Synopsis
Special Agent Jack Kubrick is given the assignment of finding out what happened to Machine Man after his last public appearance. This includes interviews with people who knew him. He also finds that the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants is also looking for Machine Man, for their own reasons. After finding Machine Man's head, Jack is fatally shot by Mystique. Still alive, Jack puts the robotic head where his head had been, only to discover that he is Machine Man.

Indexer Notes

The name "Jack Kubrick" is a reference to Jack Kirby (who created Machine Man in the comic book "2001: A Space Odyssey #8") and Stanley Kubrick (who directed the movie "2001: A Space Odyssey"). This book is part of the M-Tech Line published by Marvel.
