Characterization [edit | edit source]
Jeremy's band-mate and friend, "Super Hans" likes to think of himself as being superior to others and is an untrustworthy shyster and fantasist. He regularly uses recreational drugs, and experiences a crack cocaine addiction in the second series, later referenced again in the final episode of the third series and in the seventh series.
His contentious opinions often contradict Jeremy's own ideas. He works in a recording studio in the first series. At the end of series 5 he joins a religious cult loosely based on Scientology. During the finale of series 6 we discover that he is father to seven-year-old twins (fünf plus zwei). The existence of the twins was dubious until series 9 episode 2 when they appear at Hans' wedding. Hans was inspired by the character Danny from the film Withnail and I.
Character History[edit | edit source]
Super Hans is Jeremy's band-mate and friend. Super Hans finds Mark quite peculiar and usually refers to him with obscure nicknames such as, "Professor Yaffle", "The Abdominiser" and "Captain Haddock", however he also asks Mark to be the best man at his wedding, due to the fact his fiancée Molly dislikes Jeremy. He had a strained relationship with his father who once "locked him in the airing cupboard to monitor the home brew". This could indicate that he may have been abused as a child.
Super Hans has had various different jobs during the eighth series, including but not limited to; Recording studio receptionist, Rig worker, removal man (or man with van) and bathrooms fixtures, and fittings salesman. His final scene shows Hans split from his wife Molly, as is leaving London to set up a moped rental service in Macedonia.
