Glob Herman is an incredibly strange Mutant from the Marvel Universe. His body is made out of a living wax called bio-paraffin.

I believe that he is one of the strangest characters in the Marvel Universe, and I would love to learn more about his backstory.  I would love to hear your thoughts and suggestions of new characters to write about in the comments’ section below.
