Whizzer is an elderly man who wears a S.H.I.E.L.D. uniform. In his hero form he wears a yellow suit with a W on the chest, little wings on his head and a ring on the finger.
During World War II, Robert Frank as the Whizzer was a superhero alongside Captain America, Bucky, Miss America, and the Human Torch android. In the present, Robert Frank is a teacher at the Triskelion's S.H.I.E.L.D. Academy. When Arnim Zola is reactivated, Spider-Man learns from Robert Frank's scrapbook that the Whizzer had fought Arnim Zola. During Spider-Man's fight with Zola's synthezoids, Whizzer arrives to help. Whizzer tells Spider-Man, Iron Spider, Agent Venom, and Power Man to target the ESP Box on Zola. Upon Amadeus Cho activating a signal in his Iron Spider armor, Zola loses control of the synthezoids, causing them to become unstable. Whizzer takes the opportunity to punch Arnim Zola.
