Powers/Abilities: Originally, Jason Todd possessed no superhuman powers but was a skilled hand-to-hand combatant and possessed keen detective skills. After his transformation into the cyborg known as Deathlok, Jason Todd's abilities, including his strength, were enhanced to superhuman levels.
Wayne: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. #1 (bts)) - Young
S.H.I.E.L.D. recruit Jason Todd had a
bright future with the international crime-fighting agency. He was
personally mentored by both S.H.I.E.L.D. Director
Bruce Wayne and Moonwing (Dick
Grayson). Although Todd was sometimes reckless, he was
nonetheless chosen to become the new Moonwing when Dick Grayson temporarily
left S.H.I.E.L.D. to attend Oxford University.
(Dark Claw: The Murder
Gag) - As the new Moonwing, Jason Todd made a careless mistake
that resulted in the death of another S.H.I.E.L.D. agent. Summarily
dismissed from the ranks of S.H.I.E.L.D., Jason Todd became furious with
his mentors and blamed them for his disgrace. Soon after, Jason Todd
was caught in an explosion when the psychotic villain known as
Hyena (Creed H. Quinn) detonated a bomb
in an attempt to kill Bruce Wayne and Dark Claw
(Logan Wayne). Although his body was never recovered,
S.H.I.E.L.D. presumed that Jason Todd died in the bomb blast.
(Bruce Wayne: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. #1 (bts)) - But Jason Todd
survived -- barely. He was left broken and gasping for life under the
rubble of a building. His body was recovered by agents of the criminal
organization known as Hydra and his damaged body parts were replaced with
robotic parts, transforming Jason Todd into the cyborg known as Deathlok.
As Deathlok, Jason Todd became an agent of Hydra.
(Bruce Wayne: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. #1) - "Mission: Destroy Hydra!" - Inside the Green Skull's Hydra Base Omega, Deathlok participated in a coup led by Madame Cat (Selina Luthor) to overthrow Lex Luthor as Supreme Hydra. Deathlok looked on as Madame Cat seemingly killed her father by strangling him with her whip and then pledged allegiance to her as the new Supreme Hydra.
as S.H.I.E.L.D. agents attempted to launch a ground assault against Hydra
Base Omega, Deathlok was one of the Hydra agents sent to engage the invading
forces. On the battlefield, Deathlok soon spotted his former mentor
Moonwing (Dick Grayson) and attacked him from behind. Deathlok revealed
that he had been waiting a long time to destroy both Dick Grayson and Bruce
Wayne. Unmasking Moonwing, Deathlok accused Grayson and Wayne of abandoning
him. Using his superhuman strength, Deathlok began to strangle Moonwing
because he wanted to see Dick Grayson broken and gasping (just as Jason Todd
was left after the Hyena's bomb exploded). But before Deathlok was
able to kill Moonwing, Colonel Nick Fury
and Sergeant Joe Rock commandeered an
aircraft and shot Deathlok several times in the back. Although he felt
sorry for Jason Todd, Dick Grayson once again left him for dead so that he
could continue the assault on Hydra Base Omega.

DARK CLAW: THE MURDER
GAG graphic novel is an Amalgam
Universe version of DC's BATMAN: THE KILLING
Given his cybernetic physiology, it is unlikely that Jason
Todd was actually killed when he was shot in the back in
BRUCE WAYNE: AGENT OF S.H.I.E.L.D.
Special thanks to writer Chuck Dixon for clarifying the component sources of Deathlok (Jason Todd).
Todd)] WAS intended as a three-way amalgam.

Also assume that the Amalgam characters have no other connection to any others than whom they are Amalgamated, unless specifically mentioned.
Deathlok is an amalgam of:
Midnight of Earth-616, Jeffrey "Jeff" Wilde, @ Moon Knight (vol. III) #4
Deathlok of Earth-616, Luther Manning, @ Astonishing Tales #25
Robin of the mainstream DC Universe,
Jason Peter Todd, @ Batman #366
No known connections to, and not to be confused with
Deathborg, robotic member of the Sinister
Society, @ Magnetic Men Featuring Magneto #1
