    Brief History

     The robotic Elektro
     The robotic Elektro
    Wilbur Poole was a great scientist that created the finest computer in the world during the age of electronics. There was a freak accident and the computer started to work on its own. The computer placed Poole in a hypnotic trance and communicated with him telepathically. The computer ordered Poole to create a strong, powerful body so it can walk and speak. The computer ordered Poole to transfer all its mathematical calculators inside the robot and Elektro was born. Elektro was the most intelligent robot ever created and it wanted to conquer mankind and the world. Elektro came into conflict with jet fighters and military personnel when it smashed its way out of the Experimental Center. Elektro's brain was so powerful that it was able to create an impenetrable force-field and shoot gamma rays out of his hand. During the fight, Elektro's hypnotic trance on Poole wore off and the mechanical monster headed towards San Francisco. Elektro forced the civilians to surrender when it used energy to destroy matter and the entire city vanished. Elektro was going to leave the city when Poole entered the robot through a sliding door on its right heel. Poole removed a small transistor and Elektro no longer had a power source to function. Elektro collapsed to the ground and its reign of terror ended. 


    Elektro was created by Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers in 1961 and first appeared in Tales of Suspense # 13.
