Eons ago, a godlike being has constructed the Fallen Stars from the thoughts of his own mind, who also created a woman, Cleito to represent the nature of reality on Earth.

But over period of time this duty however was being neglected by their descendants till it was completely discarded by the last one of the lineage, biochemistry professor Dr. Theodore Sallis at Empire State University. Very introvert, yet very bright, Sallis was recruited by the army for "Project Sulfur" where he developed "Serum SO-2" as a way to survive bio-chemical warfare and even worked with Dr. Curt Conners.

But the project was later abandoned for its effect of monstrous appearance on people. After he got married to one of his students Ellen Brandt, S.H.I.E.L.D. hired him to re-produce the Super Soldier Serum that created Captain America. He developed a version derived from his Serum SO-2.

Due to AIM’s untimely interference, he ran and took the serum but ended up on swamp, where he was transformed by mystical forces mixed with hazardous biochemicals into a dreadful creature who goes by the name Man-Thing and burns people having fear in his their mind within touch. He met Doctor Strange, Hulk, Ka-Zar, The Punisher and Thor, as well as served The Thunderbolts for a brief period. With Ghost Rider, Morbius and Werewolf by Night, he also serves in Legion of Monsters.
