Robotic duplicates

Postby Stephen Day » Thu Sep 04, 2014 4:23 pm

I bought Batman '66 #14. The issue featured the adventures of the Robot Batman, a temporary replacement for Batman. The story was fun, but made me think of other times where there have been artificial duplicates of various characters. The one that comes to mind immediately would be the old LMD Zodiac story from West Coast Avengers back in the 80s. There, a new LMD Sagittarius appeared and he was an exact duplicate of Hawkeye.

Any stories of this type that you remember and liked, or couldn't stand? I await your responses. :)

Those types of stories never stuck in my head that much. I'd have to scour my feeble brain.

Though not the same because they were more like "people" I did like some of the ways that Peter David handled Madrox's dups in X-Factor.

All I can think of is that Nick Fury of SHIELD graphic novel/mini-series in the late 80s where the LMDs went nuts and took over... or tried to.

""Timey" what? "Timey wimey"?"

Yeah not quite the same, but not that far off either. How did he handle the dups, and what did you like about the way he did it?

That was Nick Fury vs S.H.I.E.L.D. wasn't it?

Yes, I believe that was it. Never thought much of it, but it did launch the series again at that time.

Alan Moore's Supreme played with the trope. I don't remember the exact details of the story, but I think it involved one of the hero's robot doubles falling in love with a robot double of the character's Golden Age girlfriend (the Lois Lane stand-in).

Doctor Doom, of course, and his Doombots

'Cyborg Rangers', an episode of Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue, involves the titular team being replaced by soulless androids and it going shockingly wrong. It's my very favorite episode of the series ever.

Before that series, I kind of thought of Madrox's dups as robot duplicates that would act independently but basically just be an extension of himself. The series had each dup developing personalities, sometimes having different aspects of Madox's personality. A couple of them did not want to re-integrate back into him. One of them also lived a long and fruitful life away from Madrox.

Never cared for 90% of the stories that had Doombots in them.

My favorite was Kingdom Come. If you remember Batman was too old to go out and fight crime, so he used giant Bat-Robots to keep Gotham safe. He used them to hunt down Fat Albert and his gang. :smt005
