293 – Absorbing Man

Crusher Creel, aka The Absorbing Man, aka not Nick Nolte. Back in Junior High I was buying Marvel Universe trading cards, and I remember my friends and I seeing the Absorbing Man card (If I remember correctly, done by Art Adams). They had power stats and things on the back of the cards, including one for mental abilities. His was “mentally deficient”, a phrase that burrowed itself into my brain, where it still resides to this day.
