a "spear of lightning" originating from her forehead.
  • Powerful Electromagnetic Pulse: Mikoto has the ability to create magnetic pulses that target the organs
  • Lightning Strike: Mikoto can call down real lightning using her ability regardless of season. This attack was shown to be powerful enough to cause a city-wide blackout.
  • Electromagnetism: Mikoto can use electromagnetism to attract and repel metallic materials and use it to her advantage. Examples include creating a make-shift shield out of scrap metal, walking on walls and ceilings, as well as attracting iron particles in the ground around her.
  • Whip Sword (鞭のような剣 Muchi no yō na Ken) or Iron Sand Sword (砂鉄剣 Satetsuken): Using her magnetic powers, Mikoto can form a "whip sword" by gathering iron sand, manipulating it into a sword that she can lengthen into a whip at will. By making the sand particles of the blade vibrate, she can dramatically increase the weapon's cutting power into something resembling that of a chainsaw.
  • Cracking/Hacking: Using her electric powers she can hack any electronic device and bypass normal electronic security measures with ease. She can decode the electronic flow of information, like steal the information from a credit card's magnetic strip, as well as directly process a computer's information in binary. This skill also enables her to perform acts such as erasing herself from security footage in real time or taking control of Academy City's roving security robots. Furthermore, it is revealed in Volume 7 of New Testament that she could even use her power to take control of cars.
  • Unique Sensory Perception of Electric-type Espers: As an electromaster, Mikoto is of course able to sense electric, magnetic, and electromagnetic phenomena. She is, however, able to follow the electric and magnetic field lines using her eyes, something that normal electromasters are unable to do with their limited power. She takes this ability one step further by analyzing the reflections of the electromagnetic waves she generates, giving her no blind spots.
  • Flight: Using formulas similar to those she use for her Iron Sand sword, Mikoto can fly if she is surrounded by a large amount of atomised water vapor. She manipulated the water vapor forming it into wings using the static electricity from interactions between particles. By using her electric power to induce electrolysis on a large body of water such as the ocean, she can obtain enough hydrogen and oxygen to use as fuel.
  • Telepathic Immunity: Mikoto has been shown to be immune to the effects of telepathic manipulation due to the electromagnetic barrier created by her AIM dispersion field.
  • Radar Sense: Mikoto can sense and release electromagnetic waves around her to enable her to see the image of the room three-dimensionally without the use of her sight.
  • Control of nerves and muscles: Perhaps a reference to her powers being applied to help those with muscular dystrophy. Mikoto is shown to be able to use her powers to take control of her muscles and nerves when they have been rendered ineffective through the use of drugs. The cost of this however is that she requires to constantly use her powers on her body, making her a walking stun gun.

ELECTRO POWERS

An unusually configured magnetic field was created when Dillon was struck by lightning while holding live, high-tension wires and a wound reel of one-inch cable, granting him superhuman powers. Electro can generate massive quantities of electricity, theoretically up to approximately one million volts. He can employ this electrostatic energy as lightning arcs from his fingertips, and his maximum charge is more than enough to kill a normal human.

When his body is charged to high levels, he becomes superhumanly strong and fast. He can also glide over power lines by using the electricity contained therein for propulsion, and he has on occasion been shown to actually ride on lightning bolts. During a stint in prison, Doctor Octopus gave him the ideas of ionizing metals and sparking the petroleum in the fuel tank of a vehicle as a way to generate explosions. He can charge himself up to make himself more powerful. He can also absorb the energy of electrical equipment such as a power plant to increase his powers further.

In New Avengers, he was shown to fly and manipulate large amounts of electricity and machinery, when he freed all the prisoners at Rykers (although, due to the city-wide blackout preceding the event, he probably absorbed a great deal of energy beforehand).

An experimental procedure heightened his powers, allowing Electro to store and absorb a seemingly limitless amount of electricity. He also seemed to gain the power over magnetism to a certain degree, allowing him to manipulate magnetic fields and move objects in a manner similar to that of Magneto, and could overcome his old weakness to water by using the electromagnetic fields around him to vaporize water before it could touch him. He made Spider-Man beg by stimulating the bioelectric currents in his brain, and was able to defeat Nate Grey by manipulating said currents in Nate's brain to turn his own psionic powers against him.

Electro can override any electrically powered device and manipulate it according to his mental commands.

By using an external electrical power source to recharge his body's energy reserves, Electro could expend electricity indefinitely without diminishing his personal reserves. When he is fully charged, Electro is extremely sensitive to anything that may "short circuit" him, such as water.

Electro propels himself along magnetic lines of force in objects that have great electrical potential, such as high-tension electrical lines. He can also create electrostatic bridges to traverse upon, at the cost of a great expenditure of energy.

During the events of the storyline "The Gauntlet", Electro became a living artificial thunderbolt, allowing him to travel through electrical appliances such as going through a light bulb and exiting through any other electronic device connected to the power source. He was also able to transmit himself over Spider-Man's web.
