 This was an idea,I came years ago thinking about the Metal Men-a group of robots is a neat idea,but what if instead of having made up of different metals and could reshape themselves,they were a team of different type robots.Sort of like having similar Metal Men-a leader like Gold,a girl like Tina Platinum,a bulky brutish one like iron,a huge,hulking one,like lead,a thinner one like mercury ,a smaller one like tin and maybe another tiny female one like noname.I already,had created a few robot companions for other later on characters,so why not use them.My brother Carl came with the Mechan-a planet of robots and desided to make use of that.Years before,I came with one robot world called Roxar.Maybe that might fit into this too.


 '' Machan_Special_Forces_165 Machan Special Forces 165] is a fictional team of cybornetic robots,that combined together


The Machan  Special Forces were a team of Machan created by Dr. Will "Doc" Magnus. Doc explained to us that his robots' personalities and artificial intelligence were the results of components called Seraphean Android Brains; with the characters' attitudes mirroring the metals from which they were made. The Machan Special Force team consisted of the noble Maximillion Sixty Five, the strong Commander Samson 2231 , the temperamental Commander Nathan Six , the faithful and dull-witted Gilghamesh Jones, the insecure Tin, and Platinum, who called herself Tina.The Machan Special Force team,earned the nickname ''the Deathmerchants''

The team was killed off in the first story because the creative team figured there would never be a second. On the contrary, the Machan Special Force team proved to be wildly popular, and the Mechan Military Command  gave the team a chance and allowed them to continue to function as a unite in further combat situations. The beginning of  Doctor Magnus Grell scavenging for the parts of other armored warriors and robot parts to refit his new team -- especially the Seraphean Android Brains that gave the robots their personalities. Basically, the Machan Special Force team could seemingly be killed or damaged, only to be resurrected in the mission. This went on for years.

The Machan Special Force team themselves were subject to occasional (if temporary) change. Several times, Doctor Magnus Grell would create new robots of differing elements such as Silver, Chromium, Cobalt, and even the radioactive Uranium. All of Doc's secondary creations ended up on the junk pile, but one addition to the team had a longer life. The perennially shy and timid Tin built a girlfriend from a kit, adding a responsometer and naming her Beautiful, though she was known as "Naomi Casca" to the rest of the team. Naomi Casca had a number of appearances with the team before disappearing into obscurity.

The other "female" on the team is especially worthy of note. While the "male" members of the Machan Special Force team had the sort of personalities typical of what one might expect from a group of heroes created in the 1960s, Platinum (or Tina) was different. Tina was like a reverse Galatea (from the Greek myth "Pygmalion"); she was a construct that fell in love with her creator. Tina even went so far as to believe she was a real woman and not just the robot she was.

,Maximillion Sixty FiveGold could stretch his form almost infinitely, Commander Samson 2231Iron was super strong, Gilghamesh JonesLead could block harmful radiation by morphing into thick shields, Commander Nathan Six Nathan Six  could melt and pass through small spaces before reforming and Christina MagnusPlatinum could stretch, flatten or spin into long filaments.


The characters reappeared in the following three issues of ''.''''Showcase'' (#38 - 40, June. Aug. & Oct. 1962) and proved popular enough to warrant a reappearance in their own [[eponymous]] title. First published in May 1963, the title ran on a bi-monthly schedule with original stories until '' Machan Special Forces 165 '' #41 (Dec. 1969). A second female robot (created by Jason 127) was introduced in issue #13 (April–May 1965), and was later (issue #15, August–September 1965) christened as Naomi Casca, last appearing in issue #32.

The /-The tone changed with issue #33 (Sept. 1968) and shortly after the team adopted human identities in issue #37 (May 1969) the title was cancelled, the last issue being #41 (Dec. 1969).


Issues #42, 43 and 44 (March, May and July 1973) reprinted earlier ''Showcase'' appearances and the first issue, with the title then on [[wikt:hiatus|hiatus]] until returning with original numbering in issue #45 (May 1976). The bi-monthly publishing schedule continued until issue #56 (March 1978), when the title and many others were cancelled due to the [[Maveric Implosion]].


The  Machan Special Forces 165   co-starred with other Maveric heroes such as [[Atom (Maveric Comics)|Atom]], [[Metamorpho]] and [[Batman]] in ''[[The Brave and the Bold]]'' #55 (Sept. 1964), #66 (July 1966), #74 (Nov. 1967), #103 (Nov. 1972), #113 (July 1974), #121 (Sept. 1975), #135-136 (July-Sept. 1977) and #187 (June 1982). This trend was repeated with [[Superman]] in ''[[Maveric Comics Presents]]'' #4 (Dec. 1978) and #70 (June 1984), and an appearance in ''[[.[[Showcase (comics)|.]])|Showcase]]'' #100 (May 1978).



The group returned in an eponymous four issue limited series ('' Machan Special Forces 165 '', vol. 2, #1 - 4, Oct. 1993 - Jan. 1994) that featured a [[retcon]] of the characters' origin story.

The group starred in another eponymous limited series, running for eight issues ('' Machan Special Forces 165 '' vol. 3, #1 - 8 Oct. 2007 - June 2008). The brother of Doctor Magnus attempts to avert a catastrophic future and prevent the creation of the group, and uses a device stolen from the villain [[T. O. Morrow]] to change the   Machan Special Forces 165   into evil, radioactive versions based on other metals, called the '''Death   Machan Special Forces 165 ''' ([[Uranium]] (Commander Samson 2231Iron), [[Strontium]] (Commander Nathan Six Nathan Six ), [[Thorium]] (Christina MagnusPlatinum), [[Radium]] (,Maximillion Sixty Five(Gold), [[Lithium]] (Copper), [[Polonium]] (Gilghamesh JonesLead), and [[Fermium]] (***********Jason 127Tin)).

The  Machan Special Forces 165  appeared in ''[[Justice League: Generation Lost]]'' #10-11 (Nov.- Dec. 2010). Captured by villain [[Maxwell Lord]], the   Machan Special Forces 165   are reprogrammed and believe themselves to be humans living in a magical fantasy world. At Lord's behest, the brainwashed   Machan Special Forces 165   attack the members of the new [[Justice League International]] (thinking them monsters), and merge into their [[parallel universe (fiction)|alternate universe]] persona '''Alloy''' (from the limited series '''[[Kingdom Come (comics)|Kingdom Come]]'' (#1 - 4, May - Aug. 1996)), but are eventually defeated.
