** They also had a recurring superhero who got his powers when he fell headfirst into a bucket of radioactive waste. The only problem? The bucket was stuck on his head, and thereafter served as his mask. He once fought a villain who's origin story was similar, but actually used a brown paper bag (why he couldn't just tear it off isn't addressed).
