The Toxic Avenger starred Mark Torgl as Melvin, a New Jersey-based janitor who, after being pushed into a vast area of toxic waste, becomes disfigured and fights against bad guys as a superhero named Toxie. Hmmm sounds interesting. 

The film led to three sequels: The Toxic Avenger Part II (1989), The Toxic Avenger Part III: The Last Temptation of Toxie (1989), and Citizen Toxie: The Toxic Avenger IV (2000). The franchise also spanned a brief animated children’s TV show, Toxic Crusaders, a stage musical, a video game and a Marvel comic.

In other news, our favourite GoT star is also set to reunite with his former co star Jason Mamoa in the upcoming Good, Bad & Undead where they’ll play reluctant allies. The movie will feature Peter Dinklage as Van Helsing, the last in a line of noted vampire hunters, while Jason Momoa will play a vampire who has taken a vow to never kill again.
