The Hourman of the 853rd century is an android constructed by Tyler Chemorobotics. Hourman possesses the full range of emotions and human flaws that an ordinary human does. Nonetheless, the technology with which he was constructed is far advanced beyond anything conceivable in the 20th century.
It is thought that Metron had Hourman built to make it his replacement and apprentice. Rex Tyler (the original Hourman), who served as the biological template for the android, spent some time in the future and was involved in its construction.
