Hero was one of the founding members of the Protectorate.
Hero was a genial, encouraging man who secretly supplied the first Wards team with video games and movies so that they could have an enjoyable pastime between their work as heroes and after school.
He had a leadership position in the early Protectorate, even though he believed that he would not be suited to one.
Abilities and PowersEdit
Hero was considered to be the preeminent Tinker of his day. Hero's specialization was not known because he lived before Tinker specializations were considered, but Legend correctly theorized that Hero specialized in wavelength manipulation, similar to the stilling powers that Zion and Eden employed, with broad applications stemming from few restrictions on his shard.
His creations included a helmet-camera, a disintegration gun, a jetpack, sonic weapons, and small, surprisingly effective power sources and explosives.
For much of his early life he was beset with terminal health problems such as organ problems, diabetes, tremors, and chronic headaches until an unmitigated Cauldron formula cured him of his illnesses.
In 1988, Hero was introduced to Alexandria and agreed to her idea of forming a government-regulated superhero team with Cauldron's backing.
Hero was present when Behemoth emerged for the first time in 1992.
In 1993, he was sworn in alongside Alexandria, Legend, and Eidolon as one of the founding members of the Protectorate.
His loss splintered the Triumvirate, resulting in the members going their separate ways.
