Toxic avenger copied this movie?

I swear, look at the storyline of this movie and the makeup of the monster, that The Toxic Avenger is a copy (read:rip-off) of this movie! Just look at the similarities:

Hero gets picked on - check

Hero turns into monster with bad makeup - check

Violence is cartoony - check

Plenty of Nudity - check

Hero revenges himself on the bad guys - check

The same bizarre tone of this flick was retained in TTA - which is why it's regarded as a camp classic! Anyone seen both the movies? I'd like to know!


I saw part of this movie on Crunchyroll years ago. It seemed to have a more serious tone than Toxic Avenger from what I saw.
