A schoolboy who was almost killed when knocked out by a massive electric shock now claims the accident gave him superpowers like those of X-Men’s Magneto. Nikolai Kryaglyachenko, 12, had been walking home after school when he leaned briefly against a lamp post that was live from a faulty wire, and was blasted across the pavement. The jolt was so powerful that it reportedly sent the boy flying to the other side of the street.  Comic book fans will recall that while Magneto is the sole master of magnetism, it was The Flash who got his powers after being electrocuted.
