A SilverAge [[{{Comics}} comic book]] hero, originally published by GoldKeyComics in the 1960's. He was revived by ValiantComics in the 1990's, and has appeared sporadically under other publishers' banners since then.

So it goes for a while, and then [[BizarroEpisode aliens invade.]] Specifically, alien ''robots'' called the Malevs who had appeared in the SilverAge series, but had been a minor plot element there. Here, they arrive, co-opt most of the existing robot population, and conquer the Earth. All of the original plot arcs are overwhelmed by the fight against the alien invaders. While the Malev War certainly has strong fans among the Valiant Comics fanbase, it can also be argued that it drastically derailed the basic premise of the comic. Here we get a RobotWar, but ironically, it's one that has little to do with the original human/robot conflict. The war does end, eventually; [[spoiler: but not well for Earth's robots.]]

I believe this was the wrong wick. Dark Age redirects to The Dark Age of Comic Books
* CrapsackWorld: The Valiant version certainly had [[DarkAge elements of this,]] but the Dark Horse version seems, well, [[IncrediblyLamePun darker.]]
