Graviton is a fictional character that appears in comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character first appears in Avengers #158 (April 1977) and was created by Jim Shooter and Sal Buscema.

Franklin Hall is a physicist involved in an experiment in a private research facility in the Canadian Rockies.

A furious Graviton then lifts the facility several thousands of feet into the sky and threatens to kill the scientist.
