  • Machinesmith is a supervillain in the Marvel Universe. He specializes in robotics, and is able to make convincing doubles of other superhumans. His own mind was later transferred to a robotic body. Barry Windsor-Smith has stated that back in Daredevil #50, Saxon was supposed to be presented as gay; however, he admits that his art wasn't good enough to get the point across. Other issues have since revealed his sexuality more directly, such as Captain America #368 and Iron Man #320.
  • Samuel "Starr" Saxon was a master robot-maker whose ability even rivaled that of Doctor Doom. He once tried to fight Daredevil as "Mister Fear" but fell of the flying platform he used. His robot servants found him and loaded his mind into a computer. Saxson, able to move by creating robots which are possessed by his mind, decided to use his genius intellect for his own personal gain. He did this by offering his robots' services to any of his underworld clients. However he got sick of his "life" and tried to kill himself by using the robots, but failed. He then revived Dragon Man to lure Captain America to his base and tricked him into destroying the computer. While dying, Machinesmith apologized for his trick and told Captain America not to worry that he killed somebody.
