Franklin Armstrong Schist

Search for 'Franklin Armstrong Schist' on Amazon

Bio:
Franklin Armstrong Schist was a greedy developer who decided that Citrusville, Florida was the perfect place for a new airport.

When the Man-Thing and the local Seminole tribe oppose the development, he enlists the help of Hargood Wickham, whose reputation has earned him the nickname Professor Slaughter. Man-Thing was set back by Wickham's devices, but eventually destroyed them. Schist also became a target of the Foolkiller.

When the airport construction was shut down by the 1970s Energy Crisis, Schist's real motivation for that choice was revealed, as the airport was a cover for finding the Fountain of Youth. When he arrives in La Hacienda, a secret town that remains eternally young from the fountain's waters, he ignores their admonishments not to drink form the Fountain, and transforms into a decrepit, but naturally immortal being like the town elders, who arrived first and did not realize that the water's youthful effect comes from bathing in it, not drinking it.

He is eventually cornered by Man-Thing, and in his weakened state, destroyed in his fear of Man-Thing's burning touch. His wife, Vivian, and daughter, Carolyn, vow to avenge his death by destroying the creature.

Notes:
Professionally, he goes by "F.A. Schist," and a letter to the editor complained that Gerber meant to say that all capitalists are fascists.
