DEATHLOK Exact Medical Replica
Classification: Extradimensional (Earth-7484 / Earth-Deathlok) human cyborg
Creator: CIA (Central Intelligence Agency)
First Appearance: Astonishing Tales#36 (July 1976)
Powers/Abilities/Functions: The Deathlok EMR was
designed as an exact duplicate of Deathlok's cybernetic systems. It is unclear
what the source of its organic material is/was; perhaps it was from another
As it was strapped in place, it is quite possible that it had some degree of mobility and possibly even some capacity for thought. It may be that it was a living being that they sentenced to a (brief) life of serving as a piece of monitoring equipment.
(Astonishing Tales#36 (fb) - BTS) - After Deathlok agreed to continue to work for the CIA, director Theresa Devereaux designed an Exact Medical Replica (EMR) of him. With this they intended to monitor his systems for failure while he was out on assignment.
(Astonishing Tales#36) - Theresa showed the EMR to the Luther Manning clone, who had received a copy of Manning/Deathlok's memories and persona.
(Astonishing Tales#36 (fb)) - When Deathlok was sent to Earth-616 by Godwulf, all connections to the EMR were severed, and it ceased functioning. The CIA incorrectly believed the real Deathlok to have died. Manning told the CIA scientists to junk it, as the sight of it made him sick.
