The team once had a mission to investigate the disappearance of Almaak IV after being told of it by Almaak V. Stringer noticed that the moon of Almaak IV had a normal orbit around nothing; he used this information to reveal that the planet was being cloaked by Almaak V. 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, went to stop XPlode and Rotor from stealing a C-4000 shipment, and although they succeeded, both criminals escaped. Bulk and Stringer later went to Lemus 2 to repair the damage caused by a recent battle with XPlode and Rotor, which ended in Rotor's capture.
Stringer, Bulk, and Mark Surge went to Tantalus 5 to battle Corroder. Corroder caused a pile of girders to fall, pinning Bulk. Stringer fought Corroder while Surge attempted to free Bulk. Knowing that reinforcements wouldn't arrive in time, Stringer suggested creating a Hero Cell, which Stormer initially refused. However, the three were forced to create one in order to survive. Three were saved by Furno and Natalie Breez, and Corroder fled the scene.
The Enemy Within
Returning to the Hero Factory from a mission, the rookies brought Stormer in infected with nanobots, after they encountered Meltdown. The nanobots took over, and Stringer, Bulk, and Furno failed to stop Stormer from escaping the building. Stringer and the other Heroes 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 a cure, and returned to Makuhero City to administer it to Stormer.
Stringer was called in with Bulk and Stormer to New Stellac City, where they encountered Thunder, and soon Corroder, Meltdown, and XPlode as well. Held back by the onslaught, the team waited until the rookies arrived. Von Nebula spoke to them from a black hole, and Stormer and Furno were sucked into it, leaving the other Heroes to deal with his underlings. The criminals eventually ran out of ammunition and were defeated by the Heroes. Stringer wrapped them in metal bonds, and they were sent to Hero Factory.
Soon after receiving an upgrade to a 2.0 form, Stringer was able to harness bear power with a 3.0 upgrade. Accompanying Bulk, Stormer, Furno, and Julius Nex to Quatros to save Rocka, they found that they had to defeat a crazed and mutated Aldous Witch, now calling himself Witch Doctor.
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, philisophical attitude about fighting toward lyric writing as well.
Stringer carries a Sonic Boom Weapon, which helps him use his love for music as a fighting style.
