Classification: Terrestrial technology

Creator: Tony Stark

Users/Possessors: Iron Man (Tony Stark), Wasp

First Appearance: Avengers I#3 (January, 1964)

Powers/Abilities/Functions: The Image Projector was a transistor-powered device which could project a three-dimensional image (holographic?) of anyone standing on its platform to any location the user desired, even psychically seeking out its intended target. The image could move around and communicate with people at the location it was projected to.

History: (Avengers I#3) - After the Hulk quit the Avengers, Iron Man used the Image Projector to send an image to himself around to other super-heroes, asking them to inform the Avengers if they had any sight of the Hulk. He contacted the Fantastic Four at the Baxter Buiding, Spider-Man on a rooftop, and the X-Men at Xavier's School For Gifted Youngsters.

(Avengers I#12) - When Giant-Man went missing after an investigation into Subterranea, the Wasp used the Image Projector to locate him, and found that he was in the kingdom of the Mole Man, being held prisoner. The Mole Man saw the Wasp's image, and determined where it had come from, then dispatched an army of Moloids to attack the Avengers Mansion.

Comments: Created by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Paul Reinman.
