3-D Man (Charles & Hal Chandler) is a fictional Marvel Comics superhero. Although his adventures take place in the 1950s, the character was created by Roy Thomas in the 1970s in the anthology series Marvel Premiere. The character was writer Thomas's homage to the Joe Simon and Jack Kirby character Captain 3-D , and was intended by Thomas as a commentary on contemporary societal themes using 1950s analogue.
Brothers Chuck and Hal Chandler were born in Los Angeles, California. As a test pilot for NASA in 1958, He battled more Skrull infiltrators, and then battled the Cold Warrior.
On at least one occasion, Hal's mind occupied the body of the 3-D Man, and there is evidence that 3-D Man's mind is actually a combination of Hal's and Chuck's, with Chuck's psyche usually dominant.
At some point after his 1950s adventures Hal Chandler decided to stop functioning as 3-D Man and left his brother floating around in another dimension. Hal married Peggy Clark, and they had two children, Chuck Chandler II and Hal Chandler, Jr. Hal later encountered a down-on-his-luck Bruce Banner and, afraid that the Hulk might show up, used the glasses to summon 3-D Man once more. After this encounter, 3-D Man returned into his brother's glasses, determined never to return. However, alongside many other costumed heroes, he was summoned briefly by the Grandmaster.
