Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor. (COMIC: Dead Man's Hand, PROSE: Wardenclyffe)

Edison lived in New York City and owned Edison Machine Works, where Helena was a personal secretary. (PROSE: Wardenclyffe) He also hired inventor Nikola Tesla to dig trenches for the company. After Edison made a comment about offering "$50,000" to the man that could fix his generator, Tesla took it seriously and worked on the device for a full year until he did so. Edison, however, offered him a small raise instead. This angered Tesla and led to him leaving the company to work independently, (TV: Nikola Tesla's Night of Terror) reportedly on 30 March 1884. (PROSE: Wardenclyffe)

According to Professor Celeste Rivers, Thomas Edison had strong interests in the paranormal. (TV: The Lost Boy)
