a super hero using his energy pack to fly, the armored Bullet Man
became the enemy of criminals Axe Guy, Doctor Wacko and the Giant.
Comments: Created by Jacob Platt and Nick Franklin.
Bullet Man was a product of the 1994 Spider-Man Magazine's Create Your Own Super Hero or Super-Villain section that ran in each issue of the magazine. He was created by the (then) 9-year old Jacob Platt and 10-year old Nick Franklin, both of whom hailed from Maplewood, New Jersey. As such, there is no evidence to support whether the characters mentioned in this profile are native to reality-616 or some other reality...however, there is also no evidence to say the do not exist in reality-616 either...
Bullet Man's origin was not revealed so it was never
stated if his superhuman strength came from inherent mutant or Inhuman
powers or a mutation. Given that his flight powers came from the energy
pack he wore on his back, it seems likely that Bullet Man's strength
came from the armored suit he wore, not unlike how Iron Man's armor
gives him superhuman strength.
Bullet Man's height, weight, eyes and hair color were impossible to determine, as he was never seen next to a character whose height and weight had been officially determined and in his only appearance, he was not seen outside of his armor, preventing his eyes and hair from being seen.
