An artificial being created by the terrorist group A.I.M. for their evil plans to assassinate Captain America, it holds a fragment of the Cosmic Cube that serves as its limitless power source and can copy the powers of any being it wants.
The Super-Adaptoid was created by Justin Hammer at the time when he collaborated with Red Skull when Justin Hammer auditioned to join the Cabal. He was defeated by Captain America. Red Skull later told M.O.D.O.K. that Justin Hammer has failed the audition while Super-Adaptoid has passed the audition. M.O.D.O.K. works to salvage Super-Adaptoid and get it under the Cabal's control.
Super-Adaptoid is unleashed under M.O.D.O.K.'s control to capture Aaron Reece (Molecule Man's son), but is weakened by Aaron by the time the rest of the Avengers arrive. After Aaron puts reality back to normal, Super-Adaptoid is dismantled by the Avengers. The Adaptoid was rebuilt in the episode "

When Red Skull activates a device that would send each of the Cabal members to a different world to conquer, Super-Adaptoid and M.O.D.O.K. were assigned Asgard. During the battle, Super-Adaptoid was beheaded by Thor.
Adapting to Change
A.I.M. built three new green Super-Adaptoids which are made of weird space-age tech liquid metal. They are capable of duplicating the powers and strength of their opponents. A.I.M. also upgraded the complex internal adapters and external structural integrity at the same time. They are not preprogrammed they copy powers on the fly in real time. The three Super-Adaptoids are capable of merging into a single entity around the Scientist Supreme, which is known as the Supreme Adaptoid. The Supreme Adaptoid is capable of temporarily splitting off two Super-Adaptoids as a whole or partially.
After the Avengers defeated the Supreme Adaptoid a broken Ultron absorbed it and repaired himself.
