Johnny's gone nova again, employing his high-intensity light/heat burst. In this case, he's holding onto a conducting rod-and-cable, which will channel his expended energy directly to Doctor Doom, shorting out his personal force-field.

Of course, there's a catch - Johnny has to drop the rod as soon as he bursts, or there'll be a dangerous feedback that will knock him from the sky. How this rod is supposed to channel anything when it's falling to the ground is a bit beyond me, but Reed's the one who has engineered it, and who am I to question his wisdom?
