ISAAC is a fictional character in the Marvel Universe.
Fictional character biography
ISAAC is a complex and intelligent computer system which fills almost the entire interior of Saturn's moon, Titan. ISAAC controls Titan's artificial biosphere environment and all mechanical operations on Titan.
ISAAC observed a conflict between Mar-Vell, the Avengers, and Thanos. Thanos later reprogrammed ISAAC with a virus prior to his death, to menace the Eternals of Titan. The computer enslaved the Titanian Eternals. ISAAC dispatched Stellarax and Lord Gaea, and then Elysius, and finally Chaos against Mar-Vell and Drax. Eros, Mentor, and Elyuis eliminated the virus in ISAAC's system, and Mar-Vell defeated Stellarax. The computer was then restored to its original benevolent programming.
Some time later, ISAAC took on an android form, and allied itself with Stellarax, Chaos, and Lord Gaea, in a renewed attempt to carry out Thanos's will. ISAAC then went mad when Mar-Vell forced it to experience the totality of life. ISAAC gave up its android form, and its minions were defeated.
Powers and abilities
ISAAC is a vast supercomputer which honeycombs the moon of Titan, as well as controls it. ISAAC has a vast range of computational functions, most of which have not been catalogued. Its power source is the thermal energy found at Titan's core. ISAAC is stationary; however, it has been observed to project its holographic representation as far as Earth. This holographic projection takes the form of a humanoid figure in order to facilitate communications with and observation of humanoid life forms.
ISAAC has the ability to take an android form, Isaac-Prime, which has superhuman strength, stamina, durability, and reflexes.
