The Mole Man is one of the Fantastic Four's most enduring villains, appearing along with them in the first issue of their comic. He commands an army of underground monsters and outcasts, some smaller than human, others taller than buildings. Mole Man usually attacks the surface world in retaliation for real or perceived slights against him and his people.
For this figure, I used the Dr. Octopus from the Sinister 6 box set. The hands were replaced with Sub-Mariner's. I reshaped the hair to more accurately match his appearance in the comics. The googles were fashioned out of Doc Ock's glasses. The cape was made from vinyl. I also added vinyl to his shins to make the pants longer. I added some paint to the costume to make it appear dirtier (I can't imagine the sanitary conditions being very good in his underground lair!). Finally, his stick/staff was made from a disposable chop stick, first carved to make it 'grainier', then painted black and dry-brushed brown. BTW, I made this one years ago, before the Hasbro ML came out. I intended to buy it, but didn't. Although the figure's sculpt looks okay, it is dreadfully out of scale with the other ML figures. So, mine stays on the shelf! Photos by Nara and myself. Feel free to comment. Make Mine Marvel!
