Herbie did not graduate, and when his father threatened to become a costume hero, Herbie created the Fat Fury. Not a licensed, graduate hero, but he'd do. He wore red flannel underwear, a blue cape, a blue mask and a plunger on his head. The Fat Fury rescues the Statue of Liberty and defeats Mr. Horrible.
