High school hooligans thought it would be hilarious to lure hulking simpleton Maxwell Beecher to Make-Out Valley with promises of acceptance and debauchery.  No one knew that M-OV, being far off the beaten path, was also an illicit toxic dumping ground.

Shenanigans of the fatal kind ensued, culminating in Max dissolving in sludge and his classmates vowing silence...

...and silent they were, until their screams heralded Max's return from the grave.  Many cruel jocks, coaches, and snobs got their chemical-drenched comeuppance.

Turns out that it wasn't Max under the fume hood, though, but his brainy, comely, and all around cranky fraternal twin sister, Maxine.  Quite the reveal!

Using her mastery of chemistry (particularly of the "meltin' kind") and handiness with an axe, Maxine still targets bullies and nogoodniks, but also shady industrialists and the corrupt officials in their pockets.  She's also the most eco-friendly of the masked slashers, and sometimes finds herself on the side of granola-type protesters (until killing them out of annoyance, that is).
