Sudd was a militant "moral guardian" and a parody villain in Marvel's Howard the Duck - he was an enforcer of the equally parody-centric villain group known as S.O.O.F.I..

Real Name: Sudd (presumably his last name)

Identity/Class: Human mutate

Occupation: Destroyer of Indecency; former dishwasher

Group Membership: S.O.O.F.I. (Save Our Offspring From Indecency)

Affiliations: Supreme SOOFI

Enemies: Howard the Duck, Beverly "Lee" Switzler (former employer)

Known Relatives: None

Aliases: The Scrubbing Bubble that walks like a Man

Base of Operations: Lower Manhattan, New York City

First Appearance: Howard the Duck I#20 (January, 1978)

Powers: Sudd possessed powerful cleansing abilities, enabling him to clean away all forms of dirt, grime, and odor. In addition, his corrosive and abrasive abilities enabled him to scrub away many forms of matter, such as wood, metal, and flesh. He was fanatically opposed to anything he perceived as indecent and would attempt to scrub away images, words, and people he perceived as such. He had the same physical properties of any similar cleansing product.

History: Sudd was a dishwasher for "Lee" Switzler. He became involved with the organization SOOFI, and decided to quit his job and devote his life to pursuing SOOFI's goals.

(Howard the Duck I#20) - On his last day of work, Sudd was training his replacement, Howard the Duck. However, he carelessly placed an industrial strength cleanser in the microwave. It exploded, and transformed him into a living cleansing product. His borderline-stable mind further addled by his transformation, Sudd went on a rampage, attacking and destroying anything which offended his sense of decency. Howard and Lee Switzler decided to stop his murderous onslaught. their first attempt to wash him away with water backfired, as his form was composed on a concentrate, which incorporated the water to become even larger. Next, however, they read the antidote to the cleanser (if swallowed), from the bottle. As Sudd attacked a group of people in a nearby alley, Howard doused him with a mixture of vinegar, lemon juice, milk, and egg whites. Sudd dissolved, leaving behind a sparkling clean sidewalk, emblazoned with his eagle tattoo.
