Pinocchio was a cyborg. His original name was Ricky. He was a young boy whose family were killed. He joined the military in hopes of one day avenging them. He volunteered for the Lazarus Project in the belief it would give him enough power to gain revenge. It did but also turned him into a killer machine controlled by other people. Wolverine later rescued Ricky and had him reunited with his cousin Target/Ted.
