    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    Born and raised in Hull, Bobby Carmichael was a young man living a dissatisfied life on the dole when he began to have a dream about a mysterious whispering figure and a tree which grew gloves. One night, he put one of the gloves on his right hand, and when he awoke he found he had lost both his arms; in the place where his right hand should be, the glove from his dream hung in empty space. He obeyed the summons of the strange figure in his dream, which called him to Venice and the new Brotherhood of Dada.


    Love Glove was created by Grant Morrison and Richard Case. He made his first appearance in Doom Patrol #49.
