    Astonishing Tales #25 Aug 1974
    "A Cold Knight's Frenzy"
    In the near future, U.S. soldier Luther Manning is killed in action and his body is used
    as a subject for Project Alpha Mech headed by his commanding officer, Simon Ryker.

    Manning is transformed into a Deathlok cyborg with machinery replacing the destroyed left side of his face and missing right arm.

    The strategic part of his mind is preserved, but the cyborg is meant to be controlled solely by a computer programmed for perfect obedience.
    Manning's original personality gradually reasserts itself, however,
    causing Deathlok to disobey orders and ultimately break out of Ryker's facility and go AWOL.

    Deathlok becomes a mercenary, seeking to earn enough to transfer his mind to a new human body.
    He takes an assassination job from mob boss Julian Biggs, taking out two men for reasons he doesn't care to delve into.

    However when Deathlok goes to collect his payment, Biggs only laughs at him.
    The Demolisher attacks, but Biggs turns out to be a cyborg as well, controlled remotely by a vengeful Ryker.
    Ryker mocks Deathlok, promising that he will never realize his goal to regain his humanity.
    At that moment, Ryker's lover, Nina walks in on him and notices that he has made himself
    into a cyborg too, and Ryker coldly tells her that it's the last thing she will ever learn.

    Marvel Two in One #54 Aug 1979
    "The Pegasus Project Part 2: Blood and Bionics!" Guest-starring Deathlok and Quasar. Thundra cameo.
    The Thing is wandering the Project Pegasus complex when he is attacked by the Nth Command's agent, the cyborg known as Deathlok.

    The cyborg attacks Ben with lethal force and manages to injure his arm.

    When Ben tries to appeal to Luther Manning, the cyborg informs Ben that it has been culled of all it's organic components
    and is run completely by an artificial intelligence before resuming it's brutal assault on the Thing.
    When Quasar arrives with Pegasus security, Deathlok flees the scene.
    With Ben given the care of Pegasus medical staff, Quasar goes after Deathlok to figure out what the cyborg is up to.

    The damaged cyborg meanwhile has traveled deep into the complex and has
    begun setting up a Nth Projector in the Radioactive Disposal Section of the facility.
    Quasar manages to track Deathlok there and resumes his attack unaware of what Deathlok was doing in this area.

    During the fight, the cyborg suffers severe damage to its body, even more so
    when Pegasus security arrives along with a medically treated Ben Grimm.
    When Quasar hears that Deathlok has activated a self-destruct device he uses
    his Quantum Bands to destroy it's body, leaving its head intact for questioning.
    However, the cyborg has forseen this possibility and causes it's head to self-destruct
    leaving nothing behind to determine the cause of Deathlok's attack on the facility.
    While back in New York City, Thundra has begun practicing for her new career as a female wrestler for Oglethorpe, and is pitted against a group
    of female wrestlers known as the Grapplers (Poundcakes, Screaming Mimi, Letha and Titania) all of whom Thundra manages to defeat easily.

    Back at Pegasus, Thomas Lightener has ventured down into the Radioactive
    Disposal section to check and see if the Nth Projector had been discovered.
    Finding it unmolested, he calls his leader at Nth Command who demands that Lightner finish constructing the device himself
    and to initiate their contingancy plan that they had organized in the event that Deathlok had failed in it's mission.

    As Ben and Quasar greet Bill Foster who has come to bring the villain Atom Smasher into the Project's custody for study
    Lightner sneaks into the cell of another radioactive menace: Nuklo, the mutant son of the Whizzer and Miss America.
    He awakens the child like creature and opens up his cell in the hopes that the mutant
    will cause enough destruction around the compound for him to finish his plan.

    My favorite Deathlok moment came from Marvel Two-In-One #53:

    I'll always remember Deathlok because of this cliffhanger.
