Powers/Abilities: Bobby was a brilliant young inventor who assembled his creations from spare parts he picked up in the local junkyard.

History: (Journey into Mystery I#82/2) - A citywide heat wave was making life miserable for the Tyler family, so Bobby Tyler volunteered to build a window fan for their house. Bobby’s fan worked well, but it had an unexpected function. The fan somehow drew an “Outer Space Object” down from space and right into the Tyler family backyard. The “Outer Space Object” was causing the mysterious heat wave, and after government agents took it away the heat wave ended. The whole city was grateful for what Bobby did, and they honored him by putting his window fan in a museum.

Comments: Created by an unnamed writer.

As with many 1950's and 1960's Marvel monster stories, this story is not confirmed as part of Earth-616 continuity, but there's nothing to exclude it either.
