He could very well be the most dangerous being in the universe if he wasn’t a walking cartoon character. Introduced in Fantastic Four #11, the being that would become known as Impossible Man (or Impy) comes from the Planet Poppup, a hostile planet where his race evolved to be able to transform into anything. Having a collective memory and growing bored of their lives, they sent one of their members to explore the universe. He would eventually arrive on Earth, where he encountered the F4 and became a nuisance to the people of New York until they began ignoring him, so he left the planet in a huff.

He would stay away from Earth for years before being contacted by the F4 to help them save Counter-Earth. He offered up his home planet and when Galactus consumed it, Galactus seemed to die. He moved in with the F4 but he would eventually leave to travel to Hollywood so a studio would make a movie of him. Eventually Impy would leave Earth and growing lonely would create a family for himself. He would soon leave them and continue to plague other heroes as well as the F4, like when he was running away from Xenmu and fused Hulk and Red Hulk together to form Compound Hulk.

Impy is a comedy character, being more of a plague to other heroes than a menace. He would receive a figure as a pack-in figure with Human Torch as part of the Fantastic Four Classics line.

  • Background:
    • Impy’s design is based on the little green man aliens that became famous during the sixties. Whenever he transforms, he keeps the colors.
  • Why do you need it for your collection?
    • This is a character you may want to get primarily for your F4 allies but can be used for other ally collections like X-men, Hulk, Spider-man, Cosmic etc.
  • Does it need a remake?
    • Yes. The one we got is more of a statue than an actual figure barely moving at the hips and shoulder.
