History: (Fantastic Four I#17) - The "Professor" held a meeting with Mr. Spade to test out an attachment to a ping-pong gun. Mr. Spade brought his toy gun in a violin case, and was going to test the refitted toy against the Professor, but they were being watched by the Invisible Girl, who mistook them for a pair of criminals. Thinking that the Professor's life was in danger, she threw Spade's aim off, and he fired his ping-pong balls into the air. He angrily berated the Professor for his seeming lack of quality work, but the Professor pleaded to have another chance.
