I ain't just Crusher Creel, an ordinary con anymore! I'm the Absorbing Man... the most dangerous guy in the world!!
~ Absorbing Man

Carl "Crusher" Creel was a former heavy weight boxer turned criminal who was chosen by Loki to drink an Asgardian potion that gave him an uncanny power; he could now absorb any substance into his own body by touching it. Now as the Absorbing Man, he was sent to battle Thor, but was defeated. Since then he has battled Thor many times, as well as the Hulk and other superheroes. He also joined the Masters of Evil at one point.

Absorbing Man can transform his body into any substance he touches, including stone, metal, brick, concrete, earth, and even more unstable substances like water, light, and electricity. He also carries a ball-and-chain that was attached to him during the transformation which he uses as a weapon, that can also absorb the same substance as himself.

Trivia

  • He was heavily referenced by David Banner, the main villain of 2003 film Hulk due to share similar powers.
