History: Casey is an alien who presumably works for the TVA as a conductor on the "cross-time express" transport, the Illinois Central Cannonball Express.
(Fantastic Four I#354, 1991)-. With the help of Fantastic Four, Casey transported them through time/space to their own timeline, narrowly escaping a delayed worm computer program designed by Mr. Fantastic in the process. This computer program restructured reality so that the TVA would not be able to detect the F.F.s timeline, and it manifested itself as a white, featureless, wave. The price for the trip home was their uniforms which would be unraveled and rewoven into railroad garments; this was important to Casey since possessing terrestrial cloth is prohibited by inter-timezone trading and, thus, is rare.
The Illinois Central Cannonball Express-A replica of the Earth "Big Boy" Union Pacific engine of earthly design.
Comments: Besides railroads, there may be other aesthetically preferred modes of transportation by different TVA time/space conductors.
I'd think Casey took his name from the legendary Casey Jones.--Snood
