HUMBLE ERIC. He may look like an ordinary schoolboy but looks can be deceiving. Eric … he has a high pitched voice that may conjure up the word ‘wimp’ in your mind … you would not be wrong as Eric’s surname is Wimp! We can find Eric Wimp at 29 Acacia Road. The world needs Eric. When Eric gobbles down a Banana he’s transformed into to a muscle bulging, toothy, cloak wearing superhero. Humble Eric is transformed into Bananaman.
Batman … far to serious and spends far too much time in his man cave … not really up for a giggle either. Superman … he’s far too busy chasing Lois and turns into a useless mess once a chunk of Kryptonite goes flying his way. Now when it comes to Bananaman, we’re onto a winner. Watch him unconventionally claw his way through the sky whilst dashing to a crime scene. His arrival at a crime scene is not usually subtle … smashing though a wall or roof is typical of the arrival of our fruity superhero. Once at the crime scene, Bananaman would stand bold, display his toothy smile and track down the villains using his Banana power or one of his Banana gadgets. Villains would try to outwit, out-muscle and out-trick Bananaman and fail. One particular villain, The Weatherman, thought he had the better of Bananaman when he zapped him with his ice gun, but he did not account for Bananaman’s electronic thermal underwear! Ice melted and Bananaman saves the world.
The fact is that Bananaman is not the sharpest knife in the cutlery draw. He keeps things uncomplicated and gets the job done. His disguises are … well … non existent … his report would would read ‘must try harder’ when it comes to disguises. The thing with Bananaman is that he makes crimefighting fun. Many of us when shrivel up like Slug dosed with Salt if we had to fight notorious criminals. Bananaman takes his responsibility as a superhero seriously but has lots of fun along the way and always has THAT huge smile on his face.
So who you gonna call when the villains are causing havoc? 999? Batman? Superman? Reading this blog hopefully will make you see sense. There’s only one person to call … Eric. As long as Eric has a Banana nearby, his response time is immediate. Who else gets guarantees results? Who else has a huge grin on his face whilst out dealing with villains? Bananaman. You know it makes sense.
