History: (Spider-Man Magazine (I#11)) - The superhero Space Man was enemies with Space Surfer and Earthling Joe.

Comments: Created by Matt Mitchell.

Space 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 Space Man's case, he was created by then-8-year-old Matt Mitchell of Aurora, Colorado. As a fringe character, Space Man was not confirmed to exist on Earth-616 but there was also no evidence to say he did not exist on Earth-616 either...

Space Man's height & weight were impossible to approximate, as he was never seen next to any character whose height & weight had been officially determined. Additionally, he was only seen in a helmet so his hair color, if he even has hair, is unrevealed.

Space Man's origin was never shown but it seems likely that he would be an extraterrestrial of some sort, given the "Space" part of his name, his one giant eye and his enmity with a character called "Earthling Joe."

The issue of Spider-Man Magazine featuring Space Man was not actually numbered but recent trade paperbacks of Adventures of Spider-Man & Adventure of the X-Men that reprinted the comic strips from this issue of Spider-Man Magazine identified the issue as #11.
