Ordeal of Fire
Nathan Evo was created as a Hero in the Hero Factory, the first along with Julius Nex to be built with the new 2.0 system. They were shown off at Akiyama Makuro's annual press conference, and Evo demonstrated his skill by destroying training drones.
After the three upgraded heroes departed, Nathaniel Zib sent the two to aid the Alpha 1 Team at Tanker Station 22. Evo's meditative combat style confused the villains, and he surprised them by unleashing a massive arsenal assault on them. The team was eventually successful in capturing all the villains, and returned to the Hero Factory, where he attended Surge's commendation ceremony.
Evo's performance in Mission: Ordeal of Fire was considered unsatisfactory, despite the promise he had shown at his creation, and he was subsequently relegated to the rookie division of Alpha 1.
During the Hero Factory mass breakout, Evo went with Preston Stormer and Mark Surge to the villain containment area in an attempt prevent the villains from escaping through a black hole. Evo himself prepared to leap into the black hole in pursuit of the villains, but was stopped by Preston Stormer, who admonished him for his brash actions, and advised him to put more thought into what he does. After the villains escaped and the black hole dispersed, Evo brought the issue to Furno, who told the rookie Hero that he could always come to him for support. Evo joined the rest of the heroes in Mission Command for a briefing by Professor Nathaniel Zib. Zib informed the Heroes that they would be dispatched on individual missions to recapture the escaped criminals. Evo was upgraded with new armor and sent after Toxic Reapa, who had retreated to his homeworld of Z'chaya.
On Z'chaya, Evo discovered the cocoons of Toxic Reapa's species, which the villain was planning on raising into an army. Evo contacted Furno and relayed his initial idea to destroy the cocoons, though Furno advised against it, pointing out that it might release the larvae instead. Toxic Reapa then attacked Evo with his chemical weapons, and attempted to move towards the cocoons himself. During their fight, Toxic Reapa continually gained the upper hand over Evo, who tried contacting Furno again for advice. However, Furno was occupied with his own battle with Jawblade, and told the rookie Hero to stick with his gut decisions. Evo finally executed a battle strategy that allowed him to beat Toxic Reapa, capturing the villain.
Evo returned to the Hero Factory with Surge, Stormer, and Furno, discovering that it was under lockdown, controlled by the villain Black Phantom. When Daniel Rocka deactivated the force field around the Factory, the other Heroes joined him outside the Assembly Tower. Rocka revealed he had been operating as a Hero Recon Team agent, the reason for his presence in the Factory during their missions while Evo deactivated the lock on the Assembly Tower door.
Inside the Assembly Tower, the heroes battled Black Phantom and his Arachnix drones. When Rocka finally climbed up to where Black Phantom was in the midst of an upgrade, Stormer advised him to unplug the wires connecting Black Phantom to the tower, but Evo, acting on his instincts and his analysis of the situation, advised Rocka to instead plug him in even more. Stormer approved the plan, and Black Phantom was overloaded with power, which allowed Rocka to cuff him and take him into custody.
With Black Phantom's takeover brought to an end, Evo and his teammates joined Nathaniel Zib in Mission Control, where it was revealed that during the lockdown a file of the Hero Factory's plans had been sent to an unknown destination, and that the Hero Factory was still at risk. In the mission against Core Hunter, Evo and Nex ran the mission from Mission Control.
Attack on Makuhero City
Evo played catch with civilians at a public event at an Alpha 1 statue, but was recalled to Hero Factory when the Brains began their invasion of Makuhero City. Evo was equipped with new armor and sent in the service canals to stop Aquagon and other members of his species. Evo fought them off until Dunkan Bulk radioed the Heroes with a way to remove the Brains from the creatures. Evo removed the Brains from his enemies and joined the team at Hero Factory to find Surge. He fought Surge's robotic drones before Surge was saved from the Brain controlling him by Breez. The Heroes and Evo then went to repair the city.
Evo responded to Bulk's call for Drop Ships to take out the Valiant, a ship overtaken by Brains heading straight to Hero Factory. Although this could result in Rocka, Breez, and Stormer's death, Evo knew that it had to be done. As they approached the Valiant, Bulk's orders changed to use the Drop Ship's tractor beams to hold the Valiant in place. The ship fired at the Drop Ships, but the beam held until the ship was sent on a course directly toward the sun. Evo later managed to evade collision with the sun and returned to Hero Factory.
After Stringer sent a distress call from Tranquis VII, Evo helped Stormer run Bulk and Furno's rescue mission from Hero Factory, getting communications from Furno. After the Heroes managed to defeat the Brains and stop them from using Project Sunstorm, Evo went to the planet to aid in capturing Brains. He later security checked Bulk before he could join the other Alpha Team members.
Invasion From Below
Evo was one of the heroes sent to investigate the tunnel which workers disappeared in. He went inside with his Turret Machine when he was attacked and was forced to eject from his Machine. He later helped fight off the first wave of Jumpers and used his XL Machine to fight the Splitter Beast. He later went underground with the other heroes in order to free his comerades. He disassembled his XL Machine to make his Spider Machine. He later fought the Queen Beast head on and almost was killed by her, but was saved by Breez.
Abilities and Traits
Initially calm and quiet, Evo debuted as an expert at weaponry. During his initial missions, he would meditate before a fight to stimulate himself and sharpen his reflexes. As a rookie on the Alpha 1 team, he has faced pressures to live up to team leader Stormer, but with the assistance of his other teammates, he has been overcoming self-doubt and insecurity in order to be a worthwhile ally and Hero.
Evo has lately developed an enthusiasm for all types technology, embracing the Battle Machines used in Antropolis City.
Armor and Weapons
Evo wielded a Multi-Tool Ice Shield as his primary weapon in his 2.0 form.
Evo was upgraded with new armor for his mission to capture the villain Toxic Reapa; to help combat the toxic environment, he was using anti-venom equipment, used in his weapon and on his anti-toxic boots. In his new armor he had a Tank Arm, supplementing his Plasma Gun.
After the Makuhero City assault from the Brains, Evo was upgraded with spiked armor, an underwater breathing visor, and Hero Core locking clamps to defeat the underwater threat. He was also given a Vortex Staff, capable of reaching white-hot temperatures, which attached to a special back-mounted sheath. He also carried a small dagger with him.
For the investigation of Antropolis City, Evo was upgraded with a new compact armor design compatible with the new Battle Machines; Evo initially used the Evo Walker until it was destroyed, switching to the Evo XL Machine after designing and building it, and finally switching to a new mech after traveling underground. Evo also had a personal buzz-saw at his disposal while piloting the Evo Walker.
Set 2067 Evo 2.0 was released in early 2011 as one of six "Heroes 2.0", which also contained Nex 2.0, Furno 2.0, Breez 2.0, Surge 2.0, and Stormer 2.0. Evo 2.0 contains 31 pieces and can be combined with Furno 2.0 to create a new model using instructions from HeroFactory.com. Evo is also one of the first sets to use the online HeroPad system, which uses a code from the bottom of a set's canister lid in order to unlock special prizes.
Set 6200 Evo was released in the first half of 2012. Made of 36 pieces, the set contains a redesigned Hero Core, upon which a game code is printed for the online game Breakout. It also includes a launcher with spherical ammunition which fires when the launcher is squeezed. Parts from this set can be combined with parts from 6201 Toxic Reapa to build a combi model using instructions from HeroFactory.com.
Set 44012 Evo was released as part of the summer 2013 "Brain Attack" wave. This 51-piece set included a Tornado Staff, a back-mounted scabbard, and a new underwater breathing visor element hinged so that it could open or close over Evo's new helmet. Like the other Hero sets in this wave, the set also included locking clamps to secure the Hero Core, which was the same style as the previous series and included a code for 400 game points in the new game Brain Attack. It can be combined with 44013 Aquagon to create a non-canon combiner model.
Evo was released in 3 sets in 2014, 44015 Evo Walker, which had 51 pieces, 44022 Evo XL Machine, which had 193 pieces, and was included with Furno and Stormer in 44029 Queen Beast vs. Furno, Evo, and Stormer. He came with his Spider Machine in this set.
- Evo's promotional nickname is "The Steamroller".
- Tom Kenny provided Evo's voice in Ordeal of Fire. Then, Jason London provided Evo's voice in Breakout: Part One, Breakout: Part Two, and Brain Attack. In Invasion from Below, he was voiced by Justin Murphy.
- Due to the Evo prototype having Nex;s name and vice versa, both characters were mixed up in different media and appeared with reversed character traits, such as in their HeroFactory.com biographies.
