Ted Sallis, was attempting to recreate the Super-Soldier Serum that created Captain America. However, he was betrayed by his lover, Ellen Brandt, and Sallis had to flee from A.I.M. agents, who saw their potential of such a formula for their own evil ends. He injects himself with the serum, but after crashing in a swamp and apparently drowning is transformed into a swamp creature through a combination of his formula and, as later explained, magical forces extant in the area. Sallis’ mind was apparently lost, although on rare occasions he could briefly return to consciousness within his monstrous form, and even to his human form such as when he fought Ben Grimm, who took the appropriation of his own nickname a little too personally.
Marvel Legends Man-Thing
Nice accurate sculpt
Man-Thing is a character I know little about and have very little connection to. I see that this figure will help complete the Fear Itself: Fearsome Four and if you look at his shoulder (rumor has-it) he has a peg to hold Howard the Duck. Over all it’s a nice looking figure with a nice sculpt.
