The Lyrics

While researching for the challenge of creating a Madonna parody with the topic of a comic book or cartoon character, I came across a Marvel character I never heard of, and found his story to be quite intriguing. An African-American bullied 13-year old who gains super strength and stamina after exposure to a toxic waste spill. Maybe another hero to add to the Cinematic Universe if Disney starts running out of fresh ideas? Perhaps. Before the onslaught of commentary commences, my sole source is http://marvel.wikia.com/wiki/Elvin_Haliday_(Earth-616) , anything else is my own ignorance. Parody is based on the version of "Holiday" on The Immaculate Collection (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Za89RTKEIQM). Enjoy!
Haliday
Known as Rage
Haliday
Known as Rage
Let’s meet Elvin Haliday
A Marvel hero born of late
Had a normal young teen life
Until he—got his genes respliced
Like Peter Parker (nerd)
He underwent a huge mutation
Toxic waste was hurled
Huge transformation!

Was an Avenger sometimes
New Warrior in bad times (oh yeah)
Did not bring in top dollah, unlike T’Challa
It’s Elvin Haliday
(Oh man, he did mutate)
Led a sad kind of life
(Haliday)
So angry
His rage gifts him nice
Lift 150,000 pounds
And heal up from any nasty scrapes
Will he take a villain down--
Avengers Number Eight?

Can we find
More of his kind?
Team him with Black Panther
And date his sister
(A twisted thing to say!)
That is Elvin Haliday
I hope that we can demonstrate
(And please don’t remonstrate)
That a Marvel screen life
That a Marvel screen life
Is really
Half a web meme’s life!

Well, that’s Elvin Haliday
Oh yeah, oh yeah
To Old Cap he’d irritate
(Yeah, Cap, he’d irritate)
What a strange kind of life (Haliday!)
What a strange kind of life
Could he beat
Could he beat Hulk twice?

Interesting! I never heard of Rage before but he sounds like a great character... Even if he dated his sister. What?!?! Well done shining light upon the undiscovered

@Matthias...Thanks for the praise. No, no, no, I wasn't saying he dated his sister. I was suggesting that Rage hook up with Shuri, T'Challa's sister! (Age difference I can't vouch for, but there was a 5 year gap for Anakin and Amidala, so...)

It's always good for nostalgia to be made remember that there once was a golden age/time/culture where toxic waste credibly could give you superpowers and access to The Avengers instead of supermalign cancers and superangry enviromentalist rallies. The backstory here made me think of the movie Toxic Avenger.

I can imagine Rage and the Silver Surfer on the waiting list for the MCU. Great job on the Rage parody!

I know a train driver (we don't call them engineers over here) named Halliday but he ain't no super hero. That said, anyone named Elvin Haliday deserves something in life, being a super hero dude seems a fitting reward :)

I hadn't heard of Rage either before this song. I liked the dollah/T'Challa rhyme...and learned something new. The Toxic Avenger's little brother?

Nice job Ag. This is a parody-documentary mash-up. I learnt something today - about a guy called Elvin Haliday. And his colourful back story. Look forward to seeing his Hollywood debut - 555

Had to go look this one up. After reading about Dung Beetle Boy I thought we had another fictional hero. But I see that he is in a comic created in 1990. So I guess he predates the Rage that I knew about, which was a comic book character created by one of the Characters in QAF. Looks like they ripped off the original! ;-D Anyway, good parody and informative!
