This article on Elijah Wood and Julia Davis’s toxic avenger reboot explores the details of a film where we will explore what would happen if you realigned the Toxie character, with more fighting but still rooted in who it was originally. It has some really cool set pieces that are just amazing.”The Toxic Avenger is an action horror revenge thriller superhero movie based around three scripts… One script deals with Dr. Einstien’s origin story – how he came to be; one script deals with The Bride Of Frankenstein origins story [sic]—how she became a bride of Frankenstein; and one script deals with The Toxic Avenger’s origin story – how he became the Toxic avenger.”

Toxie is a superhero who was turned into a humanoid monster after being unknowingly dumped in a vat of hazardous waste. He has superhuman strength and power but also suffers from hideous skin conditions that force him to wear long underwear and gloves on his hands at all times. After rescuing an innocent woman from some perverts, Toxie becomes aware of himself as a hero, which fuels his desire for revenge against Dr. Einstien (who had caused the accident that leads to Toxie’s transformation)
