Here's the original Cheesecake Eater Lad post...

And I did a little more searching on Google and I think this was the guy who
created Cheesecake Eater Lad: Matthew Jotham Millheiser.

As Cheesecake-Eater Lad, I received my powers one night when I was working
in my lab on a solvent that develops limited super-powers such as
super-plotz, super-runs, and my patented super-saturated-fat particle beam.
Unfortunately, my wife was at the same time baking a lovely cheesecake for
the Winchesters.  Our recipes got mixed up, and as I tried a slice A Hero
Was Born (TM). 

My powers are primarily bodily function related, but they are potent.

"And such it is as this, while the Dark Flan lies pummeled at my feet, have
the Gods cursed me, Condolia Boonspackle, life known only to me
as...Cheesecake-Eater Lad!"
                                                  -- C-ELad #3, 1962

P.S.: Power limitation: I need a slice every fifteen minutes or my body goes
to pot. 


I'd go with this guy being the Pre-Cry.Sig C-ELad and the one we know and
love as the Post-Cry.Sig C-ELad.  I don't think there's really any point in
trying to incorporate their origins.  Maybe C-ELad has vague Pre-Cry.Sig
memories, but I think he should be a separate character from this guy.
Maybe there's an alternate universe where Cry.Sig didn't happen where this
guy still lives.  But it's up to you Tom.

As for Cheesecake Eater Lad's powers, well he's called Cheesecake Eater Lad
and not Cheesecake Maker Lad for a reason.  I do think C-ELad's primary
power should be being able to eat any kind of cheesecake (even if it's
radioactive, full of razor blades, made of diamond, you name it).  I've
certainly read stories where he was using wrist bands to make cheesecake.  I
suppose he doesn't need wrist bands, but he has them...
