He got his powers from gamma radiation. Bruce Banner sought him out so that Creel could help him cure himself of the Hulk. However, Creel wanted to fight Hulk and forced him to transform. Hulk eventually defeated Creel and he was placed in the Cube along with other gamma-powered criminals including Bruce by S.H.I.E.L.D. He later broke out with Abomination. Leader had him absorb the properties of Thor's Mjolnir and attacked Thor and Hawkeye. However, because Thor can control Mjolnir he was defeated. He and Leader were then taken into S.H.I.E.L.D. custody again.


Absorbing Man is voiced by Rick D. Wasserman. Wasserman also voices Thor.

In the Comics

Carl Creel became the Absorbing Man when he drank a liquid that the Asgardian god Loki laced with rare Asgardian ingredients. Here, he is apparently just another gamma-based villain.
