    I thought the lightning was just a brush which you can download at DeviantART...
    Else it's very plain and you could add more lightning...

    If I'm wrong, sorry.

    Looks better now, but the lightning seems to be lost in the general randomness of the background. Try to put emphasis on the lightning's presence with either making it bigger or highlighting it with a blue-ish color.

    It would be better with clouds, because lightning is made by clouds when they clash together to create a electrical fork of lightning which almost instanly hits the ground.

    It looks more like a ThunderBolt, but i think LightningBolt fits too...
    My Rating (improved): 10/10 - ABSOLUTELY GODLIKE! ( ~5/5)
    +2p: The element in the name is correct.
    +2p: It is well made, all those clouds, the lightning...everything!
    +2p: It has all 4 different icon versions + disbtn versions.
    +2p: You really did put some effort to it!
    +1p: The name is correct.
    +1p: It makes even my Sig bow down to you!

    Afterwords: I think it should have atleast abit blue somewhere, as i usually see lightning as blue-white-yellow way...
    EDIT: oh nvm, just readed the description fully :)
