William Furno, often referred to by his surname, Furno, is a hero in the Hero Factory.

Biography

William Furno's creation was of interest to the designers, as it was slightly different from a standard Hero. After his construction, he was sent to get his scheduled Hero Core charge. However, the charge was extremely high, and was more reminiscent of a final charge than an initial one. Furno was made leader of the rookie team cell consisting of Natalie Breez and Mark Surge, and they were placed under the direct leadership of the Alpha Team.

Rise of the Rookies

Trials of Furno

Furno and his team traveled with the Alpha Team when they went to stop Xplode and Rotor from stealing C-4000 explosives. Preston Stormer ordered him to remain in the ship, angering Furno, but he eventually joined the battle, and attempted to hero-cuff Rotor. Furno failed, and Stormer reprimanded him for letting Rotor escape. At the Hero Factory, Furno trained in a simulation of that mission to impress Stormer despite warnings by Mark Surge and Natalie Breez to not push himself too far.

Later, Furno was with Stormer and the other rookies when they were called into an explosives plant, where Xplode and Rotor were. After Xplode took out Stormer, Furno summoned his Furno Bike, and raced on his bike at the two. Xplode fled, leaving Furno to hero-cuff Rotor and transport him to Hero Factory.

Core Crisis

When Surge, Breez, Dunkan Bulk and Jimi Stringer were attacked by the villain Corroder during a prison transport, Furno was the only back-up hero. Bulk sustained serious injuries, forcing the team to construct a lengthy Hero Cell. Furno flew in with acid-resistant armor and defeated Corroder while Breez arrived in a huge ship to scare Corroder off. While Bulk recharged his core, Stormer thanked Furno for his efforts.

The Enemy Within

Stormer took Furno and the rookies with him to investigate an alarm at Mekron city, meeting with his ally, the Police Chief Drax. However, Drax went rogue, and attacked Stormer and his allies. After they subdued Drax, Meltdown arrived, and infected Stormer with nanobots. At Hero Factory, the nanobots took over, and Stormer ran from the building despite Furno, Stringer, and Bulk's efforts to catch him. Furno realized that Stormer would attempt to take down a billboard featuring the two of them, that Stormer had previously mentioned his distaste for. Arriving at the billboard, Furno dueled with Stormer, and made Stormer realize that his irrational hatred of the billboard signified that his personality was still intact. Stormer suppressed the influence of the nanobots long enough to be transported back to the Hero Factory, where Bulk, Breez, Surge, and Stringer returned with a cure from Tallos 5.

Von Nebula

The rookies learned that Alpha Team was in trouble at New Stellac City, and the rookies flew there, watching footage of Thresher's ill-fated mission with Stormer and Von Ness, who fled out of cowardice and became the notorious villain Von Nebula. Once there, the heroes helped Alpha Team against Thunder and the rest of Von Nebula's henchmen. When a black hole opened, Furno followed Stormer into it, intending to help Stormer take down Von Nebula. After Von Nebula learned of charges they had, the heroes convinced him that Stormer had them, while Furno covertly dropped them in the black hole. Stormer sucked Von Nebula in the Black Hole Orb Staff, and they escaped the black hole. Back at Hero Factory, the staff was placed in a high-security vault.

Ordeal of Fire

Stormer again took the rookies to where the Fire Lord was attacking a refueling station. Furno tried to attack the Fire Lord, but was soundly defeated. When the Fire Lord and his gang proved too powerful, Stormer briefly delayed the Fire Lord before retreating.

The four Heroes, assisted by upgraded Heroes Nathan Evo and Julius Nex, participated in their own upgrade to 2.0 forms, giving them the power to destroy the Fire Lord's forces.

Abilities and Traits

Furno is overconfident, and believes he has the skill to succeed at any task. This amount of self-confidence forces him to push his own limits in order to succeed at harder tasks.

Weapons

William Furno initially carried a Dual Fire Shooter. After being upgraded, he now carries a Multi-Tool Ice Shield. He also possesses a Bike named after himself, that he uses for combat and travel.

Furno 2.0 as a set

William Furno was first released in mid-2010 as part of the original Hero line, which also contained Stormer, Stringer, Bulk, Breez, and Surge. This set contained 19 pieces. It also could be combined with the Stormer and Breez sets to create Lucas Valor using instructions from an issue of the LEGO Brickmaster Magazine. Furno was released again in 2010 as part of the Furno Bike set. Furno used 15 of the set's 165 pieces, and could be connected to the bike via pegs on his hands and feet. Furno was released yet again in early 2011 as part of the Hero 2.0 line, along with Evo 2.0, Nex 2.0, Stormer 2.0, Breez 2.0, and Surge 2.0. This set contained 30 pieces. Furno 2.0 could be combined with Evo 2.0 in order to create a new model from instructions in both of their booklets. It was also one of the first sets to be a part of the Hero Pad system, which allowed users to enter codes from the bottom of set canister lids in order to unlock prizes in an online game.

Trivia

  • In several early press releases and promotional advertisements, Furno's last name was identified as "Blaze".
