Article Image

Sleepwalker is a Marvel hero that is a dream come true – well, a dream protector, at least. Created by Bob Budiansky and Bret Blevins, the character debuted in Sleepwalker #1 (June 1991) and starred in his own series for 33 issues through February 1994.

Sleepwalker comes from the Mindscape, a dimension that borders the minds of intelligent living things. Some of the Mindscape’s creatures are predatory and try to infiltrate sleeping human minds. The Sleepwalkers protect the Mindscape and sleeping minds, stopping evil creatures from invading people.

Naturally, the Sleepwalkers had enemies, like Cobweb, who tricked Sleepwalker into entering the mind of Rick Sheridan and he became trapped. Rick was a normal person who lived in Brooklyn where he was a college student and a building superintendent, so when Sleepwalker emerged, Rick was not too happy. The first time Sleepwalker emerged from Rick’s mind was to fight a gang and then he came out to fight dream-images of the Avengers, Fantastic Four, and the X-Men.

Sleepwalker and Rick started having confrontations in Rick’s dreams. During one such argument, Rick tore off Sleepwalker’s Imaginator, a badge that the Sleepwalkers use to travel around the Mindscape or imprison monsters. This action further bonds the supernatural character and the human man. While Rick sleeps, Sleepwalker could materialize or stay in Rick’s mind to communicate with him via his dreams. In one of these conversations, Sleepwalker was able to calm Rick’s fear that Sleepwalker was an enemy. They were able to work out an agreement so that Sleepwalker could fight crimes and help people.
