Comments: Created by Gunnar Pohlman.
Dr. Dino was a product of the 1994 Spider-Man Magazine's "Create Your Own Super Hero or Super-Villain" section that ran in most early issues of the Magazine. In Dr. Dino's case, he was created by then-10-year-old Gunnar Pohlman of Cincinnatti, Ohio. As a fringe character, Dr. Dino was not confirmed to exist on Earth-616 but there is no evidence to say he didn't exist on Earth-616 either...
Dr. Dino's height and weight were impossible to approximate, as he was never seen next to any character whose height and weight had been officially determined.
Dr. Dino's origin was never given so it was unclear
whether he was some sort of mutated dinosaur that was given human-level
intelligence and superhuman powers or if he was perhaps a human mutated
into dinosaur form.
