Since his creation in 2001, Robert “Glob” Herman has become an unlikely fan-favorite member of the young mutants debuting throughout the 2000’s. Created as part of Grant Morrison’s time writing New X-Men (with art by Ethan Van Sciver), Glob even has the cinematic credit of a cameo in X-Men: The Last Stand to his name.
