Aquax is an old comrade of Preston Stormer, and was the captain of the Valiant.


Preston Stormer was once captured by a gang of thugs and saved by Aquax, who was an undercover cop. When Stormer's leader Thresher interviewed Aquax after the mission, Aquax covered Stormer by saying he was undercover too, and not captured.

Stormer and Aquax were also once trapped on a transport ship heading to a collision with an asteroid, but survived. The two tried to stay in touch but eventually lost contact.

Aquax was installed as captain of the Valiant, assigned to guard deep space. On the Valiant's maiden voyage, Aquax's trusted scientist Xera found Brains floating toward the ship. Against Aquax's orders, Xera retrieved one and brought it to the science lab. Furious, Aquax let Commander Kirch guard Xera until Kirch became possessed by the swarm leader of the Brains, who was on a mission to destroy the Hero Factory, and started the Valiant on a crash course to the Factory. Aquax tried to stop him but was himself possessed by a Brain. This Brain was contacted by Preston Stormer, and it tried to tell Stormer that Kirch's sending of the Valiant to Hero Factory was a mere engine issue. After Kirch left to get Hero Daniel Rocka, who had boarded, Aquax decided to let Stormer board the ship to infect him. He confronted Stormer and Natalie Breez, forcing them back until Aquax was attacked by Xera for disobeying Kirch's orders. Stormer woke Aquax up and removed the brain infection him after Kirch had died. Aquax watched as Dunkan Bulk destroyed the engines of the ship, and helped jettisoned the explosive cargo which blew up in front of the ship, sending it spiraling away from a sun that it was about to crash into. Aquax was told that Heroes would patrol deep space and help him in the future, and turned down an offer of becoming a Hero training pilot.

Abilities and Traits

As noted by Stormer, Aquax is a dedicated officer, but not always fit to be a captain. He pays close attention to details, and is dutiful about being a law enforcer. Despite this, Aquax doesn't want to be affiliated with the Hero Factory, just operate as a solo vigilante.
