I did briefly consider naming him Four-Star-Michelin-Cook Man, if that's any help.

My mental image for the Cranium is the Brain... wearing a deerstalker 
cap and saying "Elementary my dear Watson'.  In particular this derives 
from the factoid that Sherlock Holmes was in the habit of taking cocaine 
to relieve his boredom if he didn't have a challenging case to solve.

Uhm...  I hadn't thought about that angle.  The static silhouette was mainly 
a cool special effect, but also serves to mask his identity in the same way 
that 9-Jack-9 was a black silhouette in a pinstripe suit and boater hat.  If 
he's electricty then the static is his physical form.  If he's flesh and can 
turn into electricty then the static is just another type of mask.
I haven't considered the Recovery Man's true identity (if any), how he got 
his powers, etc - and that would affect the answer.  By default I'd say he 
is electricity, but that may well be subject to change.
