Powers/Abilities/Functions: The Vibrotron was created to restore Goliath’s growth abilities by bombarding him with ionized electrons via the Vibrotron harness worn by Goliath.
(Avengers I#51) – In an effort to regain his recently lost growing abilities, Goliath donned the Vibrotron harness and had Hawkeye subject him to the Vibrotron’s electron bombardment. Soon experiencing intense pain, Goliath yelled for Hawkeye to turn off the Vibrotron but Hawkeye exclaimed that the Vibrotron’s switch was stuck. Hawkeye and Wasp then attempted to force Goliath out of the Vibrotron’s harness but the energy feedback knocked them both for a loop. Shortly thereafter, Wasp flew into the device and began pulling every plug she could find, eventually unplugging the Vibrotron from its power source and freeing Goliath.
Comments: Created by Roy Thomas, John Buscema and George Tuska.
The Vibrotron was presumably trashed after it nearly killed Goliath, explaining its lack of further appearances...
