Rescue the scientists from the Clockwork


There's been a Clockwork attack on the university campus! The engineering department was hosting a robotics seminar, and several of the speakers were kidnapped by those stange Clockwork robots. I need you to rescue those scientists from the Clockwork, Character. Paragon City won't lose her greatest minds on my watch.

Mission Acceptance

Watch out for the big Clockwork robot known as Copperknot/Rebar/Alloy. From what I understand, he's pretty dangerous.

Unnecessary Solicitation

PCU is counting on you to bring the Dean of Engineering back in one piece.

Mission Objective(s)

A pleading voice goes totally unanswered.

  • Defeat Copperknot and its minions
    • 5 scientists to save

You rescued the kidnapped scientists from the Clockwork.

The dean's story
When you rescued the Dean of Engineering, he told you:

'This may sound crazy, but I think they wanted revenge! The five of us hold patents for the most advanced robots in use today. I think the Clockwork King is angry that we're receiving credit for our work, while he's regarded as a madman!'


So, the dean thinks the Clockwork King is jealous of the scientists he kidnapped. I suppose that makes sense. After all, the King has produced some of the most ingenious robots on the planet. If he hadn't retreated into villainy, he'd probably be given a Nobel prize!
