Absorbing man

This villain isn't the most known one but it might ring a bell with you guys since he appeared on agents of SHIELD. Absorbing man! the name says it all, here's a little bit more about him.

In the comics this evil villain is created by Loki, who is off course searching for yet an other way to defeat his brother. Carl 'Crusher' Creel is an inmate with the reputation of having a temper. Loki gave him the power to absorb everything he touched. When he touched iron for instance his whole body would be made out of iron.
Soon after he got his powers he broke out of prison to fight Thor (as Loki intended). During the fight he kind off overdid it since he tried to absorb the power of the whole earth which caused him to explode.
Lucky for him and thanks to his new powers he wasn't completely defeated. Loki picked up the pieces of Carl and fixed him up. Since the first plan didn't quit worked out Loki now tried to overthrow Odin the Allfather. Odin off course defeated the Absorbing man and than banished him in outer space.

Carl appears many times in the Thor comic books but you can also find him facing off against Hulk, Spiderman and the Avengers. He even once absorbed the shield of Captain America.
