Zirconium, Metal Men #2</p><p>114. Iridium, Metal Men #31</p><p>One robot stands out in the DC universe as the ultimate baddie and thats Brainiac. Brainiac</p><p>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</p></li><li><p>8/3/2019 DC vs Marvel Robots</p><p> 4/14</p><p>green skinned humanoid with studs in his head and wearing a pink yes pink outfit to being</p><p>made of metallic silver and looking a lot more robotic. For me the classic Brainiac will</p><p>always be the green guy with pink tights. This Brainiac went around shrinking cities and</p><p>putting them in bottles. The guy collected cities! I collected comic books and this guy is</p><p>collecting cities. How cool is that? One of the cities was Kandor which Superman</p><p>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</p><p>fun when I was a kid. Brainiac also had an indestructible force field that he could project</p><p>around himself via a belt or around his space ship. Superman could not penetrate this force</p><p>field and Brainiac was basically impervious to attack from Superman. Brainiac also teamed</p><p>up with Luthor on and off and of course each one tried to prove he was more brilliant than the</p><p>other. Brainiac had a twelfth level intellect which I guess is pretty smart.</p><p>I do want to mention the Metal Men. The Metal Men were a team of good robots that had</p><p>their high point in the sixties. The Metal Men included the Gold, Lead, Mercury, Platinum</p><p>and Tin and they premiered in Showcase #37 but soon got their own title. The one adjective I</p><p>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.</p><p>Platinum was female and of course was in love with her creator Dr. Magnus. This love was</p><p>not reciprocated and was an ongoing plot line.</p><p>The Metal Men mostly fought other robots which makes no sense whatsoever except that in</p><p>sixties logic the robot title should have lots of other robots. The Metal Men inhabited their</p><p>own little corner of DC robot land. The second most famous good robot in the DC universe</p><p>is the Red Tornado. The Red Tornado is a long standing member of the Justice League of</p><p>America and spent a lot of time spouting robotic angst about not being human. I really dont</p><p>like the Red Tornado at all. The name is stupid. The costume is stupid. The angst rhetoric is</p><p>forced and not well done. The Metal Men win!</p><p>DC has used robots for comic relief a great deal. The Metal Men were basically a funny tile</p><p>if you consider zany to be a shade of funny. DC did have at least one ongoing character that</p><p>was a funny robot. Star Hawkins was bumbling private eye of the future who first appeared</p><p>in Strange Adventures #114 in 1960. Ilda was his robot secretary and the brains of the team.</p><p>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</p><p>genres for extremely silly effect. This isnt even the silliest DC private eye title of this</p><p>period. That honor belongs to Detective Chimp. These silly early silver age DC titles do not</p><p>age well.</p><p>You have not one but three robot dogs: C.A.P.D. Robbie the Robot Dog and Thor the</p><p>Thunder Dog. Robot Man of course has to have Robbie the Robot Dog instead of a regular</p><p>dog. Why? No reason just more DC zaniness. Robbie can talk and Robot Man and Robbie</p><p>had some very surreal conversations. L-Ron is a robot that works for the Justice League and</p><p>is obsequious to the point of hilarity. Skeets is the side kick of Booster Gold and is not as</p><p>funny and L-Ron but has his moments. L-Ron wins the funny robot category in the DC</p><p>universe.</p><p>There are some pretty powerful robots in the DC universe including Amazo, who has all the</p><p>powers of the original Justice League of America but can absorb more powers beyond that.</p></li><li><p>8/3/2019 DC vs Marvel Robots</p><p> 5/14</p><p>The Shaggy Man is another scary robot who has vast strength and vast recuperative powers</p><p>and is a mindless fighter who can take on the whole Justice League at the same time.</p><p>For sheer weirdness, G.I. Robot is probably the winner in the DC universe. G.I. Robot is a</p><p>robot that runs around in standard G.I. gear. This is a mix of science fiction and the war</p><p>comic genre. Not a lot of companies have the guts to mix these two genres and perhaps thisis just as well.</p><p>The winner of the best evil robot is clearly Brainiac. The winner of best robot hero is not a</p><p>hero but the Metal Men group as a whole. The funniest robot is L-Ron.</p><p>List of Marvel Robots</p><p>1. Acidroid, Earth-616, Cable #65</p><p>2.
