The first Marvel Boy was Robert Grayson, the son of a famous rocket scientist. Robert wore the alien bracelets known as quantum-bands to gain the ability both to fly and to generate powerful solar blasts. Once a hero of the Golden Age, his Silver Age appearance in Fantastic Four #164 spelled his demise, as his quantum bands’ energy went out of control and engulfed him. All that was left were the quantum bands themselves.

The bands were taken into custody by S.H.I.E.L.D. agents and sent to Stark International for study. While there, they were about to be captured by A.I.M. agents when a young S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, Wendell Vaughn, grabbed them instead. Placing them upon his wrists, he gained the powers of the original Marvel Boy, as well the power to shape the energies of the bands into physical objects. Thus Wendell Vaughn became the second Marvel Boy, later known as Quasar.
