Albert is a fictional character appearing in Marvel Comics, and an ally of Wolverine. The character first appeared in Wolverine vol. 1 #37 suspended in a tank of liquid. Albert is a sapient automaton or android.
Albert (a robot double of Wolverine) was created along with his counterpart, Elsie-Dee, by Donald Pierce. These androids were designed to kill Wolverine. The Wolverine double was to act as the bait and Elsie-Dee (who outwardly appears to be a 5 year old girl) was to trap Wolverine in a burning building, where she would detonate with sufficient force to kill him. Initially, Albert had a primitive artificial brain with limited higher logic functions and no emotions, and he was not referred to as Albert, but as "Dummy".
Pierce's plan to kill Wolverine failed because one of the Reavers, Bonebreaker, accidentally gave Elsie-Dee the maximum artificial intelligence one of Pierce's automatons was capable of. As a result Elsie-Dee eventually found a way to defuse her detonation sequence and enhanced the primitive intelligence of her counterpart, giving him intelligence beyond even hers. It was at this point that Elsie named him Albert, after Albert Einstein. Having met Wolverine, he and Elsie-Dee decided that he was a noble person and did not deserve to die and consequently abandoned their mission.
The two robots risked their artificial lives several times for each other and for Wolverine. At some point they traveled in time and had several adventures, even teaming up with an old enemy of Wolverine's, Bloodscream.
