Five years after the events of the original film, The Toxic Avenger (Ron Fazio) is lured to Tokyo, Japan by the evil corporation Apocalypse Inc. So while the Toxic Avenger is fighting crime in Tokyo, Apocalypse Inc. spread evil in Tromaville and it is up to the famous hideously deformed superhero of superhuman size and strength to stop the abominable Apocalypse Inc. from attacking both Tokyo and Tromaville.

The ‚Unrated Director’s cut‘ version released on DVD by Troma Entertainment is actually missing almost all scenes of gore. The full version with an extra 10 minutes of gore is currently only available in the ‚Tox Box‘ DVD set which is now out of print.

The Japanese and German releases are the full uncut version.

The 2008 ‚Complete Toxic Avenger‘ 7-disc DVD set includes the uncut version and is the same disc found in the ‚Tox Box‘. However, there are reports of the heavily cut version occasionally being included in the ‚Complete Toxic Avenger‘. This may be because nowhere on the disc art or DVD do the words ‚Director’s Cut‘ appear. The unedited „Director’s Cut“ can be told apart from the edited version by checking the feature running time, or by listening to the audio commentary by director Lloyd Kaufman. The commentary track is different for both versions, and the director mentions which cut is shown.
