After Kristoff Vernard usurped the identity of Dr. Doom and ousted him from the throne, he decided to create his own Doombots, which could never be used against him. Using a line of research long abandoned as too dangerous by Doom, Kristoff began work on the first of these. For reasons unknown, Kristoff stopped and left before completing it. Somehow possessing the initiative to complete its construction in a manner it hoped would please its creator. As it continued to wait for its creator, it continued to improve itself. Eventually it somehow developed enough intelligence to resent being abandoned and it came to realize it no longer wished to please its creator. It fled Castle Doom, hiding out to avoid encountering the masters who could control it.
The Doombot, now calling itself Mechadoom, made a base outside Manhattan. It attempted to alter its own programming to prevent future control, but found it was unable to do so. It then began creating Doombot after Doombot, attempting to impart in them the independence it could not give itself. It was unsuccessful in doing this, as well. Mechadoom came to realize that there were a number of intelligent and independent robots and cyborgs out there it could learn from. It created the Capturebots, which it sent to...capture these beings. They succeeded in capturing Bushwacker, Forge, Jocasta, Machine Man, Ruby Thursday, Ultron-11, while others, including Coldblood and Misty Knight escaped them.
Misty recruited Deathlok to help investigate what was going on. Their battle against Mechadoom was eventually joined by several other heroes.
