Doctor Spectrum (03 - Billy Roberts)
Real Name: Billy Roberts
Search for 'Doctor Spectrum (03 - Billy Roberts)' on Amazon


Powers:
Used Krimonn the Power Prism, a Skrull transformed into a power object.

Bio:
Unknown to Iron Man, the Power Prism reforms and is found by a sanitation worker, who eventually brings it to evangelist Billy Roberts, who after learning of the Prism's abilities becomes the second Doctor Spectrum. The second Doctor Spectrum then assists the original members of the Squadron Sinister, who together with the alien Nebulon attempt to flood the Earth, but are stopped by the superhero team the Defenders. After this defeat the Squadron Sinister are teleported off world by Nebulon, but are later returned to Earth. Having acquired an energy-draining weapon, the Squadron Sinister plan to threaten the Earth once more but are defeated by the Defenders and the Avenger Yellowjacket.

After this defeat, the Power Prism is kept by Yellowjacket, who decides to modify the gem and present it to his wife Janet Van Dyne (also a fellow Avenger - the Wasp). The Power Prism seizes control of the Wasp and transforms her into a mind-controlled female Dr. Spectrum, who battles several Avengers but is then defeated. The Power Prism bonds to the Wasp in an attempt to save itself, but is eventually removed by Billy Roberts after he is located by the Avengers. Roberts becomes Doctor Spectrum once more, although on this occasion the Power Prism is in control and seeks to bond with the most powerful Avenger, the Thunder God Thor. The Power Prism succeeds in doing so, but fails to take into account that to wield the mystic hammer Mjolnir, Thor must be "worthy". Thor drops Mjolnir and reverts back to his mortal alter-ego Donald Blake, which results in the Power Prism losing control and becoming inert, apparently forever.
