History

An Image inducer is a device that produces a hologram to disguise the appearance of the user.The inducer looks like a small watch, providing a cover for anyone who asks about it. It was originally developed by Iron Man[1] at Stark Industries.

It covers the person's body and gives them any other appearance. It conforms to the person's movements. It can even be changed to give the user an entirely different appearance.

The inducer's main drawback is that it only generates a look but cannot hide the feel of the person's skin. Nor can it hide anything not within the range of a normal human being. This becomes a problem for Nightcrawler. If anyone actually touches them they can feel his fur, or if he lets his tail move it appears outside the holographic image.

The inducer can also short out if there is a problem or if low on energy.

The Genoshan Magistrates were once defeated by Polaris in the guise of Magneto, using an Image Inducer.[2]

Nightcrawler later used a Shi'ar X-9000 Image-Inducer instead of this Stark-designed model.[3]

During his quest to Wundagore Mountain to seek for the High Evolutionary's help in order to reserve the M-Day, Beast used an image inducer to prevent himself from frighten his Sherpas.[4]

Wade Wilson (Earth-616) had access to an holographic image inducer that he can use to disguise his true appearance as necessary.

The Image inducer was created by Professor Charles Xavier for Kurt Wagner. Wagner was born with blue fur and a tail and was always ostracized from society. Xavier wanted him to live a normal life among other teenagers. The inducer's main drawback is that it only generates a look but cannot hide the feel of the person's skin. Nor can it hide anything not within the range of a normal human being. This becomes a problem for Nightcrawler. If anyone actually touches them they can feel his fur, or if he lets his tail move it appears outside the holographic image.[5] Toad once stole the device in order to impress Scarlet Witch with a better appearance.[6] Xavier offered to provide an inducer for Hank McCoy after he became Beast, but McCoy refused.
