The Happy Campers

History: (NFL SuperPro#10) - The Happy Campers are four college buddies who joined Camp Runamuk's program to "awaken the inner super-hero" for old time's sake. They were subjected to silly rituals along with the investigative reporters Phil Grayfield (aka the NFL SuperPro) and Ken Reid (his cameraman). They were also subjected to the same experimental ray Grayfield was, which Carragone was using to try and grant superpowers. It didn't work for Grayfield (who was already super-powerful), but it gave Kwong, Walsh, Moody and Pennypacker powers based on characteristics of their personalities and lives. With their newfound powers, they helped the SuperPro defeat Carragone and his sportsmen backers (Hubert Carlyle, Pete Petunia, Edwin Dood and The Surfer). Atop a pile of their defeated enemies, they chose their aliases and their team's name -- much to SuperPro's despair.




Comments: Created by Buzz Dixon, Jose Delbo and Mike de Carlo.

You know, of all the costumed folks out there, the NFL SuperPro is the last you'd think in position to bitch about lame aliases, and yet he dismisses the Happy Campers. Sheesh.
