Deathlok # 1
( May, 1990 )


Michael Collins was a computer programmer working for Roxxon Oil. He thought that his program for artificial limb was going to be used to help disabled people, not knowing that it was actually being used for the Deathlok Project. After he found out about his work being used for the initiation of a killing machine, he complained to his acquaintance and emboss, Harlan Ryker, not knowing that Ryker was behind the Deathlok Project. Ryker betrayed Collins and had his genius placed into the Deathlok cyborg body. When Michael awoke, he found himself in the cyborg body, but unable to control it. The Deathlok cyborg was then tested, and Michael watched in horror, unable to do anything, as his cyborg body killed a pair of soldiers. finally, Michael gained control of the Deathlok cyborg and set out to find Harlan Ryker and make him pay for what he had done to Michael. Michael caught up with Ryker as he was making illegal weapons sales to a individual army. Before Michael turned Ryker over to the authorities, he found out that his homo body still existed, somewhere. much later, Deathlok was discovered on a new Battleworld on which he had been trapped for years. Collins helped fellow super-powered individuals, Dr. Pym, Wasp, Spider-Man, Venom, Hood, Gravity, Firebird, Medusa, and Al Kraven, battle the Dragon Man and the Space Phantom who was impersonating Spider-Man. The Stranger was revealed as the one behind bringing them there, and ultimately they were able to escape.

Cyborg Physiology: Inspired by the original, this Deathlok similarly possesses a variety show of superhuman attributes as a result of extensive cybernetic augmentation .

  • Encephalonic Technology: Considered as the most crucial component to the greatest versatile weapon in history, the name is a contraction of two words Encephalic(Meaning “Within The Head”) and Technological(Meaning “A capable and advanced use of technology.”). Encephalonic allows the use of an organic brain to store information that can be accessed by the Main Computer and Operation System. At this point the storage capability of the human brain is literally incalculable.
  • Computer Brain: Much of Deathlok’s brain has been replaced with an extremely efficient A.I. System, titled “Computer”, granting him greater levels of intelligence, knowledge in strategic warfare, hand-to-hand and weapons combat. This also allows him to communicate, and manipulate by interfacing with almost any other computer base systems such as other cyborgs or robots. On top of that Computer can be given full control to accomplish objectives and feats more efficiently.
  • Artificial Eyes and Ears: A common misconception is that Deathlok’s right eye and ear are completely organic, this is of course false, though his left eye and ear are much more advanced. The unit’s left eye is sensitive to a spectrum stretching both above and below the visible light. When in active scanning mode, it can also emit and detect variable frequency EM Radiation and Neutrinos. The left ear has directional capabilities along with both audio and visible input which is routinely digitized and stored for future access. Both can be further enhanced to greater levels.
  • Superhuman Durability: Other than the previously mention organic systems, this unit is of entirely artificial construct. The skeleton is pure Adamantium, tooled to mimic the full human range of motion. The muscles and cartilage are composed of an extremely impact-resistant custom Elastic-Adamantium-Steel mix to purposely promote athletic movement.
  • Superhuman Strength: Deathlok possesses great superhuman strength and is currently able to lift approximately 85 tons. However, his design has the capacity to potentially lift as much as 150 tons.
  • Superhuman Speed: Despite his great size and bulk, Deathlok is capable of running and moving at speeds considerably greater than even the finest human athlete. He can reach a top speed of 110 miles per hour.
  • Superhuman Stamina: Deathlok has stated that his: “Cyborg body doesn’t get tired but the Human brain does.” Deathlok’s artificial musculature produces considerably less fatigue toxins during physical activity than the natural musculature of an ordinary human. He can exert himself at peak capacity for about 24 hours before fatigue begins to impair him.
  • Superhuman Agility: Despite his massive size, Deathlok’s agility, balance, and bodily coordination are enhanced to levels that are beyond the natural physical limits of even the finest human athlete.
  • Superhuman Reflexes: Deathlok’s reaction time is enhanced to a level that is beyond the natural physical limits of the finest human athlete.
  • Healing: The nanites within Deathlok are able to repair his organic systems rapidly.[2]


  • Genius Intelligence: Deathlok is an excellent computer programmer. Deathlok’s on-board computer system contains the downloaded contents in excess of 17 Cray mainframe computers and can provide him with detailed information on a wide variety of subjects. Through his downloads, Deathlok has gained a broad knowledge of hand-to-hand combat techniques, as well as detailed knowledge in the use of conventional and technologically advanced firearms.[7]


Despite his cybernetic enhancements, Deathlok is inactive vulnerable to certain human needs. He hush requires oxygen to breathe, and needs to sleep. He besides requires nourishment, but his simplify digestive system is only adequate to of absorbing nutrients in a molten phase.



He has a plasma pistol built into his body that takes its exponent from his internal plasma reactor. He besides carries in a built-in back-pack, and has access to a plasma assault rifle and plasma grenade launcher .


  • The character was somewhat of a reference to the book The Souls of Black Folk.
  • The song “Psychotron”, by American heavy metal band Megadeth, is a homage to Deathlok.
  • After a scuffle with Iron Man, he was offered a job at Stark Enterprises based on his talent and sense of ethics.[8]
