Rat-Man, the character of Leo Ortolani

The real name of Rat-Man è Deboroh The Rock, often referred to as hunchbacked dwarf, due to his short stature and not very pretty appearance. His disguise is that of a mouse and this leads him to hate cats.

It poses to be a superhero, despite having no super power. On the contrary, he appears devoid of intelligence, physical strength and common sense, even if in certain situations he is able to perform heroic gestures.

Rat-Man has a good soul which leads him to want to help others, even if very often he ends up combining damage and worsening situations.
