Zombots (Wildstorm comics) (WildCATS enemies)

Zombots


Context

Techno-zombies with guns used as enforcers. Seen in WildC.A.T. comics. Simple and useful.


History

Those are used by the mob. They where first met by the WildCATs during a sting operation to trap Maxine “Ladytron” Manchester.

Masses of zombots where used against the WildCATs by the New York City mob bosses when the WildCATs declared their war on crime.


Powers and Abilities

Re-animated dead guys. The zombots are relatively cheap, voice-controlled, disposable hitmen/bodyguards for hire. They are controlled by micro-electronic implants, but are completely useless if not issued orders.

Apparently they can be hired from their unknown builder for a weekly cost, or the technology can be bought. That implies a steep premium, but once the initial cost has been swallowed individual zombots are reasonably cheap.

Hence, people will tend to either have large number of zombots in reserve, or just one or two for a given operation.

Zombots have demonstrated the capacity to crash through concrete walls. They also proved difficult for Max Cash to bring down with firearms. Usually a full clip in the head was needed.


Description

See illustration.


Personality

None whatsoever. They’re dead.


DC Universe History

I dimly remember having seen techno-zombies in the DCU before, but can’t place them.
