The secrets of Destruct-O-Tron revealed!!!
Okay, so the last time I did a Destruct-O-Tron profile, there was a lot of shit we didn’t know about him. For example, now we know what he looks like under the helmet (see above). And we know his first name is Todd (courtesy of Super Haters #61). Those are the two biggies.
But we’ve learned some other stuff too, and most of it came from the Kids story arc when his sister, Destruct-O-Bot, proved that he’s a crybaby and a liar.
And in today’s comic, Super Haters #84, it’s pretty obvious that he’s a horny bastard. As we move into the future, keep an eye out for Super Haters #100, which will showcase a MAJOR Destruct-O-Tron moment.
In terms of the character’s creation and background, one of my favorite super heroes is War Machine, so Destruct-O-Tron pulls from Rhodey (as well as Tony Stark). In my eyes, he’s a parody of both of them.
