History: (Strange Tales I#142/1) - The robot nicknamed "Wild Bill" by Nick Fury was constructed for S.H.I.E.L.D. by Tony Stark. After being sent to S.H.I.E.L.D. Headquarters, the robot was activated by a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent for a test before Stark had checked it himself to see that it was ready. The robot ran amok, firing at anyone it saw -- including Nick Fury -- until a S.H.I.E.L.D. technician shut it down.

(Captain America I#190) - After nearly the entire male population of S.H.I.E.L.D. Headquarters was enslaved by Nightshade to attack Captain America and the Falcon, they unleashed "Wild Bill" upon the heroes. Captain America shielded the Falcon from its attack while Redwing distracted it, allowing them an opening to strike; Captain America shattered the robot to pieces with a blow to its head.

Comments: Created by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Mike Demeo.
