History[edit | edit source]

The Human Vapor[edit | edit source]

Mizuno was a former test pilot but retired after he was mysteriously infected and confined to a sanitorium for an extended period of time as a result. He later became a librarian until a man by the name of Dr. Sano offered Mizuno to become a "test subject" for scientist's projects. However, the tests backfired and Mizuno became an indestructible vapor man. He then began a life of crime in an attempt to support his girlfriend.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

The Human Vapor is able to convert his entire body to a gaseous state at will. When in this form, he can wrap himself around people's heads, causing them to die of asphyxiation. He is also able to disappear into thin air.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Ultraman Gaia monster Wolf Gas is a partial homage to The Human Vapor, combining that character's gaseous transforming abilities with a more obvious werewolf motif [3]
