Comments: Created by Paul Kirchner.

Pollyanna 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.

Pollyanna is presumably based on Pollyanna Whittier, the star of Eleanor H. Porter's 1913 novel Pollyanna, a character so able to find the positive side of any situation, no matter how terrible, that her name entered the dictionary as a term for some excessively and illogically optimistic.
