Creators and Appearances


Doctor Doom developed this device early in his career, and found a chance to test it during his second encounter with Spider-man in Doom's hidden laboratory at New York City. The machine included metallic spheres orbitting a magnetical core. The balls were virtually unstoppable and presented a real threat when approaching an enemy. Spider-man disabled the machine by covering the core with web, thus nullifying the power source of the spheres. The spheres fell harmlessly to the floor… except because later Spider-man tripped on the balls and fell, giving the advantage to Doom. Doom was forced to retreat from the fight just at that point.[1]

In Other Universes


Satellite Machine, Earth-98121.

In this universe, Doctor Doom also uses the (unnamed) Satellite Machine in his first encounter with Spider-man. Like in Earth-616, Spider-man understands that the attacking spheres orbit a core and covers it with web, making the balls fall harmlessly. Unlike in Earth-616, Spider-man never trips on the immobile balls.[2]
