History:

(Spidey Super Stories#43/4 (fb) - BTS) - Seeing flimsy kites in the air, the Human Kite lifted up on the wind to dominate the sky.

(Spidey Super Stories#43/4) - Fargo North and several kite-flying children had their paper kites ripped apart by the swooping Human Kite. Frustrated at the bullying, North quickly whipped up a kite with Spider-Man's logo to attract Spidey's attention and help against the bully. The Human Kite tore the Spidey kite apart just as the hero appeared and delivered a punch before swooping North and the children. Spider-Man splashed the Human Kite with water and he turned to attack, saying he was tired of playing. However, distracted by Spidey, the Human Kite crashed into a tree, damaging his kite's structure. North and Spidey helped him down while the children returned to kite flying.

The other kite flyers look like the Electric Company's Short Circus band members.

This Human Kite has no known Earth-616 counterpart and should definitely not be confused with DC's Kite Man.
