(Micronauts I#5 (fb) - BTS) - From his base, Human Engineering Life Laboratories (HELL), in which he investigated the existence of sub-aliens from a microscopic universe (the Microverse), Prometheus created robotic servants he dubbed Humanoids.
(Micronauts I#3 - BTS) - After Steve Coffin encountered the Micronauts and other natives of the Microverse, his father, former astronaut Ray Coffin called Phillip Prometheus for guidance. When Ray noted that this was an alien encounter, Prometheus agreed to meet Ray and Steve at the Kennedy Space Center.(Micronauts I#4 - BTS) - Ray Coffin (unwittingly followed by Bug) arrived at the HELL institute with Steve and their dog, Muffin, who had been blasted by weapons from the Microverse. Prometheus authorized Ray and Steve's admission (unaware that the Micronaut Bug was stowing away with them).
(Micronauts I#5 (fb) - BTS) - Prometheus summoned his Humanoids.(Micronauts I#5 - BTS) - Tracking Bug's brainwaves, the Micronauts entered the HELL institute as well.
