First up is Cerebro, a steel helmet that first popped up within the X-Males comics. Cerebro has a protracted and unusual historical past, so by the point MODOK finds it, the system is virtually an vintage. It made its first look in “X-Males #7” in 1964, when a younger Charles Xavier invented the Cerebro to detect mutants, particularly younger ones whose skills hadn’t manifested but. The primary model of Cerebro was an ESP system that might detect mind exercise from each people and mutants, and will additionally amplify mutants’ telepathic powers. A later model of Cerebro contained the extra means to repeat mutants’ minds, which Professor X used to attempt to resurrect his fallen college students.
In Cerebro’s early years, it was a helpful software for monitoring mutants who had gone lacking. Nonetheless, numerous supervillains, bent on exterminating mutants, tried to steal it. The X-Males destroyed the Cerebro to maintain it out of enemy arms and constructed an improved model. That one ended up changing into sentient and tried to manage all of humanity earlier than Professor X and the kid telepath Nina stopped it.
The model MODOK finds seems to be the unique Cerebro. Technically, that is an anachronism, as a result of the primary Cerebro was destroyed a long time earlier. It is also not the primary time it has been featured as an Easter egg lately – Deadpool wore the Cerebro in “Deadpool 2.”
