broken bones, earned him several entries in the Guinness Book of World Records.
No, not a toy, however, many toys in the 70's were inspired by him. My brothers and I thought he was the absolute, unquestionable, s-h-i-t. The man. He was the Elvis of crazy. The man who made deathlike stunts look oh, so ultra cool. Thus, the huge red and blue "EK" initials on his patriotic belt. Not many men can get away with that kind of stylish statement. Only Evel and Elvis. E and E. Two men who were over the top, bigger than life, flamboyant and yes, I think they both wore capes from time to time. Capes, for crying out loud! And they weren't even drag queens.
But they were superheroes.
God, I miss the 70's.
