Day 13: X-Man-Thing

Man-Thing has found an application into Xavier's academy and may have checked yes for mutant.

Last day of Marvel week! I wanted to get a little more creative with this one. It's just my take on what Man-Thing would wear if part of the X-Men. Had to keep his hands free for melting the bad guys. Enjoy!

Day 12: Ant-Man-Thing

Ant-Man-Thing. There is no feat small enough for Man-Thing.

Marvel Week is almost over, one more to go!

"Wait, you can control bugs? Okay, you're on the team. I just need you to fix a small infestation problem at my house first." - Nick Fury

Day 11: Iron Man-Thing

Man-Thing is a little frustrated with the new suit Tony Stark gave him. Tony promised to give him a few lessons but instead just decided to get drunk and fight War Machine in his house. He left instructions, but Man-Thing has a little bit of a hard time reading.

Day 10: Spider-Man-Thing

My Man-Thing sense is tingling!

A man named Ted was working in the 'glades. He drank some chemicals and then turned into a hunk of vegetable mass that kicks butt and strikes fear in the hearts of all evil. He was then bitten by a radioactive spider in the swamp and made a red and blue costume to swing around in the trees, what?

"This was my original idea for Man-Thing." - Stan Lee

Day 9: Man-THING

It's clobberin' time. The only reason Man-Thing wanted to be Thing is because of the blue undies. Ben can't rock 'em like Man-Thing can.

BY THE WAY, it's Marvel week. I'll be doing four more Marvel characters by the end of Friday.

Here's an old drawing I did of The Thing:

Day 8: Anchorman-Thing

I don't know how to put this but he's kind of a big deal. Man-Thing is taking over your hearts, and now your news stations. Even though he technically can't speak, he's going to deliver the news whether you like it or not. (The 4's in the background are for the channel 4 news, not Fantastic Four!)

Stay classy followers.

Day 7: Hang Man-Thing

Hey guys. I've been very sick for the past two days so I haven't done much at all. Some kind of fever/flu thing. My brother came up with a Man-Thing that wouldn't take up too much time. I actually really like how it came out anyway.

Day 6: Chris Neseman-Thing

Most of you reading this probably know who Chris Neseman is. In case you don't, I'll treat you to some information.

Chris is one of four members of the 11 O'Clock Comics Podcast. I stumbled upon this podcast through my Zune, and have been listening since November-ish. After a drink roll call, you can expect hours of some awesome comics discussion. Since today is Wednesday, and they record on Wednesdays, I decided to do this as a tribute. Sorry for the other 3 members who don't have the word man in their names.

Tune in on the website, subscribe to the podcast on iTunes or Zune, and check out the forum! You can expect a new episode every Thursday and listen to Chris speak, well, that is if he doesn't fall asleep.

"Awesome!" - Vince B.

Day 5: Randy "The Macho Man-Thing" Savage

OOOOOhhhhh YEEEEEE-AH! Macho Madness is here and Man-Thing is along for the ride.
Here's one of my favorite wrestling promos of all time: Macho Man Promo.

The last man (thing) on Earth is here and he's ready to get this planet repopulated.

Man-Thing by Xurxo G. Penalta

As you may know, the MTAD (short awesome slang for Man-Thing A Day) project is only going on during the weekdays. Therefore, for all four of my followers who are fiending over the next MTAD, I'll be showcasing other renditions of Man-Thing that I enjoy.

First up, Xurxo Penalta. Xurxo is a Galego (someone from Galicia, a part of Spain that is close to Portugal) that draws some amazingly detailed pieces. He happened to draw the portrait of Man-Thing featured in today's post. You can check out more of his art at

Xurxo and I are also both members of the 11 o'clock comics forum. It's a great community with an even better podcast!

Don't be afraid to follow me on Twitter. You know what happens when Man-Thing senses fear! (You get burned)

Day 3: Dr. Man-Thing-Hattan

If there is any other person that feels as out of touch with humanity as Man-Thing, it's probably Dr. Manhattan. Man-Thing has been wondering why he hasn't received as much attention, and he may have found it. He's not blue! Man-Thing has walked out of the Intrinsic Field Subtractor with all of the same abilities, yet, something is off. He seems to be a little less "equipped" than his Watchmen counterpart. Can Man-Thing catch a break?

"I would love this if I could." - Dr. Manhattan

Day 2: Batman-Thing

The dark knight is in style these days, and Man-Thing is no exception. Get ready for Gotham City's newest hero.

"He's so good, I might retire!" - Bruce Wayne

Day 1: Man-Thing

Today is the first day of "Man-Thing A Day". Man-Thing has been going through what you may call an identity crisis, with Swamp Thing being around, and he's invited everyone to see what images work best for him.

Check this site every weekday to see what character Man-Thing has become.
