(Fantastic Four I#203 (fb) - BTS) - At some point, Dr. Henry Wallace was a teacher of Reed Richards. After Reed became the heroic Mister Fantastic, Reed still spent a good portion of his time helping Dr. Wallace perfect the equipment needed for Dr. Wallace's work.
Later that evening, as three dimensional simulacrum
of the Fantastic Four ran amuck in Herald Square, Willie Evans, Jr.'s
parents rushed into his room when the boy went into a frenzy and Dr.
Wallace admitted he didn't know what was causing such an event. When
one of the other doctors remarked that Evans, Jr.'s radiation levels
were spiking, Dr. Wallace assured the Evanses that they were doing
their best for Evans, Jr. As the parents left the room to let the
doctors work, Dr. Wallace worried to himself that their best might not
be enough before ordering the other doctors to re-do and double-check
the tests run on Evans, Jr. Dr. Wallace later monitored Evans, Jr.
alongside the boy's father, noting that the radioactive aura
surrounding the boy seemed to be increasing, as if Evans, Jr. was
fighting something inside himself, prompting Evans, Sr. to ask how long
his son could continue fighting. Noting the aura dim before brightening
more, Dr. Wallace soon witnessed Evans, Jr. flail out of control inside
the Comatron. After the Fantastic Four deduced that their rampaging
counterparts were cosmic energy constructs generated by Willie Evans,
Jr. and destroyed them by siphoning off the radiation, the group
visited New Hope Memorial Hospital, where Dr. Wallace learned from Mr.
Fantastic that Evans, Jr. was a mutant. Wallace then watched as Mr.
Fantastic gave the Evans family a business card for Professor Xavier's
School for Gifted Youngsters in hopes that Willie Evans, Jr. could be
trained to properly use his powers.

Dr. Wallace's first name was first revealed in the X-Men: Phoenix Force Handbook (2010)'s Willie Evans profile.
Brown was the closest I could get
to determining Dr. Wallace's eye color, as he was almost always seen
with his glasses obscuring his eye color. He only has his glasses off
in a single panel and they appeared to be a dark color, hence, brown.
