Corroder is a criminal that was formerly in the service of Von Nebula.

Biography

In his career, Corroder destroyed public monuments, stole numerous planetary treasures, and was sought after for the sabotaging the Cygnia Thermo-Dam, something Corroder considered a high point in his career. He was eventually recruited by Von Nebula for his criminal enterprise.

Corroder shooting acid

Corroder was sent to destroy the construction site for a new prison named Penitentiary 1331 on Tantalus 5. The workers sent a distress call to Hero Factory, and the factory sent two members of the Alpha 1 Team, Dunkan Bulk and Jimi Stringer, along with a pair of rookies, Natalie Breez and Mark Surge, to rescue the workers and defend the construction site. Stringer, Bulk, and Surge attacked Corroder, but when Surge walked underneath some girders hanging from a crane, Corroder fired his Acid Blasters at the crane's cable, severing it. Bulk shoved Surge out of the way, and was pinned underneath the girders. Stringer engaged Corroder, trying to keep the robot away from his fallen comrade. However, Corroder pressed the Heroes, forcing them to construct a risky Hero Cell to stave off the villain.

Rookie Hero William Furno arrived to help his comrades, outfitted with acid resistant armor to counter Corroder's power. He launched a Hero Pod at him, then discreetly ejected from it, taking Corroder by surprise. Furno gained the upper hand over Corroder, and when a Hero Craft piloted by Breez arrived, Furno convinced Corroder that it was a fresh team of Heroes. Corroder departed, not willing to face another Hero team. When he relayed his mission to Von Nebula, the mastermind admonished him for being fooled by Furno, as the Hero Craft was actually empty.

Later, Corroder, Thunder, Meltdown, and XPlode traveled to New Stellac City, to draw the Alpha 1 Team into conflict while Stormer and Furno confronted Von Nebula inside the villain's black hole. The villains pursued the Heroes, but Alpha 1 stayed out of range, and eventually launched a counterattack. Corroder and the other criminals were defeated and imprisoned by the Hero Factory.

After the villain Voltix triggered Von Nebula's Black Hole Orb Staff, every villain imprisoned was able to escape, including Corroder.

Abilities and Traits

Corroder aspires to be a leader, and was not content to serve in a subordinate position under Von Nebula. However, despite his flippant attitude, he also knows when to keep quiet and when to bide his time until he is ready to make a move.

He is capable of spitting an acid from his mouth.

Tools

Corroder wields two Acid Blasters and a Meteor Blaster. He also uses his horn in close combat.
