Why is it that nobody remembers the name of

Though always a minor hero, the Fat Fury was a rare example of a comedy superhero who was both funny AND effective, even if his father considered him nothing but a waste of skin, calling the boy (to his FACE) “a worthless fat nothing.” Indeed, the very mention of Herbie The Fat Fury has a tendency to invoke actual anger in the comics fans that I know, as though they themselves were influenced by the poor and perfidious parenting of Papa Popnecker. (I also won’t bring up the large part that the character of Clara Oswin Oswald had in the formulation of today’s query.)
