TORQ III is an incredibly advanced super-computer that can control and build machines. It is the most advanced computer to ever be created by humans. What could possibly be the danger in creating artificial intelligence of that magnitude? It's not like someone with a nuclear weapon on his arm could take control of it. Right?
The Transformers cartoonEdit
TORQ III was created by American scientists at Quantum Laboratories. Megatron reprogrammed it with his personality and instincts. Megatron then ordered TORQ III to take control of the facility by commanding all the machines inside with Remote Control Circuit Linkers. Optimus Prime was able to get close to TORQ III by pretending to be under the influence of a Remote Control Circuit Linker. He then punched TORQ III's lights out. Dr. Paul Gates didn't think he would reactivate TORQ III until he could make him absolutely tamper-proof. Not a bad idea.
