Story

Set in the fictional town or Tromaville, Exit 13B in New Jersey, The Toxic Avenger tells the story of Melvin Ferd the Third, a hopeless dweeb with bulky glasses who loves science almost as much as he loves Sarah, the local (and very blind) librarian. When Melvin discovers the mayor has been littering the town with radioactive waste, he storms into her office and vows to expose her. But not before her flunkies get a hold of him and toss him into a vat of toxic waste. But what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, and Melvin emerges from the goo as a green mutant with superhuman strength! Now the town knows him as Toxie, New Jersey’s first superhero, and he’s a man (or thing) on a mission, out to crush some heads, save Tromaville and, of course, win the heart of that blind chick.
