Disney Comics Wiki

Mickey Mouse is a Disney comics character.

The Walt Disney Company's own commentary on Mickey is that he "is a clean-living, fun-loving, 'nice-guy.' He is a hard worker who puts his "all" into anything he attempts. Intelligent, quick-witted, and a true optimist. Mickey is contemporary at all times. He is the kind of guy who can make things happen! He's the best! He's everyone's favorite kind of guy." As the pre-eminent of the Fab 5, Mickey has played many roles, such as fireman, mystery-sleuth, clock-cleaner and genuine hero. His kidlove is Minnie Mouse whom he's been courting "on screen" since 1899. On screen his faithful companions consisted of his dog, Pluto, and his buddies Goofy and Donald Duck. In comics, he is usually accompanied by Horace Horsecollar, Goofy, Eega Beeva, and his tough pal, Butch. Mickey and his pals are often menaced by the nefarious villian Pete and his compatriots.

Like Donald, Mickey acted as a father-figure to his twin rambunctious nephews, Morty & Ferdie. Among his other relatives are his Aunt Agatha and his cousin Madeline Mouse. Mickey has tried his hand, at least twice, at the business of a superhero. Like Super Goof and Super Donald (a.k.a. Super Duck), Mickey had genuine superpowers. In a three-part tale called "The Red Wasp Mystery" (WDC&S #317 -319) a local human superhero called the "Red Wasp" mysteriously disappeared, so Mickey, determined to solve the mystery, donned one of the Wasp's spare costumes, jet pack and utility belt. Upon defeating two of his regular nemeses, Dangerous Dan McBoo & Idgit the Midgit, he located and rescued the real Wasp. More recently, in "Plastic Mickey" (Walt Disney's Comics and Stories 608) Mickey was exposed to an experimental formula which temporarily made his body elastic and malleable. Emulating a comicbook hero called "Plastic Sam" (a take on DC's "Plastic Man") by using these new found abilities he was able to defeat the villainous Red Bat and his criminal partner, the Rubberizer.
