Microman lives in an ordinary house in Los Angeles, California, but he is not an ordinary person. He is half human, and half creature, and he has red skin. However, he does not know who his parents were.
Microman might have had an ant dad, and a human mom which might be the reason he can possess abilities. His abilities are running fast, communicating with creatures like bugs, and changing his size from normal to small like an ant.
Microman uses his powers to defend real life creatures. He has an energy container stored in his body, so if he uses his powers too much, he would run out of energy. Before he could use his abilities again, he would have to wait a week until it is restored. The only way he could die is by being stomped on or killed by Macroman which is his enemy.
