The cinematic power of lightning.

I had the pleasure this weekend of listening to the movie "Like Mike" as I drove the kids to my nephew's tol. In this movie, lightning strikes a pair of Michael Jordan's old shoes, granting the wearer Mike's basketball powers.

This got me to a-wonderin'. What powers does lightning have, according to the movies?

So far we have:

The aforementioned shoe powers.
Enough jigawatts to send your car back in time. (Back to the Future)
Enables your computer to create living beings. (Weird Science)
Animates reassembled bodies. (Frankenstein)
Kill power-hungry sorceress queens. (Willow)
