Albert, a robot doppleganger of Wolverine, was built by Donald Pierce in the Reavers' secret underground base. Pierce created the Wolverine android in order lead the real Wolverine to a trap where he would be killed by Elsie Dee. Elsie Dee had the appearance of a little girl, but was in fact an android bomb created by Pierce to assassinate Wolverine. Unfortunately for Pierce, one of his Reavers accidentally let Elsie become superhumanly smart during her construction, leaving her self-aware enough to cherish her own existence.
Unable to override her primary directive, Elsie Dee still tried to find a way around her own self-destruct protocols. She upgraded her partner's strength and intelligence as well after they were released in California to draw Wolverine's attention. She hoped if the Wolverine robot was smart enough and tough enough to kill Wolverine, she wouldn't have to explode to do it. Once he was as smart as Elsie, the little android named her partner "Albert" after Albert Einstein. The newly self-aware Albert realized he would miss Elsie Dee if she were gone, and consciously chose to help her kill Wolverine without dying herself.
Albert still wasn't strong enough to beat Logan when they fought, however, and so Elsie Dee was forced to carry out her programming. When Logan selflessly faced injury in a burning building to save her, though, Elsie refused to let him die and consciously fought to override her detonation sequence. Meanwhile, Albert made his way to an electronics store and hacked into the NSA's super-computers to crack Pierce's programming. He managed to crunch the numbers and made an override code for Elsie, which he transmitted to her even while getting shot down by the police for raiding the store.
After rebuilding himself in the police evidence locker, Albert stole a stealth bomber and reconnected with Elsie Dee.
Later, while searching for Wolverine to tell him he was ill, Albert and Elsie Dee met up with a creature known as a Hunter in Darkness, which they called "Puppy." Later, they were seen with the supernatural assassin Bloodscream.
Adamantium Laced Claws: Albert's claws are laced with the rare, artificial, and virtually indestructible alloy known as Adamantium or True Adamantium. As a result, Albert's claws are virtually unbreakable. Aside from being practically indestructible, the claws are capable of cutting any solid material, with the known exception of True Adamantium and Proto-Admantium (Captain America's Shield.) However, Albert's ability to slice completely through a substance depends upon the thickness of the substance and the amount of force he can exert.
Toy Biz released a Robot Wolverine (Albert) action figure in the '90s and was the 6th edition of a Wolverine action figure since the series launched. Albert featured human-tissue-covered arms which could be exchanged with a pair of adamantium arms with extended claws. The character design reflected a punk warrior look from a bleak future popular in movies like Mad Max.
