Much of Professor Jason Wilkes's past is unknown. However, he did gain a reputation for his scientific work with vision and light. He also shared a house with his spinster sister.
At one point, Professor Wilkes' received an anonymous letter promising him great wealth if he came to an abandoned mansion on evening. Wilkes' greed led him to the mansion where he met a communist agent who offered him a million dollars for research into an invisibility ray. Accepting treason, Wilkes went to work.
Soon after, Wilkes succeeded in building two Electromagnetic Ray Projectors (The invisibility ray which emitted a beam that made matter invisible, while the "antidote" ray shot a beam that counteracted those effects and made the matter visible again.) After successfully testing both projectors on a bowl of fruit, a cat, a fishbowl containing three goldfish, and a canary, Professor Wilkes tried the invisibility ray on himself, which resulted in him becoming intangible and imperceptible to other humans. Therefore, he couldn't reverse the effects with the "antidote" ray as he could not touch it. In addition, Wilkes discovered that since his vocal chords were also immaterial, he couldn't speak or call for help. Unable to interact with the physical world, Jason Wilkes realized he had paid the ultimate price for his betrayal.
Professor Wilkes' current whereabouts are unknown.
There is nothing there, but here is the Marvel.com bio page for Professor Wilkes, http://marvel.com/universe/Wilkes_Jason.
Professor Wilkes made his first appearance in the TV show, Marvel's Agent Carter. Like the comics, he was a scientist who ends up becoming invisible. However, in the TV show, Wilkes became invisible due to exposure from "Zero Matter." It is yet to be know if his invisibility state is temporary or permanent.
