Quote:All the computerspeak was fun. Jocasta's battery life was... interesting. It's a neat handicap but the precident for zero rechargability by a number of energy source means is... debatable. Has she ever run out of juice in an Avengers back issue? Don't worry Aaron'll do right by Iron Man, Jo.
I can't recall it happening before, but I think I can come up with a decent No-Prize for it: Ultron normally powers himself with nuclear energy, and presumably built Jocasta with the same energy source. This is inherently dangerous to the environment, especially since Avengers see combat so often. So when Stark built her a body, he did so using some environmentally safe battery. Alas, her green, environment-friendly battery can run out of power much more easily than Ultron's nuclear furnace.
So, yeah, upside of her new design is that if Mandarin shows up and smashes her power-supply with a karate-chop, no humans in the area end up getting cancer. Downside, she can now just keel over if she isn't careful to recharge,
Nice theory. I do find it rather odd that a robot would be forgetful about recharging their batteries to full though.
If the robot were in battle and couldn't access a power source that would be one thing, but once any danger was passed, their own preservation routines should direct them to recharge.
Instead she's all distracted and upset due to Aaron....I guess this makes her more human in terms of behavior.
Or perhaps it is sabotage by the Controller.
