Powers/Abilities: As well as being superstrong and having a variety of gadgets at his disposal, Batfink's most memorable ability resided on his back. As he was extremely fond of reminding viewers, his "wings are like a shield of steel!", capable of deflecting bullets and other projectiles.

History: Born in an abandoned plutonium mine, Batfink was a mutant with human level intelligence and superhuman abilities. When he was a child criminals blew up the mine, and Batfink lost his wings rescuing his mother. Driven by this episode to fight crime, he replaced his wings with metal ones made by a Japanese blacksmith, then took the blacksmith's son as his sidekick Karate, and became a crimefighter, most frequently thwarting the evil machinations of mad scientist Hugo a Go Go.
