Actually the Simpson's Radioactive Man is a rip off of 50s dud Atoman... or should I say he is a satire of Atoman (and maybe The Hulk (his origin) and Dr Solar)
The biggest rip of, though, is the Shiar Imperial Guard.
Man for man, they are almost an exact clone on the Legion of Superheroes.
Gladiator = Superboy
Oracle = Saturn Girl
Starbolt = Sun Boy
Titan = Colossal Boy
Nightside = Night Girl
Fang = Timber Wolf
Hobgoblin = Chameleon Boy
Flashfire = Lightning Lad
Electron = Cosmic Boy
Mentor = Brianiac Five
Scintilla = Shrinking Violet
Astra = Phantom Girl
They even had clones of Bouncing Boy and Matter Eater Lad.
Oh okay i just read it somewhere on Wikipedia and got the wrong end of it.
But isn't Plastic Man the son of Elongated Man or something. That's why i thought he was first, before Mr.Fantastic.
No. Plas came first. Elongated Man was supposed to be Silver Age revivals version of Plas (like Barry and Jay)
