Dr. Bentley Wittman grew up possessing near-superhuman levels of genius and, as an adult, became an inventor of great renown, selling his futuristic inventions to the wealthy and becoming quite rich. He became known as "The Wizard" by legally assuming this stage name and using his advanced scientific inventions to perform feats of "magic."
Intellectually bored, however, he decided to defeat Johnny Storm, who had just appeared to the world as the Human Torch. Pretending to be a victim, he was rescued by the Torch and invited him to his high-tech, futuristic mansion on Long Island where he captured the Torch with ease. The Wizard then impersonated the Torch, launching a crime spree to destroy the Torch’s reputation. Soon after the Wizard was captured and sent to prison by the Human Torch and the secretly helpful Invisible Woman.
