1987 Per Degaton time track 5. Released from prison after serving out the remainder of his ten year conviction of 1975, months tacked on, Scott Evil/Per Degaton decided to devote himself to the science of robotics, hoping to fix the robot Mekanique. Scott Evil realized that Rottwang had been like him, a time traveler who had been trapped in the past, when Mekanique had claimed to have circuitry to time travel, she may have been telling the truth. Per Degaton/Scott Evil had been hired by Heywood Industries to with the promise of having a free hand in research. However he soon discovered that Haywood had hired him to make him into a man of steel, to replace his natural skeleton with a metal skeleton. Blackmailed into carrying out the operation, it was a success due to the uncanny resilience of Haywoodís body. However Haywood began to slowly die when the operation was complete. Without bone marrow most of his immune system was compromised. Without knowing this, the aged Haywood embarked on a short lived career as a costumed vigilante with a ďsuperheroĒ team created from teenagers living in the Detroit area.
While Haywood was playing hero, Per Degaton/Scott Evil continued to work at Haywood and use its facilities to rebuild Mekanique. He learned of the work of Dr. Dolenz and made a raid on his laboratory. Dolenz was the true creator of the fembots. Dolenz sent a squad of robots to attack Haywood Industries. Haywood and his heroes were severely injured in the attack.
Having repaired Mekanique as best as he could, she told him that although her time traveling circuitry was not fully functional, she could probably use the chroniton discharge of time machine to jump start her temporal traveling capability. She would have to know the exact time and location of a time machineís arrival or departure. Scott Evil was able to boost her sensory apparatus so that she could pinpoint such a chronotron discharge.

She carries him from the hospital and towards the imminent chronotron discharge. The concussed Wildcat followed them.
Per Degaton/Scott Evil witnesses the arrival of his dying temporal twin. When the younger dying man grabbed onto his older self a sort of chain reaction occurred and both began to disappear. Mekanique used all of her remaining energy to stop this from happing. A temporal implosion occurred and Mekanique and the time booth disappeared. Scott Evil was torn asunder and remade. Scott Evil was younger than he had been and although authorities discounted Wildcatís story of doubles, time machines and robots as part of concussion delirium, the evidence against Per Degaton was enough to convict him of drug dealing. He spent another ten years in prison.
