Fictional character biography
Wyatt, son of "Big Will Wingfoot — the greatest Olympic
decathlonstar this country ever had!", ["Fantastic Four" #51 (June 1966): "This Man...This Monster!" Description per Empire State University football coach Jim Thorpe — a sly reference to real-life Native American decathlete Jim Thorpe.] was born on the fictional Keewazi Reservation in Oklahoma. He left to attend college at the equally fictional Empire State University in New York City. There, Wingfoot became roommates and friends with Johnny Storm. Wyatt has occasional adventures with Storm and the others. He assists in tracking down a 'threat' to frightened citizens, which simply turns out to be the lost canine of the Inhumans, the teleporting Lockjaw. Wyatt soon completes his degree and returns to the reservation.
After the death of Wingfoot's grandfather, the Keewazi chief, the Council of Elders called on Wyatt to accept the position. At the same time, the alien known as Terminus came to Oklahoma to devour Earth's resources, and the Fantastic Four arrive for battle. Wingfoot turns down the position as chief and followed the FF instead. He later began an intimate relationship with the foursome's member
She-Hulk. He continued this relationship after she left the team (after the Thing's return) and ended up becoming involved in her adventures as well. He was part of a group of innocent citizens kidnapped by a teleportation beam when S.H.I.E.L.D.went after She-Hulk. He helps her to escape confinement by pressing the appropriate amount of weight onto the pressure-sensitive floor of the cell they were confined in. This was a difficult task as She-Hulk is much larger then his already tall form. It turns out this incident was part of an internal power struggle within S.H.I.E.L.D. and to further complicate things, one of the citizens was actually a sentient colony of cockroaches. They would go after the corrupt S.H.I.E.L.D. officer in charge, endangering everyone on board and anyone the helicarriermight crash in to. She-Hulk soon neutralizes the threat.
Wyatt joins She-Hulk for some adventures in her own series. There, like many of the cast members, he becomes aware of his own reality as a fictional being.
Wingfoot eventually returns to his tribe when they discover large oil deposits under their land. He helps broker a deal between the
United States governmentand the Keewazi.
Wyatt is briefly seen being interviewed on the news show 'Lateline' about his association with the group. ["Fantastic Four" #543]
A seemingly Caucasian "Lord Wingfoot" appears in the
Marvel 1602miniseries "1602: Fantastick Four" as a rival to John Storm for the hand of Doris Evans. According to Storm the man is a "godless brute". At the end of the series, when Mistress Evans has thrown them both over for William Shakespeare, Storm and Wingfoot resolve their differences over a drink.
In the alternate future of "
Earth X", Wyatt has become Captain America's new partner 'Redwing'. Together they battle the multi-minded alien menace 'Hydra' which has taken many people they both know, including She-Hulkand Sharon Carter.
During the "
Heroes Reborn" company-wide crossover, an alternate-universe analog of Wingfoot was purportedly a government agent assigned to monitor independent spaceflightand extraterrestrial meetings, but was in reality a spy working for that universe's version of Doctor Doom. It turned out later that the spy was the Skrull Kl'rt and the real Wingfoot managed to escape.
