Fictional biography

From an alternate dimension populated by Next Generation of Mirror Mirror robots, this heroic Eliminatior might look funky with his 80s beach wear colouration but personality wise, he is actually exactly tthe same as the Reformatted Steelian warrior Apex, if Apex was a disenfranchised stoner, Generation X, mall dwelling bum. He did have a job once, as a waiter in one of Planet Steel's most famous hotels, Salty Towers. There he was often bullied by his aggressive boss who used to pin the blame on Robot Manuel for every little mistake, and he often resorted to physically beating Robot Manuel in a slapstick manner. His boss once mentioned the war around a group of visiting Eliminators, but he thinks he got away with it.
