History: (Spider-Man Magazine (I#12)) - Flame
Mammoth became a supervillain, battling foes such as White Canyon and
Comments: Created by Justin Maust.
Flame Mammoth was a 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 Flame Mammoth's case, he was created by then-8-year-old Justin Maust of Fredericksburg, Virginia. As a fringe character, Flame Mammoth was not confirmed to exist on Earth-616 but there is equally no evidence to say he did not exist on Earth-616...
Flame Mammoth's height & weight were impossible
to approximate, as he was never seen next to any character whose height
& weight had been officially determined.
Flame Mammoth's origin was never shown but I'm
leaning towards him being either some sort of robot or perhaps a human
mutated into elephant-like form.
The issue of Spider-Man Magazine featuring Flame
Mammoth was not numbered but recent reprints of the issue's comic
strips in Adventures of Spider-Man & Adventures of the X-Men trade
paperbacks identified the issue as #12.
I'd personally love to see a team-up involving Flame Mammoth, Mammomax and Man-Elephant...
Also, while no direct connection exists, it seems
quite likely that Flame Mammoth's codename came from one of the
Maverick robots from the original Mega Man X video game that came out
two years prior to this issue of Spider-Man Magazine. However, despite
the name, Marvel's Flame Mammoth doesn't really look much like the one
in Mega Man X.
