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...
