| William G. Maimes
| Character Information
William G. Maimes is a comic book publisher.
J.J. Bellwether went on WZEN News to talk about how Maimes' comics were causing juvenile delinquency in children. This was later backed up by child psychologist Hedrick Hertzmann, who also claimed that Maimes was a Soviet spy.
Maimes later stood trial for anti-American activities. Radioactive Man then flew in and presented a stack of Maimes' comics, which Dr. Crab had, as evidence. The congressional committee accepted this evidence and declared Maimes guilty, despite Maimes' claims that his competitors just wanted him out of business and he was innocent.
Behind the Laughter
Maimes's name is a reference to William Gaines, publisher of MAD from 1952 until his death in 1992. Like Maimes, Gaines was accused of promoting juvenile delinquency and antisocial behavior.
