Mad Thinker Awesome Replicoid (Marvel Comics)

“Awesome Replicoid”


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

Context

I think that this guy only appeared at the launch of the 1997 run of Thunderbolts. But he’s a handy, powerful, flexible combat robot.

“Awesome replicoid” is a made-up name based on previous Thinker androids, since it was not named in the story. Which is why we use it with quote marks.


Background

  • Group Affiliation: Servant of the (Mad) Thinker.
  • Base Of Operations: New York area.
  • Height: 9’ Weight: About 600 lbs.
  • Eyes: None Hair: None

Powers and Abilities

The “Awesome Replicoid” is a strong, durable android. When assaulted, it will split into a number of robots matching the number of his opponents (up to 6). Then the Splits will manifest different abilities as they morph  into more specialised forms.

At first they will seem to roughly mimic their opponent’s abilities (sword-hands against Citizen V’s blade, growth against Atlas, etc.). But this is a decoy – they can actually use whatever is more tactically appropriate. They seem to like bladed appendages, but will often grow wings, lightning projectors, stretch their limbs, etc..

The mass to do all that is presumably summoned extradimensionally.


History

The “Awesome Replicoid”is an example of a good Thinker android for the late 1990s or early 2000s. It was deployed against the Thunderbolts during a kidnapping attempt on Franklin Richards, shortly after the Onslaught incident .

The X-Factor that foiled the Thinker in that case was that the supposedly rookie heroes, the Thunderbolts, were actually the quite experienced and very well-led Masters of Evil.
