Name: Bikeman! Real name: Clark Kent Wah, the man on the bike whose handlebars support either two rattan baskets containing freshly-sliced pig, or a brace of gas cylinders. Motto: 'Death to the pedestrian!' Nationality: Hong Kong, lately of China. Distinguishing marks: Fag in corner of mouth, soiled white vest and dirty grey shorts, sinews like inner tubes. Brief history: Bikeman! has always been around but leapt to prominence with the arrival of traffic lights and zebra crossings - pathetic rules that apply to the rest of the world but not him. Just as Joe Earthling steps out to cross the road, along comes Bikeman!, either violently ringing his bell or bellowing in his own Superlanguage. He sails blithely through lights, demolishing puny pedestrians. After all, he decides what constitutes the 'right' or 'wrong' side of the street. He is the law of the road. Closely related to (1): Rubbishwoman! His wife is the old lady who pushes a massive trolley load of lap sap the wrong way down a crowded road. Like an ant, she is able to shift a weight that is massively disproportionate to her size. Closely related to (2): The pizza delivery boy. Strengths: His trusty steed is a product of a mainland bicycle factory but since modified in a local bikecave. Built for hard work with twin titanium-coated crossbars, this two-wheeled equivalent of the Sherman tank may even have seen service on the Long March. Not a lot of people know a distant relative of his steed travelled to Hollywood and won a starring role in Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid's memorable 'raindrops keep falling on my head' sequence. Bikeman! is the only thing in Hong Kong that can derail a tram, and legend has it he was the only thing that moved on the streets during the '67 riots. Weaknesses: Tends to crash and burn when the gas cylinders come into contact with highly inflammable pedestrians. Fans say: 'Commissioner Gordon here. Get me Bikeman! Looks like we've got a pedestrian jam outside Sogo.' Critics say: 'I'll get you, Bikeman!, if it's the last thing I ... aaaaaaargh!' He says (1): 'Come on, jaywalker, make my day.' He says (2): 'Why did the chicken cross the road? Don't know and don't care, 'cause he never made it.' Cultural legacy: A nation of over- and under-pass users.
