The Mad Thinker created the Awesome Android using DNA replication notes stolen from Mister Fantastic. Splicing ape DNA with unstable molecules, the Thinker created an organic body in which he placed a computerized "brain" along with a solar charger; ultimately creating an artifical being that was part robot and part android. The Thinker used the Awesome Android to commit crimes, but was stopped by the Fantastic Four. The Thinker continued to use the Android, until he built more effective robots. Later, the Super-Adaptoid used the Android in his group of robots, Heavy Metal. In a battle with the Avengers, Namor ripped off the Android's head and let it's body sink into the ocean. The Android began calling himself Awesome Andy, and took a job working for the law offices of Goodman, Lieber, Kurtzberg, and Holliway. Andy was a hard worker, and everyone at work got along well with him. Andy wore a chalkboard to communicate with other workers. Although he was gravely injured in a battle with Titania, Mr. Holliway threatened to sue Reed Richards for all he is worth until he agreed to repair Andy.
Awesome Android followed Mad Thinker when he joined the Future Foundation in Reed Richards' attempt to defeat the other Richards from other realities that treatened this universe. After the appeareance of the Inhumans at High Evolutionary's city, Awesome Android was captive at Attilan along with Mad Thinker and El Diablo.
