Deathlok is an advanced cyborg utilizing encephalonic read/write technology to link the human brain with a CPU. Deathlok’s brain is supported by organic lungs; which transport oxygen to his brain. The only other parts of the cyborg that are human are part of his skull and a modified human stomach. Deathlok’s sensitive stomach can only process simple nutrient formulas or pastes. His organic systems are supported by nanotech assemblers, which can repair damaged organics. The rest of the body is made up of synthetic parts. His skeleton is composed of unbreakable Adamantium, while his muscles and cartilage are a flexible steel/Adamantium alloy. His unique physical structure allows him to lift 85 tons with a theoretical limit of 150 tons; which is safeguarded by his computer preventing him from reaching his limit. Deathlok can run at speeds of 107 MPH on foot. The Cybernetic left eye is sensitive to a spectrum stretching above and below visible light, while his left cybernetic ear has directional cabilbities. Deathlok’s CPU is housed within his torso, and rests next to the controlled fusion generator which powers him.
Professor Michael Collins was the second Deathlok to be created in the modern era and also the second to be created for the traditional Marvel Universe; he was an African-American pacifist and family man working for the Roxxon Oil cybernetics corporation, whose brain was transplanted against his will into a robotic killing machine. Although his brain was intended to serve only as a medium for the robot's programming, he was able to assert his will over it (installing a "no-killing parameter" into its programming) and had a brief superheroic career as he desperately searched for his human body, hoping it still existed. This Deathlok's cyborg body first appeared in Marvel Comics Presents #62, and Collins' brain was placed in it in Deathlok #1. The brain connected to this cyborg body in the Marvel Comics Presents story was that of a soldier named John Kelly, whose mind was later transferred into another cyborg body and became the vigilante called Siege. Collins himself was later transported to an alien planet where he was forced to live on for years until being rescued with the aid of several other heroes. However, his rescue required the sacrifice of Greg Willis, the super hero known as Gravity. As a thank you, Collins arranged Gravity's funeral. When Willis' body was later stolen by a living, alien planet known as Epoch, Collins enlisted the aid of the Fantastic Four in retrieving it.
