Later, Rotor escaped and Von Nebula teamed him back up with XPlode to raid an explosives plant on [[Lemus 2]]. As the two were carrying the stolen goods away, Rotor spotted a [[Hero Pod]] and shot it down. However, Stormer and the three rookies sent with him, [[William Furno]], [[Natalie Breez]], and [[Mark Surge]], had landed in a Hero Factory [[Drop Ship]], using the empty Hero Pod as a decoy. The group of heroes attacked, but XPlode told Rotor to direct all of their weapons at Stormer, so they could pick off the rookie heroes with ease once Stormer was down. One of the blasts that struck Stormer dislocated some of his wiring, forcing Breez to repair him while Furno and Surge engaged XPlode and Rotor. XPlode and Rotor attempted to use the stolen explosives to fend off Furno in his bike, but Surge used his [[Lightning Shooter and Shield|Lightning Shooter]] to prevent them from reaching the explosives. As the heroes came closer to cornering the henchbots, XPlode once again betrayed Rotor and fled, while Furno hero-cuffed Rotor.

"I don't need your money. I work for the thrill."
― XPlode, Hero Factory Promotional Magazine

Template:Criminal XPlode is a successful criminal-for-hire, currently imprisoned by Hero Factory.

History

XPlode made his name in the underworld of the galaxy as a criminal-for-hire, and has become a multi-millionaire due to his success. He has a reward placed on him on every inhabited planet within 1000 light years.

Von Nebula hired XPlode to assist him in his plan to destroy Preston Stormer and Hero Factory. Von Nebula often teamed XPlode with Rotor because of XPlode's ability to keep Rotor under control. The two of them were sent to Merak 9 by Von Nebula to capture a shipment of C-4000 explosives, but were foiled by Stormer and Hero Factory's Alpha 1 Team. As Hero Factory was about to capture the minions, XPlode betrayed Rotor and escaped on his hoverbike, leaving Rotor to the heroes.

XPlode in battle

Later, Rotor escaped and Von Nebula teamed him back up with XPlode to raid an explosives plant on Lemus 2. As the two were carrying the stolen goods away, Rotor spotted a Hero Pod and shot it down. However, Stormer and the three rookies sent with him, William Furno, Natalie Breez, and Mark Surge, had landed in a Hero Factory Drop Ship, using the empty Hero Pod as a decoy. The group of heroes attacked, but XPlode told Rotor to direct all of their weapons at Stormer, so they could pick off the rookie heroes with ease once Stormer was down. One of the blasts that struck Stormer dislocated some of his wiring, forcing Breez to repair him while Furno and Surge engaged XPlode and Rotor. XPlode and Rotor attempted to use the stolen explosives to fend off Furno in his bike, but Surge used his Lightning Shooter to prevent them from reaching the explosives. As the heroes came closer to cornering the henchbots, XPlode once again betrayed Rotor and fled, while Furno hero-cuffed Rotor.

XPlode was later sent with Meltdown by Von Nebula to back up Thunder and Corroder at New Stellac City, who were fighting Natalie Breez, Dunkan Bulk, Mark Surge, and Jimi Stringer while Stormer and Furno confronted Von Nebula.

XPlode in Rise of the Rookies

However, the heroes used their new Particle Separators to avoid the lethal blow, and Stringer knocked out the unarmed XPlode.
