The Funnyman wiki last edited by turoksonofstone on 05/14/13 05:12AM View full history

The last creation of Superman creators Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster, Funnyman was their attempt to catch lightning in a bottle a second time, appearing both in a comic from Magazine Enterprises and as a newspaper strip.

Comic Larry Davis thought he was taking part in a publicity stunt for his new TV show, little did he know that the crooks he was batting about were real criminals.

Having taken them out he decided that fighting crime in his spare time might be fun, so using a combination of comedy gags, such as squirting flowers and boxing gloves on springs, and disorienting the bad guys with stinging banter he kept at it as Funnyman.(Funnyman was based on movie star Danny Kaye.)
