A Cyberman was collected by galactic scrap merchants, Flotsam and Jetsam, as they had a lucrative side business collecting inert Cybermen, reprogramming them and selling them as butlers. The pair captured the Fourth Doctor and his TARDIS and brought them aboard their ship Drifter, where the Doctor accidentally re-activated the Cyberman. It stole the TARDIS with Jetsam inside. As the Doctor, Flotsam and the robot, Dutch, tracked the TARDIS in the Drifter, the Cyberman piloted the TARDIS to remote planet AS4, at the site of the wrecked command ship of a long-lost Cyber-Fleet.
The Cyberman ordered Jetsam to restore his long-inactive Cyber-Leader Zogron to function, with the ambition of rebuilding a Cyber-army that would rule Time and Space via the TARDIS. Jetsam did what he did best, reactivating Zogron, who then infuriated the Cyberman by offering him a before-dinner sherry. The Drifter landed nearby, and Dutch destroyed the Cyberman by coating it in quick-setting polymer paint. (COMIC: Junk-Yard Demon)
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
This Cyberman was drawn with a combination of design elements from the species' first televised appearances, with the headpiece and flexible face from The Tenth Planet and the chest unit and sleeve hosing from The Moonbase and The Tomb of the Cybermen. While a mostly unique design, Cybernaut Zogron likewise inherits the same elements.
