Twenty years ago, Earl Dukeston, then a young man building his empire of oil, was caught in an explosion at on of his wells. When he awoke, he was told that his human brain now occupied a robot body, and would continue to do so for the next twenty years while his rescuers cloned a duplicate of his human form, into which his human brain would then be transplanted. In return, they would receive a share of Dukestonís profits, and have access to any technology that Dukeston discovered. Dukeston agreed, convinced this was the only way he would ever again be fully human. Dukestonís mysterious benefactors were revealed to be SKULL who sent him to infiltrate the Outsiders.
