Gibbon (Marvel)(01 - Marty Blank)
Real Name: Martin 'Marty' Blank
Search for 'Gibbon (Marvel)(01 - Marty Blank)' on Amazon


Powers:
Gibbon possesses heightened strength, speed and agility, an ape-like fighting style and a natural kinship with animals.

Since the Gibbon is a mutant he may not possess powers following the Decimation event.

Bio:
Seemingly born a mutant, The Gibbon later joins a circus where he does well as an acrobat. His powers are later enhanced by a potion given to him by Kraven the Hunter to "Unleash the Beast within". Martin Blank begins his career out as a friend of Spider-Man's. He even wants to be his partner, but Spider-Man laughs at him. Sick of being seen as a freak Martin can not take further ridicule and lashes out. He then catches the eye of Kraven the Hunter who enhances the Gibbon's powers with a herb broth, also giving him a great animal rage. After being defeated by Spider-Man, Martin wasn't seen for awhile.

Later, Gibbon seeks revenge on Spider-Man, trying to prove he is as good as him. He is caught in the middle of a fight with Spider-Man and the Beetle. Eventually Gibbon helps Spider-Man by punching out the Beetle. Gibbon later joins up with other "has-beens" the Kangaroo, Grizzly and The Spot to form the Legion Of Losers.

This team falls apart when Spider-Man carted the Spot and the Kangaroo to jail for bank robbery. He and the Grizzly would later attempt to go hero, helping Spider-Man thwart a bank robbery by the White Rabbit and eventually getting an action figure deal.

The Gibbon has been shown as retaining his physical mutation, but showed no sign of his former mutant abilities.
