Electricity

Why doesn't some homemade superhero/supervillian try to harness the power of static electricity?

Once, when I was probably four or so, I ran down a carpeted hallway in socked feet to give my sister a kiss. The moment my lips touched hers - BLAM! Her lip exploded. Exploded! My parents later told me that they heard the "pop" all the way downstairs (and they certainly heard the horrified wailing that followed too).

That example aside, haven't you all heard the stories of how static electricity can cause fires at gas stations?

For such a little spark, it can sure cause a lot of damage.
