Wyatt Wingfoot is an Indian with Comanche blood, born of the Keewazi Tribe of Oklahoma. His father was Will Wingfoot, America’s greatest Decathlon athlete. But when Wyatt grew up and transferred from the Indian Mission school outside of Tulsa to Metro University in New York, he, himself, evidenced no interest in athletics. On his first day at Metro U, Wyatt met the Fantastic Four’s Johnny Storm, also a new student, and as they were both some-what celebrities they were brought into the office of Dean Asher. They later decided to room together in the North-Field dorms and swiftly became good friends.
Wyatt stood up for Johnny in even mundane situations, such as when the football team’s star player, Whitey Mullins, harassed him, goading him about his powers. This attracted the attention of Whitey’s coach, Sam Thorne, who played with Wyatt’s father and wanted Wyatt to join the football team. Wyatt sternly refused, but Thorne made it his duty to convince him. Later, when the Black Panther sent out an invitation to Wakanda to the Fantastic Four, Johnny invited Wyatt to come along with him. The four heroes and Wyatt discovered that the Panther had lured them there to test himself as his country’s leader, and it was only with Wyatt’s unexpected help that they were able to overcome T’Challa’s traps and gain his respect. Wyatt used his training as a tracker, initially to help against the Black Panther, and then soon afterwards against Klaw’s unexpected attack.
When the Fantastic Four prepared to leave Wakanda, Johnny Storm refused to go with them, and instead announced his intention to seek out the Inhumans' city of Attilan and burn his way in to free his love, Crystal. Wyatt immediately offered to help and the Black Panther gave them his Gyro-Cruiser to travel there. After a brief episode with the Wanderer, the pair ran into the Inhuman’s loyal companion, Lockjaw. The canine Inhuman soon took Wyatt and Johnny on a teleporting trip around the planet, and presumably off it, until Wyatt managed to train him to obey orders. Lockjaw briefly brought Johnny and Wyatt back to the Baxter Building where they fought and later rescued the original Human Torch before seeing him destroyed. Then the Inhuman teleported away once more, with both Wyatt and Johnny leaping to follow him, off to another world. But Lockjaw sensed danger and finally teleported them to New York again in time to help against Doctor Doom - who had recently stolen the power cosmic from the Silver Surfer. Wyatt joined the Fantastic Four’s fight, helping out even though he lacked super powers, and together they defeated Doctor Doom.
Wyatt remained friends with Johnny Storm and the Fantastic Four for many years afterwards, occasionally joining them on missions and receiving help from them in turn. Most notably when the Red Star Oil Company-which bought oil from his tribe and made the Indians rich-sent a false, robot image of their god, Tomazooma, to scare them off their land. Johnny and his team came at Wyatt's suggestion and soon defeated the robot and saved his tribe. Though Johnny’s career at college ended abruptly, Wyatt continued on to receive his Bachelor’s Degree. After the death of his grandfather, Silent Fox, his tribe offered him a place as the chief, but he turned it down in order to travel with his intimate friend, the She-Hulk.
Wyatt is in excellent physical condition, is capable of training and controlling animals, and is an expert in tracking, thanks to his tribal training.
