the Dead Skull thinks about The Artifact
An interesting contraption this metal man. It seems to be powered
by both magical and technological means. It's powers suggest a
technological design that was improved by magic at some point (a
sonic cannon that can disrupt magical force walls, for instance.)
Its origin is unknown,
having arrived to this world like I, in the chaos of the Project
Atlas explosion. I sense that it may have been a weapon of war
in some distant universe or perhaps a very powerful body guard
of some sort.
I have tried on several occasions to capture and unlock the secret
of it's origin and power, but to no avail. Each time either the
thing has escaped with the aid of its allies the Vanguard or
with an amazing happenstance of bad luck on my part. Believe me
when I say that I will eventually disect the truth of this machine.
