The Superman Robot wiki last edited by Darkside_of_the_Sun on 02/09/14 05:20PM View full history

Origin

Superman has had many robots that would help him keep his identity secret. At first the robots were just dummies, which he moved at super speed and he would throw his voice to make it seem like they were talking. Later on they became moving speaking robots, which could imitate Superman's powers. There have been many notable robots such as Ajax, Powerman, Adam Newman, and MacDuff. There is also a robot named Ned who watches Krypto in the Fortress.

Alternate versions

Superman: Red Son : Superman-Robots are actually brainwashed soviet citizens.

In All-Star Superman, more robotic looking Superman Robots assist Superman in the Fortress of Solitude. One of the Superman Robots, Superman Robot Seven, is hacked by Lex Luthor. When Superman manufactures an exogene serum that grants a human Kryptonian powers for twenty-four hours,Superman Robot Seven smuggles the formula to Luthor. Later, when Solaris the Tyrant Sun attacks the sun, Superman has the Robots shut down the Fortress of Solitude. One stays behind to guard it as the power turns off.. During the fight with Solaris, all Superman robots seen perish, including Superman Robot Seven, who is seeking redemption for betraying Superman.
