Classification: Extradimensional (Earth-20051 (? - see comments)) terrestrial technology
Creator: Baron Helmut Zemo
User/Possessors: Baron Helmut Zemo, Giant-Girl
First Appearance: Marvel Adventures Avengers#3 (September, 2006)
Powers/Abilities/Functions: The War-Walker Omega was a giant automated robot that was remotely controlled via a hand-held device. Its metal pincers could snap shut like a vise and Zemo claimed that it was resilient enough to withstand repulsor rays and Wolverine's claws (presumably a very tough metal alloy). It formed part of a small but advanced robotic army that included so-called militia machines and "super-soldier" cyborgs, all created by Baron Helmut Zemo.
(Marvel Adventures Avengers#3 (fb) - BTS) - In an effort to reclaim his grandfather's technological but aggressive heritage, Baron Helmut Zemo designed and built various forms of mechanical weaponry, including the War-Walker Omega and the two-legged militia machines. He intended to use these against Captain America, the man who defeated his father so many times, and against the hero's team, the Avengers.
Helmut Zemo was eventually able to kidnap Captain America and so the Avengers went after him. They soon came across Zemo's base but encountered the inactive War-Walker Omega. The Avengers were able to secretly remove almost all the robot's innards with Giant-Girl then squeezing into the large frame to mimic its movements.
(Marvel Adventures Avengers#3) - Zemo escaped from the combined might of the Avengers after they rescued Captain America. Zemo dispatched his robotic army against the team but the metal machines were soon defeated. Zemo then used his remote control to unleash the War-Walker Omega upon his foes only to find the robot's pincers suddenly snaring him so that he could not escape, with Giant-Girl then revealing her subterfuge.
Comments: Created by Jeff Parker (writer), Manuel Garcia (pencils)and Scott Koblish (inks).
There seem to be several discrepancies between at least Marvel Adventures Avengers and Marvel Adventures Fantastic Four, the latter having already been identified as Earth-20051, so this may not be from the MA FF dimension.

War-Walker Omega has no known connections to:
Zemo's militia machines were robotic, bipedal, walking gun platforms that fired energy blasts. Storm was able to slow them down but Iron Man was able to destroy all three, leaving only the legs standing.
