The Clockwork

Clockwork are one of the major enemy factions encountered in the online game, "City Of Heroes" and are named after the fact that they are advanced robots run by clockwork, despite often looking rather primitive Clockwork are capable of being a formidable opponent to the unwary or under-leveled heroes of Paragon City.

Often groups of Clockwork can be seen collecting metal and scraps, which can signal the beginning of an attempted invasion in which they will try to build a giant monster and unlike most giant monster encounters heroes are rewarded for preventing the creation of the monster rather than actually defeating it should the Clockwork succeed.

Clockwork are under the control of the arch-villain known as the Clockwork King, who is one of Paragon City's most dangerous opponents.
