Black Phantom is a powerful villain who helped mastermind a mass breakout of the Hero Factory Storage Facility prisons.
Black Phantom in the Assembly Tower
Black Phantom was part of a conspiracy to orchestrate a massive prison break from the Hero Factory in order to steal the building's structural plans. After the villain Voltix triggered Von Nebula's Black Hole Orb Staff, the staff created a massive vortex that blew apart the ceiling of the Factory. Every prisoner escaped into the vortex during the chaos, and all Heroes were recalled to be sent on individualized missions to recapture the criminals.
While the prison was abandoned, Black Phantom secretly infiltrated the Factory through the hole in the ceiling, and set his Arachnix drone loose in the building. When all Heroes had been dispatched on their missions, the Arachnix captured and immobilized the Mission Managers, while Black Phantom activated the Factory's failsafe shield, cutting off all contact with the outside. However, Rocka, on a covert mission for the Hero Recon Team, had disobeyed orders and remained behind in the Factory, and began working with Chief Mission Manager Nathaniel Zib to undermine Black Phantom's efforts.
Black Phantom used his new access to the Hero Factory server to copy and transmit the structural plans for the Factory to an ally, before discovering that Zib was in contact with Rocka. In an attempt to halt the Hero's progress through the Factory, Black Phantom sent his Arachnix drone out. However, Rocka was able to gain access to Akiyama Makuro's office and disable the shield, allowing his returning allies - Preston Stormer, Mark Surge, Nathan Evo, and William Furno - to enter the Factory and regroup as a team.
Black Phantom installed himself in the Assembly Tower, hoping to absorb enough energy from it to obliterate the Factory. When confronted by the Alpha 1 Team, Black Phantom sent his Arachnix swarms to slow them down while he increased his power levels. While the rest of the team took on the Arachnix, Rocka confronted Black Phantom, though in his powered-up state, the villain easily gained the upper hand in their fight. However, at Evo's suggestion, Rocka continued plugging Black Phantom into the tower, overloading his system, and allowing the villain to be defeated and captured.
Abilities and Traits
Black Phantom is an extremely intelligent villain, helping to organize and take advantage of an unprecedented breakout. He also possesses great strength, enough to wield the massive staff that he carries. His impressive size also lends to his fearsome reputation.
Black Phantom wields the heavy Razor Sabre Mace Staff in one hand, and owns a custom built Arachnix drone, which can multiply itself and target Black Phantom's enemies. He is also equipped with two sabre strikers on his back.
Set 6203 Black Phantom was released in the first half of 2012 as the largest set of the "Breakout" line, and the only boxed set for that wave. The set contains 124 pieces, including a Hero Core printed with a 500-point code for use in the online game Breakout on HeroFactory.com. However, the Hero Core is not used in the construction of the set. Black Phantom's Arachnix drone can fire a spherical ammunition piece when its mandibles are squeezed.
