Powers/Abilities: The Time-Bot contained rockets in its feet which allowed it to fly, and was made of durable materials which could easily withstand small arms fire. It could also generate a force field which could repel even Mjolnir. The chest plate of the Time-Bot contained a Time-Ray which could transport whatever entered the ray's path to somewhere else in time, often casting the person or object in question back into prehistory. The Time-Bot could also recover whatever it sent elsewhere in time.

History: (Thor I#409) - After two small-time hoods who had been outfitted with advanced weapons by Dr. Doom were captured by the police, Doom sent his Time-Bot to break the two of them out, only so that he could draw the attention of Thor. Lt. Marc Stone led the officers of the local precinct in attacking the Time-Bot, but it was immune to their weapons. Thor soon arrived with Hercules to attack the Time-Bot, and when Thor hurled Mjolnir at the Time-Bot, it fired its time-ray at Mjolnir, causing it to disappear. Dr. Doom and the Time-Bot then departed the scene.

(Thor I#410) - Doom brought his Time-Bot to Latveria, where he had it release Mjolnir and place it within a null gravity field so that he could siphon energies from Mjolnir to stop time, hoping he would finally be able to overthrow Kristoff Vernard. Hercules, She-Hulk and Eric Masterson soon appeared to reclaim Mjolnir, and Masterson faced the Time-Bot in battle. He managed to catapult himself over the Time-Bot, and dived straight for Mjolnir. By grasping Mjolnir, he caused Doom's machine to explode, and the explosion destroyed the Time-Bot as well.
