"Stringer has two passions: fighting for justice and music. His smooth, laid-back approach to adventures, cool head, and mastery of every aspect of sound make him a valuable member of Stormer's team."

Jimi Stringer is a Hero from Hero Factory, and a member of the Alpha 1 Team.

Biography

Stringer was created at Hero Factory and became a member of Alpha 1 with Preston Stormer and Dunkan Bulk.

At one time the Alpha 1 Team had a mission to investigate the disappearance of Almaak IV after being told of it by officials of Almaak V. Stringer noticed that the moon of Almaak IV had a normal orbit around nothing, and used this information to reveal that the planet was being cloaked by members of Almaak V's government. Almaak IV was uncloaked, and those behind the scheme were arrested by the Hero Factory.

Rise of the Rookies

Trials of Furno

Stringer, along with Stormer, Bulk, and one of Alpha 1's new rookies, William Furno, was sent to guard a C-4000 shipment to Merak 9. However, the criminals XPlode and Rotor arrived and the team engaged them. Although they succeeded in protecting the explosives, both criminals escaped. Stringer later went with Bulk and rookies Mark Surge and Natalie Breez to Lemus 2 to repair the damage caused by a following battle with XPlode and Rotor, which had ended in Rotor's capture.

Core Crisis

Stringer, Bulk, Surge, and Breez were called to Tantalus 5 to battle Corroder. While Breez evacuated the civilians, Stringer and the others held off the villain. During the battle, Corroder caused a pile of girders to fall, pinning Bulk beneath them. Stringer distracted Corroder while Surge attempted to free Bulk. Knowing that reinforcements would not arrive in time, Stringer suggested creating a Hero Cell, which Stormer, watching from Hero Factory, initially refused. However, they were forced to create one in order to survive. They were saved by Furno, and Corroder fled the scene.

The Enemy Within

Returning to the Hero Factory after they encountered Meltdown, the rookies brought Stormer in infected with nanobots. The nanobots soon took over, and Stringer, Bulk, and Furno failed to stop Stormer from escaping the building. Stringer and the other Alpha 1 members went to find the cure for the nanobots on Lunar Tratix while Furno pursued Stormer. After encountering a Tratix Reptoid, the Heroes were able to find the cure, and returned to Makuhero City to administer it to Stormer.

Von Nebula

Stringer and Bulk using particle separators

Stringer was called in with Bulk and Stormer to New Stellac City, where they encountered Thunder and Corroder. The rookie team arrived to aid them, at which point XPlode and Meltdown joined the fight. A black hole appeared over the city and stripped the Heroes of their weapons. Von Nebula revealed himself from within the vortex, and Stormer and Furno followed the criminal mastermind into it, leaving the other Heroes to deal with his underlings. Stringer and the other Heroes hid until the criminals ran out of ammunition and then retaliated. XPlode fired his Explosive Spikes as a last resort, but the Heroes survived using their new Particle Separators. Stringer and Bulk then wrapped the henchbots in metal bonds and, upon Stormer and Furno's return from the black hole, escorted them to Hero Factory.

Stringer was eventually upgraded to the 2.0 standard after it was perfected.

Savage Planet

In order to travel to the planet Quatros and assist their missing ally Rocka, Stringer received an enhancement based on the attributes of animals. When the team approached the planet, they noticed that it had changed in appearance, and Stringer theorized to Stormer that someone must be illegally mining Quaza, which the planet reacts to. Upon landing, Stormer found an injured Rocka, who told him that Witch Doctor was responsible. Furno went after Witch Doctor, and Stringer and Julius Nex went to catch up to him. The three then encountered a group of jungle animals under the control of the Witch Doctor, though they were soon called away. Alpha 1 eventually came across a teleportation bridge capable of taking them to the Witch Doctor's mining site, though the bridge could only take three at a time. Stormer put Furno and Rocka each in charge of a three Hero unit, and Stringer went with Furno and Nex on the longer way around. Along the way, they encountered a Scorpio and a Waspix. They managed to free the Waspix from Witch Doctor's influence, but the Scorpio chased them all the way to the mining site. There, they rescued the other unit, which had been shrunk by the effects of the teleportation bridge, and restored them to size. Stringer freed the Raw-Jaw, Witch Doctor's Quaza miner, from his corrupted Quaza spike, and then began working with Bulk to liberate the Fangz hounds. Witch Doctor was eventually defeated and apprehended, and the Quaza was restored to the planet.

Breakout

While Furno and Rocka were placing Voltix into a containment cell, the villain incited a mass breakout of the Hero Factory. Stringer, along with other members of Alpha 1, attempted to quell the escape, but were all overpowered. As part of the recapture effort, Stringer was given an armor upgrade, and assigned to recapture Voltix.

Stringer tracked the villain to the Tansari power collection array, which Voltix was using to create a superweapon for his own personal use. The upgraded Hero Cuffs Stringer held were disabled by Voltix, preventing an automatic capture, and lost in the thick mist that covered the area. Voltix eventually gained the upper hand in their fight, but Stringer inadvertently found his Hero Cuffs, and was able to use them in a manual capture. Shortly after, Stringer was assaulted by another escaped convict, Core Hunter, although Core Hunter was soon chased off by Stringer's Alpha 1 teammate, Bulk.

Returning to the Hero Factory, Stringer discovered that the climactic battle with Black Phantom had already occurred, and that the Heroes were ultimately victorious.

Abilities and Traits

Jimi Stringer enjoys fighting for the Hero Factory cause, but is very laid-back, and cool under pressure during missions. This attitude occasionally annoys his teammates, but helps him in dealing with the stressful situations they get into. Unlike the other members of the Alpha 1 Team, Stringer likes working with rookie Heroes.

Stringer has a passion for music, and applies his casual, philosophical attitude about fighting toward lyric composition as well.

Stringer was upgraded to a 2.0 form with the mass change initiated by the Hero Factory; he was also briefly upgraded to 3.0, along with other members of Alpha 1, with animal armor based on attributes of the black bear.

After the mass breakout at Hero Factory, Stringer was given new armor specially designed to counter the criminal Voltix, including speakers built into his armor designed to disrupt the path and intensity of the villain's electric weapons.

Tools

Stringer carried a Sonic Boom Weapon, which helped him use his love for music as a fighting style.

When he received his upgrade to 3.0 form, Stringer carried a triple-bladed bear claw, with a built-in plasma blaster.

After the breakout, Stringer was given a Sonic Blaster.
