History: (Avengers I#351 (fb) - BTS) - Galen served as the physician to the Royal Family in Attilan. When the Black Knight of the Avengers was injured, Quicksilver teleported in with Lockjaw, needing Galen's help, and Black Bolt sent Galen to Earth.

(Avengers I#351) - Lockjaw teleported Galen to the Avengers and he met the Avengers and their nanny employee Marilla, as well as the Starjammers. Galen worked with Dr. Keith Kincaid to stabilize the Black Knight. When the alien robot insectoid Sikorsky offered to help Galen operate, Galen was initially skeptical but accepted the offer. Soon, Galen informed the heroes that the Black Knight had stabilized.

Comments: Created by Bob Harras, Kevin West and Bud LaRosa.

Galen's name was surely taken from (or hinted at) the name Galeno, a renowned physician in the classic Roman era. --Spidermay
