Abstract:

"The year is 1984. Washed-up mechanic Chuck Carducci is contacted by an old roommate from his MIT days to team up on a new project using cutting-edge artificial intelligence. With salvaged electronics from NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab, high-performance van parts, and a plutonium-ion battery dubiously procured by a mysterious financial backer, Chuck builds a robot so human, yet so powerful, it can only be called Vandroid! Chuck puts everything he ever wished he was into Vandroid, and the robot now has a chance to fulfill his creator's lost postential. Vandroid soon finds his place in the world by turning against the militarized corporate baddies who helped finance his creation. While stacking up dead enemy bodies and uncovering a ridiculous conspiracy, the robot rekindles the fire of Chuck's broken marriage, builds a squad of lethal companions called the Vanettes, and teams up with Chuck's best childhood friend to rain down plenty of fiery vengeance." -- Page [4] of cover.
