This is MartianFrog:
He claims to be a frog from Mars, but all he has to back up his claim is an undying love of vintage science fiction and a misplaced obsession with the American version of “Life on Mars”. Dino Drac’s Luxury Apartments are the only ones that could really accommodate a possibly extraterrestrial amphibian, and so he jumped at the chance to move in.
The main obstacle MartianFrog encountered was the fact that he needs a warm, moist environment to survive. To this end, he has a hot tub in every room of his house except the bathroom, since he doesn’t really need two hot tubs in there. Honestly, he’s only about a foot and a half tall, so he could probably just fill a bucket with lukewarm water, but MartianFrog will always choose needlessly complicated luxury if he’s able to.
MartianFrog’s fridge is stocked with mealworms, crickets, and for some reason, key lime yogurt. All of this takes up one shelf of a fridge that’s far too large for his kitchen. There’s hardly any room for the stove and microwave, not that he ever uses them anyway.
He also has a roommate/butler/guard/robot who does all the things a short bipedal amphibian just isn’t able to do, like reach the doorknob with any amount of success. While MartianFrog knows full well that the apartment is magical and he could have just said, hey, let’s make this to scale, he chose the option which allows him to have a robot. The robot is mute, but is usually the only one who MartianFrog ever talks to. He’s not antisocial, just very shy and awkward. Not a lot of people want to talk about “Life on Mars” and schlocky old science fiction. At least, until he summons up the courage to use the Internet. Even if is from Mars, he certainly didn’t come here out of any sense of bravery.
MartianFrog would like to consider himself a super villain, but other than the company he’d like to keep, he doesn’t really fit the profile. He still has a hand-drawn flier ready to post on the apartment’s bulletin board for his super villain club:
