Powers/Abilities: Searcher#1 existed as a robot equipped with a durable metallic shell. It was programmed as a pilot and could communicate any findings to Cornelius Van Lunt. It also apparently housed a ray blaster in its chest (see comments).
(Avengers I#81) – As Goliath, Scarlet Witch and the Vision flew with the Red Wolf in search of Cornelius Van Lunt. Van Lunt sent out a Zodiac attack craft housing Searcher#1 and other robots to destroy the heroes. Attacking the heroes’ Quinjet, the robots were quickly met in battle by the Vision, who destroyed many of the robots. While Searcher#1 attempted to report to Van Lunt that the craft was being taken down, the Vision increased his mass to the point that the craft could not stay in the air and it crashed to the ground, destroying Searcher#1 in the process.
Comments: Created by Roy Thomas, John Buscema and Tom Palmer.
According to the Official Index to the Avengers I#4 (December, 1987), all of the robots aboard the Zodiac attack craft (including Searcher#1) were equipped with ray guns in their chests.
