The Mad Thinker created the Awesome Android using DNA replication notes stolen from Mister Fantastic. Splicing ape DNA with unstable molecules, the Thinker created an organic body in which he placed a computerized "brain" along with a solar charger; ultimately creating an artificial being that was part robot and part android.
The Android began calling himself Awesome Andy, and took a job working for the law offices of Goodman, Lieber, Kurtzberg, & Holliway. Andy was a hard worker, and everyone at work got along well with him. Andy wore a chalkboard to communicate with other workers. Although he was gravely injured in a battle with Titania, Mr. Holliway threatened to sue Reed Richards for all he's worth until he agreed to repair Andy.
Awesome Android followed Mad Thinker when he joined the Future Foundation in Reed Richards' attempt to defeat the other Richards from other realities that threatened this universe. After the appearance of the Inhumans at High Evolutionary's city, Awesome Android was captive at Attilan along with Mad Thinker and Diablo.
Last appearance and Return
After developing the Zero Cannon along with the Intelligencia, the Sinister Six attacked them to rob the weapon, which had the power to send specific objects to space. Doctor Octopus proposed to M.O.D.O.K. to use the weapon in a fight where only one team could survive, during which Awesome Android was sent to space. After the battle, M.O.D.O.K. was expelled from Intelligencia's base by Doc Ock, swearing that he would find a way to revive the dead members.
Apparently, M.O.D.O.K. managed to revive the dead members of the Intelligencia as well as making space for the Trapster to join them and formulate a their plans after their predicted shatter of the superhero community. Their meeting was interrupted by Deadpool, who tried to sink the ship where they were, but was defeated by Trapster.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Mimicry: Andy possesses the unique ability to mimic certain characteristics or attributes of those he makes physical contact with. For example, he's taken on the rock-like hide of the Thing, the ice coating of Iceman's body, or Captain America's physique. He can only mimic a single attribute at a time and can retain the attribute for up to an hour. Andy also possesses variable superhuman attributes of his own without the need to mimic those of others.
Superhuman Strength: Andy is superhumanly strong and the limits of his strength can vary greatly. For example, if he were to make contact with beings such as Thor, his strength would be increased to the point of being able to lift far in excess of 100 tons for approximately 1 hour. His normal level of strength, however, is significantly less. Under normal circumstances, Andy can lift about about 25 tons.
Superhuman Stamina: Andy's musculature produces considerably less fatigue toxins during physical activity than the musculature of a human being. Under normal circumstances, he can exert himself at peak capacity for several days before fatigue begins to impair him.
Superhuman Durability: Andy's extremely dense bodily tissues are highly resistant to physical injury. He's able to withstand high caliber bullets, falls from tremendous heights, exposure to extremes in temperature and pressure, powerful impact forces, corrosive materials, and powerful energy blasts without being injured. By using his mimicry powers, Andy can temporarily increase his physical resistance even further, provided he makes contact with a sufficiently durable being.
Superhuman Agility: In spite of his great size, Andy's agility, balance, and bodily coordination are enhanced to levels that are beyond the natural physical limits of the finest human athlete. Provided he makes contact with a superhumanly agile being, he can add that beings agility to his own for up to 1 hour.
Superhuman Reflexes: Andy's reflexes are similarly enhanced and are superior to those of the finest human athlete.
Wind Expulsion: Andy is capable of generating and expelling powerful winds from his mouth at speeds of up to 180 miles per hour.
Limited Shapeshifting: Andy has demonstrated the ability to manipulate the shape and size of his body to some degree. He can transform his fists into giant blocks and has been seen to increase his height by as much as 10%.

AbilitiesAlthough Andy is generally peaceful, his physical attributes make him a formidable hand to hand combatant even though he's had no training. Andy's intelligence has also increased over time, now possessing the ability to write so that he can now communicate more thoroughly with others.
Andy lacks the ability to speak and has a motor nerve terminal located under each arm pit, which acts essentially as a kill switch.
