During its celebrated publication run, Marvel Team-Up featured Spider-Man teaming up with a variety of A-List heroes, such as Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Thor and Daredevil. However, many of the issues presented team-ups with lesser-known heroes, as well as characters of a bizarre nature, including Werewolf by Night, Nighthawk, Paladin, King Kull, Dominic Fortune and the “Not Ready for Prime Time Players” (cast members from NBC’s Saturday Night Live). One of the strangest denizens of the Marvel Universe to join Spidey in his continuity-free adventures was none other than Man-Thing! This creature from the swamps of the Florida Everglades used to be a man, but an experimental serum meant to create the next Captain America (i.e. super soldier formula) transformed him into a hulking pile of walking muck without thoughts or emotions. He now and forever roams the swamps, curious of humans he encounters, but hyper-sensitive to their sadness, anger and especially their fear. And many an unfortunate soul has discovered that whatever knows fear BURNS at the Man-Thing’s touch.
