WOLVERINE JET

Classification: Terrestrial vehicle

Creator: Unrevealed (see comments)

User/Possessors: Captain America, Scarbo, Suprema

First Appearance: Captain America I#123 (March, 1970)

Powers/Abilities/Functions: The Wolverine Jet possesses an electro-scanner which can be used to hone in on radio frequencies, including those used in S.H.I.E.L.D. communicators. It can also generate electrical currents, and has canons on either side of its trailer which can fire gas bombs.

History: (Captain America I#123)- The Wolverine Jet was employed by Suprema and Scarbo to carry their troops across New York while they took control of New York's crimelords. When Suprema decided to target S.H.I.E.L.D., they used the Wolverine Jet's electro-scanner to locate Dum-Dum Dugan via his S.H.I.E.L.D. communicator. They had Dum-Dum lead them to S.H.I.E.L.D.'s weaponry range, where they took control of the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents present. Captain America escaped them, and stole the Wolverine Jet from them. When he realized that Suprema and Scarbo's powers were caused by hypnosis, he used the Wolverine Jet to generate an electrical current which released the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents from their control. He then fired the Wolverine Jet's gas at Suprema and Scarbo, knocking them unconscious.

Comments: Created by Stan Lee, Gene Colan and Joe Sinnott.

Since the Tinkerer designed the devices Suprema later used as Mother Night, he probably designed the Wolverine Jet as well.
