Metalheads nature as a synthetic being in the 2003 TV series is not discussed, but the rest of his origin story is broadly in line with the original Mirage comics. In the 2003 TV series, he was a member of the original Justice Force and remains a member of the current Justice Force along with the 2003 incarnation of Ananda under the leadership of the Silver Sentry, making him the only member to serve in both incarnations of the team. Neither incarnation seems to have aged in the intervening decades; in the case of the first incarnation, it was stated that this was due to his artificial nature.
Metal Head was part of the final attack on the Tengu Shredder.
Metal Head appears in the episode The Journal.
