Death's Head (Marvel)(04 - 3.0)

The third version of Death's Head was introduced in a five-part storyline within the pages of Marvel's anthology series Amazing Fantasy, beginning in #16 (February 2006). Written by Death's Head creator Simon Furman and drawn by James Raiz, the story is set 1000 years in the future and does not appear to be directly linked to the previous Death's Head stories.

Advanced Idea Mechanics are set to make peace with the UN and become a legitimate non-terrorist organization. Hardliner AIM Senior Scientist Patricia Goddard has decided to stop the peace treaty and force AIM back underground by assassinating the UN Secretary-General, using a mysterious alien cyborg in AIM's possession codenamed Death's Head. Powered and given intelligence by an artificial variant on the Uni-Power, the cyborg is sent out in to the field with pre-programmed objectives, but the clash between its murderous inclinations and an instinctive desire to help people leave it unsure what side it wants to be on.

The final panel of the Death's Head 3.0 story concludes with an image of the cyborg with mouth horns, alluding to the original Death's Head. It is mentioned as now operating as a deniable troubleshooter for the GEIST organization (Global Enforcement/Intelligence Symposium Taskforce), carrying out operations they can't be officially involved in for political reasons.

This incarnation went on to appear on Sakaar, during the Planet Hulk series. Similar models are used by the Hulk as soldiers during the ongoing World War Hulk story and one is used an AIM courier in MODOK's 11 by Monica Rappaccini.

It is implied in Simon Furman's introduction in the second Death's Head collection that this incarnation is actually a precursor to the original Death's Head, and that he would one day like to round the series off in one big 'loop'.
