Dead and loving it.

Ectofreak is the combination of several sources of inspiration. Firstly, he was created to emulate the "macabre comedy" often found in the work of Tim Burton. His name, powers, and the fact he is a ghost were all inspired by Ghostbusters, and his name was also based on the character Ghostfreak of Ben 10. His personality and style are based partly on Jim Carrey's The Mask, partly on Beetlejuice, and partly on Deadpool. All of this blends together into a wacky, semi-psychotic, loose cannon of a hero with a ruthlessly crude sense of humor, and a bizzare outlook on he subject of death.


Ectofreak is a ghost, and as such his presence in the material plane creates a gelatinous byproduct known as ectoplasm. This glowing green goop is highly charged with psycho-kinetic energy, and Ectofreak is capable of harnessing this energy for a myriad of uses. Most notably: sapping his foes, exploding, and smelling absolutely terrible. Though these ectoplasm blasts are bright, flashy, and indeed capable of incapacitating his opponents, they cause no lasting damage and victims are left uninjured if not in need of several showers. This allows him to attack with wild abandon and generally make a mess of everything while maintaining his status as a hero.
