Advanced Idea Mechanics can trace its roots back to World War II when Baron Strucker organised a group of scientists to create weapons of war for Hydra. After the war, they began operating as a legitimate company while secretly funding Hydra’s activities. During a period of time when Strucker was believed dead, A.I.M. broke away and, under the leadership of M.O.D.O.K. began their own plans for world domination. A.I.M. have managed to create devices of great destructive potential – the Super Adaptoid; an android capable of copying the powers of those it fights, and the Cosmic Cube; a item capable of restructuring reality.
