Classification: Terrestrial technology, composite artificial intelligence
Creator: Terranometer (indirectly Nikola Tesla)
Enemies: Machine Man, Red She-Hulk (Betty Ross)
of Operations: Mobile;
formerly the Terranometer, near Mt Rushmore, USA
First Appearance: Red She-Hulk#65 (July, 2013)
Powers/Abilities/Functions: Yologarch had the combined powers(albeit significantly reduced) of Loki (magic), Ultron (technology), Red Skull (war-fueled ambition) and Doctor Doom (technology/magic). Its physical form seemed to be largely derived from Ultron (with a chest-mounted sonic blaster) with Doom-inspired armor and arms that coiled outward like serpents. Yologarch was capable of flight, blasting away with a (presumably Loki-inspired) rainbow wake. It saw itself as a dual entity, speaking as "I/we").
(Red She-Hulk#65 (fb) - BTS) - To protect the world computer, the Terranometer, Nikola Tesla and his contemporaries in the SHIELD cabal set a trap that would also serve as a defense. Tesla left clues that would lure in curious but powerful magic users and AIs, and the Terranometer would use time and space to grab them and digitize the trespasser, creating an electric energy doppelganger with the expulsion of each interloper. The templates would then be used to generate digital guardians to protect against new invaders. Four prominent intruders were Loki, Doctor Doom, Ultron and the Red Skull (Shmidt). Each separate digital template was weaker than its real counterpart and they fought to stay distinct beings within the Terranometer construct.
(Red She-Hulk#65) - Red She-Hulk and Machine Man's entry into the Terranometer (hidden behind the statues on Mt. Rushmore, USA) generated the energy contructs of Loki, Doctor Doom, Ultron and the Red Skull, which Red She-Hulk and Machine Man quickly overcame. However, while Machine Man was interfacing with the overwhelming information of the Terranometer, the four constructs combined their identities to become one being that could exist external to the world computer. Briefly battling Red She-Hulk, it then fought its programming to protect the Terranometer and instead fled. Swearing revenge on Red She-Hulk and the Terranometer, the composite AI named itself "Yologarch" and soared away.

Yologarch would make an ideal candidate for the sentient machine storyline in Avengers AI.
I had to look this up: in
Internet/text slang, YOLO stands for You Only Live Once, an acronym
that relates to risky and/or foolhardy behavior. B4 u type "WAYTA?", c a
Post article. I was like OMG. Further, it seems
writer Jeff Parker's character name was more of a prank
and not the intended one (according
to a tweet by him) - ROFL (SNH). What next, a teleporter called WRUman? :P
Anyway, OAPTD (Other Appendix Profiles To Do).
Yologarch has no known connections to:
Red She-Hulk#65, p18, pan2 (main image)
p14, pan1 (headshot and torso)
Red She-Hulk#65 (July, 2013) - Jeff Parker (writer), Carlo Pagulayan, Ray-Anthony Height & Wellington Alves (art), Mark Paniccia (editor)
