    One robot stands out in the DC universe as the ultimate baddie and thats Brainiac. Brainiac

    is so famous that the word is now derogatory slang for someone who is too brainy. Brainiachas changed from the golden age and is currently human. Brainiac also changed from being

  • 8/3/2019 DC vs Marvel Robots

    4/14

    green skinned humanoid with studs in his head and wearing a pink yes pink outfit to being

    made of metallic silver and looking a lot more robotic. For me the classic Brainiac will

    always be the green guy with pink tights. This Brainiac went around shrinking cities and

    putting them in bottles. The guy collected cities! I collected comic books and this guy is

    collecting cities. How cool is that? One of the cities was Kandor which Superman

    confiscated and kept in his Fortress of Solitude. Kandor was the source of many, manyadventures with the Superman family in the silver age which seem silly now but were great

    fun when I was a kid. Brainiac also had an indestructible force field that he could project

    around himself via a belt or around his space ship. Superman could not penetrate this force

    field and Brainiac was basically impervious to attack from Superman. Brainiac also teamed

    up with Luthor on and off and of course each one tried to prove he was more brilliant than the

    other. Brainiac had a twelfth level intellect which I guess is pretty smart.

    I do want to mention the Metal Men. The Metal Men were a team of good robots that had

    their high point in the sixties. The Metal Men included the Gold, Lead, Mercury, Platinum

    and Tin and they premiered in Showcase #37 but soon got their own title. The one adjective I

    would use to describe the Metal Men is zany! They were shape shifters and had thepersonality traits of their respective metal. Mercury was volatile. Lead was steady and so on.

    Platinum was female and of course was in love with her creator Dr. Magnus. This love was

    not reciprocated and was an ongoing plot line.

    The Metal Men mostly fought other robots which makes no sense whatsoever except that in

    sixties logic the robot title should have lots of other robots. The Metal Men inhabited their

    own little corner of DC robot land. The second most famous good robot in the DC universe

    is the Red Tornado. The Red Tornado is a long standing member of the Justice League of

    America and spent a lot of time spouting robotic angst about not being human. I really dont

    like the Red Tornado at all. The name is stupid. The costume is stupid. The angst rhetoric is

    forced and not well done. The Metal Men win!

    DC has used robots for comic relief a great deal. The Metal Men were basically a funny tile

    if you consider zany to be a shade of funny. DC did have at least one ongoing character that

    was a funny robot. Star Hawkins was bumbling private eye of the future who first appeared

    in Strange Adventures #114 in 1960. Ilda was his robot secretary and the brains of the team.

    Ilda provided consistent comic relief in a manner similar to Rosie the Robot in The Jetsons.As I have pointed out in other posts in this series, DC has a much greater willingness to mix

    genres for extremely silly effect. This isnt even the silliest DC private eye title of this

    period. That honor belongs to Detective Chimp. These silly early silver age DC titles do not

    age well.

    You have not one but three robot dogs: C.A.P.D. Robbie the Robot Dog and Thor the

    Thunder Dog. Robot Man of course has to have Robbie the Robot Dog instead of a regular

    dog. Why? No reason just more DC zaniness. Robbie can talk and Robot Man and Robbie

    had some very surreal conversations. L-Ron is a robot that works for the Justice League and

    is obsequious to the point of hilarity. Skeets is the side kick of Booster Gold and is not as

    funny and L-Ron but has his moments. L-Ron wins the funny robot category in the DC

    universe.

    There are some pretty powerful robots in the DC universe including Amazo, who has all the

    powers of the original Justice League of America but can absorb more powers beyond that.

    5/14

    The Shaggy Man is another scary robot who has vast strength and vast recuperative powers

    and is a mindless fighter who can take on the whole Justice League at the same time.

    For sheer weirdness, G.I. Robot is probably the winner in the DC universe. G.I. Robot is a

    robot that runs around in standard G.I. gear. This is a mix of science fiction and the war

    comic genre. Not a lot of companies have the guts to mix these two genres and perhaps thisis just as well.

    The winner of the best evil robot is clearly Brainiac. The winner of best robot hero is not a

    hero but the Metal Men group as a whole. The funniest robot is L-Ron.
