Highly flammable bio-paraffin body (living wax), allowing him to light himself on fire. He can also fling bits of himself. Being set on fire, or separating pieces of his body doesn't seem to hurt him. His body also gives him superhuman strength, durability, and speed.

He has his skeleton and internal organs floating in his bio-paraffin body.

Other Info
Robert "Glob" Herman was one of the first students to enroll at the Xavier Institute after its status as a mutant school had become public knowledge. (To learn more about the school, click on its highlighted name above.)

Later, Herman joined the violent Omega Gang led by fellow student Kid Omega. Preferring Magneto's philosophies to Professor X's, the Omega Gang tried to take revenge on humanity for its supposed crimes against mutants. (To learn about the team and/or characters above, just click on their highlighted names.)

With the Omega Gang, Glob Herman attacked the humans whom they thought had murdered Jumbo Carnation, and later participated in the slaughter of a group of U-Men .

Later, when the Omega Gang started a riot at the Xavier Institute, Glob Herman had Redneck light him on fire as he ran after a bus, filled with human civilians. However, Herman's plan were put to a halt by the X-Men Beast, Cyclops and Xorn. These X-Men eventually covered Glob Herman in cement to put out the flames. (Click on the highlighted names to learn about the characters above. Note: Beware of the form-fitting/revealing outfit worn by Emma Frost on Cyclops' bio page. Also, the fifth picture posted is of Glob Herman lit on fire.)

For their crimes, the X-Men sentenced the Omega Gang to fulfill various humanitarian works and aid those in need after serving a small sentence in human prisons.

After the events of M-Day, Glob Herman was one of the mutants who did not lose his X-gene. (To learn about M-Day, click on the highlighted name above. Note: Beware of the revealing/form-fitting outfits worn by some on the M-Day page.)

After finishing his humanitarian work, Glob Herman returned to the X-mansion (now located in San Fransisco) and took part in the move to Utopia with the rest of the X-Men. (Click on the highlighted name above to learn about Utopia.)

Glob Herman appeared briefly in X-Men: The Last Stand. During the attack on Alcatraz, he was shot by a "cure dart" and changed from his "glob form" to a normal person. (The second picture posted above shows this.)


  1. He looks kind of gross. But I really like the idea of having them do humanitarian work to pay for their crimes- we should use that idea more often. =)

  2. How did this guy get his powers? Did he just inflate into this scary looking guy one day, was he an experiment, or did an accident (like what happened to the Fantastic Four) cause his transformation?
