Toxie Cleans Up the Town
“The Toxic Avenger” is set in Tromaville, New Jersey, the so-called toxic waste dumping ground for America with a scrawny, 90-pound janitor, Melvin Furd (Mark Torgl). Just like in any underdog story, Melvin is constantly bullied by Bozo (Gray Schneider) and his band of misfits. Due to his weight disadvantage and shy nature, Melvin is unable to fight back, making him the perfect target for all of Bozo’s pranks. When one of these pranks goes horribly wrong, leading to Melvin’s fall out of a window into a drum of toxic waste, our zero nerd becomes the hero, “Toxie” (Mitchell Cohen). In true heroic fashion, Toxie makes it his mission to clean the town of Tromaville from thugs and villains, while rescuing the blind damsel in distress, Sara (Andree Maranda).
