M-11 (Human Robot)Edit
M-11 is a robot superhero. Originally known as the Human Robot, the character was given the name "M-11" in the 2006 to 2007 Agents of Atlas miniseries as an allusion to its first appearance in Menace No. 11 (May 1954) from Marvel Comics' 1950s predecessor, Atlas Comics. In an alternate reality from mainstream Earth, a scientist's newly created robot is programmed by the scientist's greedy business manager to murder the scientist. The incomplete robot, however, continues through with his directive to "kill the man in the room", and kills the business manager when the man enters. The robot then leaves the house, programmed to "kill the man in the room" but ultimately falling off a pier into the sea and short-circuiting.
In What If No. 9, the Human Robot is a member of a 1950s team of Avengers. After being retrieved from the sea, it is reprogrammed by Marvel Boy to prevent it harming the other team-members, although the Human Robot is still prone to responding aggressively to any actions that imply an attack. When the group battle a team of supervillains united by the Yellow Claw to kidnap the President, the Human Robot shields the group from an explosion and, when briefly believing the robot vapourised, 3-D Man admits that perhaps it was more 'human' than he had previously thought.

|Notable aliases||Mad Merlin, The Warlock, the Maha Yogi|
Yogi was apparently born 10,000 years ago in what is now Central Europe. He apparently was a savage that came to possess some portion of the same Bloodgem that Ulysses Bloodstone would later possess, which gave him immortality and eternal youth. He later came to Britain during the time of Camelot, and impersonated the real Merlin while he was away. The Eternal Sersi exposed the impostor, and the real Merlin placed him in suspended animation.
The false Merlin was revived in modern times, still posing as Merlin, and battled and was defeated by Thor, after which he went back into the coffin. He later became a professional criminal and took the name Warlock, organizing a band of armored mercenaries. He abducted Marvel Girl, battled the original X-Men, and was rendered comatose by Professor X.
Later, as the mentalist Maha Yogi, he attempted to create an army of mind-slaves. He fought and was defeated by the Beast and Iceman. The Maha Yogi then became the chairman of Merlin Industries. With Mongu, the Maha Yogi plotted world conquest, but was defeated by the Hulk and Doctor Druid. During his encounter with the Hulk, his fragment of the Bloodgem was destroyed and he rapidly aged into helplessness. Some time later, the Maha Yogi was revealed to have been created by the Caretakers of Arcturus and to have turned against them. He later appeared alive with his youth apparently restored by unknown means.
As a result of mutation induced by the Caretakers of Arcturus, the Maha Yogi had the psionic abilities to control the minds of others, create illusions, project psionic force bolts, levitate objects as large as a building, teleport himself, create force fields and alter his own appearance. His psionic powers have a limited range.
Thanks to his possession of a fragment of the Bloodstone, the Maha Yogi is virtually immortal, and has a physically malleable body.
He has attempted to use true magic, performing a ritual to summon the demon known as Grendel's Mother.
