Deathlok comes from the Future. That means that that August kid is going to live out his life in the TVMU well past the present day of what we are viewing, then they'll slap some grey into his hair, backstep, and it'll be (seeming so) 45 year old August playing Deathlok whining about how shitty the future is and that every bugger is making the wrong decision. Originally Deathlok was white from the future. Early Nineties they had a modern time black guy become Deathlok. Early naughties Joe Casey had a dead SHIELD agent accidentally freejack the Deathlock body, who then had a very entertaining war with the Clown from the Circus of Crime (No seriously, Imagine if Magatron's 2nd Starscream was competent and very well armed.) Mere months ago, "Deathlocket" was an awkward, childish, 14 year old girl from modern day, grafted into a demure version of the Deathlok weapons system, who was forced to play out a version of the Hunger Games in the popular maxiseries Avengers Arena, by Arcade. So many, many, many dead children. During the current run of Wolverine and the X-Men, they have a Humanitiless Deathllok as a Professor of Future History, who during the course of any moment is comically reeling off probabilities of how that moment will spin off into some god awful horrid doomsday scenario.
