The Toxic Avenger follows the story of a nerdy and aspiring scientist named Melvin Ferd, the Third who is transformed into a monstrous yet heroic figure. Armed with superhuman strength and a passion for justice, he sets out to save his polluted city while taking down the villains who have ravaged his community. Along the way, he encounters a beautiful and blind librarian, Sarah, who sees the goodness within him and becomes his ally and love interest. The Toxic Avenger is a campy ride that celebrates the triumph of the underdog.
