Comments: Created by Mary A. Mintzer &/or Linda Karas &/or Michael Siporin (writer), Win Mortimer (pencils), Don Perlin (inks).
Physical stats are taken from the early Earth-616
version, as they look very much alike. He likely had other "clickable"
capabilities not (yet) revealed.
He may have had similar origins to his Earth-616 counterpart (also known as X-51).
With a green suit and bizarre hair, the foiled art
thief may have been Earth-57780's Thinker.
