'''Man-Thing''' is the name of a MarvelComics character. He first appeared in ''"Savage Tales''" #1 (May, 1971). The character was co-created by author Roy Thomas and his editor StanLee. His debut story was scripted by Gerry Conway and drawn by Gray Morrow. Man-Thing is not to be confused with DC's ''Comicbook/SwampThing'', which premiered within a month of Man-Thing. The two characters have many parallels, including their backstories (both partially written by LenWein), swampy homes, and being re-imagined by notable comic writers. Both are also similar to an older horror character, TheHeap.

Savage Tales was a one-shot publication, though it would be revived as a regular series in 1973. In the meantime Man-Thing gained a regular series in the {{horror}} anthology 'Adventure Into Fear'. He became an unlikely hit for writer SteveGerber, who pushed genre boundaries with the character, providing inspiration for later writers like NeilGaiman.

* HollywoodAcid: Man-Thing is scary enough for the unwary as a shambling plant monster, but the fact that he secrets a deadly corrosive when he encounters fear scares the hell out of people who know about him too.
