Bucky Buenaventura was a young technological genius. He was the son of scientists and inventors Rudy and Gloria Buenaventura. Born and raised in New Mexico, Bucky soon found he was considerably smarter than his parents, and had to fix all their faulty contraptions. Instead of seeing him as a good thing, they were unable to handle him. So his parents sent Bucky to the Sorben Institute.

At the Sorben Institute, he came to a conflict with the others - he was by far the youngest, and arguably the smartest of the scientists employed by the Institute. One of his most powerful inventions - the Inductance Controller - caused his temporary banishment from the institute as a trial run in dean Donald Tannor's office caused all the machinery to go haywire.

On his way out, he first saw Zeta. Upon hearing the synthoid's speech synthesizer, Bucky concluded that Zeta was a robot, and hacked NSA files to find out more. Upon seeing Zeta's schematics, he though it'd be a good way to get back at everyone at the Institute. With his Inductance Controller, he hijacked Zeta's motor functions. At first, he used Zeta's weapons to destroy his colleagues' inventions, but after he learned Tannor stole the Controller's designs to win the Innovation Awards, he turned his attention to his former dean. Angered, he set Zeta on Tannor, intending to scare him into admitting that he stole his invention and others, which he broadcasted to the entire fair. He then had Zeta advance on Tannor, but Ro took control of Tannor's remote to knock Bucky down. Zeta then brought up his saw blades and scared Bucky into promising that he would never use his remote again. (Read more...)
