There's One At Every University!

You may have thought that it was just Vincent Von Doom.

But nope, every college has their dabblers in the forbidden:

Yup, they don't tell you this in the recruitment brochures, but every college has at least one maverick mad scientist (plus an ineffective Dean who doesn't expel the dude until after things blow up).

So, younger readers, before you sign on the dotted line for the higher education institute of your choice, you might want to research first, and see if they've had a major science/magic related accident the recently. If not, they're due...and you don't want to be caught in the backwash!!

[SPOILER ALERT: That wasn't Stugg's corpse in the explosion. He lured a gangster there and killed him to fake his own death, so he could go on to use his new radiation powers to become the "king of crime." Oh, academia...]

From Smash Comics #75 (1948)

I'm sorry, but panel 2 does not look like a "melancholy result" in my book.
