They may be clanky, slow and individually dull-witted, but the mysterious mechanoids known as the Cognomen are far from being pushovers. Powerful, relentless and virtually indestructable, this rivet-studded fighting force can go toe-to-toe with even the most powerful of the Fight Squad's meta-humans, and work with an eerie coordination to steal technology, fuel and other key resources (or just wreak havoc) to aid their unknown end-game. It is not clear exactly how many Cognomen there are - each is stamped with a large number, and examples from 1 thru 12 have been encountered - or, in fact, who they are even working for. None of the main supervillain cabals have laid claim to them; and when they appear, the Cognomen tend to plow through anything and anyone in their path regardless of good / evil affiliation.... So who is their master? A known villain, holding their cards close to their chest? A hidden menace, unknown to even the cabals themselves? Or are the Cognomen linked by some analog-era hive-mind, and have their own grand scheme in preparation? One thing is for certain: unless you really want a good clobbering, steer clear of these radical robots!
