Professor Nathaniel Zib is a Senior Mission Manager at Hero Factory.

History

Seven years prior to Mission: Von Nebula, Professor Zib was promoted to a Senior Mission Manager.

Trials of Furno

During the Von Nebula missions, Zib oversaw the Alpha 1 Team's efforts with the help of his assistant, Quadal. During XPlode and Rotor's attack on a C-4000 explosives shipment, he managed Alpha 1 Team as well as the rookie Hero named William Furno. When the attack was over and both XPlode and Rotor escaped, Akiyama Makuro talked with Zib about the intensity of Preston Stormer's words towards Furno, and Furno's abilities to be a team leader while still a rookie.

Zib also managed the mission to the Lemus 2 explosives plant that sent Stormer, Furno, Mark Surge, and Natalie Breez to defend the plant and its explosives from XPlode and Rotor.

Core Crisis

Later on, Hero Factory received a distress call from Penitentiary 1331, a prison planetoid still under construction. Due to its status as an incomplete prison, Zib sent rookies Breez and Surge with two members of the Alpha 1 Team, Jimi Stringer and Dunkan Bulk, as Stormer was unable to go help lead his team in the field due to a low hero core. Zib managed the mission with the help of Stormer, helping the team decide whether or not to form a Hero Cell to protect the power-deprived Bulk and the other heroes from Corroder's attack until backup could arrive. With no appropriate teams to back up the heroes, Zib and the newly recharged Furno convinced Stormer to allow the rookie Hero to go to Penitentiary 1331, after being refitted with acid-resistant armor at the refitting tower. Furno eventually beat Corroder, and helped get the other Heroes back to the factory safely, although they were unable to capture Corroder.

The Enemy Within

Zib helped develop a code that would eradicate Meltdown's virus that was shot into Stormer, the virus having turned Stormer into an unwilling minion of Von Nebula. Missing a key ingredient from Lunar Tratix, Zib sent Breez, who would be capable of saving the team in case they encountered a Tratix Reptoid, along with Bulk, Stringer, and Surge to retrieve the mineral. They returned successful, and Furno managed to bring Stormer back alive to be cured.

Von Nebula

Later, Zib watched Thunder knock out the live feed of the senior Alpha 1 Team member's latest mission. Zib gave the Rookie 1 team, who were going to rescue Alpha 1 particle separators for the mission, which proved instrumental in their survival. Zib explained that under normal circumstances, they would be assigned a team leader, but the scenario necessitated electing their own. Surge and Breez swiftly elected Furno to the position, and the mission was ultimately successful.

Ordeal of Fire

Zib met Breez, Stormer, and Furno after they had to flee the Fire Lord and leave Surge behind to rescue all the civilians. Mr. Makuro refused to upgrade the three until Zib convinced him that the three would be soundly defeated if not put in Upgrade. Zib and Quadal oversaw the upgrading of the trio, and in virtual training tried to help them master the new 2.0 bodies. Shortly after Alpha 1 launched, Zib sent Julius Nex and Nathan Evo to aid the Alpha 1 Team. Zib later upgraded Surge as well.

Savage Planet

While speaking with Rocka, who was returning from a mission, Zib received an alert from exiled professor Aldous Witch on Quatros. Rocka disobeyed Zib, and went to rescue the professor, though contact was soon lost between them. To help the Alpha 1 Team, who was going to rescue their teammate, Zib took inspiration from the area and upgraded the Heroes to 3.0 animal forms. Zib kept in contact with the Alpha 1 Team as they attempted to track down Witch, who was revealed to be destroying the planet by draining the Quaza from its core. Zib provided them with information on the civilization that had previously existed on Quatros, and the team eventually apprehended the Witch Doctor.

Abilities and Traits

Zib is a skilled strategist and problem solver, which are traits necessary for his position as the chief mission manager. He holds a no-nonsense attitude, but has a few quirks that often come out when talking to Mak Megahertz on Hero Factory FM, where he has a regular spot in Mak's radio show.
