History: (Deathlok II#20 (fb) - BTS) - The Cyberwarriors were created by former Cybertek employees Harlan Ryker, Mainframe, Ben Jacobs, Stanley Cross, Dr. Hu and Dr. Kimble, who had lost their jobs when Deathlok (Michael Collins) exposed their illegal activities. Using similar techniques used in the creation of Deathlok, they began to manufacture armies of Cyberwarriors to sell to the highest bidder. They obtained the brains needed for processing information by bribing medical institutions for brains from the newly-deceased, but also placed subjects into comas, declared them terminal and then used their brains as well.
(Deathlok II#17) - Roxxon Oil's president Clayton Burr, former owners of Cybertek, alerted Deathlok to the Cyberwarriors' existence, requesting that he destroy them. Burr was secretly working with Ryker, and the two were planning to get Deathlok back into their clutches.
(Deathlok II#18) - Deathlok and the Wild Pack confronted members of ULTIMATUM, who were going to purchase some Cyberwarriors, and they tortured the location of the Cyberwarrior plant from one of their agents. Invading the plant, they were attacked by an army of Cyberwarriors, and Deathlok discovered that they were superior to him in strength.
(Deathlok II#19) - Mainframe took control of the Cyberwarriors and had them attack Deathlok. During the battle, Deathlok attempted to override the controls of one of the Cyberwarriors, but in the process, allowed cyberspace inhabitant John Kelly to escape the Deathlok cyborg and upload his mind into the overridden Cyberwarrior. Taking over the Cyberwarrior, John Kelly aided Deathlok and Silver Sable's Wild Pack against the remaining Cyberwarriors until they were all destroyed. Silver Sable discovered that some of the Cyberwarriors had been sold to her enemies, the Genesis Coalition, and she parted ways to investigate her lead.
(Deathlok II#20) - Deathlok and Siege joined forces with Coldblood to invade Ryker's lab, and Mainframe sent more Cyberwarriors to fight them.
(Deathlok II#21) - Ryker and his men sold ten Cyberwarriors to the forces of Colonel Sinje, who then sent them to attack Kuwait, but Deathlok, Siege, Coldblood and S.H.I.E.L.D. attacked them, and Deathlok saw to it that all of the Cyberwarriors were destroyed, afraid that S.H.I.E.L.D. was after the technology.
(Silver Sable and the Wild Pack#11) - Silver Sable led the Wild Pack and Stingray on a mission to halt the Genesis Coalition from transporting a shipment of Cyberwarriors from a stolen mobile underwater Hydra base. They were joined by fellow mercenaries the Next Wave and began to battle the Cyberwarriors.
(Silver Sable and the Wild Pack#12) - The Wild Pack and Next Wave fought wave after wave of Cyberwarriors, until the damage they did wrecked the base itself. The Genesis Coalition sent an army of Cyberwarriors to Transia to conquer Mount Wundagore, but were opposed there by Siege, the Knights of Wundagore, the Wild Pack and the Next Wave. By hacking into the Cyberwarriors' shared program, Quentino was able to shut down the entire assault force, deactivating the Genesis Coalition's army.
