Radioactive Man, The Official Movie Adaption is a Radioactive Man comic story first printed in Radioactive Man: The Official Movie Adaptation.

Synopsis[edit]

"At last! The story can be told, and the weekend box office receipts can be counted! The film that put the Springfield Tourism and Film Production Office on the map and bankrupted a major Hollywood studio is ready for release and Bongo Comics is pleased to present the long awaited - official movie adaptation! Starring Rainier Wolfcastle as Radioactive Man and introducing Milhouse Van Houten as his trusted sidekick Fallout Boy, this faithful four color rendition of the Nuclear Knight's tragically heroic origin and his fight for fairly-conservative values will have every man, woman, and child in America looking to the skies and exclaiming those famous words, "Up and Atom!""


Plot[edit]

A group of thugs are attacking a guy when Radioactive Man comes in and saves him. Later, at WZEN News, Gloria Grand is interviewing Dr. Swartzwelder about Radioactive Man. Dr. Swartzwelder thinks that Radioactive Man is just a shared delusion by the people of Zenith City, although Gloria Grand disagrees. After the interview, Claude Kane III asks Gloria out, but Gloria tells him that she's interviewing Claude Kane II, his father, shortly.

Meanwhile, on the U.S.S. Serendipity, Silly Sailor is trying to keep a group of criminals distracted with his jokes and tricks. However, this doesn't have much of an impact on them. The thugs take Mrs. Runtledge, the mother of Rod Runtledge, hostage. At WZEN News, Gloria's interview with Claude Kane II is cut short by the news of the hostage situation. Claude Kane III then runs off and changes into Radioactive Man to go and save the hostages. During the fight, Silly Sailor is knocked overboard. As Radioactive Man flies back to WZEN Tower, he sees Gloria Grand get knocked off her balcony. He saves her and the two fly around the city before he returns Gloria to WZEN Tower, where she falls asleep. Waking up, she is told that it must have been a dream.

Silly Sailor is drinking at a tavern when he is approached by several clowns. They take him to see Dr. Clownius. At the same time, Rod Runtledge gets trapped under an X_Ray truck and gains superpowers similar to those of Radioactive Man. Radioactive Man decides to train him. Dr. Clownius then reveals to all the other clowns that he is sick of clowns no longer being funny, and wants them to be feared instead. Silly Sailor agrees to take part in this plan.

Gloria Grand gets kidnapped by Silly Sailor and Radioactive Man and Fallout Boy go to save her. Silly Sailor uses a special gas to remove their powers then traps them in a cage. Fallout Boy manages to escape through the bars where he is then taken home by his mother. As Radioactive Man was about to get ht by a flood of sulfuric acid, Fallout Boy comes to his rescue and tells him that they've had their powers back for hours and the gas was only temporary. They then stop Silly Sailor and rescue Gloria.

Radioactive Man and Fallout Boy then go back to WZEN Tower to stop Dr. Swartzwelder from broadcasting harmful lies about Radioactive Man. They then unmask him to reveal him as Dr. Clownius. Dr. Clownius is arrested whilst Radioactive Man and Fallout Boy go on to their next adventure.
