Radioactive Man is a long running comic book series based on the popular super hero of the same name. The first issue was published in November 1952. It was created by Morty Mann, and then the ownership of the comic was handed over to Arnold Leach and Boffo Comics, but was later handed back over to Mann.

Publication history[edit]

Radioactive Man was created by Morty Mann in 1952. However, in the 1940s, there was a precursor to Radioactive Man called "Radio Man". However, Radio Man never starred in a radio show.

In the 1950s, Radioactive Man was made, starring Dirk Richter and Buddy Hodges. The 1967 Radioactive Man show and the movie that was spun-off from it is less fondly remembered though.

Radioactive Man starred in Civil Defense shorts such as Duck and Cover with Radioactive Man and Radioactive Man and Dad Build a Fallout Shelter.

In the 1960s, Radioactive Man starred in a musical You're a Swell Guy, Radioactive Man. The musical closed on opening night.

In the 1970s, Radioactive Man teamed up with Itchy and Scratchy in Radioactive Man and His Buddies. The show now has a cult following, but it was criticized for having violent content and schmaltzy sermonizing.

At some point, Radioactive Man the movie was being made in Springfield, starring Rainier Wolfcastle as Radioactive Man and Milhouse Van Houten as Fallout Boy.[1]
