Robert Hunter


A retired electrical engineer who inadvertantly contacted a rogue group of aliens through his ham radio hobby. They altered his genetic makeup, allowing him to explode his body’s molecules and reassemble them at will.

Imprisoned in The Cube, Nitro escaped and was used by The Leader in a plot to gamma-charge the entire planet. Incapacitated by Doctor Strange, he was shunted outside of the Cube, where he wisely decided to make an escape rather than risk being recaptured.

Nitro was then recruited by The Crimson Cowl to bolster the ranks of The Masters of Evil.
