Is it even arguable that Captain Tootsie is the worst superhero ever? His name alone should earn him this distinction - he may as well have been called Captain Sweetheart. Then you have the added disgrace of his powers being derived from a Tootsie Roll. Only a superhero who gets his powers from a Celestial Seasonings teabag could be more lame.
Did Captain Tootsie just say "You're right FATSO"? Anyway, reading these wonderfully awful comics at The Comic Book Ad Hall of Fame you get the impression that Captain Tootsie loves his Tootsie Rolls just a little bit too much. He simply can't stop stuffing his face with them, and turning every opportunity into a chance for a Tootsie Roll fix.
I don't know which is more disturbing, (1) the fact that the Tootsie Roll company marketed their candy as a health food or (2) that Captain Tootsie is like a meth addict with these things.
Apparently, Captain Tootsie wasn't the only superhero getting high on his own supply - Volto, a superhero from Mars, got his power from Grape-Nuts cereal.
Funny how people can get so excited about a cereal that is often confused with aquarium gravel. Say what you want about the Martian civilization, they must be very regular.
