History: (Spider-Man Magazine (I#11)) - The

Comments: Created by Matt Carlin.
Hairball 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 Hairball's case, he was created by then-10-year-old Matt Carlin of New Castle, Pennsylvania. As a fringe character, Hairball was not confirmed to exist on Earth-616 but there is also no evidence to say he did not exist on Earth-616 either...
Hairball's height & weight were impossible to
approximate, as he was never seen next to any character whose height
& weight had been officially determined.
Hairball's origin was never shown I'm leaning towards him being an extraterrestrial, given his bizarre appearance.
The issue of Spider-Man Magazine featuring Hairball
was not numbered but recent reprints of the comic strips from this
issue in Adventures of Spider-Man & Adventures of the X-Men trade
paperbacks identified the issue as #11.
