Dirk Richter is the actor who portrayed Radioactive Man in the Radioactive Man.


There are apparently many "sordid details" regarding Richter's final years. He was found dead in a bordello, where his body was riddled with bullets. Buddy Hodges, the actor who played Fallout Boy, insinuates that he had a special relationship with Richter.[1]

He was later mentioned as a possible choice to play Radioactive Man in a Radioactive Man. However, the director of the film pointed out that Richter was "73 years old and dead."[2]

Dirk Richter starred as Radioactive Man in the musical You're a Swell Guy, Radioactive Man.[3]
