History: (Crazy Magazine#78) - Nadir's Raiders hounded a fleeing Hulk with questions regarding his actions that had negatively impacted on the poor versus his anti-establishement position, and his stance on nuclear power and his disposal of personal nuclear waste.
Comments: Created by Paul Kirchner.
Nadir's Raiders were among several heroes to appear in a four page feature in Crazy#78, titled "More Marvel Heroes Who Didn't Quite Make It," a follow-up feature to a similar entry in Crazy#71. There's nothing to rule them out from fitting in with Earth-616 (or having a counterpart there), or maybe they're from the same reality as Teen Hulk and, presumably, the other Crazy regulars, Earth-80360. It's almost certainly a sign of my increasing insanity, but I'd personally love to see them all get introduced into the Marvel universe proper, possibly taking on the heroes who "didn't make the cut" from Marvel Year in Review '93, the Hostess villains, Crazy and Not Brand Ecch's regular characters (Obnoxio, Forbush Man, Teen Hulk, Behemoth Jack, Aunty Nuke, etc.), and all the other "fringeworthy" characters (such as Cougar or Puzzle Man). It's not like some of them haven't already made it into 616 (Phone Ranger, Lectronn, etc), and these guys are no more bizarre than many of the others who preceded them into 616 canon.
A spoof on Ralph Nader?
