Radioactive Man is the greatest superhero in the Simpsons universe.



The primary origin story has Claude Kane III getting his trousers caught on barbed wire at a nuclear test site just before a mega-bomb explodes. The resultant exposure transforms him into superhero Radioactive Man. Joined eventually by a sidekick, Fallout Boy, Radioactive Man goes on to fight supervillain Dr. Crab, evil robots, etc.

Radioactive Man has been portrayed on screen by Dirk Richter, Troy McClure, and Rainier Wolfcastle. In the comics, he has an uncanny resemblance to Homer Simpson himself.
