The Pip is nuts about superheroes, so when he and his speech teacher made a book, naturally, it introduced a new super hero: Lightning Bolt. It's only a couple of sheets of paper folded in half and stapled, and the text and illustrations were done by his teacher, but the contents are 100% our Little Dude, so I'll reproduce it here.

(one of Lightning Bolt's villains)
Half Human, Half Rhino
Sometimes he gets mad and defeats himself. Lots of times he runs into buildings and knocks them down on himself.
So, there you have it: The Pip's superhero creation. Watch your back, Stan Lee.
If Charge is a play on Mr. Boom's electrical powers, that's pretty clever. If not, it's still a pretty cool villain.
I'm pretty sure that "Charge" in this case wasn't an intentional Coulomb reference. I think it's a reference to the villain's rhino attack, and only accidentally makes physics sense.
Len Boom as a secret ID name really sounds like something out of a silver age comic, too.
