Powers/Abilities: White-Collar Criminal used his mastery of accountancy to commit fraud and become rich.
History: (Crazy Magazine#71) - By using his knowledge of bookkeeping, White-Collar Criminal tried to hide that he was secretly siphoning money from a large corporation into his Swiss bank account. However, he had not reckoned on C.P.A. Man checking the figures and detecting his villainy.
Comments: Created by Paul Kirchner.
White-Collar Criminal (and his foe, C.P.A. Man) were two amongst several characters who appeared 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, Behemoth Jack, Teen Hulk, 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.
Given the title of the article ("Heroes" who didn't make it), presumably C.P.A. Man was strictly speaking the star; however, he only got a single panel to White-Collar Man's three, so the villain gets to be the headliner and C.P.A. Man the subprofile.

C.P.A. (Certified Public Accountant) Man was the hero who spotted White-Collar Criminal's viciously fraudulent accounting. The Champion of Proper Bookkeeping, he saw through the villain's deceptive double entries and decimal point shifting.
