Michael Vey is the powerful but caring titular protagonist of the Michael Vey book series. Before the main events of the series unfold, Michael is shown to be a frequently bullied student at Meridian High School in Meridian, Idaho.

Michael's relationship with the rest of the Electroclan is incredibly solid, but he has had past issues with some of them, most notably Jack Vranes and (before his death) Wade West, two of his former bullies at Meridian High. Michael is most commonly seen with his best friend, Ostin Liss, and his girlfriend, Taylor Ridley.

Michael has the special trait of constantly growing in electrical power. This makes him the most powerful Glow in the series.

Abilities, Powers, and Special Attributes

Contact Shock - This was the first electrical ability Michael ever used, but has since become much stronger. It sends a powerful electrical shock into the opponent through physical contact. Usually only lethal if the user is angered or sad, but does have the ability to kill.

Surge - Was first used to stop Nichelle in the original novel. Pure electrical power flows through the user's hands, and sends a ray of electricity at the opponent. Gives the victim agonizing pain and suffering, which is most often compared to suffering a seizure.

Electric Sphere - Michael demonstrates in book two the ability to create spheres of electricity ranging in size of a golf ball to a watermelon. As Michael's electrical powers increased, his electric spheres became more explosive.

Magnetism - Starting somewhat early on in the second book, Michael gained the ability to utilize magnetism due to his electrical power increasing. He can both push and pull objects, as well as use his magnetic abilities to deflect bullets.

Electrical "Form" - Late in the second book, Michael was exposed to one of the Elgen power plant's electric rat grids. The immense source of electricity was absorbed by Michael's body, drastically increasing his electrical power and giving his body a very bright glow.

Electric Blast - Late in the sixth book and noted in the next, Michael was exposed to lightning and explodes, causing him to lose his flesh form and release a sudden flash of lightning throughout the ocean. Only done once, it's full scale isn't shown, but it did kill more than 5,000 Elgen guards, which was by far the most powerful attack ever done throughout the series.

Pure Electricity - Late in the final book, Michael regenerates from his flesh form, transformed into this new state of being. Shown to be almost omnipotent in ability, this form has demonstrated multiple devastating abilities. All abilities below are addressed under the tag of PE.

(PE) Lightning Bolt - A lightning bolt amplified to sizzle down life instantly, killing six Elgen guards, as well as Zara.

(PE) Lightning Ball - A "brilliant lightning ball" that floated twenty feet in the air, growing in size from a basketball sized orb until it was twenty feet across, until dissipating and revealing Michael in human form. Used as teleportation from one room to the next.

(PE) Electric Bubble - A blue and gold forcefield used to disintegrate the bullets from the automatic Elgen weapons.

(PE) Resat Blast - An ability that allowed Michael to hold up his hand and immediately destroy all Resats on the Electroclan.

(PE) Full Pulse - A pulse done by Michael that scorched the room and Hatch, turning everything but Michael into a powder or ash. The pulse was to the fullest of Michael ability, however, he was not so much as dazed afterwards.

Electricity Levels

Michael Vey: Prisoner of Cell 25

Early in the first book, Ostin measured Michael's electricity levels using a multi-meter borrowed from Ostin's uncle to test Michael's electrical power. The first attempt showed that Michael produced eight hundred and sixty four volts, more power than a "full grown electric eel," according to Ostin.

Another test is performed later, but no accurate reading is given. According to Ostin, the multimeter could read up to one thousand volts, yet read "Error" after the second test.

Michael Vey: Rise of the Elgen

Throughout the book, people like Ostin and Dr. Hatch continually note that Michael is getting more electric, which becomes a common theme in the book. During their break-in, Michael produces enough electricity to continuously shock a guard with enough electricity to blister the skin around the area he was touching him. It is also confirmed that the electric growth of Michael isn't harming him, according to Dr. Hatch. No accurate voltage meter is given in the book.

Michael Vey: Battle of the Ampere

In the third book, no real accurate meter is given. Most of the book, he is being enhanced by Tessa when using his electricity, so it's hard to really measure his growth. He is, however, shown to have become strong enough to magnetically climb up very steep and high surfaces without the assistance of the electric rats.


The Prisoner of Cell 25Edit

Michael has to free his friends and his Mom from the evil Dr. Hatch, with the help of some of the other electric children who had been rebelling against Hatch. He figured out that he was special and that the Elgen were hunting him as well asTaylor Ridley.

Rise of the ElgenEdit

Michael Vey was almost fed to the electric rats inside of the bowl, in a daring rescue mission where Michael is separated from the electroclan and his mom. He manages to, with the help of the Electroclan, destroy the Starxource plant and leave Peru mostly powerless. He escapes into the jungle and is separated again.

Battle of the AmpereEdit

Michael is saved from the Elgen by the Amacarra and meets Tessa, another glow. After saving them from the Peruvian army, Michael and his friends sink the Ampere.

Hunt for Jade DragonEdit

Michael and the Electroclan were on a quest to save a girl named Jade Dragon, who knew all the information about MEI and how the electric children where made.

Storm of LightningEdit

Part TwoEdit

SparkingEdit
On a private jet from Taiwan to Arizona, Michael's emotions are causing him to inadvertently pulse, and accidentally shocks Taylor. He explains that Jade Dragon is safe and that the Timepiece Ranch had been attacked.
NightmaresEdit
Still on the private jet, Michael tells Taylor he was wrong about retiring, stating they would never be able to stop fighting the Elgen. Taylor optimistically tries to comfort Michael but reminding him they do not actually know if anyone survived the Timepiece Ranch attack, but Michael thinks the Voice is reliable and correct. Ostin tells Michael he needs to speak with the pilot and they both walk to the cockpit. Scott, the captain, quickly tells Michael to step back as the electricity is interfering with the instruments.
Two NacosEdit
After exiting the private jet, Michael breaks up an argument between Tess and Ostin and McKenna. While waiting for Scott and Boyd to secure the plane, Michael throws a lightning ball at a grasshopper, missing and catches the grass on fire. Once Scott returns, Michael argues with him about the schedule, but Scott says it's too late to visit the ranch.
