Classification: Extraterrestrial (Skrull) technology (robot)

Creator: Unidentified Skrull engineers

User/Possessors: Annelle, Dorrek VII

First Appearance: Captain Marvel I#2 (June, 1968)

Powers/Abilities/Functions: Machino appears to have been patterned on animal lifeforms. Machino stood upon four mechanical legs, could growl like an animal and had a mouth full of sharp teeth. Annelle opined that the Super-Skrull would be hard-pressed to defend himself from Machino's teeth but this was likely meant more as an insult than a certainty.

(Captain Marvel I#2) - On the Skrull throneworld, Machino sat by Emperor Dorrek VII's side as he studied intelligence indicating the Kree were then presently active on Earth. When Dorrek summoned his exiled agent the Super-Skrull to an audience, Princess Annelle joined her father in the throneroom with Machino at her side. The Super-Skrull was smitten with Annelle but she spoke to Machino (clearly for the Super-Skrull's benefit) that she found the Super-Skrull "not so invincible" and opined that he would find Machino's mechanical teeth difficult to defend against. Machino remained in the throneroom as Dorrek outlined the Super-Skrull's assignment to Earth.

Comments: Created by Roy Thomas, Gene Colan and Vince Colletta.
