Roderick Bump is an unsuccessful scientist who, after blowing up 327 homes of his parents, goes out to make his living. He creates defective superheroes: Moronman, Garbageman, Halfaman, Monkeyman, Pigman, Pizzaman, and Frogman who unleash a crime wave. Nemesis is called from the Adventures into the Unknown and Magicman from Forbidden Worlds, but they are quickly frozen solid. The Fat Fury comes to the rescue and the superheroes combine forces.
