Trivia (5)

Originally there were two Nuclear Men in Superman IV: The Quest for Peace (1987). Mark played the second Nuclear Man, while the original Nuclear Man was played by British actor Clive Mantle, who proved to be ineffective and was quickly destroyed by Superman (Christopher Reeve), with Mark being the improved version reforged from the remains of the first Nuclear Man. All of Mantle's footage and virtually all references to him were cut from the theatrical version of the film, leaving Mark as the only Nuclear Man. The original Nuclear Man was also infatuated with Lacey Warfield (Mariel Hemingway) and the second Nuclear Man remembered her, which is why he goes after her in the film's climax.
Family settled in Spring, Texas.
Learned to skydive at California City Parachute Club and made several dozen jumps.
Was a Chippendale's Dancer in Los Angeles.
Mark sustained a broken foot in one of the takes, during the moon fight climax in Superman IV.
