Sandman Weaknesses by PokeSEGA64
    -Not the sharpest tool in the shed.
        -Sand form can be hurt if turned into mud.
        -Mud form also greatly decreases malleability.
        -Being overwhelmed with water will deconstruct his form.
    -Extreme heat.
        -High enough temperatures will turn him into glass.
        +In his defense, he has fought the likes of the Human Torch before.
    -While sand has not been directly manipulated against his will, it has been implied when exploiting specific tactics.
        -See "Pink Hippo app."
    -Seems to have more difficulty regenerating from poison attacks, particularly acid.
    -'Queen Bee' Particle.
        -There is a single grain of sand within Sandman that contains Sandman's brain waves.
        -Controls all other sand particles that are a part of him.
        -Should it be compromised, Sandman will no longer be able to retain his form.

    "I'm not a bad person. Just had bad luck."
     A sandstorm brews over the battlefield...
    (Yes, this bio was pretty short, but for a guy made of sand, there wasn't much to say.)

Seeing this makes me want to make a Clayface bio.

May I use some of this for my Toph Beifong vs. Sandman fight? puhleeeeeeeeeease?

Add to his feats that he KILLED SPIDER-MAN in another universe that was being invaded by the Marvel Zombies. Sandman was panicked because a Zombie Spider-Man ate the Sinister Six. He found his fully normal Spider-Man and mistook him for the Zombie one. So he went inside him through his mouth and made him blow up.
PokeSEGA64 Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2015
     I remember that. Sure, I'll add that, it's just... Not only did he kill Spider-Man, but the way in which he did it was... *shudder* It's hard for a Spidey fan to think about, y'know?
oODark-DawnOo Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2015
Totally. But it also speaks volumes about just how dangerous his enemies are. Most of them are just not smart enough to think of something like that... and in Sandman's case, not crazy enough. It's that one shred of humanity that has kept Sandman from thinking like that and kept Spidey from dying. That part was thrown out a window when Sandy found himself fighting for his life. Thankfully, he makes amends by helping stop the Zombie invasion and killing the Zombie Spider-Man.

But on another note, this bio is VERY detailed and well made! Nice to see someone making a bio about one of Spidey's most dangerous foes (with the worst of them being Joe Quesada). Maybe we could have a Mysterio bio or a Doc Ock one or a Green Goblin one. So many to choose from Spidey's Rogues' Gallery!
PokeSEGA64 Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2015
     ... Huh. Never thought of it like that. But yeah, when you put it like that, it makes you think about how human Sandman really is. Any case, thanks for the praise.

     "... one of Spidey's most dangerous foes (with the worst of them being Joe Quesada)."

     You just made my damn day.
oODark-DawnOo Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2015
What? It's true! Though I think it'll get fixed. The story "Renew Your Vows", which is the biggest middle finger to OMD, has received a lot of praise.
PokeSEGA64 Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2015
     Well, any middle finger to One More Day is always welcome.

Who do you think would win?  This guy or Crocodile since both of them are made out of sand.
PokeSEGA64 Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2015
     I actually don't know much about Crocodile (haven't gotten that far into One Piece)... What exactly is the extent of his sand abilities?
Badork11 Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2015
He's just like Sandman only, like most devil fruit eaters, he loses his powers and goes limp in sea water.  And he can remove the sheath on his hook to reveal it's poisonous.  
PokeSEGA64 Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2015
     Hm... Well, from what I gather, Crocodile seems more susceptible to pain (He's more likely to retain a physical form... unless you want to correct me on that) and while neither can fight in the sea, Sandman can't really... well... drown. He'll just eventually get back to the surface and remake himself.
     The poison thing, though... That throws a wrench in things...
     So, yeah, not sure. 
Badork11 Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2015
PokeSEGA64 Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2015
     That changes things up a bit.
     Well, I think Sandman holds a physical advantage, especially when given a lot of sand. Croc, though, appears to be smarter, and has similar mastery over sand. That acid hook in particular seems like a major liability.
     I guess Crocodile wins.
MountainMan246 Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2015
Something else that's interesting is that Crocodile can't use his powers to dry out Sandman by grabbing him with his bare hand. To do that, the opponent needs water and organic matter/mass in their body. What is Sandman made out of?  Sand. ^_^
