Sandman is a supervillain (and occasional superhero) in the Marvel Universe and an enemy of Spider-Man.


After escaping from prison, criminal Flint Marko came into contact with sand that was irradiated by nuclear testing.  Flint soon discovered that he could turn his body to sand that could change shape at will, which he used as the criminal Sandman.



Flint Marko (born William Baker) was born to Floyd Baker and his wife (name unknown), but was abandoned by his father when he was still a baby.  William learned to steal at a young age due to living in poverty and though he loved to go to the beach to build sand castles, he rarely did due to his mother's alcoholism.  One day, he got to build an impressive sand castle but when he watched it wash away with the tide, something stuck with him that made him determined to build something that would last.
