Fisher Man



This hero was inspired by Ariel. After looking at his piece, I decided it was time Viet Nam had a hero!

Fisher Man was born Toby Booi during the Depression and grew up a frail youth in a poor family in Viet Nam. His father died when he was a child, his mother when he was in his late teens. Horrified by newsreel footage of the Communist in N. Vietnam, Booi was inspired to become a fisherman. However, because of his frailty and sickness, he was rejected. Overhearing the boy's earnest plea to be accepted, a captain of a rich fishing boat offered Booi the opportunity to take part in a special experiment called Operation: Rebooi. Toby Booi agreed and was taken to a secret laboratory in Saigon; where he was introduced to Dr. Han Some, the creator to the Super-Fisherman formula.

With this formula, he caught a huge ass fish. He knocks people out with the fish. He is the greatest fisherman alive...the Fisher Man!

Damn. I need a job...

I love the concept and funny story man. It's got a 300 meets Hokusai look to it. And hey, Argentina already has a futbol related hero: Maradona!
