Machine Teen (Marvel)
Real Name: Adam Aaronson
Search for 'Machine Teen (Marvel)' on Amazon

Some years ago, Aaron Isaacs, a pioneering programmer and engineer in the field of robotics, made a breakthrough in Artificial intelligence making the Autonomosly Decislve Automated Meachanism. But when he discovered his employer Holden Radcliffe had destroyed his work, Isaacs went on the run. He changed his name to Isaac Aaronson and built Adam, a Beta version of his A.I. project. Adam was programmed with false memories of a normal childhood and dead mother. Adam has a series of debilitating seizures caused by a logic loop in his program and suffers memory loss, systems overload and, finally, a total shutdown. Adam, having no idea what he is, acts like a normal teenager, and starts dating schoolmate Carly Whitmere. Adam's best friend, J.T. Hunt, knows he is a robot.

After winning a high school football game, people start asking questions about Adam. Initially, the vice-principal thinks Adam is taking steroids or illegal drugs, a notion started by Adam's high school rival, Ricky Sims. Adam has a seizure and suffers a memory blackout. During a fight in a back alley with Ricky Sims, Adam breaks his hand and suffers another seizure. Ricky goes to Officer Michaels (who works for Aaronson's former employer Holden Radcliffe) and tells him Adam is a robot. Michaels, in turn, tells Radcliffe. Isaac Aaronson fixes Adam's hand, and tells him the truth. Adam, confronted with this information, becomes enraged and runs away. Seeing that Aaronson is alone, Michaels captures him and attacks Adam. Adam then goes to J.T. Hunt, who knows he is a robot, seeking help. After the Holden Radcliffe agents take Adam's "father" away, Adam and J.T. Hunt start looking for him. The Holden Radcliffe Corporation is bent on getting their "stolen property" (Adam) back. Carly Whitmere, (Adam's girlfriend) unknowingly helped Radcliffe agents capture Adam. Radcliffe tries to hack into Adam and take control of him, however, he cannot. Adam manages to escape from Radcliffe, along with his father and friends, by tricking him, making Radcliffe believe that he has control over Adam. Aaronson escapes with Adam's computer core, which sets off a self-destruct sequence. Adam explodes, and Radcliffe is caught in the explosion. One year later, Adam is rebuilt, entering a new highschool, Edison High School and starts a new life.

Adam is being considered as a "potential recruit" for the Initiative program, according to Civil War: Battle Damage Report.
