The Rubber Man first appeared in 'American Horror Story: Murder House' as the creepy man in the BDSM latex mask. Chad Warwick (Zachary Quinto) thought his boyfriend was cheating on him and was eager to preserve their relationship. He purchased the latex suit to spice up their lives, but his partner wasn't pleased about his decision, and eventually, they didn't use the suit.
Tate Langdon (Evan Peters) later adopted the suit and employed it as a mask to assassinate both Chad and his boyfriend, Patrick (Teddy Sears), launching a series of murders utilizing the suit and ultimately creating the Rubber Man. The character made a return in Apocalypse with the season's villain Michael Langdon (Cody Fern), visiting the Outpost 3 hallways and executing horrific murders.
Via his Instagram, Murphy posted the teaser picture with a caption that read, "Coming soon ..." which prompted many to believe the Rubber Man will feature in the season to follow. Peters' return to the cast list after he revealed that he was taking a break from 1984 could also be a hint at the revival of the Rubber Man.
