30 Characters: #5 – Doctor Automaton
Dr. Karl Krazinski was the leading mind in the field of robotics and cyber electronics. His discoveries and inventions were considered unparalleled. He held hundreds of patents and was filthy rich because of it.
Several years ago he was contracted by the US Government to help create prototype battle robots, known as Drones. During the final presentation it was clear, however, that the Drones were dramatically inferior to Dr. Krazinski’s rival robotics engineer, Dr. Terrance Tomo. Dr. Tomo was awarded the contract and Dr. Krazinski’s company was on the verge of collapse.
Determined to create the next best thing in automated battle robots Krazinski buried himself in his work. His creation, a 30 foot tall nuclear killing machine called Devestation, set out to destroy Dr. Tomo who had, by this time, been recruited into Program 402. After a fierce battle that flattened several city blocks…Tomo’s battle robots finally destroyed Devestation. As it turned out….Dr. Kazinski himself was inside the giant machine and his body was broken. His cockpit, which was also an escape pod, teleported back to Krazinski’s lab and his automatons went to work repairing his body. By the time they finished…poor Karl was nothing more than a face, a brain and a partial spinal column in a large jar. He became known at that time as Dr. Automoton and vowed to take revenge!
He converted one of his drones into a battle suit which his head unit connects into. The deadly suit has many modular components that can be swapped out. His available mods include blasters, rocket shoes, giant knives and more. He is a deadly villain who will stop at nothing to take back what he feels is his rightful place as the worlds leading robotics expert.
