(Captain America I#133) - Seeking vengeance on Captain America, MODOK (Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing) created a humanoid "out of lifeless clay," giving it some semblance of life and intelligence via MODOK's own mind. He then had it transported to the New Jersey marshlands, from which it fought its way through the Lincoln Tunnel. Once in Harlem, the Bulldozer began smashing buildings, claiming to be seeking to destroy the slums, an action which met vigorous approval from their residents. Captain America, the Falcon, and the NYPD sought to stop the rampaging creature, but found him durable enough to resist conventional attacks; in addition, their efforts were made more difficult by interference of the Harlem residents supporting the Bulldozer. Captain America told the police to back up so he would have time to institute his plan, and MODOK was pleased that Captain America was earning the enmity of both the police and the Harlem residents, none of whom fully appreciated the situation.
Captain America contacted Tony Stark and had him quickly build a portable detector, which was delivered by Redwing. The device correctly identified MODOK's involvement, and Captain America then used it to jam MODOK's commands, making the Bulldozer do the exact opposite of what it had been ordered. The Bulldozer then proceeded to enter the one building that MODOK wouldn't want it to enter: the abandoned church in which MODOK had set up base. Captain America and the Falcon followed the Bulldozer into the church, but they soon fled when Bulldozer's mindless rampage caused the roof to collapse, apparently destroying it and MODOK.
Comments: Created by Stan "The Man" Lee, Gene "The Dean" Colan, and Dick "The Brick" Ayers (ok, I made the last one up...)
Of course, MODOK made it out ok...
