ClassificationAdvanced (future era; 40th century Earth-6311 or another base)

Creator: Presumably Kang the Conqueror (Nathaniel Richards)

Possessors: Kang the Conqueror

First Appearance: Avengers I#11 (December, 1964) atomo-duplicator-kang-timespinner

Powers/Abilities/Functions: If programmed with images, photos, and data about an individual, he Atomo-Duplicator can create a three-dimensional proto-image of that individual, from which the Iso-Nuclear Duplicator could then create a robot duplicating the appearance and abilities of that individual.

(Avengers I#11 - BTS) - When Iron Man was on a leave of absence from the Avengers (circa Tales of Suspense I#61), Kang resolved that the time was right to seek vengeance on the Avengers. Seeking to avoid risk of betrayal by allying with anyone, Kang resolved to use a robot under his command. Further seeking an individual agent to avoid potential in-fighting as well as a being with the power and skill to be successful, Kang resolved to create a Spider-Man robot.

(Avengers I#11) - Using recordings of Spider-Man in action to compile data on his powers and abilities via long hours of intensive study, Kang then fed all photos and facts into his Atomo-Duplicator, which then created a three-dimensional proto-image of the real Spider-Man.

    Kang next had his Iso-Nuclear Duplicator analyze the proto-image, which it then used to create a
robotic duplicate of Spider-Man, possessing every ability of the original but answerable only to Kang.
    After the robot identified itself, Kang allowed the proto-image to vanish, after which he sent the Spider-Man robot back to the 21st century where it engaged the Avengers.   

Comments: Created by Stan Lee, Don Heck, and Chic Stone.

    Kang's Spider-Man robot has been codenamed "Timespinner" for clarification.
