The Impossible Man is a fictional character that appears in comic book published by Marvel Comics. The character first appeared in Fantastic Four #11 (Feb. 1963), and was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.
The Impossible Man has featured in other Marvel-endorsed products such as action figure, arcade and video game, animated television series, and merchandise such as trading card.
When the Impossible Man first appeared the character differed from previous guest stars in that he was not a villain. Written by Lee to be a prank and hedonist, the Impossible Man claimed to belong to the alien race of Poppupians from planet Poppup, who all share a collective consciousness and the ability to shapeshift. Seeking amusement, the character visits Earth, and after finding the superhero team the Fantastic Four, constantly harasses them until they decide to ignore him, forcing the Impossible Man to leave.
The character does not appear again until 1976. Acting as a deus ex machina in a storyline involving the cosmic entity and world-devourer Galactus, the Impossible Man convinces the character to consume his homeworld world Poppup instead of Earth. The Impossible Man then makes a humorous appearance at the offices of Marvel Comics, and causes havoc until Stan Lee promises to give him his own title.
