Powers: The Living Eraser uses a device known as the Dimensionizer which can transport people to other dimensions, primarily between Earth and Dimension Z, although it has been used to travel to other realms as well. As the Dimensionizer passes over a surface, it turns it invisible, making it appear as if the victim is being erased. When the entire surface has been "erased," the being or object is transported across dimensions to its destination. The Living Eraser also has access to the advanced technology of Dimension Z, but he is a poor combatant. If you get past his "erasing" trick, he is pretty much done.
Height: (I) 5' 0"
Weight: (I) 125 lbs.
History: The Living Eraser is the title for the servant of the Supremacy chosen to possess the Dimensionizer.
(Tales to Astonish I#49/1 (fb) - BTS) - In order to steal the secret of nuclear power, the scientists of Dimension Z designed the Dimensionizer. Realizing that active nuclear weapons are neutralized by the dimensional transport, they decided to bring the scientists to Dimension Z to build weapons there.
(Tales to Astonish I#49/1) - The Living Eraser was sent to Earth, where he used his Dimensionizer to "erase" a number of scientists, sending them to Dimension Z, where they were imprisoned and forced to serve the Supremacy. One of these scientist was Henry Pym, who at the time had just become the super-hero Giant-Man. Unknown to the Eraser, Pym's partner, the Wasp, was on Pym's finger when he was erased, and she was transported to Dimension Z as well. She remained hidden until she had the opportunity to help him escape. Giant-Man and the Wasp helped free the other people who had been captured, and defeated the armies that tried to stop them. While searching for a way to escape the dimension, Giant-Man was again captured by the Living Eraser within an unbreakable glass cage. The Wasp, however, moved a lever to open the cage, and freed Giant-Man. Giant-Man and the Wasp easily defeated the Eraser, and used the Dimensionizer to return themselves and the scientists to Earth.
(Marvel Two-in-One#15 (fb) - BTS) - The Living Eraser overthrew the Supremacy and set himself up as lord of Dimension Z. He made plans to return to Earth to steal the science of their atomic weapons.
(Marvel Two-in-One#15) - The Living Eraser arrived on Earth, and was almost immediately attacked by a bloodthirsty Morbius. The assault was stopped by the Thing, but while the two fought, the Living Eraser "erased" them back to a prison in Dimension Z. Morbius and the Thing joined with the Supremacy, Petril, and Roween to escape the prison. The Supremacy brought them to the Eraserâ€™s laboratory, where he used a device to return them to Earth.
The Living Eraser had by then changed his mission due
to lack of support from the military, who were still loyal to the
Supremacy, but feared the Eraserâ€™s power. The Eraser sought to
regain their support by creating sufficient havoc on Earth to convince
them of his power, to have their full allegiance when he began his
planned conquest of "the dimensions." The Thing and Morbius attacked
and easily overpowered the Eraser, and the Thing had to stop Morbius
from putting the bite on him. Morbius used the Dimensionizer to flee to
another realm (see Comments).
(Nick Fury's Howling Commandos#2 (fb) - BTS) - After his defeat, the Living Eraser was taken into custody by S.H.I.E.L.D., and they utilized his technology to create their own Dimensionizer.
(Sensational She-Hulk#35) - The original Living Eraser was revealed to have been executed. The new Living Eraser discussed his plans to bring irradatiated humans to Dimension Z. After deciding that the Hulk was too unstable, he recommended using the She-Hulk. The Supremacy was instantly smitten with her and authorized any means necessary to bring her to him.
(Sensational She-Hulk#37) - The Living Eraser II brought the She-Hulk to Dimension Z, where the Supremacy revealed his plans to make her his wife. They attempted to force her to obey him by using her boyfriend, Wyatt Wingfoot, as a hostage. She-Hulk easily overpowered the armies of the Supremacy, freed Wyatt, and forced the Supremacy to lead her to the Living Eraser. She stole his Dimensionizer and tried to use it to return herself and Wyatt to Earth. However, the "eraser" mechanism overloaded, resulting in about five blank, white pages. She-hulk resolved this by yelling at John Byrne, and forced him to return her to her apartment.
(Defenders II#1 - BTS) - Apparently the scientists had created
a number of Dimensionizers, resulting in an entire squad of Living
Erasers. The extradimensional scientist/sorcerer Yandroth used the
power of Gaea
to bring a number of extradimensional menaces to Earth to wreak havoc.
A squad of Living Erasers was teleported to the Tokyo headquarters of
Big Hero Six.
(Nick Fury's Howling Commandos#2 - BTS) - The Eraser tech usurped by S.H.I.E.L.D. was used to transport a defeated Groot to their base.
Comments: Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.
Morbius ended up in a nearly empty realm, where he was attacked by the Empathoid.
