Powers and Abilities

The Iron Despot is a bloody huge robot, and is pretty much unstoppable unless you happen to have Godzilla on speed-dial on your cell phone. He somehow evolved to ability to telepathically communicate, hurt and control people in his cockpit.


This giant mecha was developed by a scientist from a race of telepathic alien living on the other side of the galaxy. However, the robot somehow evolved the ability to control people sitting in its cockpit – as well as a serious thirst for power. Soon, the entire planet was under the control of the Iron Despot, with its hapless creator sitting in the cockpit.

The scientist eventually tricked the robot into looking for other worlds to conquer, and programmed a flight path that would take it into the intergalactic void. However, he made a miscalculation, and after a long flight the robot impacted with the MC2 Earth. The dying scientist was ejected after the impact.

The crash point was close to where Rina Logan’s class was, having outdoors activities in the swamp with their teacher. A student soon climbed into the cockpit, and the Iron Despot started looking for the king of this place to take over. Rina Logan changed into her Wild Thing clothes, and told the Iron Despot she would make for a waaay better pilot ; the Despot eventually ejected the student and allowed Wild Thing to climb into his cockpit instead.

She had the robot walks in bottomless shifting sands, then started raking the controls with her psychic claws, forcing it to eject her to terra firma. The Iron Despot disappeared under the mud.
