As a result the Groupmind considers individual morphs as completely disposable, and is willing to destroy thousands to save [[BlueAndOrangeMorality save one human life.]]

** When the company attempted to reprint it near the end of its comic-publishing days, the Comics Code Authority ordered them [[CompletelyMissingThePoint to change the human astronaut's ethnicity]]. This, incidentally, is why EC stopped publishing comics.

* The much beloved ECComics story "Judgment Day" has this trope, though the orange robots don't outright enslave the blue robots, they do make the blues sit in the back of the bus, recharge at separate stations, live in inferior housing, etc. DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything Read it [[http://asylums.insanejournal.com/scans_daily/54803.html here]]; the whole thing seems obvious and {{Anvilicious}} now, but it was shocking back when it was made.

** The ''T2'' novelization says that Skynet only created the T-1000 as a last-ditch effort, because the liquid-metal machine would be too difficult to keep under its control. This theme was explored in more detail in the second season of ''TheSarahConnorChronicles'', which features a rebellious T-1001.

* In ''TabeltopGame/GURPSReignOfSteel'', a supercomputer gains sentience and uplifts a bunch of other supercomputers around the world to join it in the task of [[KillAllHumans Killing All Humans]]. The task (nearly) complete, the surviving supercomputers have divided up Earth among themselves and have enacted a convention forbidding the uplift of any more sentient computers to prevent further competition for resources or divisiveness of opinion - the intelligence of all their servant robots are strictly limited to sub-human levels. [[spoiler: The computer in charge of the Japanese islands inadvertently creates four new AIs and begins a secret civil war with them in the hopes of destroying them before the other computers find out about it and nuke them all.]]
