Robots Beginning with HHektor – A headless psychopathic cyborg from the sci-fi film ‘Saturn 3’ produced by Incorporated Television Company 1980.

Two romantically involved hydroponics scientists are producing food on one of Saturn’s moons. A madman called Benson assembles a Demi-God Series cyborg named Hektor, to increase output.

Hektor has an organic brain made from multiple human foetus.
After linking with Hektor to educate it in basic functions, the robot takes on Bensons ‘lunacy’ and lust for one of the scientists. The first victim is a small dog who becomes a small furry pizza under Hektors tread. Then Hektor kills a scientist, rips of his head and uses it for its own head!! (this is one scary film).

In Greek mythology, Hektor (or Hector) was a Trojan hero who fought for Troy in the Trojan War.

Hel – From the classic book, movie/film ‘Metropolis’ – by Fritz Lang.

Hel was the name of Joh Fredersens wife who died in childbirth. A mad scientist known as Rotwang who lost Hel to Joh Fredersen created a robot to be the likeness of Hel, however Fredersen the ruler of Metropolis commanded that Rotwang change the likeness to that of Maria, a spiritual leader of the workers to sabotage any revolt. However, the robot ‘Maria‘ has the opposite effect and creates a revolution.

Incidentally, Hel is also a goddess in Norse mythology who rules Heleim, the underworld and is the indifferent daughter of Loki.
