    Professor Philo Zog was a philanthropist and humanitarian that created a wonder robot he called Electro. His robot was under the control of Professor Zog and his twelve assistants via remote control electra-wave thought impulse and television apparatus. Professor Zog would send Electro on various missions to help civilians in need, to stop evil dictators and extraterrestrial threats like Jago and his Dragon Men. Professor Zog however also used Electro to help the allied forces when World War II started.

    The Twelve - Left Behind

    It was during the end days of World War II that Professor Zog's controlled robot was sent to a Nazi bunker in Berlin with other superheroes, wanting to inspect the bunker. While the heroes all entered the bunker,  a trap spun locking the chamber from the outside world. This lock-down caused the immediate failing of the transmission that Professor Zog used to control Electro. The robot froze and did not give any sings of 'life'. Nothing was heard from the professor again after this point and it is unknown how he lived out the rest of his days, or if he is still alive.
    Years later, in 2007, when the Electro robot and the other heroes where found alive, it was revealed that Professor Zog had been a very lonly person. He had made Electro come alive via his very own brain-patterns, so that he would never truly be alone anymore. However, when Electro was cut off from Professor Zog's control, the robot had become lonely too and had been seeking out contact with other machinery for almost 7 decades.
