Scientific genius and inventor Dr. Will Magnus created a team of kooky robots known as The Metal Men. Each of the six robots’ abilities and distinct personalities reflected the properties of their namesake metallic element. Gold, Iron, Mercury, Lead, Tin, and Platinum constantly aggravated Doc Magnus with their displays of emotion, a result, he claimed, of the faulty “responsometers” he had installed in them. But no matter how many times the Metal Men were destroyed and rebuilt in the course of their adventures, their human traits (and Doc’s annoyance) never diminished.
