History: In the future, people can buy robotic assassins known as Scuds out of vending machines, which can be programmed to destroy any target, then self-destruct once their target expires. One particular Scud, a Heart Breaker Series 1373 model, was hired to eliminate Jeff, a crazy, plug-headed, misnamed, female mutant, but during a prolonged battle with her, Scud spotted himself in a mirror, and noticed the label on his back stating that he would self-destruct once his target was terminated. Unwilling to die, Scud shot Jeff's arms and legs off, then placed her on life-support in hospital so that both of them could live. Needing to pay for her monthly medical bills, he became a mercenary and killer-for-hire.
