Powered by a nuclear micro-reactor, Heatman is capable
of wielding atomic fireballs whose temperatures can reach in excess of
12 000 degrees centigrade. These fireballs can be used for a variety
off effects, most notably to surround himself in flames and throw
himself at the enemy.
One of Heatman's favorite tactics is to use his teleportation unit to
transform into a blazing fireball and sneak up behind the enemies.
Heatman is currently wanted in 37 states and over 100 countries, the charges range from the typical
(murder, arson, wanton destruction of public and private property) to
the inane (public drunkeness, tax evasion, jaywalking) to the downright
bizarre (flashing the King of Thailand, shaving a cat in Saudi Arabia,
sticking pennies in his ears in Hawaii). Presently he is wanted dead or
alive by INTERPOL but preferably dead.
Through the Warriors various adventures Heatman
usually had an invention to either save the day or to make his
teammate's lives a living hell. Even more than one time he has tried to
kill his teammates, even though he has fought by their sides. During
his recent deportation to Canada, it was revealed he was a part of a
secret Canadian militia that planned to take over the United States.
After becoming property of Dr. Wily, Ben was one of two warriors to
keep his original personality.
|I Love the 90s
Heatman has a nostalgic streak for the 1990s a mile
long, some of his favorite games are from the Sonic
series as well as Earthworm Jim. He also loves such now-classic
cartoons like Tiny Toons, Animaniacs, Superman and even cult faves like
BotsMaster. The only thing he hates about the 1990s was the horrible
In a world
full of superowered psychos and intergalactic tyrants, Heatman pales to
none. His psychotic, misanthropic and anti-social behavior is so
extreme even Charles Manson and Ted Bundy soil themselves at the
mention of his name. Before the warriors, Heatman was an empty shell in
Dr. Wily's lab when he unexpectedly activiated and destroyed half of
Skull Castle in a rage. The exact origins of Heatman in his current
form is so mysterious and complex that it has made many physicists'
heads explode in consternation.
Dr. Wily thought he could use Heatman for his own ends but the
psychotic zippos resented having to take orders from a human, so he
escaped and helped found the current incarnation of Wilys Warriors.
However, he still said true to his nature and has often plotted to maim
and even kill his teammates (though he hasn't been successful thanks to
being outmanuvered by Starnik). His relationship with Starnik can be
attributed to the love/hate variety, often frustrated that the
speedster escapes his elaborate death traps. While Starnik often finds
Ben useful do to his devious and cunning mind.
Heatman's temper has seemed to get worse now that his rights as a
sentient have been stripped by the mechanitions of Dr. Wily. His focus
has shifted from killing his teammates to murdering Dr. Wily and
everyone who has wronged him. Rumors persist that he has killed Judge
Judy and Jack McCoy in cold blood. Who knows what could happen if the
zippo is pushed any farther.
Every Christmas Eve Ben goes down to the orphanage
and soup kitchen to read to the children and feed the homeless...
before he burns them both down. Sorry friends but this how how "kind"
|Don't Call Me Shirley
Ben's given by Wily is "Patrick", he hates that name
and will kill anyone
who refers to him that way. Instead he co-opted the name of his
cousin-by-design Fireman AKA Benjamin. It's just another point of
contention in a deadly family rivalry of the two.
