[Editorial] Hear me out on this, Toxie is an honorary member of The Avengers.

Growing up I loved comics, and I loved watching Troma movies back in the days we didn’t have a whole lot of superhero movies or shows and the ones we did have…well they were suitable for that time being. In the old days, we had cartoons such as Iron Man, Fantastic Four, Silver Surfer, and even Batman.

Now and then we had some decent comic movies where given some of the films weren’t perfect, but we had no idea what the future will hold for us, so we just took it all in and were grateful for the movies which some of them still stand the test of time. One character in question is the Toxic Avenger. The plot is pretty simple if you never saw the movie “Tromaville has a monstrous new hero. The Toxic Avenger is born when meek mop boy Melvin falls into a vat of toxic waste. Now evildoers will have a lot to lose”

However the movie is even simpler. Gore, blood, boobs, language and humor For some, this is disgusting, vile. For gore hounds and comic fans, this was perfect. So let’s breakdown why Toxie is an honorary member.

In my opinion! There’s some stuff that may say true.

1: Marvel released the comics for Toxic Avenger 91-92 ( but still it happened)

2: The Avengers primarily work out of New York which isn’t far from New Jersey. Plus a lot of the Avengers do work in areas of NY that need their help or even other states and countries “West Coast Avengers” “Alpha Flight” The Canadian Avengers, Big Hero 6 (yes it’s Disney but they’re still connected, Japan’s Avengers) Winter Guard (Russia’s AvengersLockjaw and the pet avengers (Believe it or not great comic. Plus they actually fight Thanos)

3: Stan Lee and Lloyd Kaufman are friends. Stan did the voice over for Toxic Avenger 4. So given a lot of the Marvel characters who are Avengers defend their turf and situations that need their help. Plus in some instances, many characters from Marvel had helped the Avengers in battle when the case called for it. So, why not Toxie? He watches over New Jersey and their first super hero! Given the chance he would go into battle if called upon. Plus for all, we know he probably helped cleaned up all the ashes from the decimation in Infinity War.
