History

The Shaggy Man was a large hirsute android that was built by Professor Andrew Zagarian, the man who created "plastalloy," a synthetic substance closely resembling human flesh. Shortly after it was created, the Shaggy Man escaped its creator and went on a full-blown rampage, eventually attracting the attention of the Justice League of America, who wound up leaving the creature to forever battle a duplicate of itself in a pit buried deep in the bowels of the Earth. (Justice League of America #45)

About a year later, the Shaggy Man was rescued from this fate by Green Lantern's nemesis Hector Hammond, who teleported one of the beasts directly aboard the Justice League's new satellite, hoping to eliminate the entire Justice League in one fell swoop. But in the end, Green Lantern put a rather decisive halt to this particular threat by using his Power Ring to shrink the Shaggy Man down into nothingness. (#104) But the sudden disappearance of the first Shaggy Man allowed the duplicate Shaggy Man to crawl out of the hole in which the two androids were left to eternally battle, in search of prey. The second beast dug his way out and wound up in the Soviet Union, where he was tricked aboard a spacecraft just before it lifted off for orbit. (#186)

The Shaggy Man's built-in instincts make him a relentless killing machine, incapable of speech or reason. The Shaggy Man doesn't need to eat, sleep or rest — his mind is permanently focused on destruction.
