Name: Magnus
Alias: Robot Fighter
Age: Late 20s
Weight: 240 lbs
Height: 6'2"
Species: Advanced Humanoid

Powers & Abilities:
  • Superhuman Strength/Durability/Stamina/Agility
  • Extensive hand-to-hand combat training/Well-rounded Master Martial Artist
  • Tech sensory
    - His teacher and mentor, 1A had implanted cybernetic receptors into his skull, enabling Magnus to intercept a variety of electronic frequencies and transmissions from a 10 mile radius. He is able to communicate fluently to all types of robots and in some instances, command them to do his bidding. The cybernetic receptors also work as mental blockers, scrambling interference against telepaths that may try to read and control his mind.

Weaknesses:
Though he may have an enhanced body, he does not possess any super powers. Magnus may be in a league of his own when it comes to unarmed combat, but in return he has terrible marksmanship. Therefore, his abilities are only fully utilized when he is up close and personal with his target(s).

Personality: Charismatic, Boisterous, Charming, Intelligent, Thoughtful, Loud, and sometimes obnoxious, surly and temperamental.

History: Magnus was born on alternate Earth 3927, where machines ruled over humans with an iron fist. 1A, a self-aware and emotionally expressive robot, raised and developed Magnus on his own to protect the oppressed humans of their world and bring down the enslavers with a fiery justice. 1A trained Magnus with a 'perfect' method that over time transformed him into a superhuman machine killer. The icing on the cake would be a surgical procedure where 1A would implant cybernetic receptors into Magnus' brain which enabled him to hear 'machine talk.'

His campaign to liberate Earth from the machines was a long and brutal process. The final battle was on board an orbiting space station where the ultimate super computer was installed. Destroying it would create a domino effect back on Earth, rendering every machine inert, thus freeing the humans completely from their rule. Fighting through the station with his bare hands, he eventually comes across an advanced cyborg machine - the ultimate combat bot and host of the super computer. They fought in a frenzied, gut-wrenching slug fest until Magnus finally managed to destroy it. However, before the super computer permanently shut down, it captured Magnus in a gravitron teleporter sequence through a time stream until he crash lands into a barren moon.

Magnus is able to hitchhike between star systems, with every intention of trying to get back to his homeworld. He comes across a green-colored alien named Drax. They fight across a desolate planet for an entire day before finally negotiating a truce. Impressed by Magnus' skills, Drax offers him a chance to become a Guardian of the Galaxy. Magnus tells the alien his plight, explaining how he liberated Earth from the machines and how he simply wishes to return. Puzzled, Drax informs him of the current time line and status of Earth 616, suggesting that Magnus may be from an entirely different universe. Shocked by this revelation, he demands to go to Earth and confirm this for himself. Upon doing so, he witnesses firsthand that Drax's Earth is not his at all. Frustrated by these turn of events with no where to go, over time he finally accepts Drax's offer and enlists as a Guardian candidate.

Magnus hopes that by joining this band of cosmic super heroes, they will in turn, find a way to get him back home.

So begins...

The illustrious band of hazy green stars flicker against the sleek armor of an approaching commercial vessel. The most consistent name given to this galaxy is, The Dragon Spire, for its coiled reptilian-like formation and color. Looking outside from the ship's viewports, remnants of an old galactic war can be seen as the space craft passes through cluttered fields of junked warships. The passengers on board this vessel contain the remaining candidates left from the Guardian trials. They were separated from previous evaluations: Each person was assigned into a group out of five with one of the Guardians of the Galaxy as their representatives.

Code: Select all
Star-Lord - Magnus

Rocket Raccoon - Sheriff Ultra

Drax - Knostiis

Gamora - Mis.Shift

Groot - King Moth


Out of the thousands that participated in the try outs, it has come down to these final five. Some may upkeep their resiliency and await what the Guardians of the Galaxy have yet to throw at them. Others may be doubtful of their own abilities, or perhaps curious of the others - where they're from and what their capabilities are. Nothing was said to the candidates about what the final exam would entail. The only hint given is the ominous display of wrecked ships floating around them. The transport vessel is called the 578-R Transporter, but the Guardians have retrofitted it with advanced defense and weapons systems to be able to handle its own in a tight pinch. Rocket Raccoon has dubbed it the Rocket, much to the Guardian's disapproval. The entire crew maintaining the vessel consists of robotic units, designed to function according to their given tasks, but all would be able to assist their passengers to the best of their abilities. Displayed in holo form in almost every corner of the "Rocket" is a layout of the entire ship. Just then an announcement is heard over the comm by one of the piloting robot units:

Attention all candidates. ETA in 02 hours and 15 minutes. Please enjoy our accommodations. Please note that the Bridge and Engine Room are off-limits. If you have any questions or concerns, please ask any of the attending units and they'll be happy to assist you.

The transport was far too confining for Knostiis, seeing as he was use to flying threw vast voids of space with millions of light years between the tip of his wings and the nearest physical object. This vessel's configuration did little to alleviate the feeling of crampedness and confinement which the interior of the yellow ship evoked. The only vantage point which would allow one to gaze outside the vessel was an extremely small porthole at the height of the stairway, on the way to the bridge.

It was here where the width of the ship was the lest bulky, a fact which didn't sit well with Knostiis, it was a sure point of weakness in an otherwise sturdy vessel. There was a second port on the opposite side of the ship beneath front light fixture, but that was blocked off by the bulked which consisted of several feet of steel.

Everyone had been forbidden to enter the bridge and even though the stairwell leading to it was far more confining then any other part of the vessel it was there that Knostiis felt the best standing-The porthole giving Knostiis access to veiw the stars.

________________________________________________


In stark contrast to Knostiis and his ill-feelings toward being packed into a small transport ship like so many sardines in a tin can, was Mis.Shift and her well adjusted acquiescence to the whole ordeal. She remained in her seat during the entire journey, on the inside Shift was just as frazzled as she assumed the others were at this point.

She had gotten out of her assigned seat just a single time when she attempted to open the door to the Airlock, not knowing that while in flight mode and under monitored conditions the airlock was closed up tight.

Shift had seen many strange visitors to the Negative Zone, both friendly and enemy alike, but the beings presented here were far more interesting to her, and Mis.Shift did indeed wonder about them. They in no doubt were wondereing about her and Knostiis as well.
