The Image Inducer is a technological object used by super-humans with unusual appearances to disguise themselves as normal human beings.
The Image inducer was created by Professor Charles Xavier for Kurt Wagner. Wagner was born with blue fur and a tail, and was always ostracized from society. Xavier wanted him to live a normal life among other teenagers. The inducer's main drawback is that it only generates a look, but cannot hide the feel of the person's skin; nor can it hide anything, not within the range of a normal human being.
