Inside he learned all about the organization and how they constructed three robots and gave them to Genji Odashu, Ilongo Savage and Richard Carson, who were heroes at the time. McLauighlin later discovered a fourth unfinished robot and used spare parts to complete it. Calling his robot the Samurai Destroyer, he then set about to use the robot for his own personal gain.
