Comments: Created by Emily Cuthbert.
Hair Man 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 Hair Man's case, he was created by then-12-year-old Emily Cuthbert of Dayton, New Jersey. As a fringe character, Hair Man was not confirmed to exist on Earth-616 but there was also no evidence to say he didn't exist on Earth-616 either...
Hair Man's height & weight were impossible to approximate, as he was never seen next to any character whose height & weight had been officially determined.
Hair Man's origin was never revealed but I'm leaning towards him being some sort of extraterrestrial, given the pink skin and green, two-clawed hands.
I love the idea that Emily Cuthbert chose to list
former "Create Your Own..." alums Soundman/Sound Man and Sunbeam as
enemies of Hair Man. Always nice to see other writers using existing
Profile by Proto-Man.
