The robot possessed superhuman strength (Class 80), endurance and invulnerability. It could operate in extremely hostile environmental conditions of weather, pressure, temperature and threats, from the outer space, to underwater and high gravity planets, for very long periods of time. He had a multi-laser gun on its right arm. It could swim underwater using its energy blasters as thrusters while carrying a weight of several tons. It also had a photonic disintegrator in its mouth which it could only use once every minute.
In its second incarnation it had a vocal synthesizer which allowed it to communicate, and its right laser arm was a little longer and could also fire tachionic blasts.
In its third incarnation it was sort of a cyborg, interconnected to a human/Kree body. Its appearance had changed, it had two identical arms and it could emit tachionic blasts from its eyebrows. It could access to and use some teleportational devices. Its ability of communicating had improved to a normal human level, probably due to its connection to a human body.
In its fourth incarnation it was still connected to Korman, but had received several updates from AIM to all its systems.
It had a little spot on its nape where a manual control switch that could shut all its systems off was hidden.
Connected to Korman it still had some thin spots in its nape that could be used to insert little objects, bodies or energy into its body. There those could be used to damage the vulnerable inside parts. Its human reactions/needs/feelings could be used against it, to distract or to drive him to perform errors. Its endurance was not superhuman anymore. It needed a Kree empowered body as power source.
After further enhancements to its systems by AIM its body wasn't as resistant to damage anymore.
virtually indestructible robot created by Dr. Kronton in order to steal cobalt bomb and blackmail the USA, initially defeated by Silver Surfer, later revived by Kree Psyche-Magnitron, battled and destroyed by Ms. Marvel, rebuilt by AIM and merged with Kerwin Korman, whom it used as a power source, battled Avengers, sought Warbird as replacement when Kerwin began to weaken, destroyed by Justice, remnants used as life support for Korman.
