Irongate Universe #8
|Real Name: Prototype 8 |
Born in: USA
Ethical alliance: Good
The US Government has been secretly working on AI technology for years, and had a breakthrough, some ten years ago. The first prototype looked promising. It did basic commands, but had flaws which needed to be addressed. It took another 5 years and several prototypes for success to finally be achieved.
Prototype #8 was the result. It has state-of-the-art abilities, enabling it to interphase with any form of technology. It possesses a stealth-mode infiltration system that enables it to access the most secure installations, where it can retrieve and even rewrite information without anyone detecting its presence.
Prototype 8's true purpose and complete abilities are kept top secret, and a facade has been created for the general public. Under the guise of Americyber, it has become a symbol of the American way.
By having it become a member of the Unbelievable Superhuman Alliance (U.S.A), it shows off to the world US advancements and ingenuity. Its secondary purpose is to see how it performs with others and how it handles unexpected situations.
As it is, by interacting with its team members, Americyber has begun to develop a better understanding of itself, and has started to ask questions about missions. It also seems to have taken a particular interest in its teammate, Ustara.
Technopathy: Americyber is a walking computer that can access any technology and dominate it.
Super strength: Its android body can lift 2 tons and is very durable.
Flight: It can fly and reach Mach 1 speed.
Energy blasts: It is armed with energy blasts that can be released through its hands.
