The Lyrics

Inspired by Porfle with an added verse too! The 1940s Superhero The Whizzer is an oddball character named Robert Frank who went on an expedition with his father Dr. Emil Frank into Africa only to be bitten by a Cobra. Dr. Frank uses Mongoose blood for a tranfusion and suddenly his son possesses super agility, super strength, and can run at fantastic speeds of up to 100 mph! He dons a yellow costume and becomes The Whizzer (just like DC's Flash). He joins the Liberty Legion through Bucky of the Invaders and fights the Red Skull. After WW2 he falls into depression, drinking, and becomes homeless until he joins the All-Winners and marries Lady Liberty. Working in a nuclear facility postwar he has a son named Nuklo who has superhuman powers due to the effect of his father's exposure to radiation at the lab and mutant genes! Whizzer fights with the Avengers but is delusional and thinks Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are his children. He has a heart attack and by the end of his career fight Isbisa, a WW2 foe, only to suffer another heart attack and dies, but cures his son Nuklo of radiation contamination! A weird character with a very tragic ending.
Can you believe the Whizzer,
bit by Cobra, saved by Mongoose blood!
No one can believe that fast speed of his
100 mph run!

If ever, oh ever, a Whiz there was,
the Whizzer by blood is one because,
because, because, because, because, because-
because of the incredible speeds he runs!

Can you believe the Whizzer,
bit by Cobra, saved by Mongoose blood!

[Added Verse]
A Superhero he has become
Blaze yellow costume just like the sun
Gold streak, he runs, and runs, and runs...

Can you believe the Whizzer,
bit by Cobra, saved by Mongoose blood!

Fun parody. I had no idea the Whizzer had such a weird backstory.

Neither did I... but keep passing on any other obscure Superheroes you know :)

With a name like that, I would have guessed his superpower was the ability to spray streams of super-pee or something. Oh well, you learn something new every day!
