The Mental-Wave Absobatron was meticulously constructed over the years by the Controller with the mechanical appendages provided by his brother Vincent Sandhurst.

It was the source of the Controller's power: the machine constantly absorbed the entire force of each individual's mind and beamed it to mental-receivers in his exo-skeleton, giving him the power of whatever number of persons were attached[1].

Since his power was limited only by the number of minds whose force he usurped, and the beaming range of the Absorbatron, the Controller loaded the machine on an express train to New York City in order to enslave its citizens.

Near the city, Jasper Sitwell eventually managed to uncouple the cars with the Absorbatron and his slaves, thus letting Iron Man defeat the Controller[2].
