With supervillains Doctor Gloom and General Blight attempting world domination, who can we call? Superman’s on holiday. Spiderman’s not picking up. Our only option – our very, very last option – is Bananaman. Bananaman, the Man-of-Peel, is a unique member of the superhero ranks. This handsome hero may have a jaw line you can see from space and sport the snazziest of tight lycra outfits, but he’s also got “the muscles of 20 men and the brain of 20 mussels.” (Which isn’t much.) With a useless hero and some equally clueless villains, Bananaman’s winkingly clever, delightfully silly humour has been sealed into the memories of those who saw him first, and will now spark the imagination of a new bunch of Bananafans. It won’t be long before we all peel the power of Bananaman!
