"A different kind of hero"

Films: The Toxic Avenger (1984), The Toxic Avenger Part 2 (1989), The Toxic Avenger Part 3: The Last Temptation of Toxie (1989), Citizen Toxie: The Toxic Avenger 4 (2000)

Alias: Melvin Ford (or Junko), Toxie, the Monster Hero

Type: Mutant

Location: Civilized area/Eldritch location

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Good

Summary: The wild, bloody, madcap world of Tromaville can seem like a pretty grim place for the regular populace. But fear not citizens. Because this town is home to a true hero. The first to be born of pure toxic waste (we think). The Toxic Avenger!

History: Back then, Melvin Ford was the kid EVERYONE picked on. Scrawny and nerdy, it seemed like his life was going nowhere. But then his luck changed when a freak accident involving a kissed sheep, a tutu, a fall from a building, and a vat of nuclear waste transformed him into...something else. But unlike most mutants, Melvin's first instinct wasn't to tear the public apart. Instead, he channeled his newfound strength and size into becoming a bloody menace to crime, winning the public over and becoming the Toxic Avenger.

Notable Kills: Just from the first one, there's that...special way he used exercising equipment on a bad guy.

Final Fate: Over the years, Toxie has encountered all sorts of evil, and overpowered it all. He's taken out corrupt politicians, toppled Apocalypse Inc. and its CEO (literally the Devil), and even defeated his clone from an alternate dimension (the Noxious Offender of Amortville). Now, he has a kid, and is still going strong.

Powers/Abilities: Super strength

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 3-At first, Toxie looks like the kind of being that would rip your limbs off in a heartbeat. But in truth, he's a kind, courageous soul who rarely faulters, and always sticks out for the little guy. That said, try not to be a villain, otherwise your demise will be messy...

Trivia: -The first and second sequel were shot all at once, and released in the same year to limited success. Needless to say, the fourth film had a field day decrying those two films.

-Toxie's legacy has given rise to not only sequels, but two different cartoon shows, a stage musical, and a video game. In short, he's Troma's pride and joy.

Truly, Troma's saving grace has taken form.

Word to the youthful. Radioactive transformations are NEVER FUN.

Tokyo's already got a radiation problem thanks to Godzilla. Not sure about this.

Punching Satan while wearing a tutu? You can't say Troma's not original.

Yep. They're at it again.

This will soon be a thing...someday.
He's probably going to focus on taking on the Jersey Shore douchebags.

Lucky bastard. Most radioactive monsters don't get this much. Eh, he earned it.

You're already being torn apart by radiation. Why become a smoker?

Offended, yet?

The last known photograph of these humans.

Ladies, ladies, and more ladies.

That's a...dark way to end the franchise.

The face of a mutant who has seen it all.
Toxie, what the hell are you doing?! HOW IS THIS OKAY?!

Can we get him into the actual Avengers now?

It ain't all blood and gore. Herorism takes many forms.

"Sorry if this movie is bringing dishonor to your country. My bad."

Remember. Troma thinks this is the true Prince of Darkness. Yep.

I've heard of being besides yourself, but...
