Crucible is the post-timeskip team leader[1] of the Brockton Bay Wards.

PersonalityEdit

Crucible is relatively inexperienced as a team leader, so he is often willing to bow to authority figures like Chevalier and see his enemies as more moral than they are.[1] He expresses frustration at not knowing the details of classified events, such as the battle against Echidna[2], but he still demonstrates endurance and selflessness.

AppearanceEdit

Crucible's costume leaves his jaw exposed.[1]

Abilities and PowersEdit

Crucible is able to create a pale blue forcefield bubble that can flar an intense orange white filling it with intense heat,[3] incinerating everything inside.[4] It is specificallly restricted to a bouble shape as he can create a dome and still be able to burn things within.[5] He attempts to hide the latter aspect of his power to maintain his reputation as a hero.[4]

HistoryEdit

BackgroundEdit

Presumably a natural trigger.

Post-EchidnaEdit

Crucible was requisitioned by the Brockton Bay Protectorate to mitigate its losses after the battle against Echidna.[6]

He was present when Skitter surrendered herself to the PRT ENE, when she attacked Tagg and Alexandria,[7] and when she announced her decision to join the heroes and rename herself Weaver.[8]

Post-TimeskipEdit

By the time that Weaver asked him to participate in the effort against the Slaughterhouse 9000 he had risin to the position Team leader of the Brockton Bay Wards, he deferred leadership back to Clockblocker and deployed during a hostage situation alongside his teammates and the Undersiders.[1]

Crucible personally faced three Mannequins, three Murder Rats, three Breeds, a Nyx and a Tyrant during Jack Slash's second challenge for Theo, and sustained a jaw wound from Murder Rat that left him out of commission for a time.[9] It was the first time he killed there having burned several of the murderous clones to death.[4] He also battled three each of Skinslip, Hatchet Face, Miasma, and Murder Rat at Redfield.[10]

He was present at the start of Gold Morning but it is unknown what became of him.

  3. Another got caught in the threads, but blades sprung out all over his body, the individual components rotating, and the threads were cut. He dropped down.

    Crucible caught him. A forcefield bubble surrounded the figure, pale blue, then flared a brilliant orange-white.

    Mannequin would be fireproof, though. Even an extreme heat like Crucible could create wouldn’t have an effect. Still, it meant one was contained.

    The other two were still fighting off the bugs when Crucible burned them as well.

    Silence reigned. The crowd, I think, was a little too horrified to cheer for us.

    “First kill?” Imp asked, quiet.

    “Yeah”

    “How the fuck did you get to be a hero with a power like that?”

    “Kept it a secret from you guys, kept it a secret from the public. You can do a lot with a solid forcefield bubble.” - Excerpt from Sting 26.3
  5. “Um, not about to turn away help,” Imp said. She was benefiting as Crucible created his superheated forcefield dome to burn away the Breed-parasites too dumb to walk around.

    Clockblocker paused the most dangerous ones, closest to mouths, anuses and private parts, to ears and nostrils. We backed away as he freed us of the worst of them, and Crucible barred the path with his superheated forcefield. - Excerpt from Sting 26.3
