Topsy-Turvy Man (Hostess comics)

Topsy Turvy Man

Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game

Powers and Abilities

He makes people think that everything’s topsy-turvy. Basically, he uses 1 Ap of GD on a large area to cause money and other lightweight objects to float up where he can catch them. He can also use all 2 APs in order to affect a character like Batman.

One thing which adds to the topsy-turvy illusion is the fact that when he uses his Air Walking power, he is upside down, with his head only a few feet off the ground.


He appeared in The Whole World’s Upside Down, which appeared in Adventure #451. Topsy-Turvy Man was menacing Gotham. Batman tried to stop him, but was thwarted momentarily when Topsy-Turvy Man turned him upside down. Batman still managed to beat him up, though. And everyone got their Hostess Fruit Pies back again.


He is bald on top. He has brown hair on the sides of his head. He wears a green suit with brown shoes.


He just wants to steal stuff, like money and Hostess Fruit Pies.
