* Doombots, programmed to act like the real SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom in his absence. Arguably, it's not very difficult to achieve perfect resemblance to the real thing when the template himself dresses like a robot with a hood and cape...

** Superman, during UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|of Comic Book}}, used to build several robots to assist him. They usually looked so much like himself that it was impossible to tell them apart (which often was the point). The ones he built ComicBook/PostCrisis were much less lifelike, but still resembled him, except for Kelex who looked quite different.

* Both versions of ComicBook/TheVision from ''Comicbook/TheAvengers'': the original was married to the ScarletWitch; the new one spent a year traveling around the world finding himself, likes to be called Jonas in private, and is now dating [[ComicBook/YoungAvengers Stature]].

* The MetalMen are visibly robotic, and don't have human physical needs like nourishment, but are otherwise very much human in their emotions -- in fact, they are all more emotional and sentimental than their creator, the stiff, dispassionate Dr. Will Magnus. This was an intentional bit of irony by writer Bob Kanigher.

* The android {{Hourman}}, Matthew Tyler. He was even programmed with the 'geneware' of Rex Tyler, the original Hourman.

* Arguably justified to the point of deconstruction by Machine Man, in various Creator/MarvelComics tales. The X-series robots are supposed to be, essentially, Terminators, but Abel Stack is convinced that a robot that can think as well as a human needs to think like a human; when the other fifty robots develop bizarre psychoses and X-51 remains sane, he's proven right, but X-51 also proves useless as a military device. Much later, in ''EarthX'', Uatu the Watcher claims Abel made "Aaron" as an extension of himself, hoping to "live forever" in this way.

* Older than all the examples below is the original Human Torch. He's an android but he completely averted the RoboticReveal trope that was common in his day by being (synthetically i.e. ceramic bones) human to a cellular level. He was a universal donor and even had genetic material.

* The Vision's "brother", [[spoiler:[[Comicbook/{{Runaways}} Victor Mancha]]]], looks and acts so much like a normal teenager that ''he himself didn't know he was a robot for years''. This was justified considering that [[spoiler: he was built as part of an elaborate plot that required him to pass as human for a while.]]
