Fictional biography

A dangerous Eliminator, long thought to be in hiding has started to rear his cyclopean head once again. Not seen since the accident that claimed his arm (a medical experiment gone awry), he has started a complex process called "Empurata-by-proxy", a technique by which he can manipulate weak-willed "empties" and clone-bodies for his own maniacal ends. His first experiment was on one of the many almost-mindless security drones who use the 256-OZU-004 body-type and when this proved successful he turned his attention to a robot of higher stature.

He managed to lure a Steelian clone known as Zip-Zip into a trap, and proceeded to over-write his likeness and personality onto the feeble minded automation. Using this body and many others like it, Cyclops can infiltrate Steelian bases, intercept transmissions and has an almost limitless range of striking ability. Indeed, the ability to strike at a foe from afar with no risk to his own being is why he has dubbed this the "Long-Blast" Project.

With too many clones running from his core processor, it can slow Cyclops down and the only weakness the clones suffer from is "lagging", a Steel Planet term from the old days of "dial-up" information uploads. So car the only Steelian who suspects there is a nefarious plot is Scatman, who has noticed the strange behavior and unexplained absences of his former partner Zip-zip, and has vowed to find out the truth.
