History: Wyatt Wingfoot is a member of the Keewazi tribe of American Indians and a descendant of the Comanche Indians. He was born at the Keewazi reservation in Oklahoma. Wyatt's father, Will Wingfoot, was the greatest American decathlon champion of his time. Wyatt's grandfather was Silent Fox, the chief of the Keewazi tribe until his death.

After attending a mission school near Tulsa, Oklahoma, Wyatt Wingfoot entered Metro College, which is across the river from Manhattan. There Wingfoot first met another incoming freshman, Jonathan "Johnny" Storm, who, as the Human Torch, was a member of the team of superhuman adventurers known as the Fantastic Four. Storm and Wingfoot became roommates at Metro College's Northfield Dormitory, and quickly became close friends.

When T'Chaila, the Black Panther, ruler of Wakanda, first invited the Fantastic Four to visit his country, Johnny Storm asked his teammates if Wingfoot could come along, and they enthusiastically agreed. To test himself in preparation for confronting his archenemy, Ulysses Klaw, the Black Panther attacked and trapped the Fantastic Four. However, the Panther underestimated Wingfoot, since the latter had no superhuman powers. Wingfoot freed the Fantastic Four, who then confronted the Panther. T'Challa then became friends with the Fantastic Four and Wingfoot, all of whom helped the Panther in battling Klaw soon afterwards.

Wyatt Wingfoot has become a good friend to the members of the Fantastic Four and has participated in many of their adventures over the years, always proving to be a valuable ally. Although Johnny Storm did not complete his studies at Metro College, Wingfoot finished his course work there and graduated. He then returned to live with his tribe on the Keewazi reservation.

After Silent Fox had been dead seven months, the Keewazi Council of Elders was about to make Wyatt Wingfoot the tribe's new chief. (Wyatt's father had died years before.) However, it was then that the alien menace Terminus arrived on Earth in Oklahoma. Wingfoot met up with Mister Fantastic, leader of the Fantastic Four, and the She-Hulk, who was serving a term in the group, when they came to Oklahoma to investigate. Wingfoot was at their side when they defeated Terminus. As a result of this experience, Wingfoot decided to decline the title of chief of his tribe, at least for the foreseeable future. Having seen and experienced wonders with the Fantastic Four, Wingfoot longed to see yet more of the world outside his village. He accepted Mister Fantastic's invitation to live with the Fantastic Four as a companion, and remains with them at this time. Wingfoot has recently begun a romance with the She-Hulk.

However, Wingfoot soon returned to his tribe, whose people discovered large oil deposits under their land. Wingfoot helped to set up a corporate entity to deal with this new aspect of business, as the United States' bureaucrats soon became involved.

Never apart from She-Hulk's life for very long, Wingfoot occasionally appears by her side.
