G.I. Robot is the name of a series of robots created by the U.S. military to fight for the Allies during World War II. The very first G.I. Robot was a prototype nicknamed Joe. The second G.I. Robot was called Mac who was specially designed to participate in far more deadlier missions, but was ultimately destroyed in Dinosaur Island. The better known G.I. Robot was J.A.K.E. I which served in the Pacific Theatre before sacrificing its life to save its companion Sgt. Coker. J.A.K.E. I was replaced by its successor J.A.K.E. II, who eventually became a member of the Creature Commandos. G.I. Robot was created by Robert Kanigher and Ross Andru, first appearing in Star-Spangled War Stories #101. (1961) ||
