Artificer has been on Earth for more than 5 centuries*. Its main purpose is to maintain the devices on earth that amplify the super power dampening signal that is broadcast from the moon. When the devices were not in need of repair, Artificer would go into a standby mode until needed. The last time that the Artificer was active was during WWII, when many of the devices were damaged as a result of wide scale destruction. Being active pretty much nonstop during the war time years, it began to learn about the beings that inhabited earth. It began to identify with some of them, and began to think of itself as more than just a simple repair robot.

Due to the “up and down” nature of the devices during this era, there were some super humans active during WWII. In fact, the U.S. formed a unit made up entirely of super soldiers. Artificer befriended the leader of the group, Captain “Madman” Collins, and on occasion, aided the group in several top secret missions behind enemy lines.

After the war, Artificer repaired the last of the Amplifiers, and retired to standby mode. When Armstrong deactivated the device on the Moon, Artificer was immediately activated to try and resolve the problem. Artificer spent the first six months trying to reactivate the device remotely, until it finally determined that the device was no longer located on the moon. Artificer decided that its best course of action would be to blend in with humanity by joining one of the several super hero groups.

The Artificer joined a group that began calling themselves “The Magnificent Seven”, and were based out of Kansas City, MO. It worked with the group for nearly 10 years, but over time it began to develop a need to discover its origins. So it left Earth, and traveled into space to search for the beings that had created it. It spent nearly 8 years away from Earth. After its many adventures in space, it was still unable to find its creators. It decided that he must return to Earth. It concluded that even though it could no longer fulfill its original programming, it would adjust its directive to be to directly protect the human race. Its line of reasoning was that protecting humans must have been the ultimate purpose of the machines in the first place. Humans, as a race, seem to want to destroy themselves, so he concluded that the ancients must have put the machines in place to prevent them from being able to do that very thing. Returning to Earth would ultimately just be a continuation of its programming. So returning to Earth was a logical conclusion, and return it has…
