Aaron Stack was born to Dr. David Stack and an unknown mother. He was diagnosed early on in life with bipolar disorder, which, in addition to alienating his mother, went on to make his life a living hell. He found himself psychologically stunted and crippled, and unable to live a normal life, much to the despair of his father.
After his suffering the worst bipolar episode of his life and making threats on his life, David realized that the best way to balance his son and his work would be to literally fuse them. He brought his son to his work after hours, and hooked him up to the Adamantium prototype Machine Man Z2P45-9. He attempted to transfer his son into the robot by electrocuting him and placing the currents from his son into the robot, powering it up with Aaron's thoughts inside. However, Stack's colleague Joe Kragg was also at the lab late, and noticed what the doctor was doing. He decided to blow the lab's electrical power in order to ensure the robot depowered. Instead, the lab was overloaded with electricity, killing both of the Stacks and awakening the robot, seemingly successfully containing the soul of Aaron Stack.

All those of a conventional human.
- Bipolar Disorder: Aaron Stack suffers tremendously from bipolar disorder. Despite being medicated and counseled on and off, Aaron still suffered immensely from mania and depressive tendencies. Among other things, his bipolarity had him convinced he was a robot, sent to evaluate humanity by God. His disease crippled his day-to-day life.
Equipment: None known.
Weapons: None known.
Due to the unfortunately severe nature of Aaron's bipolar disorder, it is impossible to wholly analyze his day-to-day personality. During his manic times, he was incredibly violent towards those who would come too close to him or his father, and was incredibly manic about religion. During his depressive states, he would proclaim himself hell-bent on the extermination of the human race. In the rare instances where he was well-medicated and calm, what his father described as "normal Aaron," he was devoted to God and to his family, and was always overly cautious about himself and his condition, overly apologetic for whatever things he had done unwittingly. Little more is known about how Aaron Stack comported himself.
- Aaron Stack is the Earth-166 counterpart of Aaron Stack (Earth-616) (better known as Machine Man). In the comics, Aaron was merely a name X-51 gave himself. Here that was given greater significance.
- This character's idea came about when trying to figure out a way to incorporate Draft227's alternate version of Amygdala into the strictly-Marvel SigmaVerse. Given the common first name, X-Factor had the idea to merge them. The resulting idea involved a mentally ill patient who was experimented on by the Leader, and later placed into a robot body. The Hulk aspect was removed to create the full Machine Man seen here, and the Hulk aspects were solely retained for SigmaVerse's Aaron Stack.
- Aaron is only technically ever seen once, in the above image. This is a hazy recollection that appeared to Machine Man during a bout of alcohol-fueled intoxication. Every other time we see him, he is merely a long-haired shadow or silhouette. This is meant to cause doubt in the readers about Aaron's true visage/identity, in how he was lost to the disease. X-Factor does, however, intend for this image to be Aaron's true appearance.

- Aaron's bipolar tendencies are based on that of Russell Brand; a celebrity who Uncanny X-Factor found annoying but still somehow captivating.
- Aaron's image is a drawing of Caleb Landry Jones, best known among Marvel fans as playing Banshee from X-Men: First Class.
