Real Name: Max Zenga
Affiliations: Julius Caine
Known Relatives: None
Base of Operations: Unknown.
First Appearance: The Prisoner of Zenga, Valiant (I.P.C., 1975)
Powers/Abilities: As well as being very strong and, I assume, resistant to injury, the robot was capable of firing beams of force from its eyes.
History: Arch criminal Max Zenga's brain was implanted in the body of a fantastic robot. Laboratory assistant Julian Caine, who had planned to use the robot to rob the fabulously wealthy residents of a block of highly guarded flats and then escape from it, instead became Zenga's slave.
Comments: I'm not sure if Zenga was willingly transplanted into the robot, or if his brain was salvaged from his dead or injured body, or some other explanation is true. I'm also uncertain as to the origins of the robot. I don't have the issues which cover this part of the story, so if anyone out there knows, please get in touch.
How much of Zenga's mind survives in his new body is also unclear. The robot is able to communicate after a fashion, but its words are slurred. Whether this is down to poor vocal design or poor understanding of the words isn't obvious.
Any Additions/Corrections? Please let me know.
