Powers/Abilities/Functions: The Spectre-Suit sets off an aura of coherant light parallel to itself, converting the light into energy which then rendered the suit and wearer invisible.

History: (Strange Tales I#164/2) - In order to trace an agent of the Yellow Claw (actually a robot being used by Dr. Doom) back to his master, Nick Fury donned the Spectre-Suit and set his car to transparent mode, rendering it invisible as well. He trailed the agent's car, and used an image distorter to make him crash it, allowing him an opportunity to slip into the back seat of the agent's car unnoticed. As the agent continued on his journey, the Spectre-Suit ran out of power, and Fury removed and discarded it so that it wouldn't slow him down.

Comments: Created by Jim Steranko and Bill Everett.
