Macro Warriors are giant robots created by Third World, and are the crowning technological achievement of that subversive organization. Of course, that doesn't mean they aren't a little buggy from time to time. After all, this is Third World we're talking about here.
A Macro Warrior is controlled by a pilot stationed in the command module of the robot's head. Its primary weapon is its tremendous size and bulk. However, Macro Warriors are equipped with the ability to fire their fists as projectiles. Called the Fist Shooter, this mechanism includes a homing beacon that locks the fist back into place after impact with its target. Macro Warriors are also capable of flight via rocket-powered Boot Boosters located in their feet.
The Macro Warriors made a very public debut when Third World launched a full-scale attack on Major City with a trio of the metallic monoliths. This brazen strike united many heroes to combat the Macro Warriors in an epic battle, and led directly to the formation of the Invincible Alliance. Is this another example of Third World's exceedingly bad planning, or just their streak of bad luck continuing unabated? Really, take your pick.
The fates of all three Macro Warriors have been documented. One was demolished during the fight in Major City and reduced to scrap. A second currently occupies an underground silo on Paul (Captain Satellite) Mann's estate as a sort of trophy. The third was taken into C.H.I.E.F. custody and initially stored at their central offices in Pongo, Virginia. This Macro Warrior was stolen by renegade C.H.I.E.F. operative Bo Nagy, and the giant gorilla Gargantua Maximus had to be coaxed into vanquishing it. It was subsequently returned to C.H.I.E.F., dented but intact, and moved to a facility in an undisclosed location.
Third World has not unleashed Macro Warriors since their unsuccessful Major City offensive. It's entirely probable they only had three anyway. No one knows if they've gone back to the drawing board for a second series of the robots or if they've junked the whole line as a waste of time and resources.
