Stan Lee's Superhumans
Rubber Band Man
Full Name: Garry Turner
Hometown: London, England
Garry Turner discovered his extraordinary ability to stretch his skin when he was just 4 years old. His uncle was so impressed that he would show him off to his friends, earning Garry the title "Rubber Band Man."
In Victorian times he would have been put in a freak show but today we have a much better understanding of why people like Garry are different.
Garry has a rare genetic mutation known as Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, which alters the way collagen is structured in his body. This can affect people in many different ways, but in Garry, it has given him the stretchiest skin on the planet.
If you think that people with superhuman abilities are only found in comic books or in Hollywood movies--think again.
