The Image Inducer is a technological object used by super-humans with unusual appearances to disguise themselves as normal human beings.

History

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. This becomes a problem for Nightcrawler; if anyone actually touches him, they can feel his fur, or if he lets his tail move it appears outside the holographic image. [1]

Toad once stole the device in order to impress Wanda Maximoff with a better appearance. [2] Xavier offered to provide an inducer for Hank McCoy after he became Beast, but McCoy declined. [3]
