A.I.M. Synthoids are a class of robots or androids used many times by the science-based terrorist organization A.I.M. Unlike traditional mechanical-based robots, Synthoids are chemical based. When first encountered (by Captain America and Nick Fury), an army of Synthoids was seen growing like plants in a glass-enclosed hydroponic garden. When defeated, they reverted to basic elements.
A number of variations of Synthoids have been used by A.I.M. These include the "super-synthoid" (a larger, more powerful version), the Attackoid, and thing synthoids patterned after Ben Grimm (the powerful super-hero known as the Thing).
In many cases, Synthoids appear to have very advanced, sophisticated programming, but they are apparently not sentient or particularly concerned with self-preservation. They are used as warriors, soldiers, agents and cannon fodder by A.I.M.
