Byte was created by the Mad Thinker
to be ten times more powerful than his Gammadroid
predecessors after absorbing sonic energy from Klaw
(Ulysses Klaw), who wanted to relinquish his powers, but the process was interrupted by Lyra
and the She-Hulk, looking to apprehend the last of the criminal Intelligencia
. When the She-Hulks destroyed the Thinker's Switzerland lab, the unfinished Byte attacked but was defeated when She-Hulk forcibly used Klaw's power against it.
