As a rookie Hero after he was created, Preston Stormer was educated by professor Aldous Witch.
Legion of Darkness
After training, Stormer was assigned to Alpha 1 Team, the first ever active Hero Factory team led by Thresher. He went on a mission to stop Voltix and Splitface, but was attacked by them both. Stormer tried to fend off the pair, but Thresher arrived and attached what he described as a magnetic mine to Voltix. Splitface fled but Thresher managed to capture Voltix, shocking the villain and Stormer by revealing the mine was a bluff. While carrying Voltix to the Asteroid J-54 prison, Thresher told Stormer his bravery would have killed him if he had not shown up. At Hero Factory, Von Ness, Dunkan Bulk, and Jimi Stringer were assigned to the Alpha 1 Team. Through many missions, Stormer and Thresher made it known that the Heroes were a force of good. Thresher had left to investigate an incident at Makuro Industries and left a mission for Stringer and Stormer, to watch a move at a far-rim mining planet. Stormer stayed there with Stringer but discovered there was no move. Mining Robots attacked the pair, but were stopped by XT4 who identified himself as the new Alpha 1 rookie. Stringer and Stormer met Bulk and Von Ness at Hero Factory and revealed XT4 to them. Preston kept XT4 in a bare room, wary of him, but the robot managed to escaped in a Drop Ship.
The four Heroes trailed XT4 to Asteroid J-54 where XT4 was engineering a prison break. Bulk and Von Ness went inside the prison while Stringer and Stormer waited in the air. They saw a rogue Drop Ship and went to it, but were pinned by a freighter. Stringer reported that it was about to explode, and Black Phantom contacted Stormer on the communication channel and identified himself as the leader of the Legion of Darkness. As the freighter was nearby, Stormer flew right at Black Phantom, but flew past him and the freighter exploded, engulfing the Drop Ship and knocking Stormer and Stringer unconscious. Thresher arrived at the asteroid and took the unconscious Heroes, Bulk and Von Ness to Hero Factory. Stormer was unconscious for days before he was revived and went to a briefing with the rest of Alpha 1. Thresher had announced that due to the disastrous failure on Asteroid J-54, Akiyama Makuro was closing Hero Factory. Von Ness, Stringer, and Bulk left to be security guards at one of Makuro's plants, but Stormer gave them transmitters before they left. Thresher planned to talk to Stormer, and went into the Assembly Tower when a power outage occurred.
Thresher sent Stormer to the main power core, where he encountered XT4 attempting to shut down the Hero Factory's power source. Stormer contacted the other Heroes for help, and fought against XT4. Stormer had the upper hand until Splitface joined the battle, forcing Stormer to fight against them both. Distracting XT4 with metal tendrils, Stormer was forced to run into a room and barricade the door from Splitface. He engineered the floor to fall when Splitface entered, and after the villain broke into the room he fell into the trap and fell through the floor. However, Black Phantom arrived and confronted Stormer. Black Phantom revealed that he wanted to let his Legion get captured, and destroy Hero Factory so he could get credit for it. Once the galaxy saw him as the destroyer of Hero Factory he would form a new legion without the competition of the other members in the legion. The other Heroes arrived, with Von Ness defeating XT4. They chased Black Phantom to the Assembly Tower where Voltix, Speeda Demon, and Toxic Reapa were about to kill Thresher. Von Ness saved Thresher and Stormer played a recording of Black Phantom's plan, causing the other villains to attack him. In the chaos, all the villains were apprehended. Thresher hid all evidence of the incident as it was almost a disastrous failure, hiding it under the highest classified level. Due to their dedication, Makuro decided to go forward with Hero Factory.
Stormer was once captured while trying to bust a smuggling gang, but was saved by undercover cop Aquax. The two proceeded to take down the entire gang, forming a friendship between Stormer and Aquax. Aquax even covered Stormer when Thresher interviewed him, saying that Stormer was undercover as well, though Thresher knew it was a lie. Once, Stormer and Aquax were left on a runaway transport ship heading for an asteroid, but they survived. Though Aquax and Stormer became friends, they eventually lost contact.
Responding to a burglary alarm, Thresher took Stormer and Von Ness to New Stellac City, but they instead found a destructive mechanoid rampaging through the city. When Silver knocked out Thresher, Von Ness suggested they call for backup; instead, Stormer instructed Von Ness to watch over Thresher and fought the monster alone. Von Ness attempted to abandon Thresher using their Drop Ship, forcing S Stormer to divert his attention and try to stop his fellow rookie, giving up after realizing the danger both Thresher and the city were facing. He jumped from the ship onto the robot's back, and managed to disable it. Although hailed as a hero by the citizens of New Stellac City, Stormer felt he could have protected Thresher and stopped Von Ness from escaping.
Eventually, Stormer managed to attain the position of Alpha leader, although in doing so he unseated Thresher, whom he had idolized. However, the former Alpha Team leader was ready to step down, having decided that he had lost his edge. As Alpha Team Leader, Stormer was assigned many rookies, but most of them were unable to measure up to his standards, though Stringer and Bulk remained team members.
On one mission, they were called to Almaak V to investigate the disappearance of Almaak IV, a neighboring planet. Stringer observed that the moon of the planet was still in orbit despite the planet's absence, and he discovered that the planet was being cloaked by Almaak V officials. Stormer then led the arrest of those responsible.
Later on a criminal planet, Stormer arrested an entire gang. He returned there later in pursuit of Core Hunter, and asked the small-time crook runner of a hotel station, Geb, about Core Hunter. Heading into Core Hunter's room, Stormer narrowly avoided a trap to drain his Hero Core. Realizing Core Hunter was nearby, Stormer got in his ship and flew off, before returning and jumping through Core Hunter's roof. After a short tussle, Stormer apprehended Core Hunter and began dragging him to the ship before Core Hunter exploded. Stormer was then contacted by the real Core Hunter, who told him that he had what he was looking for off planet and that Stormer only captured a double. Stormer was forced to return to Hero Factory with no leads to pursue Core Hunter.
Rise of the Rookies
Trials of Furno
The Alpha 1 Team, along with rookie hero William Furno, were tasked with protecting a large quantity of C-4000 explosives from theft at Merak 9. XPlode and Rotor attacked, taking the explosives, and XPlode escaped, leaving Rotor behind. Stormer told Furno to hero-cuff Rotor, who evaded capture and escaped as well. Stormer blamed himself for this as well, stating he should have captured Rotor himself. Stormer later noted Furno's errors, suggesting that he visit the training sphere. Furno, seeking to impress the team leader, trained for hours in the sphere.
During a training mission, Stormer was supervising Mark Surge, Natalie Breez, and Furno, when he received a call from Makuhero City, instructing him to take the three rookies to the Lemus 2 explosives plant to stop a reported theft being carried out by Rotor and XPlode. When Stormer complained about the lack of other heroes, he was told that they were the closest to the location. Stormer used the Drop Ship to drop a Hero Pod, letting it fall to the ground in order to serve as a distraction for Rotor and XPlode. XPlode destroyed the Hero Pod, and Stormer took the opportunity to charge the criminals. Stormer's internal wiring was damaged in the resulting battle, but was quickly repaired by Breez and Surge. XPlode escaped, but the hero and rookies had successfully captured Rotor.
After delivering Rotor to Hero Factory, Stormer's Hero Core needed recharging, leaving him unable to help Bulk, Surge, and Stringer fight Corroder. During the fight, Zib, who was overseeing the core recharges, suggested creating a Hero Cell, which Stormer vehemently refused. However, he was forced to allow them to do it, despite the risks posed to Bulk. Communicating with Stormer, Bulk advised his leader not to blame himself for the situation, as he repeatedly did with the Von Ness incident. Furno, against Stormer's recommendation, joined his fellow teammates in the battle, and they eventually drove Corroder off. Stormer oversaw Bulk's recharging after Corroder was defeated.
The Enemy Within
Stormer led Furno, Surge, and Breez to Mekron City, which was on high alert. Stormer met with with his old friend Drax, the commander of the Mekron City police force. Under the influence of nanobots, Drax attacked Stormer and the rookies, setting several Floater Enforcer Drones on them. After they defeated all of the drones, Meltdown appeared and infected Stormer with nanobots before escaping. After returning to Hero Factory, the nanobots took control of Stormer and he fled the building, defeating Bulk, Furno, and Stringer. Stormer began making his way toward a billboard advertising himself and Furno, a billboard that he had previously expressed contempt over.
While the rest of the team went to find a cure on Lunar Tratix, Furno searched for Stormer in Makuhero City. Stormer attacked Furno, and the two fought in the skies over the city. Furno then reminded Stormer of Von Ness' betrayal, and noted that his dislike of the billboard meant that his original personality had not been erased. Stormer resisted the influence of the nanobots long enough to shut himself down, and Furno took him back to Hero Factory, where he was given the antidote.
Stormer led the veteran Heroes of Alpha 1 to New Stellac City, where they were ambushed by Thunder, XPlode, Corroder, and Meltdown. Thunder hit Stormer directly with his powerful Nebula Gas Cannon, but Stormer survived the blast, protected by new armor. The rookie team arrived and joined them in fending off the villains. A black hole opened in the sky, disarming the Heroes, and Von Ness, now calling himself Von Nebula, appeared. Stormer and Furno let themselves get carried into the black hole, where they decided to use the antigravity thruster rings in their boots to negate it. Tricked by the two, Von Nebula attacked Stormer while Furno dropped the rings. Stormer sucked Von Nebula into his own staff and he and Furno exited the black hole as it exploded. Rejoining the team, the heroes returned to Hero Factory, where they were met by Daniela Capricorn. Stormer gave credit for the mission's success to the rookie team. He later ensured that Von Nebula's staff was placed under high security.
Ordeal of Fire
Stormer took the newly promoted Heroes Breez, Furno, and Surge to Tanker Station 22, where Fire Lord, Drilldozer, Jetbug, and Nitroblast were attacking. The Heroes were quickly defeated by the Fire Lord, who claimed to know Stormer, even though Stormer did not recognize him. While trying to escape with the remaining station workers, the Heroes were surrounded by the villains, and Surge broke away from the group to draw fire towards himself. The three remaining Heroes retreated with the workers.
After returning to Hero Factory, Stormer tried to convinced Akiyama Makuro to use the experimental Upgrade procedure on the three, and Makuro eventually agreed. Nathaniel Zib, Nex, and Evo watched over Stormer, Breez, and Furno as they were upgraded to 2.0 armor. Stormer and the others were sent to Virtual Training, where they tried to get used to their 2.0 bodies. After a brief session, Stormer ordered that the team be sent out.
At the station, Stormer advocated stealth, but Furno blew their cover to Nitroblast by accidentally discharging his weapon. Stormer attacked the Fire Lord, and they engaged in a duel. The Fire Lord explained that he was a former mining bot, once working on a planet visited by Stormer, and that upgrades to their system enabled them to directly absorb fuel into their hands. However, this affected their wiring, corrupting the bots, and creating an addiction for the Fire Lord. As the Fire Lord prepared to kill Stormer, Nex and Evo arrived, turning the tides of the battle, and assisting in apprehending Drilldozer and Nitroblast. The Fire Lord went to absorb every last ounce of fuel, and Stormer led the attack on him. As the Fire Lord defeated the five, Jetbug fell out of the ship he was piloting, and it rammed into the Fire Lord, ripping his absorption hand off. Stormer hero-cuffed the Fire Lord, and discovered Surge had been responsible for defeating the criminal. At Hero Factory, as they watched Surge receive a 2.0 upgrade, the Fire Lord was escorted in. Stormer told Furno and Breez that the Fire Lord will be given help for the damage his addiction to fuel had caused.
Stormer discovered his old professor, Aldous Witch trying to implant a Hero Core on his body, and he was forced to intervene to prevent Witch from doing so. Witch was exiled from the Hero Factory as a result.
Stormer called in Furno, Bulk, Stringer, and Nex to help him go to Quatros and search for Daniel Rocka, who had gone missing while searching for Aldous Witch who had given off a distress signal on the planet. He was given a 3.0 enhancement with the powers of a rhino, to help with the jungle environment. When they arrived, Stormer noted that the force field that typically protects the planet was down, theorizing that Witch was responsible. Stormer and the team found a beat-up Rocka who told him that Witch Doctor, Aldous Witch's powered-up new identity, was responsible for heavy injuries he sustained, and was planning on draining the planet of Quaza. Furno spotted Witch Doctor, and attempted to give chase to combat him, disregarding Stormer's order to stay put, but was quickly defeated. Stormer admonished Furno for his behavior when he returned, and the group set out to find Witch. While traveling through the jungle, Alpha 1 discovered a teleportation bridge capable of transporting three of them to the site of Witch Doctor's mining, where they hoped to find him. In order to settle the rivalry between Rocka and Furno, Stormer placed each of them in charge of a three-Hero unit, with one group taking the bridge, and one group going through the jungle. Rocka chose Stormer and Bulk as his team, electing to take the bridge to get there faster. However, the bridge reassembled their molecules in a smaller size, hampering their ability to complete their mission. After eluding several Fangz hounds, Rocka and Bulk were captured by Witch Doctor. However, the arriving team of Furno, Stringer, and Nex helped rescue the two, and all three were restored to their original size. Stormer took on the Witch Doctor alone, while the others tried to find a way to restore the planet's Quaza and free the enslaved wildlife. Furno eventually devised a way to increase Rocka's power using ancient armor, and the rookie Hero assisted Stormer in fighting the Witch Doctor. Though Witch Doctor gained the upper hand in the fight, Stormer was able to steal the Skull Staff, the source of his powers, and break it, defeating Witch. The team successfully apprehended Witch and restored the Quaza, saving the planet. Stormer commended Furno for putting aside his differences with Rocka, noting that they were most successful when they worked together.
After the mass breakout at the Hero Factory, Alpha 1 leader Stormer was given an armor upgrade, and sent after the speed-crazed criminal Speeda Demon. Stormer tracked the villain down to the ice planet Kollix IV, where he was given an Ultra Mach Speed Cycle in order to catch up with Speeda Demon. With the combined usage of his scout drones and driving skills, Stormer was able to corner Speeda Demon, and apprehend him. He then reunited with other members of his team, and together they returned to the Hero Factory, which was under siege from Black Phantom, one of the masterminds behind the breakout. Rocka, who was inside the Factory, disabled a protective shield around the establishment, allowing Stormer and the team to come inside.
Upon meeting up again, Alpha 1 confronted Black Phantom, who sent his Arachnix drones out to stall them while he boosted his own power using the Assembly Tower. While Stormer and the others dealt with the Arachnix swarms, Rocka took on Black Phantom and was ultimately able to defeat him. Zib revealed that the breakout had been an elaborate ruse designed for Black Phantom to acquire and transmit the plans of the Hero Factory to an unknown benefactor.
The Doom Box
Zib issued a Delta-Red warning to Stormer which was the highest possible threat level tier, as Core Hunter, who had escaped in the Breakout, was trying to reform the Doom Box, a weapon that had the capability to destroy the galaxy. Stormer recalled Alpha 1, and they listened through mission logs of their encounters with Core Hunter, in order to determine his next move.
Stormer was sent to a mine with Furno where a Doom Box fragment was believed to be held. After avoiding an automated security system, Furno and Stormer landed on the planet. Finding the mine dust-covered, Furno realized they were too late to stop Core Hunter, and he left artificial dust in his wake. Returning to the surface after another run in with sentry drones, the two saw Arctur, who gave them Speeda Demon's name before vanishing. Stormer sent Rocka to interrogate Splitface, and took Furno to Surge and Stringer's location, saving them from Core Hunter's mercenaries.
After they found Core Hunter, Surge accidentally forced the villain to form the Doom Box, but Arctur broke it and teleported Core Hunter to where he could truly activate the Doom Box. Then the mysterious being explained once the Doom Box was activated, Core Hunter's Hero Core Remover Tool could be used to absorb the Doom Box's energies and end its threat.
Reuniting with Rocka, Stormer and the rest of his team confronted Core Hunter, and Stormer told the villain that he was being used by the Hero Factory, insulting his ego. In anger, Core Hunter attacked Stormer but Arctur intercepted the blast and was killed. Core Hunter then activated the Doom Box and his tool was used by Breez to absorb the Doom Box's energy, rendering it harmless. However it made Core Hunter extremely powerful and he defeated all the Heroes, except Surge who reflected Core Hunter's power on the criminal, causing his body to fold and vanish. The Doom Box was taken back to Hero Factory, where Surge asked Stormer why Heroes go bad. Stormer was unable to answer before he was recalled to recapture more villains.
Later, Stormer heard Bulk telling Furno about the Legion of Darkness. Although it was above Furno's classification level, Stormer let it go and told Bulk and Furno to not focus on the past but the future and continuing apprehending villains after the Breakout.
Attack on Makuhero City
While attending a public event held for Alpha 1, the Heroes received an alert. Zib revealed that an army of native creatures, mutated and controlled by the brains, had formed an army, and were advancing towards the Factory. Stormer and the others were outfitted in new armor to deal with the monsters. Furno left Surge to guard Hero Factory, while the rest fought Brain-controlled creatures. Though initially overwhelmed, the Heroes regained the upper hand once Bulk figured out how to remove the Brains from the creatures. After clearing their area, the Heroes witnessed Dragon Bolt breaking into to Hero Factory, and went to find Surge. Rocka engaged the dragon in an aerial fight while the rest encountered a Brain-controlled Surge and army of blank Hero drones. The team fought the drones until Breez freed Surge and deactivated the army. Stormer then aided in cleaning up Makuhero City.
After a meeting discussing the success of recapturing the criminals, Stormer picked up chatter from the Valiant, a ship commanded by his old ally Aquax, that was hurtling toward Hero Factory. Breez and Rocka were sent into space to reach the Valiant, though Stormer was suspicious. Upon being contacted, Aquax alleged that engine trouble was responsible for the Valiant malfunctioning, but Stormer realized that something was wrong with his friend, and moved in to board the Valiant. Once on board he encountered Breez, and the two were confronted by Aquax and Brains who have taken control of the Valiant. Kirch, possessed by the swarm leader, informed Stormer that Rocka was being used as a hostage, but Breez and Stormer were saved by Xera, the ship's medical technician. Xera then informed them that he was only taking out Aquax for the good of the swarm, as he had disobeyed Kirch. Stormer and Breez rushed to the bridge where Kirch had begun using the Valiant to fire upon Drop Ships led by Evo, who was holding the ship in a tractor beam. Bulk and Furno arrived and, along with Stormer and Breez, took down an array of Brain-controlled crewbots. They forced Kirch to give up Rocka after Stormer redirected the Valiant into the sun next to Makuhero City. Kirch and his Brains departed the ship, while Aquax and Bulk devised a plan to use explosives on the ship to force it away from the sun. After Kirch was vaporized, the Valiant was shot away from the sun, and the Brain threat was ended. Returning to Hero Factory, Stormer was informed of Bulk's resignation based on the grounds that he almost destroyed the Valiant with Stormer on it; Stormer turned the resignation down, instead insisting to Bulk that he is a worthy Hero.
Furno later received a distress call from Stringer who was on Tranquis VII, prompting Stormer to send Furno and Bulk to the planet. Stormer then lost communications with the two until Stringer contacted them again, informing them of an apparent rebellion on planet the Heroes needed to quell. Zib came to ask about his team's status, and Stormer relayed the situation. Zib inspired Stormer to take control of Bulk's prototype Drop Ship on the planet and flew it to Furno's location, arriving in time to save a Brain-controlled Stringer from attempting suicide. Stormer then picked up Bulk, who used the Drop Ship to stop a Brain-controlled Dumacc from activating the superweapon Project Sunstorm. Later at Hero Factory, Stormer talked with Stringer about all the problems Hero Factory faces, including the intergalactic conspiracy, but decided the Brains were more important to stop, and showed Stringer a new Hero Core power source.
A new power source, a generator, was assigned to be tested in Hero Factory, with Stormer, Bulk, Furno and Breez overseeing its progress. After it malfunctioned, the Heroes were unable to escape, and got caught in the resulting blast. They fell unconscious and awoke in a deserted warehouse, the victim of spatial transport. Breez noticed they were at the same coordinates as before, in Makuhero City. Going to Makuhero University, they found that it was actually now called Von Nebula University. Stormer went to a Histotron to see the last thousand years of history in the city. When it activated, he saw that the city was run by the Citadel, a crime organization run by Von Nebula after he betrayed Hero Factory to Black Phantom. Stormer deduced they were in a different universe, and decided that they had to meet Von Nebula and see if a generator existed in this universe. The Alpha Team stopped crimes by Splitface, Jawblade, and others, causing XT4 to approach them saying Von Nebula wants negotiations. Stormer demanded to meet Von Nebula in the Citadel, and Von Nebula signaled his acceptance by showing then Jawblade in chains. Stormer entered, and Von Nebula was shocked to see him, and refused to hand the Citadel to Stormer. The Alpha Team was then arrested and placed in jail.
However, Alpha Team arranged a breakout of their alternate counterparts jailed by the Citadel. They then heard Voltix announce the invasion of Brains on the city, and Stormer led Alpha Team to the upper floors where the Brains were gathered. Von Nebula, allied with the Brains, captured Alpha Team, and Stormer was used by the Brains to see what was in his mind. Stormer's mind linked with the Brains and he saw they wanted metal suits to conquer more universes and only Hero Factory had that technology. Faking his mind was destroyed, Stormer was able to escape and break out Alpha Team. They found a replica of the generator after getting past Core Hunter, and prepared to use it, but Bulk found they were missing amelium, necessary for the generator to function. Von Nebula offered them the amelium, with the condition they help him destroy the Brains. Alpha Team was led to Akiyama Makuro, who had been held by the Citadel, where they convinced him they were his Heroes from a different reality, and Makuro created a beta ray to use on the Brains. The Brains attacked, and Alpha Team was saved by their other dimensional counterparts. Von Nebula tried to attack the alternate Stormer, but both Stormers reflected his staff back on the villain and he winked from existence. The two Alpha Teams exchanged words after the Brains' defeat and Stormer led his team home. There, Perjast confessed that Karter, one of Dumacc's scientists held at the Hero Factory, was behind the malfunction. Stormer caught Karter talking to his conspirator and threatened his contact before the contact killed Karter from afar. Stormer later talked to Breez about their alternate counterparts.
Preston Stormer survived Black Phantom's takeover of Hero Factory after Von Ness betrayed the organization to the Legion of Darkness and became Von Nebula. When he realized Von Nebula was trying to put his staff's power into himself, Preston arrived to disrupt the process. He and Von Nebula's bodies were brutally disfigured, and Preston escaped. He then was repaired by Makuro, and waited until he got a call from Alpha Team.
William eventually called and Preston led Alpha Team against the Brains, fighting them. Von Nebula tried to kill Preston, but both Stormers reflected his energies back, killing the tyrant. Stormer talked to his counterpart and bid him farewell as they returned to their universe.
Abilities and Traits
Stormer is a skilled Hero, has experienced hundreds of battles, and is a natural leader. He is very competitive, and specifically targeted the post of Alpha 1 leader because he believed he would excel in it. After the incident with Von Ness, Stormer is determined that no rookie ever put a mission in jeopardy again and is especially harsh on them as a result; many prior rookies under his command either gave up or were transferred out. The incident also plagued him with feelings of guilt, and he often blames himself for things that go wrong with missions. Stormer is disinterested in popularity and believes that he should not receive praise for simply doing his job.
Armor and Weapons
One of Stormer's first weapons was a small blaster weapon.
As Alpha leader, he carried the Multifunctional Ice Weapon that he upgraded over time to the point where it consisted of an ice blaster, a buzzsaw, a pickaxe, and could instantly create a blade made of ice. Preston also initially bore special ice armor.
When Stormer received his 2.0 upgrade, he was given a Multi-Tool Ice Shield and an extendable baton, and his armor was made to be more fire-resistant.
He was later given a 3.0 upgrade, giving him rhinoceros power. With his 3.0 armor, he carried a weapon with dual fold out blades, capable of firing energy blasts, based on his signature ice weapon.
He was recently equipped with a new set of extremely advanced armor for the breakout, which came with Scout Drones. With his new armor, Stormer carried a Plasma Gun and Power Sword. For his mission on Kollix VI, he was given an Ultra Mach Speed Cycle to ride.
Set 7164 Preston Stormer was released in mid-2010 as part of the original Hero line, which also contained Bulk, Stringer, Surge, Furno, and Breez. This set contained 17 pieces.
