Synopsis
The infant Twink-Ell is jettisoned from the planet Kreepton before it explodes. After being kicked out by the Kettles, he names himself Stuporman, the Man of Steam, and decides to fight crime. Further empowered by the Natural Comics Publications Inc, he conquers all crime. Changing their mind about Stuporman being so powerful, Wienieburger and Birdwell develop Kreeptonite as a challenge. They also develop a long line of "stupor"-sidekicks. Stuporman ships the sidekicks, Wienieburger and Birdwell off in a rocket.
