Walking Stiletto from A.I.M. (Captain America enemy) (Marvel Comics) vs. Sharon Carter

Walking Stiletto


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

A.I.M. leader : “We will waste no more time ! Release the *Walking Stiletto* !!”
Sharon Carter : “A giant robot ! Another of A.I.M.’s deadly mechanical weapons ! And it’s coming straight at me !”

Context

The Stiletto was chiefly seen in a 1969 issue of Captain America. It’s a non-entity, but it’s also an excellent example of a Silver Age  Marvel-style combat robot. So having stats for it is good.

Background

  • Group Affiliation: A.I.M..
  • Base Of Operations: Unrevealed A.I.M. base.
  • Height: 8’ Weight: 800 lbs.
  • Eyes: None Hair: None


Powers and Abilities

The Walking Stiletto is a tough humanoid combat robot. It has blades for hands, and a blast ray projector built into its forehead.

It is well-armoured against all sorts of assaults. But if an attack does get through the plating it will likely inflict severe damage.


History

Distraught by Captain America’s recent death, S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Sharon Carter became reckless. During a mission, she launched into a foolhardy assault against a council of A.I.M. leaders. She performed well – but one of the A.I.M. leaders released the Walking Stiletto, which proved impervious to her weapons.

But Captain America wasn’t dead. He charged in, along with Bucky (Rick Jones), to save Carter. Thanks to some sharply focused teamwork, they eventually managed to bring the Walking Stiletto down.

Years later, the Walking Stiletto was somehow salvaged and repaired by the Reanimator, only to be vanquished again by Wolverine. Several copies of the robot may exist, though.


Description

For some reason, the Reanimator had the Walking Stiletto repainted green after repairing it. Maybe he likes green.


Personality

A silent, relentless combat machine.
