Topsy Turvy Man
During the 1970s, confectioner and cakes maker Hostess advertised in major comic books. The advertisements were full-page comics starring Marvel and DC Comics characters (and Hostess products).
These comics were nonsensical and a parody of the most absurd aspects of Silver Age comics. They’re still fondly remembered for their goofiness.
Powers and Abilities
He makes people think that everything’s topsy-turvy. In DC Heroes RPG terms, he uses 1 AP of Gravity Decrease 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. In this position, his head is 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.
