From the beginning of time, there have been reports of flying humanoids.
The humanoids below do not come from the minds of DC or Marvel Comics writers and artists; they come from real people like you and me. Read on!
Van Meter Creature. The town of Van Meter, Iowa became under siege on October 1903. We get reports of an entity that has massive membranous wings. It also has a beak and a glowing horn on its head that emits light. Witnesses say that this entity came from an opening of a Van Meter mine shaft. If you believe in the Hollow Earth theory, then you will understand that there is a possible world inside of our Earth. A world described to have crystal cities, flying discs and many strange humanoids. Admiral Byrd was the first one that made claim that he went into an opening in the Earth while in Antarctica and came upon a very strange reality. A reality in which a UFO captured his plane for a while and dragged his plane deeper into the abyss. It’s hard to understand how this great adventurer and explorer would fabricate such a story, unless it really did happen. It is also said that in the subterranean depths of Earth is where Bigfoot takes residence. Many local Indian legends and even the Sumerian Clay Tablets make reference of wild men or Bigfoot living in the deep caverns of our planet.
Britain’s Bat Winged Monkey Bird: Witness Jacki Hartley. Seen several times by Jacki and had the attributes of 3 animals, bat, bird and monkey. Was Jacki hallucinating or did she really see this creature? From all reports, she seems to be the only one that saw this creature. Could this creature be demonic in nature and was it merely an attachment that Jacki had?
Madison Birdman: Lisa Letanosky. June 2012. Madisonville, Tennessee. Lisa claims that this creature looked like a Pterodactyl. There were other witnesses to this event, which makes Lisa story appear credible.
Owlman: Seen near the forest by the Mawnan Church. Nearby is ancient earthwork above the Helford River in Cornwall, adjacent to Falmouth Bay. Also seen is sea serpent known as Morgawr. The Owlman with the head of an owl, the body of a man and the wings of an owl has been seen by multiple witnesses. Some people make claim that if you witness the Owlman, that there will soon be a death in your family.
Mothman of The Tower Bridge: We all know of the Mothman of Point Pleasant and there are stories that this harbinger of doom was seen before 9/11. Mark Greer (Sacramento resident) and 2 other witnesses in Sacramento that want to remain anonymous claim that they saw a Mothman type of creature along the banks of the Sacramento River. Mark claims that he saw the Mothman on top of the Tower Bridge. This was all reported on News 10. The other two witnesses did not want to be identified, due to the fact that they did not want to be ridiculed in regard to their sighting claim. If the Mothman is a harbinger of doom, it must be noted that nothing disastrous occurred in Sacramento after the sightings. The only disastrous occurrence in Sacramento and the State of California was our State budget fiasco.
