Powers/Abilities: Uber-Machine was a normal human being. However, when in his armor, Uber-Machine possessed super strength to an unknown degree, but enough to knock out the Rhino when the two collided (although he was also knocked out). He may or may not have had other abilities granted to him by his armor.
History: Nothing is known of Uber-Machine's history prior to his first encounter with Spider-Man.
(Peter Parker: Spider-Man II #50) - Hammerhead started a gang-war that involved the Jamaican, Polish, Italian, Chinese, Colombian, Korean, French and Japanese Mafias, and the Polish hired the Rhino and Uber-Machine to do their bidding. Uber-Machine was a murderous psycho in a huge armor suit who had no qualms about killing. 4 panels after his 1st appearance, Spidey drove him and the Rhino against each other, knocking them both down for the count. His armor wasted, he was put in jail. It ended up that Hammerhead planned it all so that Spidey could take out a few rival gangs and all the members of his organization that were causing him trouble.

Ragnodimaggio explains the meaning of Uber-Machine's name:
"uber-mensch" (Nietzsche) means
"super-man" or "man above the others", word probably
used once to define Master-Man, but I'm not sure. So
"Uber-Machine" means "super-machine" or
"hyper-machine". Sure a Super-Machine is supposed to
make a better entreé in the super-heroes scene than
the one he made with Spider-Man and Rhino.
