Real Name: Unrevealed
Occupation: Magazine seller / fundraiser
Group Membership: Presumably International Society for Krishna Consciousness (Hare Krishans)
Enemies: None (though airport commuters probably aren't too fond of him accosting them)
Known Relatives: None
Base of Operations: Unrevealed
First Appearance: Crazy Magazine#71 (February, 1981)
Powers/Abilities: Krishnaman was skilled at ambushing airport passengers and politely but pushily trying to sell them magazines.
History: (Crazy Magazine#71) - Krishnaman patrolled airports with a smile on his lips and a glaze in his eyes, accosting passengers to try and sell Godhead magazines to support his religion's drug rehabilitiation program for elderly runaways. Utterly without mercy, he didn't balk at doing so even when his targets were late for their planes.
Comments: Created by Paul Kirchner.
Krishnaman was one of several heroes to appear in a four page feature in Crazy#71, titled "Marvel Heroes Who Didn't Quite Make It." A follow-up feature in Crazy#78 introduced several more of these guys. It's almost certainly a sign of my increasing insanity, but I'd personally love to see them all get introduced into the Marvel universe proper, possibly taking on the heroes who "didn't make the cut" from Marvel Year in Review '93, the Hostess villains, Crazy and Not Brand Ecch's regular characters (Obnoxio, Forbush Man, Behemoth Jack, Teen Hulk, Aunty Nuke, etc.), and all the other "fringeworthy" characters (such as Cougar or Puzzle Man). It's not like some of them haven't already made it into 616 (Phone Ranger, Lectronn, etc), and these guys are no more bizarre than many of the others who preceded them into 616 canon.
