A month.

Every April, Dr. Ecchs goes off to his family reunion. And every April, he comes back crazy. The complete list of Doctor Ecchs' April insanities since the founding of Malefico are:

  • 2003 - Professor Ecchs: Led to a lawsuit from Marvel Comics
  • 2004 - Unknown.
  • 2005 - Ecchs-Death: The first listed case of Ecchs making evil trees. Ended in a lawsuit from Square-Enix.
  • 2006 - Der Baron Von Ecchs: The Doctor came back as a stereotypical German baron, complete with very poor German words thrown into his sentences, and an un-German color scheme. He attempted to built World War I-era robot soldiers to conquer the city.
  • 2007 - Doctor Idiot: Deciding that he was an idiot, since that was the only way he could keep getting beaten, the Doctor spent a week trying to sap the IQ of everyone in town while using bad grammar. Ultimately defeated with the dubious help of Overkill.
  • 2008 - The Perfect Superhuman: The Doctor decided that he needed to get rid of all of his flaws, and somehow did so. This lasted through the creation of the Ultiminions, but ultimately faltered and fell apart.
  • 2009 - Dictator Ecchs: Doctor Ecchs declares Grover Mall to be a sovereign nation, with himself as its supreme leader. Notably less dramatic than some years, possibly due to the influence of Ada Byron.
  • 2010 - To the best of anyone's knowledge, Ecchs did not go crazy in 2010.


A large part of Doctor Ecch's ongoing insanities can be traced back to Roman, of B Movie Comics, who sent in Der Baron Von Ecchs as part of a fancomic which I shameless incorporated into canon as a lead-in to my main storyline dealing with Timebender's family. The rest, as they say, is history.
