Not Brand Echh

I decided to talk about a comic book series that parodies "normal" comic book characters. "Brand Echh" was term Stan Lee used to describe Marvel's competitors, hence the name. A typical issue would include parodies of comic characters (even Marvel's) in stories like Ironed Man (a Iron Man parody) vs. Mangus, the Robot Biter (a parody of Mangus, the Robot Figther). The comic introduced a memorible character called Forbush Man. Forbush Man was a wannbe hero with no powers and wore cooking pot in his head and red long johns with letter "F" on it. Events took place in the "Marble Universe".
