25. Leaf Erikson
Gunther Erikson was just your average blue collar hard working American man. After the downturn in the economy caused his lawncare and grounds keeping business to nearly crumble, Gunther was thrilled to win a big contract to do the fall cleanup of the grounds of Petrarch Bio-Chemical. While working alone afterhours to get the job done on time, Gunther was just piling the last the leaves into his truck when a explosion in one of the buildings blew. Gunther’s body was incinerated in the blast.
But he did not die.
By a Stan Lee-esque twist of fate, Gunther’s DNA was merged in the toxic chemical explosion with the leaves he was so diligently cleaning up. Now, he’s a walking, talking pile of leaves. After making it back home to his wife and kids, he was dismayed find that his wife, always sensitive to allergens, is allergic to him and horrified by his new form. She won’t even let his kids jump into a big pile of him! Rejected and alone, Erikson vowed to take revenge on Petrach Bio-Chemical and anyone who stands in his way as the powerful Leaf Erikson!
Note: This is what happens when mom makes me bag too many leaves. And yes, I’ll take the award for most shameless abuse of a standard photoshop brush. Thank you.
