Classification: High-tech equipment
Creator: Tony Stark
First Appearance: Avengers I#6 (July, 1964)
Powers/Abilities/Functions: The ejector possesses a photoelectic cell. As soon as any radiation touched the cell, it ejects a rapidly unwinding spool of lead foil that wrapped itself around the source.
(Avengers I#6 (fb) - BTS) - Tony Stark invented the transistor-powered (see comments) ejector for scientists working in atomic labs, to protect them against atomic radiation.
(Avengers I#6) - While battling Baron (Heinrich) Zemo's Masters of Evil, Iron Man used the Ejector against the Radioactive Man (Chen Lu).
As Iron Man narrated its purpose and function, the ejector's photoelectric eye detected radiation from Lu and unleashed its lead spool, which proceeded to swiftly wrap around the Radioactive Man.
After Lu was completely contained, Iron Man then activated a rapidly-inflating lead-lined balloon, which he then tethered to the helpless Radioactive Man, causing him to float some distance in the air (apparently tethered to the ground (or at least the ejector's casing) as well) while waiting to be brought in by the authorities.
Comments: Created by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and Chic Stone.
I don't have expertise in electronics, engineering, etc., but as I learned the No-Prize book, transistors don't power anything. However, my understanding is that they can amplify power.
