History: (Crazy Magazine#71) - After a radioactive refrigerator fell on Fred Ferlick, he awoke to find he possessed strange new powers. He became Refrigerator Man, and, coming to the conclusion that he had been given his powers for a reason, he swore he'd never use them to fight crime. After all, he paid his taxes, so the cops could handle it. Instead he became a successful bartender and gong show contestant.
Comments: Created by Paul Kirchner.
Refrigerator Man was one of several heroes to appear in a
four page feature in Crazy#71, titled "Marvel Heroes Who Didn't Quite Make
It." A follow-up feature in Crazy#78 introduced several more of these guys.
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,
Hulk, Aunty Nuke, etc.), and all the other "fringeworthy" characters
Man). It's not like some of them haven't already made it into 616
etc), and these guys are no more bizarre than many of the others who preceded
them into 616 canon.
