(Superhelden Agenda '89-'90) - Frietje Piet was a Belgian superhero who worked with Zak Patat.

(Marvel Atlas#1, Belgium entry) - The appearance of a crime-fighting Spider-Man imitator (Hans Jansen) in the neighboring Netherlands briefly inspired a craze of (mostly - see comments) non-powered costumed wannabes in Belgium, including Ma Yonaise, Zak Patat, Frietje Piet, Atomiumman, and Manneke Pis; luckily all apparently swiftly retired before any of them were seriously injured.

Comments: Created by Steven De Rie.

   Frietje Pietwas a tongue-in-cheek Belgian hero created as part of a series of one-panel characters in the Dutch diary Superhelden Agenda '89-'90. Though deliberately silly, he's no more ludicrous than, say, Phone Ranger, and like him he has since been confirmed to be a genuine individual on Earth-616, in his case in Belgian's Marvel Atlas entry. Appearing in only a single panel, he's mostly a blank slate. Described as being a Belgian hero, he's presumably either of Belgian nationality or based in Belgium, but it may be that only one of those holds true.

   Though the Atlas text states that the costumed heroes inspired by Hans Jansen were non-powered, his illustration suggests he's not human. Maybe some radioactive mayonnaise gave Ma Yonaise her powers and simultaneously brought to life her French fries to create Zak Patat and Frietje Piet? Yes, I know that's a bizarre origin idea, but we've seen weirder in 616.
