Burt Weston was a former stuntman and failed actor whom preferred impersonating villains, as he considered them more complex and multidimensional. The second Film Freak is Edison, a disturbed film buff who hosted a late-night W.U.A.B. TV Studios-operated show displaying amateur film clips made by his underlings (who also robbed high-end cameras on his behalf). Film Freak was created by Doug Moench and Tom Mandrake, first appearing in Batman #395. (1986)
