Core Crisis is the second comic in the Hero Factory comic series made by LEGO and published by DC Comics.

Plot Summary

Jimi Stringer, Dunkan Bulk, Mark Surge and Natalie Breez are heading to a future prison. As Breez reports heading to a medibot station, Surge looks up in fear at the presence of Corroder. Stringer notes that Corroder practically signed his mess. Surge dashes up to help the veterans, but Corroder melts the tie on a group of suspended girders, but Bulk knocks him back, taking the debris from Corroder's attack. After being asked for their help, Preston Stormer replies that he and William Furno must wait until their Hero Cores recharge. In the meantime, Surge tries to free Bulk to no avail, while Stringer distracts Corroder. Furno states that he is ready to launch, and leaves despite Stormer's warnings. Breez attempts to make it back in time to provide backup, but isn't fast enough. To avoid decimation, Bulk, Surge and Stringer link cores to form a Hero Cell, a protective force-field.

After flying towards Corroder, Furno ejects from his Hero Pod, and lands a surprise kick on Corroder's face. Corroder tries to shoot down the rookie, but misses, and gets another kick to the head. Furno bluffs that there are more heroes in the newly arrived Breez's ship, and asks if Corroder can handle that. Corroder replies that it doesn't matter, and uses a smoke screen to cover his escape. Bulk thanks the rookie for his help, and Surge reports back to Stormer. The Alpha Team leader thinks they are being played, and Furno wonders by whom.

Corroder is seen alone in a dark room. He reports that he caused much destruction, but was not ready to face so many heroes. Von Nebula admonishes him, knowing that he has been deceived, and notes that Furno was taught well. The villainous leader then instructs Meltdown to do some more damage. Meltdown accepts, boasting the heroes will not be able to stop him. Von Nebula is satisfied and claims that by the end of the next day, Hero Factory will be destroyed by a completely unsuspected enemy: Preston Stormer.
