Powers/Abilities: Aquanoids are constructed to serve effectively both underwater and in the air, being both water-resistant and possessing jet in their feet. Aquanoids can also fire energy blasts from their wrists (they do not have hands), and possess limited combat sensors. Their greatest advantage is that they travel in large numbers, as AIM had at one point enough Aquanoids to apparently surround the entirety of AIM Island.

History: (Captain America I#414)- As Captain America, Diamondback, the Falcon and Shang-Chi attempted to escape AIM Island, flying towards the ocean, an army of Aquanoids rose up from the ocean, forming a line that stretched as far as the eye could see to block their path of escape. When the heroes refused to stand down, the robots opened fire on them, and shot down Shang-Chi's skiff and Captain America's skycycle. The Falcon continued to battle the robots from the air, while Captain America used a cable gun from the skycycle to latch onto one of the robots and rejoin the fight.

The heroes were soon joined by Captain America's pilot, Zach Moonhunter, aboard Cap's flagship "Freedom's Flight." Moonhunter brought down several of the Aquanoids by firing EMP bombs, and then brought the four heroes aboard the ship. The Aquanoids set after the ship in pursuit, but they were destroyed by a S.H.I.E.L.D. vessel commanded by Nick Fury.











Comments: Created by Mark Gruenwald, Rik Levins, MC Wyman, and Danny Bulanadi.

The name "Aquanoids" was assigned to the robots by the Falcon. Their official AIM designation is not known.
