History: (Fantastic Four I#15) - Roger led an
executive meeting at General Electronics, Ltd, in which he suggested
they needed to find a scientific genius to head up General Electronics'
electronic research division. Fellow executives Cartwright and Van Dorn
admitted they had no ideas in mind, remarking to Roger that specialists
don't grow on trees. As the janitor who was cleaning behind them laid
down a Fantastic Four comic
book, Roger ordered the two other executives to keep looking for the
right man for the job. Soon noticing the brightly-colored cover of the
comic book the janitor had laid down, Roger announced that he had found
the man they were looking for. Cartwright and Van Dorn at first
questioned Roger's proclamation and disregarded the idea of finding an
employee on the cover of a comic book but they soon completely agreed
with Roger after noticing that the comic book featured Reed Richards,
one of the most gifted inventive geniuses in the world. The two other
executives then announced to Roger that they send for Reed Richards
immediately. Once Reed Richards had been lured into the employment of
General Electronics, Roger came back to check on Richards and found
Richards emerging from a piece of machinery. Concerned as to what
exactly was going on, Roger asked Richards, who admitted his methods
were a bit unorthodox, as he liked to examine the machinery inside and
out. When Richards stretched his arms to show how much space would be
needed for new devices, Roger asked why Richards had to emphasize his
points so dramatically and he reminded Richards that he was in a
laboratory not a carnival. Roger then departed the room, asking
Richards to keep at his work and promising he would check in again the
