Powers/Abilities: Dr. Wheetly was an accomplished scientist whose research is focused on observing other dimensions.
(Wonder Man I#1 (fb) - BTS) - Employed at Cordco headquarters, Wheetly undertook research into observing other dimensions, but progress was slow and his device underpowered.
(Wonder Man I#1) - Cal Oakly was showing prospective employee Wonder Man through the labs, greeting Wheetly on the way. Straight after, hoping to improve performance, Wheetly boosted the electricity to his machine, draining other labs. Unseen, the brief surge opened an extradimensional portal that allowed warring, gnomish creatures to enter, creating significant chaos. Wheetly triggered the alarm that led to Wonder Man successfully stopping the threat. The next day, Wheetly secretly re-entered his lab and restarted his machine, but this led to Oakly being pulled into a new portal. Wheetly then watched as security chief Dulcy Kimble entered the rift and retrieved Oakly. He stood nearby awhile the two recovered from their ordeal.
