Comments: Created by Sean Williams.
Plant Man was created by the (then) 8-year old Sean Williams of East Brunswick, New Jersey as part of the 1994 Spider-Man Magazine's Create Your Own Super Hero or Super-Villain section that ran in each issue.
Plant Man's origin was never revealed so it was
unclear if his powers were the result of being born a mutant or
Inhuman, or if he was mutated or somehow used technology to simulate
his powers. In addition, Doctor Weed, Fire Bug and Professor Pollution
were not seen at all.
