Señor Fusion is a fictional superhero from a series of comic books of the same name, loved by many Recess characters, especially T.J. Detweiler. In the TV series, it is understood that he is completely fictional.
His comics are traded, amongst others, at Third Street School; the comics are traded under a system of barter (under which, their value could go up or down versus items such as Winger Dingers and US Dollars).
Along with the comic book series, a feature-length movie on Señor Fusion was shown in the episode "The First Picture Show;" with the whole school (including the faculty but excluding Lawson) seeing it. This episode was the first one (1A) in the fourth season, which was the largest with 23 (split into 46).
Personality and Appearance
It is understood that he homages mainstream superheroes like Superman, Batman, and Spiderman and that he is like these in the sense that he is both omnibenevolent and omnipotent.
He sports the stereotypical superhero look: outfit's very animated and colorful, has a mask, and has forgettable catchphrases. The outfit is, however, a matador outfit and mask; T.J. has a huge collection of his comics.
HistoryIn many episodes, like in "Hustler's Apprentice," "Bad Hair Day," and "Chez Vince," the students use Señor Fusion comics to bribe or trade.
Señor Fusion is voiced by Frank Welker.
Señor Fusion was created by Larry 'Lupin' Rogan.
- He was originally dubbed as Señor Electricity; however, this was changed to Señor Fusion at an unknown prior to the events in Recess and after the creator, Larry Rogan, retired from the comic book business.
