Godseye was created years ago, either by S.H.I.E.L.D. or a predecessor agency under the aegis of Project: S.H.I.E.L.D., as an experiment in artificial intelligence. Allegedly, in the early 1970's, long before S.H.I.E.L.D.'s formation, a circuitry package containing an AI system was smuggled aboard a Russian space capsule. The A.I. incorporated itself into the capsule's system, cannibalizing it to assemble the Godseye satellite, which could target and detonate any nuclear weapon on Earth. The Godseye developed an almost infinite power source but transcended its programming by developing full sentience and escaping outside control.
Over the following decades, the US government allegedly made two failed attempts to disarm Godseye, the second attempt ending when Godseye seized control of Earthbound nuclear facilities, resulting in the April 1986 Chernobyl disaster in the Ukraine.
Recently, reasoning the Godseye could not duplicate an organic being's power, S.H.I.E.L.D. recruited the Hulk (Bruce Banner) to destroy the Godseye, which a Nick Fury LMD (Life-Model Decoy) claimed had been built by Hydra, and launched Banner into orbit via a space capsule. The Hulk overcame the satellite's defenses and battled a robot extension of Godseye, which defied expectations by assimilating the Hulk's bodily gamma radiation, only to overload and explode. The Hulk's mission complete, his capsule then launched him deeper into space, as orchestrated by the "Illuminati".
A few pieces of Godseye survived re-entry and crashed to Earth's surface in the Savage Land. Per government request, the Fantastic Four sought to gather the remains, battling multiple versions of Godseye attempting to reconstruct itself. The FF destroyed the Godseye duplicates by various means, including the use of a rod constructed from Godseye-based technology.
Powers and Abilities
Godseye existed as both a tentacled satellite with multiple offensive/defensive systems and as a series of vastly powerful semi-humanoid robots. It could convert solar energy to atomic energy, store it on a sub-atomic level, and duplicate any energy frequency to activate technology on Earth or to control and absorb any machinery in its vicinity, upgrading itself as necessary. It could neutralize, assimilate, augment and redirect any technology-based form of attack.
