“I will not deliberately kill another human being — not while I have another choice.”
“To be honest, I feel more comfortable with robots — and yet I kill them on a regular basis.”
“I am Magnus — and I fight for HUMANITY !”
Magnus was born in North Am, a super-city that encompasses the entirety of the North American continent, and his parents remain unknown. He was found by a very old robot named 1A, who raised the child. With North Am under the control of an AI dictator named H8, 1A decided to train the young boy, who he named Magnus, to be able to do battle with robots. One such technique included a fighting technique that allows him to break metal with his bare hands. A1 also provided Magnus with a special device that allowed him to hear robot-to-robot communication, giving him an edge in information gathering. As a result, Magnus fought both evil robots who would enslave humans and humans who would use robots for evil. Later Magnus met Leeja Clane and the two fell in love.
Magnus teamed with other heroes from the 20th century during the Unity event, during which he was in a place outside of normal time and space dubbed The Lost Land. This allowed him to meet members of Harbinger, as well as X-O Manowar, Solar, Shadowman and other super-powered beings like himself. In fact, two members of Harbinger (John “Torque” Torkelson and Kris Hathaway) were actually the parents of Magnus. When Geoff McHenry (the Geomancer) informed Kris that her baby was needed in the far future to save humanity as the Robot Fighter, Kris tearfully allowed the Geomancer and Solar to transport her child to the 41st century.
