Powers/Abilities: The Iron Man robot had all the powers of the real Iron Man: superhuman strength class 75, flight thanks to jet boots, repulsor blasts, (possibly) infrared vision (and/or) detect low sounds and many other non-demonstrated powers. Plus, Iron Man robot had instantaneous reflexes, wasn't affected by the heat generated by the Human Torch (because there was no one to be scorched within the armor), and never tired. The robot didn't speak.

head shotHistory: (Fantastic Four I#202 (fb) - BTS) - Quasimodo copied all the records of Iron Man armor and used it to build an armor identical to the Iron Man armor.

(Fantastic Four I#202) - Quasimodo sent Iron Man imposter to steal the Baxter Building. Quasimodo's Iron Man attacked the Fantastic Four in their home. Thanks to the surprise attack, it held them back and avoided their retaliation. The robot managed to reach the control lever that separated the last five floors of the building in case of danger. It activated the lever and piloted the flying top of the building to a place on the Atlantic Ocean, where Quasimodo was waiting for it.QUASIMODO await for the Fantastic Four with hi bodyguard

    The Fantastic Four, assisted by the real Iron Man, managed to track down the Baxter Building and found Quasimodo and Iron Man robot. A fight started and the Iron Man imposter was attacked by the real Iron Man. The fight was equal until Iron Man understood that the robot had too much energy for it to discharge, so he tried to overcharge the robot and succeeded in doing it. Quasimodo fled in the space.

Tony Stark called the other Iron Man his counterpart-robot, although he knew it was an empty armor.
