The Cyborg was powered by a microwave energizer hidden beneath his skin. He has superhuman strength (Class 10?) and durability (though easily susceptible to short-circuit if exposed to water), and he can emit blinding light from his eyes and walk straight up sheer walls.
MODOK sent a pair of assassins, A-12 and A-14, to attack Captain America, knowing they would meet defeat. Upon their return, he had A-14 eliminated and then offered A-12 the choice of death or the cyborg experiment; he chose the latter. AIM technicians swiftly rebuilt him into a powerful cyborg totally obedient to MODOK, who sent him to rob a bank as a test of his power. MODOK then arranged to have the Cyborg ambush Captain America via a false SHIELD assignment; Sharon Carter realized it was a trap and tried to fend him off first, but she was no match for the Cyborg. Captain America arrived seconds later, fighting the Cyborg as well as the numerous traps set up in the building. Eventually Captain America goaded the Cyborg into striking a water pipe, and the Cyborg was short-circuited. Without his energizer functioning, the Cyborg was easily overpowered by Captain America.
