Synopsis:
Machine Man scans the mind of the patient in room zero and projects the image he reads onto the wall. The picture shows a spaceship caught in the gravity well of a sun in a far off galaxy. The alien voice commands Machine Man to build a Trans-Dimensional Space-Time Bridge and provides instructions for its manufacture. The dictatorial tone of the alien voice causes Machine Man to doubt the nature of the alien, but he builds the Bridge anyway, as to refuse to rescue the alien would not be humane. Upon completion of what he calls "The Instrument", a dimensional gateway abruptly opens and Machine Man and Dr. Spalding are almost pulled through into the void of space. Machine Man disables the Instrument and the gateway disappears. He modifies the Instrument so that they will be able to bring the alien through without having to exchange places with him across the dimensional gateway. When Machine Man activates the Instrument, the alien appears. He is Ten-For, Holocaust Specialist First Class, a Galactic Rover for a race of robot beings called the Autocron Empire. Machine Man prevents Ten-For from murdering the patient that had served as Ten-For's distress beacon. Ten-For and Machine Man argue and are on the brink of a fight. Suddenly, Colonel Kragg, who has tracked Machine Man to the Central City Sanatorium, orders his men to fire the Sonic Howitzer. The blast strikes Ten-For, who shakes it off. Ten-For accuses Machine Man of arranging an ambush and attacks, pinning a vertigo inducer to Machine Man's forehead. Ten-For smashes through the wall and launches into battle. The paralyzed Machine Man urges Dr. Spalding to remove the vertigo inducer so they can stop Ten-For from wreaking destruction on the planet.
