Handi-Man

Handicapped superhero seen on comedy skits on IN LIVING COLOR/FOX/1990-94. Damon Wayans appeared as Clark Bent, a black mailroom man who worked for the Daily Glove newspaper.

Clark’s alter ego was Handi-Man, a physically challenged superhero with gnarled hands who fought the likes of Doctor Naughty (Jim Carrey), who hated the handicapped because he once received a ticket for parking in a handicapped spot.

Handi-man wore a white cap and a handicap-blue costume with a wheelchair logo on his chest. He was occasionally assisted by a dwarfish blonde person called the Tiny Avenger.

After vanquishing the bad guys, Handi-man said, “Never underestimate the powers of the handicapped.”
