History: (Spider-Man Magazine (I#13)) - The heroic Astro Flair was enemies with Professor Nogood and Doctor Octopus, as well as fellow heroes, the X-Men.

Comments: Created by Mike Patch.

Astro Flair was the product of the 1994 Spider-Man Magazine's "Create Your Own Super Hero or Super-Villain" section that ran in most earlier issues of the Magazine. In Astro Flair's case, he was created by then-12-year-old Mike Patch of Norfolk, Nebraska. As a fringe character, Astro Flair was not confirmed to exist on Earth-616 but there was also no evidence to say he did not exist on Earth-616...

Astro Flair's height & weight were impossible to approximate, as he was never seen next to any character whose height & weight were officially determined. In addition, Astro Flair's eye & hair color was also impossible to determine, as he was never seen outside of his costume.

Astro Flair's origin was never shown but I'm leaning towards him being a mutant, given his enmity towards the X-Men.

The issue of Spider-Man Magazine featuring Astro Flair was not numbered but recent reprints of the comic strips inside in Adventures of Spider-Man & Adventures of the X-Men trade paperbacks identified the issue as #13.
