The Sinister Snowman was the disguise of Fabian Menkle.

Physical appearance

He looked like an ordinary snowman, but without a scarf, cap, gloves, broomstick, nor a carrot for nose. He had sharp teeth and claws.


He was pure evil, and very aggressive.

Powers and abilities

  • Shapeshifting: He could morph himself into a spider and a giant hand, and turn his snowball body into heads exactly like his.
  • Ice breath: With his frozen breath, he could trap everything and everyone in a block of ice. The Sinister Snowman's icy breath was created by using liquid nitrogen.
  • Blizzard manipulation: The Sinister Snowman was able to conjure a massive snow storm as a means of appearing and vanishing. This was done by using a combination of rockets and silver iodide.


Early life

The Sinister Snowman was supposedly the ghost of Vladimar Harstikor, a mean elderly man who watched with hatred as the city around him grew; he hated people, and wanted only to be left alone. It was then that a toy store was built right close to his house, which had a beautiful clock tower. It drove him into madness, to where the legend said he became pure hate, vanishing in a flurry of snow and bitterness, to form a snowman with a sinister and evil soul. It was then that he mysteriously vanished, and the giant clock tower stopped working.

Fabian Menkle unmasked.

20 years later, he returned to finish what he started. But this Sinister Snowman turned out to be a hoax, and revealed to be Fabian Menkle, who was robbing his uncle's toy store, trying to make him look crazy so he could shut it down, and get the money, blaming it on the legend of Vladimar Harsticore, who actually "vanished" to Miami Beach.
