Steelhorn was created to be the last and greatest of the ABC Warriors, an indestructible robot armed with the Implosion Hammer, effectively the ultimate weapon, capable of destroying a regiment with one strike. Steelhorn fulfilled his creators' promise and ended the Volgan War, but in the peace that followed, his superiors betrayed him; Steel had become a pacifist after seeing the carnage he had wrought, and applied to be a fireman so that he could save lives instead of taking them, but his superiors tricked him into entering a furnace where he would be melted down, having been judged too dangerous to live. Unfortunately for them, Steelhorns creators had done their work too well: Steel was literally indestructible! The furnace melted his once handsome form, but he survived as a mass of living molten metal, a hate crazed creature called 'The Mess'! The Mess was found by the ABC Warrior Hammerstein, who had known Steelhorn, and it crawled into his warm gun barrel in order to stop itself solidifying. Hammerstein and the Warriors took the Mess with them on their mission to tame Mars, keeping him in a vacuum flask in the care of Mongrol and only releasing him for brief periods to cause havoc when needed. Eventually though, during an encounter with a malfunctioning giant robot named Mad George, which had been created with independently functioning brains in its limbs, the Mess's flask was jarred open and the molten creature flowed into George's circuitry, uniting the mad robot's brains for the first time and joining in a symbiotic relationship with the now cured George. When the Warriors left Mars, they left the Mess behind as a part of George.
Eventually, centuries later, the living soul of Mars-a creature called Medusa-rose up against the invading humans who were despoiling the planet, and resurrected Steelhorn (who had become a part of the planet when George was destroyed under as yet unrevealed circumstances) to be her agent. Steelhorn battled his former comrades the ABC Warriors, who had returned to Mars to establish order, but eventually agreed to rejoin them as long as their agenda and his were the same. He has also recovered his hammer, which was sent on ahead to Mars all those years before by the Warriors' commander, Colonel Lash, before Steelhorn became the Mess.
