Born in the Plutonium Age of Comics, “Radioactive Man” has delighted comic aficionados with its savvy satire and pointed parodies of the last sixty years of comic book history. Ever since his historic comic book debut in 1952 (in “The Simpsons” universe), Radioactive Man (otherwise known as layabout playboy Claude Kane III) and his faithful sidekick Fallout Boy (aka former juvenile delinquent Rod Runtledge) have been making Zenith City safe from insidious evildoers such as Dr. Crab, Magmo the Lava Man, Hypno-Head, Larva Girl, Larceny Lass, and Richard Milhous Nixon—to name but a few.
On a grander scale, Radioactive Man often battles evil across the universe, and even between dimensions, in the ranks of the Superior Squad, a super team of metahumans that includes Captain Squid, Bug Boy, Plasmo the Mystic, Lure Lass, Weasel Woman, and Brave Heart!
For decades, fans have been clamoring for a deluxe collection of “Radioactive Man” tales. Now, at last, the Atomic Avenger receives the treatment he deserves in this comprehensive and historic archival edition of his greatest adventures!
