The Invisible Boy
Real Name: Tim Talbot
Identity/Class: Human mutate
Occupation: School boy
Enemies: Various small time criminals
Known Relatives: Unnamed father
Base of Operations: England
First Appearance: Eagle (1983)
Powers/Abilities: Able to turn invisible, so long as he is holding onto one of the micro-cell batteries his father had designed. This power extended to whatever clothes he was wearing at the time, and presumably to small items he is carrying.
History: Tim Talbot had been exposed to strange radiation when he accidentally interrupted an experiment in his father's laboratory. Thereafter if he touched a micro-cell battery with his bare flesh, he would become invisible.
Comments: One of the early Eagle photo stories (and not a particularly good one either - it didn't survive the transition when the magazine switched into all art stories). While Tim often used his powers to deal with school bullies and similar problems, he did sometimes turn his hand to crime fighting - and strangely we never saw him sneaking into the girls' changing rooms, which is what most teenage boys would do if they could become invisible.
