Gonzo the Mechanical Bastard is a fictional character, a robot supervillain in the DC Universe. The character first appears in The Battle For Blüdhaven #1 (May 2006), and becomes the main villain of the Uncle Sam and the Freedom Fighters limited series (October 2006). It was created by Jimmy Palmiotti, Justin Gray, and Daniel Acuña.
Mr. Gray has asserted that the character concept for Gonzo was derived from a character proposal by Grant Morrison, which was to have been an update of Bozo the Iron Man, but the final concept became very different from the inspiration. 
Fictional character biography
Gonzo the Mechanical Bastard was created by the Mathemagicians of the Anti-Life Equation to spread chaos throughout Earth. In the aftermath of the chaos caused by Chemo being dropped onto the city of Blüdhaven, Gonzo managed to slip through a dimensional crack between this universe and the anti-matter universe. Father Time, the commanding officer of S.H.A.D.E., discovered him and started educating him, exposing to every piece of information known to man.
