Born of 1990s Ssturday Night Live, his theme song promises that he is the hero with powers and knowledge that younger men lack, a pretty useful set of abilities.  Indeed, Middle-Aged Man comes from a long line of heroes: His father, Old Man, used to be Middle-Aged Man, and his son, Young Man will one day take his place.  (His grandfather is Dead Man, presumably no relation to Boston Brand.  With his sidekick, Drinkin’ Buddy, he solves problems that many young folks never even considered, and knows where all his appliance warranties are.  His only weakness is self-consciousness about his spare tire, but HE’S WORKING ON IT!  Why is he on this particular list, you ask?

Middle-Aged Man is brought to life by the acting skills of one Michael Myers.

You’re welcome…

About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. I think you mean 1986’s Manhunter, not Red Dragon. Red Dragon was the loose re-adaptation of Manhunter from 2002.
