Hero Core Remover
|Number of Episode Appearances:|
Core Hunter was a Rookie Hero recruited in Hero Factory. At some unknown time, he decided to leave the Hero Factory because of a defect in him. He felt the Hero Factory organization had nothing for him there & also felt that no one cared about him & his future.
From rogue hero to villainEdit
After defecting from Hero Factory, Core Hunter stayed neutral & off the radar until at some point (after being obsessed with Hero Cores), he dedicated his skills to villainy & became a master theft. Core Hunter later salvaged Hero Factory's weapons & converted the weapons to be used against the Heroes. At some time, he was somehow captured & imprisoned in the Villain Storage.
When Voltix unleashed a Von Nebula entity & broke the Black Hole Orb Staff, he created a black hole that allowed the villains to break their security locks & escape. Core Hunter decided to remain in Makuhero City & destroy any Heroes he could find. Dunkan Bulk was assigned to stop him.
The Doom BoxEdit
Core Hunter traveled to Tansari IV, where he attacked Hero Jimi Stringer, who had just arrested Voltix. Bulk arrived soon after, & chased Core Hunter off of the planet. Core Hunter then began his operation to retrieve the fragments of the Doom Box. First he he went to Geb, only to find that Bulk & Natalie Breez were already there with the fragment. Core Hunter used anti-gravity devices to retrieve the Doom Box fragment & send Geb into orbit. Bulk fired his Missile Launcher at Core Hunter, but Arctur saved Core Hunter & told him that Heroes were at the fragment located at the mine. Core Hunter rushed off to the mine & retrieved the fragment, putting down a thick layer of artificial dust to cover his tracks.
Finally, Core Hunter went to the ship containing the third fragment, which was now junked in a ship graveyard. He hired a band of mercenaries to defend against Alpha 1 Team, who he knew was coming for him. In the cargo bay, Core Hunter assembled two of the fragments but not the third as he had no intention of actually using the Doom Box. In a standoff with Alpha 1, Core Hunter was attacked by Mark Surge who utilized his Electricity Shooter, giving Core Hunter spasms that caused him to accidentally reform the Doom Box. Arctur appeared & offered to take Core Hunter to where the Doom Box was forged, the only place it could be used. Core Hunter accepted, & was teleported there, but soon Arctur & all of Alpha 1 confronted him. After Arctur was killed by Core Hunter, the Heroes goaded the villain into activating the Doom Box, while Breez used the Hero Core Remover Tool to absorb the Doom Box's energies & render it harmless, inadvertently supercharging the weapon. Core Hunter used his tool to incapacitate the Heroes, except for Surge, who he offered a position in his new empire. Surge instead fired his shooter at Core Hunter, causing the villain's powers to fold in on himself, until his body slowly winked out of existence.
Abilities & TraitsEdit
Core Hunter is very intelligent & a perfectionist given the fact he can rip a hero core out of a hero without damaging it. However, it made him more obsessed for hero cores which led him to being a villain (as he cannot resist the lust for hero cores to add to his collection).
Core Hunter carries a Plasma Shooter in his right hand which was stolen from a deceased hero. He wields a Hero Core Remover Tool in his left hand which can remove any hero core easily without wrecking it. He also wears a multi-vision mask, which uses infrared x-ray & ESP in the goggles to scan his enemies' mental & physical strength & weakness as well as working in day & night.
