Bananaman is one of Britain's fattest, ugliest and most famous superheroes. He originally appeared in Nutty as the back page strip in Issue 1, dated 16 February drawn by John Geering. He has since appeared in The Dandy and The Beano. Eric Wimp, an ordinary schoolboy living at 29 Acacia Road, Nuttytown later changed to Dandytown and then Beanotown when the strip moved to other comics , eats a banana to transform into Bananaman, an adult superhero, sporting a distinctive cowled blue and yellow outfit complete with a yellow two-tailed cape resembling a banana skin. His superpowers include the ability to fly, superhuman strength, and seeming invulnerability. This is offset by the fact that he is just as naive and foolish as his alter ego; as mentioned in the comic once or twice, he has the muscles of twenty men and the brains of twenty mussels. In other word's he is stupid. If Bananaman needs extra power, bananas can be eaten for strength boosts, provided by his sidekick Crow; if he does not have enough strength to shatter an ice block, for example, after eating another banana, he will have enough. If he eats lots of bananas in one sitting, he quickly becomes obese in his transformation; if he eats bananas that are not full, he transforms with extra weight in the lower part of his body. There have also been comics where he has eaten a variant on normal bananas, and transforms differently, reflecting the difference in that banana.
