Luther Manning, aka the cyborg known as Deathlok, first appeared in 1974’s Astonishing Tales #25 by Rich Buckler and Doug Moench. Later, the character would be revived as computer programmer Michael Collins in Deathlok Vol. 1 by Dwayne McDuffie, Gregory Wright, and Jackson Guice.
When computer programmer Michael Collins learned his work for Roxxon was being used to develop the Deathlok Project, he was betrayed and had his brain placed into the body of the Deathlok cyborg! Initially used as a ruthless killing machine, Collins fought back against the Deathlok programming and regained his sentience. As Deathlok, Collins would go on to use his cybernetic enhancements to fight alongside heroes such as Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four!
