Morph, not a robot.

He could be, though.  I like the use of the character of Morph in The Exiles.  He has the potential to be one of the most-powerful mutants ever, but he mostly provides comic-relief in the stories.  I think, with his shape-shifting powers, that he’s very cleverly used.  He almost never changes shape in the panel, but instead he looks totally different from panel-to-panel, providing some much-needed visual “surprises” in comics.  Here I’ve got him morphing in-between a couple of different ideas.  The Thing hand is my favorite, and the whole reason I wanted to draw him today.  For some reason, the combination of hula skirt with the goat legs really creeps me out.
