Obnoxio the Clown
Obnoxio the Clown was also the title of a one-shot Marvel comic book that was published in April 1983. The plot centered on Obnoxio the Clown as a villain and unlikely ally of the X-Men. He and the group, at the X-Mansion, 'team-up' against Eye Scream, a villain that can transform into various types of ice cream.
The sole issue of the comic book was written, illustrated, colored, and lettered by Alan Kupperberg; in a comment which Kupperberg attributes to Peter David, and which David attributes to James Owsley, the comic was described as "Written, penciled, inked and lettered by Alan Kupperberg. Yes, it’s untouched by human hands."
