Ten-For was an Autocron who tricked Machine Man into bringing him to earth by sending a message through an unknowing human pawn that his ship was crashing into a star. Arriving on Earth, Ten-For tried to kill the human he'd used as a conduit but was stopped by Mchine Man, but Ten-For paralysed him and left to begin plans for world domination. Ten-For went on a rampage but was confronted by a recovered Machine-Man. The pair were evenly matched and Ten-For planned to just wait it out for the arrival of the rest of the Autocron fleet To this end he surrendered to the army and tried to act like Machine Man had been the aggressor. Ten-For grew bored of the army and revealed his true plan and went on another rampage. Machine Man arrived and was able to take control of him and used him as a nuclear bomb against his own arriving fleet.
