Major Story Arc
The Nuclear Waste
The Neutron Bum was once an average homeless man, living in an abandoned storage facility somewhere under New York City. One night, a power surge in a defective junction box interacted with the barrels of radioactive waste on which he was sitting. Somehow, the nameless hobo survived the explosion and made his way up to street level. Once out on the street, he accosted a passing pedestrian, begging for fifty cents for a cup of coffee. Outraged by his victims refusal the Bum grabbed the man by the shoulder, only to watch the rude man explode.
With his newfound power, the Neutron Bum began to make his way through downtown Manhattan, demanding ever increasing amounts of money for a cup of coffee. He was opposed by many of Marvel's greatest heroes, including Ghost Rider
, the Avengers
, the Fantastic Four
, and the New Warriors
. None could stop him, until the unlikey hero, Slapstick
actually brought him a cup of coffee. While the Bum was enjoying the cup o' joe, Slaptick knocked him out with a giant mallet. Thus ended the reign of the Neutron Bum.

The Neutron Bum could generate devastating nuclear explosions, to which he himself seemed to be largely immune.
