History: (Fantastic Four/Iron Man: Big in Japan#1 (fb)-BTS) - <some time after 1954> - After Droom razed Tokyo, the giant robot Otetsukun was designed by the Japanese as their last line of defense against giant monsters.

(Fantastic Four/Iron Man: Big in Japan#1) - Otetsukun was placed outside the Giant Monster Museun and Expo Center for its grand opening, which the Fantastic Four attended.

(Fantastic Four/Iron Man: Big in Japan#2) - When various giant monsters rampaged through Tokyo due to the impending arrival of the Apocalypse Beast, the FF's Thing and Human Torch took control of Otetsukun, with the Thing controlling it by pulling its internal wiring systems like a marionette and the Human Torch using his powers to emit flames from the robot's mouth area. The two used Otetsukun to combat the giant ape Eerok, but was double-teamed by it and Giganto. The heroes finally managed to use Otetsukun to defeat the monsters.
