- I am the Dispatcher of Destiny... the Lamplighter of Legendry... the Imparter of Immortality!
- -- Father Time src
Father Time appears as a time-manipulating Elder of the Universe who unsuccessfully attempts to place Captain America in stasis alongside other iconic figures of American legend and folklore, including Uncle Sam, Johnny Appleseed, John Henry, and Pecos Bill and Paul Bunyan.
He was able to fight Cap in hand-to-hand combat, and force him to grow older as they fought.
Father time is completely immortal, and might be omnipotent and omniscient, possibly omnipresent.
The Scythe of Time
- Father Time the Elder of the Universe should not be confused with Larry Scott, the Golden Age hero Father Time first appearing in Captain America Comics #6 (September 1941). Other characters appearing in early pre-Marvel Comics may or may not be Father Time.
- Namor and Namora met a Father Time in Blonde Phantom #15 (Fall 1947) and the Blonde Phantom herself met him too in Blonde Phantom #22 (March 1949) and Marvel Mystery Comics #91 (April 1949). Plus The Official Handbook Of The Marvel Universe: Golden Age 2004 says that the Blonde Phantom occasionally received assignments from a mysterious man called Father Time.
- The short prose story Zero of time, originally published in Adventures Into Weird Worlds #7 (June 1952) and reprinted in Strange Tales #115 (1963, uncredited author) [] also features a character calling himself Father Time, who may be this one. That story may not have happen in Earth-616 continuity.
- There is a Pecos Bill in the Masked Raider story in Marvel Mystery Comics #9 (July 1941); and Uncle Sam appears in All-Winners Comics #6 (Fall 1942)
