- Phineas Horton - Creator
- The Synthetic Man is based on the original Human Torch. He was a major member of the Invaders and also one of the first superheroes that appeared in a Marvel publication (Marvel Comics Vol 1 #1). The Human Torch killed Adolf Hitler in 1945, and it was once believed that Ultron had used his remains to create Vision. However, that was later revealed to be a temporal duplicate. The original Human Torch was eventually revived and joined the West Coast Avengers.
Behind the Scenes
- The appearance of the Synthetic Man in Captain America: The First Avenger is both an homage to the Human Torch being a member of the Invaders alongside Captain America, and Chris Evans' former role as the Human Torch.
