Voltix is villain that had attempted to destroy Hero Factory multiple times.
Voltix was running a job with Splitface when they were attacked by Preston Stormer, who said he was a Hero representing Hero Factory. Voltix and Splitface attacked Stormer and got the upper hand before Thresher arrived attaching a mine to Voltix. Splitface fled and Thresher captured Voltix, revealing the mine was a bluff. Voltix was put in a plastic cell on Asteroid J-54. Later XT4 arrived to break Voltix and Toxic Reapa out, and did so. However they were confronted by Dunkan Bulk and Von Ness, so XT4 released more prisoners and the three went to escape through the roof. There they met Von Ness, but the Hero let them pass. They got in XT4's Drop Ship and met with the rest of Black Phantom's new Legion of Darkness. The incident on the asteroid led to Hero Factory shutting down, so Voltix went with the Legion to take Hero Factory itself. Voltix went with Speeda Demon, Toxic Reapa, and Thornraxx to enter the Assembly Tower. After Toxic Reapa threw Thornraxx out of the craft, the three crashed in the Assembly Tower. They encountered Thresher, but strapped him into the Assembly Tower and planned to use it in reverse. Black Phantom arrived, but he was trailed by the rest of Alpha 1 Team. Stormer revealed Black Phantom intended to betray Voltix and the others, and Voltix attacked Black Phantom. In the chaos, Voltix was arrested and interred on Asteroid J-54 yet again, but he escaped.
In order to initiate a breakout, Voltix pretended to be caught by Hero Factory Heroes Daniel Rocka and William Furno, and placed into their Storage Facility prison. Shortly after being locked in his cell, Voltix triggered the Black Hole Orb Staff, which blew a hole in the roof and created an escape route for all of the villains, who broke free of their confinement. Voltix was confronted by Rocka, but he managed to elude the Hero and enter the black hole.
Voltix traveled to the planet Tansari VI, attempting to disrupt the power supply of their energy collection array and create a superweapon for his own personal use. Jimi Stringer followed Voltix to the area, in order to apprehend him. Stringer tried to capture Voltix using his newly acquired Hero Cuffs, but Voltix used his electricity to disable the cuffs. Escaping through the mist, Voltix began drawing energy from the array into his blaster, incapacitating Stringer with the power. However, Stringer discovered that energy cells present on the planet could absorb Voltix's electrical blasts, repeatedly using them until Voltix had run out of energy. Stringer then recovered his Hero Cuffs, and used them to apprehend Voltix, as well as unplugging his volt switches. Voltix was returned to the Hero Factory by Stringer, but escaped and was later listed as still on the loose.
Abilities and Traits
Voltix possesses electrical elements, including a voltage booster switch. His manipulation of electricity allows him to create electrical projections, ones that can bypass the bars on Hero Factory jail cells. He is a cunning villain, manipulating his opponents and helping to orchestrate the mass breakout of Hero Factory, a move unprecedented at the time. Voltix feeds off energy, and enough energy consumption could keep him alive indefinitely.
Voltix is armed with a Shooting Volt Blaster and a Lightning Whip. The Volt Blaster is a rare weapon that causes paralysis in its targets, and the Lightning Whip is a tool that allows Voltix to absorb or output any amount of power.
Set 6283 Voltix was released in the summer of 2012, as part of the second wave in Hero Factory's Breakout line. The set 61 had pieces, including a spherical ammo piece that can be shot from his launcher when the sides are squeezed.
