The Man-Thing (Dr. Theodore “Ted” Sallis) is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by writers Stan Lee, Roy Thomas, and Gerry Conway and artist Gray Morrow, the character first appeared in Savage Tales #1 (May 1971), and went on to be featured in various titles and in his own series, including Adventure into Fear, which introduced the character Howard the Duck.

Steve Gerber’s 39-issue run on the series is considered to be a cult classic.

Man-Thing is a large, slow-moving, empathic, humanoid swamp monster living in the Florida Everglades near a Seminole reservation and the fictitious town of Citrusville in Cypress County, Florida. Conan Stevens portrayed the character in the 2005 film Man-Thing.

Young biochemist Dr. Theodore “Ted” Sallis, a native of Omaha, Nebraska, is working in the Everglades as part of Dr. Wilma Calvin’s Project: Gladiator team, which includes Dr. Barbara Morse and her fiancé Dr. Paul Allen. A Dr. Wendell is later cited as being on the staff after Dr. Calvin is shot. The group is attempting to recreate the super-soldier serum that had created Captain America. Web of Spider-Man (vol. 2) #6 revealed that Sallis at one point treated and worked alongside Dr. Curt Connors shortly after Connors’ arm was amputated, driving the research that would eventually transform Connors into the Lizard.
