Class Building

Hero Factory is the largest building in Makuhero City. It is the birthplace of all heroes. The building stands 589 meters (1,932.4 feet) high, and has a cold fusion power source. It is considered by the public and the inhabitants to be a marvelous piece of architecture, both aesthetically and technically.


Hero Factory was built to be the home of the Hero Factory corporation, and it dominated the center of Makuhero City. It soon became the control base for the entire city. Preston Stormer once breached the tower's defenses when he was infected by Meltdown. Hero Pods are launched from the tower almost daily, to send heroes to missions around the galaxy.


There are various sections of the factory building specialized for various tasks.

Production Line


The Furnace is the place where the raw material for creating Heroes is processed. The metals and alloys are molded and shaped into the bodies and armor pieces of the Heroes.

Assembly Tower

Much of Hero Factory is dominated by the Assembly Tower. Automated cranes, which take the parts produced by the Furnace, produce all new Heroes here, assembling and . It can be calibrated for the recent Upgrade process, taking conventional 1.0 heroes and upgrading them to the 2.0 forms, or assemble new 2.0 Heroes directly.

The first 1.0 to 2.0 upgrades were Stormer, Natalie Breez, and William Furno. Mark Surge followed soon after.

Hero Core Room

The Hero Core Room is located at the very tip of the Assembly Tower. Here, new Heroes are fitted with their Hero Cores, the component that brings a Hero to life.

Refitting Facility

The Refitting Facility is where Heroes can go to be outfitted with new armor or weapons specific to their mission; the refitting process takes three minutes or less.

Supercharging Facility

At the top of the tower is the Supercharging Facility, where rookie Heroes go through a Hero Core charging process. The rookies go through a series of charges, and become fully-fledged Hero Factory Heroes upon their final charge.

Support Areas

Call Center

The Call Center is operated by workers that intercept Hero alerts, respond to distress calls, and send hero teams. Lucy is a call center operator.

Mission Management Stations

Management Stations

These stations manage every Hero team other than the Recon Team. Each station has a screen to get MissionCam footage showing their team's current mission. The center of the station has a circular touch-screen island with controls for Makuhero City's defenses, and other operations relating to the station's team. There is a map of the galaxy that can scrolled and scanned. Every station has a mission manager and helper. One example of a duo is Nathaniel Zib and Quadal.


There are a number of highly guarded incarceration facilities to hold criminals that have been captured. Criminals that are captured on missions are sent here. They either stay in the Hero Factory lock-up, or are sent out to a prison elsewhere in the galaxy. There are other highly guarded store rooms, such as a room that holds the Black Hole Orb Staff.

Training Facilities

A training sphere

Training Sphere

The Training Sphere is a virtual reality simulator allowing heroes to train in specialized missions. William Furno is a heavy user of the training sphere, and is able to use his Furno Bike in the sphere. The sphere can also re-simulate any past mission, allowing heroes that failed to practice to ensure such an event would not occur again.

Virtual Training

The virtual training simulator is for heroes to train, while being observed by anyone who wishes to be present, or watch from a video screen. It was last used by Stormer, Breez, and Furno to test their 2.0 capabilities.

Mission Central

When a Hero goes missing, the alert it sent to Mission Central.

DJ Booth

Directly underneath the training spheres is the DJ Booth, where Mak Megahertz broadcasts his daily talk show, Hero Factory FM about the comings and goings at Hero Factory.

Medical Wing

The Factory possesses a med wing to help ailing and injured Heroes.

Quaza Chamber

The Quaza Chamber is a room where Heroes who are low on energy in their Hero Core can go to charge. Only one Hero may charge at a time.
