2010 is the 30th anniversary of Bananaman’s debut in DC Thomson’s comic Nutty.

The humour-based comic strip was essentially a parody of the superhero genre: Eric, our hero, was an ordinary schoolboy who eats a banana to transform into Bananaman, wearing a distinctive blue and yellow outfit with a two tailed cape resembling a banana. His special powers included the ability to fly, superhuman strength and apparent invulnerability.

Bananaman eventually transferred into The Dandy and is now published in The Dandy Xtreme Magazine.
