Users/Possessors: Mr. Fantastic

Powers/Abilities/Functions: The Anti-Cosmic Flying Wing was designed to absorb cosmic energy into itself, and programmed for combat and aerial manuevers. Its main objective was to serve as a decoy to lead Dr. Doom into outer space.

History: (Fantastic Four I#59) - As Dr. Doom lorded over the Earth with the Power Cosmic he had stolen from the Silver Surfer with the Cosmic Power Siphon Harness, Mr. Fantastic completed a model of the Anti-Cosmic Flying Wing, which he tested out on the Thing, and it managed to knock the Thing over.

(Fantastic Four I#60) - When the full-scale version of the Anti-Cosmic Flying Wing was completed, Reed had the military send it into battle against Doom. The Wing managed to drain some of Doom's powers and temporarily halt him, but then it departed, heading into the sky. Doom vowed to destroy the device to prove that Richards could not outthink him, but the Anti-Cosmic Flying Wing led him up into space, until Doom collided with the barrier Galactus had surrounded the Earth with to prevent the Silver Surfer from leaving. By striking the barrier, the power Doom had stolen from the Surfer was returned to him.

Comments: Created by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnott.
