"Atom-Bomb Baby"

Film: The Day the World Ended (1955)

Alias: None

Type: Mutant

Location: Forest

Height/Weight: Slightly bulkier than an average human.

Affiliation: Neutral

Summary: When wandering the wasteland, be aware that not everything got wiped out by the atom bomb. In fact, in some cases, things got even stronger and stranger after it dropped. In this case, a humanoid monster with a taste for radioactive goodness.

History: After an apocalyptic nuclear war, several mutations began to rise. However, only one came to menace a few survivors. In this case, the mutated husband-to-be of one of them. A shame too, because it was perfectly content eating the animals that were contaminated by the radiation.

Notable Kills: None.

Final Fate: After chasing two humans, his original lover included, the rains finally come to bring life to the destroyed world, causing the monster to run off and slowly die from exposure to the water.

Powers/Abilities: The ability to survive irradiated areas with a bit of super strength.

Weakness: The monster cannot stand water at all.

Scariness Factor: 2-Despite an interesting appearance, the stiffness of the suit and the beast's awful weakness keep it from being much of a threat.

Trivia: -There is such thing as being allergic to water on the skin. It is called aquagenic urticarial, and very few people have it.

-The monster was played by B-movie effects wizard Paul Blaisdell, who designed it as well.

"So, atom bombs, death, and mutants don't faze you, lady?"

The rains come and...sigh.
"Brings a new meaning to Black Friday, amirite humans?"

"If I have you...should I kill at all?"

"See? This is a much more natural reaction! Just had to turn up the flames."
