Real Name: Unrevealed, possibly inapplicable
Identity/Class: Fringe character,
robot (see comments)
Group Membership: None
Known Relatives: None
Base of Operations: Unrevealed
First Appearance: Spider-Man Magazine I#6
Powers/Abilities: Machine Man's body was
composed of various pieces of domestic technology, each providing an
ability of sorts. For example, Machine Man's head was a television set,
which he could use to show disgusting video footage and pictures to
enemies. Machine Man's midsection was a refrigerator that he could fire
mushy foods such as applesauce and ice cream from.
Machine Man was also equipped with an eggbeater
weapon that he used as a blunt weapon.
History: (Spider-Man Magazine I#6) - Composed
of various domestic appliances, the robotic Machine Man became a
superhero, battling villains such as the Unplugger, Swordman, Dr.
Wirecutter and Storm Man.
Comments: Created by Adam Stoler.
Machine Man 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 the case of Machine Man, he was created by then-6-year-old Adam Stoler of Brookline, Massachusetts. As a fringe character, Machine Man was not confirmed to exist on Earth-616 but there is equally no evidence to support that he did not exist on Earth-616 either...
Machine Man's height and weight were impossible to approximate, as he was never seen next to a character whose height and weight were officially determined. Additionally, Machine Man was only seen in a non-colored image so his eye color was also impossible to determine.
Machine Man's origin was never given but it seems
pretty likely that he is a robot, given that it is mentioned that his
head was a television set and his body was a refrigerator. He appears
to be a robot composed of normal household appliances...
