Real Name: Bernard Lachenay
Search for 'Manbot' on Amazon

When Department H salvaged the robot Box and reworked it into a new system, they merged one of their employees, Bernie Lachenay, into the robot and called the new machine Manbot.

Lachenay's life before becoming Manbot is still a mystery, and it remains uncertain if Lachenay himself remembers many details of his life prior to becoming Manbot. The Manbot process turned Lachenay into an emotionless machine; things he took great pleasure in no longer even illicit a smile.

During the first few missions of the newly reassembled Alpha Flight, Manbot's duties included covert recording of Alpha Flight's activities for later study back at Department H. Department H sent into the newly recruited Alpha Flight to stop a terrorist attack by the Zodiac to release chemical attacks across Canada. Manbot served on the overt part of the team that infiltrated the front of the observatory as a distraction so a back team could reconnoiter Zodiac operations. Manbot found the launch pad and disabled the chemical weapons, saving the lives of millions of Canadians. Manbot continued on many missions with Alpha Flight, still secretly observing them.

On one mission, Manbot was captured in the Microverse and taken to the Body Banks to be harvested. However, no organic material remained within Manbot to be harvested. He was imprisoned until freed by Alpha Flight. Alpha Flight returned from the Microverse to find Department H under attack by the Zodiac. Manbot took Flex to the secret Floor 13 and to the Monitor Bay where Flex activated the system enabling him to send a holographic image of himself to anyone with a Alpha Indetitag Implant. There, Flex guided the team and fed them information with the assistance of Manbot instructing him. After General Clarke's death, Manbot was reprogrammed. This allowed him to access files in his system he had not previously been able to access. Manbot played holographic transmissions of Clarke talking about each member of Alpha Flight. No longer used to spy on Alpha Flight, Manbot more fully integrated as part of the team. Manbot came close to sacrificing his mechanical "life" against Weapon X when he help stop a nuclear explosion. Department H engineers used a backup of the Manbot systems to salvage Manbot's existence. After be Manbot's reconstruction, he became part of the new Beta Flight. Manbot's current whereabouts are unknown.
