Not to be confused with Mr. Visitor's House'
The Real Ghostbusters
The Ghostbusters were called to this house to deal with the hauntings. While Peter Venkman thought the call was another false alarm, Egon Spengler got readings right before his P.K.E. Meter went out. When Peter had an altercation with the house and ended up in the basement, all three Ghostbusters heard the name "Wat". Egon researched the name in Tobin's Spirit Guide and found Wat was a general and has a desire to rule the living world. Ray Stantz returned to the house to find the hauntings are now very apparent and meets with the other Ghostbusters. Egon leads them with his P.K.E. Meter to the back of the house in Mrs. Rogers' closet in her bedroom. They determine at that point Mrs. Rogers is Wat. As they try to leave the house, the house makes ever effort to stop them.
Towards the last room the house turns completely ectoplasmic in nature. The Ghostbusters finally get out when the possessed oven blows up. Later, it is shown that after Wat's capture, that the house was completely made of ghosts which all went back in a chest, which then exploded leaving an empty yard.
During an average day, a pink lightning bolt struck an empty lot in Bayside, Queens. Mrs. Roger's House manifested out of nowhere. An onlooker recorded a video clip and posted it online. Someone called the Ghostbusters about it. Peter Venkman assigned the case to the junior team, the Sanctum of Slime Ghostbusters. They protested because they just returned after teaming up with Ghostbusters of many parallel dimensions to recapture escaped ghosts from the prime dimension Ghostbusters' Containment Unit. Peter was not swayed to change his mind. Gabriel Sitter registered high readings off the house with his P.K.E. Meter, Bridget Gibbons got serious bad vibes from it, and even Alan Crendall felt something was off. Alan charged the door. Samuel Hazer observed Symmetrical Stacking. An old woman asked them who they were. Alan exclaimed they were the Ghostbusters. She didn't think they looked like them and claimed she would know because she was something of an admirer. Alan wasn't impressed and asked her why she was in the house. She claimed she was lived there. Alan contended the house appeared out of nowhere. She revealed she was Wat and attacked them with lightning blasts. She raised them up towards the ceiling. Gabriel reached for his Pocket-Sized Grenade and tossed it at Wat. Wat was dazed and presented an opening. Samuel threw out a Trap and thought he trapped Wat. However, Wat hid itself on Alan's flight suit. Bridget wondered why the house was still present then it suddenly dissipated.
- Based on the address and storyboards, the house is located in the Levittown suburbs of Long Island.
- In Ghostbusters Issue #8, Mr. Visitor's House is visually based on Mrs. Roger's House.
