Flashbacks demonstrate how Cliff Steele became Robotman. Initially, viewers were led to believe he crashed his car in a racing accident. Later on in the episode, it's revealed he survived the racing accident, only to not long after fatally crash his car with his wife and daughter inside. The Chief, Niles Caulder, found Cliff and was able to build him a new body as he could only save Cliff's brain.
