History

Billy Thompson, alias Billy the Fish, is a successful goalkeeper for Fulchester Rovers despite having been born half man, half fish. How he has managed this is unclear; he appears to somehow float about five feet off the ground and to move himself around with his fins and tail, something nobody has ever questioned for some reason. The original Billy was killed by a booby-trapped ball in an FA Cup final, but was replaced by his son, also called Billy, who is identical to his late father.

Powers and abilities

Powers

Possibly levitation?

Abilities

Excellent goalkeeper.

Notes

Billy the Fish is an obvious (if surreal) spoof of long-running football strip Roy of the Rovers, even down to the lead character being eventually replaced by his own son.
