What is a seven-letter word for lunatic? Ambush Bug. On the planet Schwab, Brum-El got awards for being the "most well dressed" and became famous. One day, he got a letter (that he thought if he threw it away his life would be completely unchanged). So he did. He soon learn that it was really a intergalactic chain-letter! He should have been careful, because the last person to break the chain-letter was Jor-EL of Krypton! The now-disgraced Brum-El built an one-person rocket to save his clothes. But it was attacked by a radioactive, space spider, steering it toward Earth. In the attack and falling to Earth, only three pieces of clothes survived: 2 socks and a green, super suit with two orange antennae. Irwin Schwab (of Earth) was in his apartment and went to the roof to see what was wrong with the television antenna and discovered the now-damage rocket. He manage to get the suit and discovered the antenna were hollow and they created "bug-bots" that could teleport him. Meanwhile, Brum-El was actually looking forward to his planet's doom, only to have none thing happened. At first Irwin used this suit for evil and tried to destroy Superman as Ambush Bug, but only annoy him. So he became a hero and tried to befriend him, only to annoy him. This is because, due to his mental illness, Irwin can't understand what really is happening around him. He usually has bizarre adventure such as getting sent to Underworld and get forced to do stand-up comedy. His arch-enemy is a living sock called "Argh! Yle!" with a Dr. Doom-like mask.
