Advanced Idea Mechanics (AIM) built the Adaptoid robot and incorporated a portion of a Cosmic Cube into it. It went on to copy the powers and appearances of many heroes, including the Avengers, Fantastic Four, and the X-Men. During the course of its battle it renamed itself Super-Adaptoid. Despite its stolen powers, it has been consistently defeated by the groups and heroes it is pitted against. Most recently, the Phalanx took over Super-Adaptoid, making it one of the Phalanx's deadliest weapons.
