High Priest Rey sits down for a solo review of another story written by a Moon Knight Alumni...this time no less than Doug Moench himself! Marvel had a Toxic Avengers series in the 90's...this here is the discussion based around the TOXIC First Issue!
PHASE OF THE MOON: Waxing Gibbous
SEGMENT: OTHER SIDE OF THE MOON
The Toxic Avenger Vol. 1 #1
"A Hideously Deformed Creature of Superhuman Size and Strength Is Born "
When health club janitor, Melvin Junko discovers the origin of his toxic fate, the Toxic Avenger is born!
Shenanigans are aplenty at Tromaville and a consort of criminals terrorise the town, shifting toxic waste and brandishing uzis.
A house for the blind is swept up in flames thanks to the deadly Ms. Mephi but the Toxic Avengers jumps in to save those trapped within. It’s here he meets Claire and after punching the face in of her would-be captor, the two soon seemingly fall in love.
Junko recalls how he became the Toxic avenger to Claire, and in a twist of fate, the health club where he worked, was traumatised and eventually transformed, is also run by Mr. Ahriman…who seems to have ties with the criminal underworld.
Claire delcares that evil is afoot and we soon see minions of the Elite Corp Blackstar 666…a group headed by the mysterious Chairman.
Claire and Junko have little time to themselves, when all of a sudden the Blackstar 666 make their entrance in grandiose fashion…a tank headed by one of the goons the Toxic Avenger let get away from a previous scuffle…
The issue ends with the tank cannon pointed firmly at ….The Toxic Avenger…
