(Deathlok II#8 (fb) - BTS) - Working at the Vault, Guardsman Patrick Herbert spent months guarding villain Mainframe during the night shift. Herbert started trusting Mainframe, trading cigarettes for helpful stock tips, not knowing that Mainframe was using his powers to slowly seize control of Herbert's armor.

(Deathlok II#8) - Herbert visited Mainframe, who seized control of the armor, forced Herbert to open the cell and remove his helmet, and knocked Herbert out with a punch. Mainframe donned Herbert's armor and left Herbert in his boxers on Mainframe's bed while Mainframe escaped.
