Robotman (Clifford “Cliff” Steele) is a cyborg superhero in the DC Comics Universe. He is best known as a member of the Doom Patrol, being the only character to appear in every version of the team since he, and the team, were introduced together in June 1963. Cliff Steele became Robotman, initially dubbed Automaton, after the daredevil and race car driver was in an accident during the Indianapolis 500, destroying his body. Caulder subsequently placed Cliff’s intact brain into a robotic body. After the operation, Cliff suffered from frequent depression because he viewed himself as less than human.
