Known Relatives: Inapplicable

Aliases: Dreadnaughts

Base of Operations: Mobile

First Appearance: Strange Tales I#154 (March, 1967)

Powers/Abilities: The original Dreadnought possessed enhanced strength, flight (through boot jets), Darts of Doom (sharp projectiles from its fingertips), electric-charges, fire-blasters, gamma-ray projectors, ice breath (or Frigi-breath), finger missiles, laser blasts and self-repairing technology. In addition, it commanded a Hydra division called Heavy Weapons, which included access to agents with Hydra-Piller gun-ships. Dreadnoughts began to be mass produced by the Maggia after a time, maintaining much of the weaponry and adding modifications, including electric rod hands, tank treads as legs and chainsaw hands, but they were more uniformly programmed and less capable of independent thought. A later model had the Dreadnought standing 8-feet tall, weighing 2000 pounds and cast in Titanium, capable of intensive calculations, firing knuckle darts and blasting concussive energy outward. The model that fought with the New Enforcers could fire green energy from its eyes and had both electric hand-blasts and Frigi-Breath. At three times the size of the original models, the Dreadnoughts 2000 were remotely controlled by human operatives and could solidify oxygen and use it as a weapon, fire concussive bursts of water, fire concussive beams that could liquify steel and fire magnesium gas, napalm, acid, slippery oil and a gooey liquid metal. A.I.M. eventually equipped the mass-produced Dreadnoughts with the power of flight. When Ezekiel Stane revamped the Dreadnoughts in red and gold, they were capable of blowing themselves up. When Hydra ruled America briefly, they equipped the Dreadnoughts with Adaptoid technology, making them capable of adapting to super powers and equipping themselves with counter-measures to make them more effective in battle. The Dreadnought controlled by Kaizo Kobashi was regulated by voice commands and equipped with invisibility in the form of stealth-mode, a localized EMP and a self-destruct capability. R.A.I.D. designed a skyscraper-sized Dreadnought with an Adamantium alloy, capable of firing liquid nitrogen.

Some Dreadnoughts have been programmed to operate as seemingly sentient beings, capable of independent will and personalities, yet generally set to achieve a particular mission. Dreadnoughts have varied in size from the standard size to the size of ships or buildings. Many have been made from cheap, easily destroyed material while others are much more durable, ranging from Titanium to Adamantium. While most have the standard silver or grey color, others have been modeled to be more red, gold or blue.

(Strange Tales I#154) – In an attempt to destroy S.H.I.E.L.D. once and for all, Hydra launched Plan D, the deadly Dreadnought, sending it to destroy the Helicarrier. The Dreadnought was 8-feet tall and equipped with offensive weaponry. Dreadnought burst through the wall then it allowed Nick Fury to take oxygen pills so that it could kill Fury himself. Dreadnought hit Fury then shot liquid fire and Darts of Doom at him but Fury managed to defend himself. As Dreadnought formed electric charges, Fury drained the energy and knocked Dreadnought down. Dreadnought bombarded Fury with gamma-rays until Fury covered its eyes, or scanner-orbs, with lead paint. As other S.H.I.E.L.D. agents rushed in, Dreadnought used his "Frigi-Breath," or ice-breath, but Fury disabled the robot with a self-destruct ring.

(Daredevil I#121 (fb) – BTS) – Hydra formed a new team of division chiefs, with a Dreadnought being selected for the Heavy Weapons division. Other divisions were led by Mentallo, the Fixer, Blackwing, Commander Kraken, Man-Killer, el Jaguar, the Fox and Jackhammer.

(Daredevil I#121) – Hydra summoned the Dreadnought and his division to dispose of "Foggy" Nelson. Dreadnought and its men opened fire on "Foggy" and his friend Matt Murdock with Hydra-Pillers (small gunships with assault rifles). Dreadnought attacked "Foggy" directly but Matt "tripped" into it, knocking it back, then Black Widow and Matt (as Daredevil) fought Dreadnought as S.H.I.E.L.D. agents held off the Hydra forces. Dreadnought wielded fire-blasters, boot-jets, gamma-rays, ice breath and self-repairing tech in his battle, putting civilians like Morris Silverman and Philip in danger. Dreadnought overpowered the heroes and kidnapped "Foggy."

(Daredevil I#123) – Dreadnought, Mentallo and Supreme Hydra/Silvermane kept "Foggy" Nelson captive in the Hydra base underneath Shea Stadium and soon, Blackwing, Man-Killer and el Jaguar brought in the captive Daredevil and Black Widow. They battled S.H.I.E.L.D. LMDs and the heroes got free. Dreadnought blasted Daredevil with flame but then Black Widow disabled it with a blow to its cooling unit.

(Iron Man I#138 (fb) – BTS) – Madame Masque, as the Director of the Maggia, stole Hydra's Dreadnought plans and began building her own.

(Iron Man I#129) – A Dreadnought broke into the mountain-base Project 13, a S.H.I.E.L.D. site that contained a doomsday device. When Nick Fury fought it, the Dreadnought easily defeated him then moved toward the machine. Iron Man attacked and the Dreadnought used lasers from his fingers, liquid flame, "Frigi-Breath" and super-strength against the hero, who fought back with repulsor rays. Iron Man turned the Dreadnought's power back on it and the robot exploded. The hero realized Madame Masque was behind it all.

(Marvel Premiere I#55) – Still under the control of the Director, a Dreadnought (bright silver with finger-lasers) was ordered to battle Wonder Man. Wonder Man beheaded the robot.

(Iron Man I#138) – Madame Masque, flanked by Dreadnoughts, worked with Spymaster in a plot against Iron Man. Madame Masque led her Dreadnoughts in to attack Tony Stark, as he changed to Iron Man, over the kidnapped unconscious form of Bethany Cabe.

(Iron Man I#139) – Flanked by two Dreadnoughts and Maggia men, Madame Masque confronted Iron Man and Bethany Cabe. When James Rhodes attacked on a forklift, the Dreadnoughts fought back. Iron Man destroyed two (one with concussive force, another with a Freon tube down its mouth) then an army of modified Dreadnoughts attacked. Modifications included electric rod hands, tank treads as legs and chainsaw hands. Iron Man crushed some with rolls of bulk paper then scrambled the electric signals of the others. Madame Masque soon retreated.

(Marvel Team-Up I#139 (fb) – BTS) – Maggia member Marcos Crusetti obtained a Dreadnought to aid him in a personal matter.

(Marvel Team-Up I#139) – An 8-foot tall, 2200-pound Dreadnought cast in Titanium successfully kidnapped the actress Julie Winston after fighting off Spider-Man by calculating his moves, firing sharp darts from its knuckles and battering the hero with concussive energy. Later, the Dreadnought remained inert on a yacht until Nick Fury approached then it attacked with liquid fire and knuckle darts. As Spider-Man took down the Maggia men who had opened fire on Fury and the Dreadnought both, the Dreadnought defeated Fury with an electric shock then Spider-Man with a punch to the face. Both heroes woke up later, tied up, and realized that Julie Winston had been behind her own kidnapping, working with Crusetti the entire time. Dino Manelli showed up and Crusetti ordered Julie killed by Dreadnought but Manelli intercepted the gunfire. The heroes escaped and fought the Dreadnought, soon defeating him by fusing his circuits with an explosive collar.

(Iron Man I#245) – Hearing about an upswing in crime in the business district related to the Maggia, Iron Man investigated and found a pack of Dreadnoughts in a warehouse invasion. The hero easily destroyed them, realizing the Dreadnoughts were inferior copies of the original.

(Iron Man I#247) - The Maggia deployed dozens of Dreadnoughts against A.I.M. and Hydra at Sage Hills Mall in Los Angeles to save their leader Madame Masque. A.I.M. utilized their Dreadbusters against the Dreadnoughts while Mr. Fixit, who had been hired by A.I.M. and Hydra to kidnap Masque for them, also joined the battle. Iron Man arrived as well and fought Dreadnoughts and Dreadbusters alike. Most Dreadnoughts were destroyed in the battle and Madame Masque was saved by Iron Man from A.I.M. and Hydra.

(Incredible Hulk II#361) – Iron Man set up a meeting with Madame Masque and the Maggia, and she brought a Dreadnought to stand guard along with her men including Samuels and Spangler. Disguised as a second Dreadnought, Hulk attacked, destroying the Dreadnoughts in a battle with Hydra and A.I.M.

(Amazing Spider-Man Annual I#26) – At the Target Technologies complex in New Jersey, Spider-Man and the New Warriors (Nova, Namorita) broke in and faced a pack of Dreadnoughts (using liquid fire, eye lasers, knuckle-spikes, and "Frigi-Breath"). After a lengthy battle, the heroes defeated the robots then new model Dreadnoughts were released against them, three times the size of the original models, called the Dreadnoughts 2000.

(Spectacular Spider-Man Annual I#12) – The Dreadnoughts 2000 attacked Spider-Man, Nova and Namorita with savagery. The Dreadnoughts could solidify oxygen and use it as a weapon, fire concussive bursts of water, fire concussive beams that could liquify steel and fire magnesium gas, napalm, acid, slippery oil and a gooey liquid metal. The other New Warriors (Silhouette, Firestar, Night Thrasher) joined the fight but were also overwhelmed until Spider-Man realized the Dreadnoughts were being controlled by human operators including Carla and Frank. Once he stopped the operators, the Dreadnoughts easily fell, having not been equipped with their own operating systems yet. The heroes realized the villains behind the Dreadnoughts 2000 were A.I.M. and Justin Hammer.

(Web of Spider-Man I#99 (fb) – BTS) – Seeking to form a criminal underbase in New York City, a Dreadnought joined with Controller, Fixer, Madame Menace, Mentallo, Mr. Fear, Blitz, Dragon Man, Eel, Plant-Man, Super-Adaptoid, Tangle, Thermite and Vanisher in forming the New Enforcers.

(Web of Spider-Man I#100) – During the battle with Spider-Man, Dreadnought fired a green energy blast from its eyes, electric blasts from its hands and freezing breath from its mouth. After it crashed into the Super-Adaptoid, Dreadnought was briefly caught in a feedback loop then it turned on the criminal Blood Rose, who had just arrived. In time, the New Enforcers were defeated.

(Nightstalkers I#16) – An early Dreadnought model (with electric hands and "Frigi-Breath") was sent to attack Borderline Investigations to eliminate Blade, Hannibal King and Frank Drake of the Nightstalkers. While the three men escaped and their headquarters burnt down, Dreadnought stole the occult weapon, the Exorcist, and returned it to Lt. Belial of the D.O.A. Belial and his scientists then created the vampiric Bloodstorm, who promptly broke free and destroyed Dreadnought.

Comments: Created by Roy Thomas and Jim Steranko.

The Dreadnoughts received profiles in Marvel Encylopedia: Spider-Man and Marvel Knights, Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe I#4 and Iron Manual Mark 3#1.

A dreadnought is defined as a battleship from the earlier 20th century, known for its speed and offensive weaponry. (It’s also defined as a heavy overcoat).

The Dreadnoughts were sometimes spelled as Dreadnaughts. I maintained the spelling with the O instead of the A for the purpose of this profile.

Title image cleaned up by Ron Fredricks. Nightstalkers I#17, Iron Man IV#13 and Avengers IV#25 added by Markus Raymond.

The Dreadnoughts should not be confused with:

Morris Silverman & Phillip

(Daredevil I#121) – Morris Silverman and Philip were discussing their recent encounters in court when they saw a Dreadnought battling Daredevil and Black Widow and the civilians chose to flee.
