Invincible Robots

Destroy ! Destroy !! DESTROY !!!!


Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game

“Their memory banks contain but one single thought… Destroy ! Destroy ! DESTROY !!!”


Context

This is a particularly dangerous kind of combat robot, built by Doctor Doom during the late 1960s.


Background

  • Group Affiliation: Agents of Doctor Doom
  • Base Of Operations: Latveria
  • Height: Unrevealed Weight: Unrevealed


Powers and Abilities

Those ferocious robots are physically quite powerful, and armored enough to resist even advanced weapons. They are programmed to fight, and quite efficient at this.

Even when destroyed, their scattered parts will still attempt to hurt their opponents, making it extremely hard to be rid of them even for those powerful enough to destroy them.

The second generation robots are less durable, but can fly and shoot energy blasts.


History

The Invincible Robots, also known as Killer Robots or Super Robots, are among the numerous creations of Doctor Doom. He was aided by the ex-Nazi scientist Hauptman.

A group of those is considered by all to be a very potent weapon, perfect for an all-out fight – although they are hard to control due to their destructive mores. They have been used against rebellious Latverians, the Fantastic Four (and even both at once, back when Doom had the depowered FF live in a Latverian village and unleashed the killer robots on the whole lot) and other assorted menaces.

At one point, Prince Zorba even sent them after Doom, who was coming back to reclaim the throne, and the FF.

The Invincible Robots attack Guardian Robots in Latveria

The second generation killer robots were deployed during the Acts of Vengeance operation, and thoroughly thrashed Hydro-Base and most of the heavy equipment on it, sinking the whole lot.

Thankfully, Quasar made sure there was no loss of life during the vicious fight between the artificial island’s residents and the robots.


Description

See illos.


Personality

Mindlessly aggressive, and unable to restrain their destructive urges for long. Even for their masters, they should be handled like so much pure nitro.
