GEARS is a technological genius. His first big invention came when he helped bring ROBO-J.O.E. to life by integrating human muscles and brain waves with Robotic Battle Armor and computer circuitry. This process led to the development of the Power Fighter units that operate as an extension of the pilot's own body...only with a lot more firepower and combat capabilities! This technological breakthrough earned Gears a place in the National Inventors Hall of Fame, as well as a place on Cobra's top-ten hit list!
No variations of Gears (v1) are known to exist.
