Several years after the great Chicken Cataclysm
...that resulted in the world’s vast and unchangeable Obesity. Norman, the “The First True Robot”, was dejected (despite his best efforts not to feel ‘human’ emotions) after discovering he is indeed ‘not’ a robot. However, he had success dropped upon him, when he unexpectedly won the lottery... twice, then robbed a bank for good measure. Using his winnings/stealings, Norman proceeded to procure a small, uncharted island off the coast of New Zealand called “Australia”, and hired a team of scientists to make him ‘into’ what he has always dreamed.... a robot. Using his entire fortune, the team of scientists (Who Norman would eventually dub ‘Team 01-589-289-RQ-Fiver”) proceeded to cyberize him. One Adamantium skeleton, a entire Fiber Optic nervous system, a 10-million processes per nanosecond Cyberbrain, roughly twenty miles of cable, fourteen toasters (to satisfy the scientists’ natural craving for toast), a Fusion reactor, and nine D cell batteries (in order to run the blinky lights on his body) later, the scientists succeeded, and begin to fit Norman with every mechanized do-hicky known to science.
