First appearance The H-Man

The H-Man (液体人間,   Ekitai Ningen, lit. Liquid Human) is a radioactive liquid kaijin created by Toho that first appeared in the 1958 tokusatsu kaiju film, The H-Man.

Name

In Japanese, this kaijin's name is Ekitai Ningen (液体人間), which translates to Liquid Human or Liquid Man. In international releases, it is given the English name H-Man, which comes from the abbreviation for the element hydrogen and is likely meant to emulate the term "H-bomb."

Origins

The H-Man is a deadly liquid organism created when the crew of the ship Ryujin Maru II were directly exposed to radiation from a hydrogen bomb detonation. This radiation converted the crewmembers' cells into a new type of organism capable of changing form and disintegrating any other life with which it comes into contact.
