Ok, the thing is I was just going to make a chapter completely dedicated to the Pyro Adventures prequel
, but then I realized that I could splice that in to a explanation chapter about the main hero of the series, Lee " Pyro Lee" Pierce
In order to not seem redundant as the development history of the character was tersely explained back in chapter 7
, ill just cover a spark noted version. Originally created back in early 2000s
, the name, Pyro Lee
, went through many variations before settling on the final name. Starting as Reckless Red
, his character was based off the personality of rebellious pop culture icons of the era. ( I.E Sonic the Hedgehog and Bart Simpson). As time went on the name was later changed to Pyrokinetic Pierce(2003), Inferno Lee(2004),Pyrokinetic Lee(early 2005) and finally Pyro Lee in late 2005.
From then on his personality remained the relatively unchanged until the Great Revamp of 2010.
Like many characters and plots within the Pyro Lee Series, Lee received a complete overhaul from the ground up. His character designed was only slightly changed as he was made to be older, now as more developed teenager at the age of 16 instead of 13*
(Note:13 during the events of Pyro Adventures
) . This would lead to him being significantly more athletic then his 2005 to 2008 iteration. His powers gained a much more flushed out explanation as a some what uncommon occurrence that can happen to anyone within his home universe. Classified as a "Powered Human"
, Lee was among the 42% of people with the potential to develop abnormal abilities that are not associated with extrasensory perception based abilities(Psychic abilities).
Known by the slang term, "Hot Head"
, Lee's powers are based on the absorption and expulsion of heat through combustion. This is expanded upon in later installments, as Lee is classified as a "Mimic"
, thus explaining how he can harness other abilities such as electricity and wind currents to name a few. Following the changes of 2010, his personality was more subdued with him being more inclined to accept the status quo of his life while being slow to become accustom to changes that don't suite him.
While before he had more of a overconfident sense of swagger with a rather short temper and attitude towards authority, the revamped Lee is much more patient and complement but retains a some what diluted hyperactive personality towards adventures.
Chronological story line :
Born in Penn City, Pennsylvania, USA on November 7th 1989
, Lee lived a very simple life. His home life was relatively normal despite his parents being separated, he just lived the life of an average american kid. Public school, pizza Fridays, band practice, and video games. The life of Lee Pierce Jr( Named after his father, but normally known as Lee Pierce) was normal, no super solder stuff, no psychic shenanigans, just video games and his favorite snake cakes. Unlike the other covered characters such as Amy and Hank, there was not much to Lee's life until the events of Pyro Adventures. Pyro Adventures:
Now I only touched briefly on this series installment back in chapter 11
. However, that only covered Hank's story during the events of Pyro Adventures
. While Hank was dealing with his escape from quarantined Penn City, Lee was also present during the Last Bastion Incident of 2002.
Upon encountering the early mutated creatures, Lee's powers finally manifested when he was infected while trying to escape the caved in subway tunnels. His newly acquired power over fire or as he calls it, "Pyro Power"
, managed to burned the infectious mutagen out of his system through super heating his body. Getting topside, Lee found himself in City Hall
with C.R.I.S.I.S agents and civilians
trying their best to survive this nightmarish afternoon. Lee, looking to help, takes his new powers for a test run as he blasted the mutants with a volley of fire balls. These prove to be very effective against the creatures, as their body destabilized and dissolved from the heat.
Lee was praised for his aid in the defense against the onslaught of mutants by Agent Samson" Slamson"Bradly.
Using the city hall courtyard as a make shift fortified strategic location
, Agent Slamson along side fellow team member , Agent Craig "Banjo" Treble
, checked in with the other 4 members of his strike team, The Radical Squad.
Their task was to split up and create safe zones in strategic locations all over the city in order provide a haven for survives and a way to extract them via the Orbital Recovery Bubble( O.R.B)
or the O.R.B system
before a bio bomb would be deployed, purging the city off all organic life at sunset. Things go from bad to worse as 3 of the 4 locations report attacks from unique mutants. Lee over hears this and offers to help out since his powers make him both effective against and immune to the deadly mutant creatures
. Slamson scoffed at the idea but he cant help but realize that the kid would be a significant asset. After a brief call to Director Wesley Solar the 3rd
and a plea by Lee, Director Solar approves of this under the condition that Lee is to wear an auto O.R.B device as a percussion. The two set off to the east of Penn City following the signal of Agent Lucas "Slender" Cole
. As they made their way to the harbor area, they were attacked by a massive winged serpent like creature in the historic district of Penn City.
Desperately trying to evade the winged serpent through the winding historical streets, Slamson instructed Lee in a unique way he can use his fiery powers. While Slamson distracted the creature with gun fire, Lee claps his hands together to unleashed a massive short range raging torrent of fire at the serpent, sending it scurrying away with it's burned wings. After rescuing as many uninfected citizens as they could the two made it to the the harbor area but find that their too late as the safe zone was compromised and Agent Cole was already mutated
. Slamson took it upon him self to put the mutant agent down as Lee collected a black box with the agent's final audio log.
As they returned to the city hall base, Lee cant help but feel worried about the remaining 3 locations. After their adventure to the harbor and back the city seems to be beyond saving despite his new found powers. Slamson reassures Lee that things like this is just an average day at the office for a C.R.I.S.I.S agent
, but if he wants to back out theirs a O.R.B with his name on it ready to go. Lee hesitated for a moment but shook off the thought as this was his chance to be a hero,granted he still felt a feeling of fear and doubt deep in his gut. Receiving a new ordinance from a C.R.I.S.I.S ACC, the two mount Slamson's customized motorcycle to get to the other locations in a more timely fashion. Dubbed the Slamcycle by Lee, they head south to the next safe zone located at the Penn City sport arena complex.
Arriving at the complex, they find the location swarming with hostile mutants while survivors within sporting arenas try desperately to survive. Lee cant help but feel terrified by the situation as he clings Slamson. After a slight internal debate with himself, Slamson whips the armored motorcycle around almost as if he is abandoning the survivors. Lee feels both sadden that he couldn't help them but also relieved that he didn't have to face that massive crowd of horrific mutants. However, the slamcycle turns back around facing the hoard of mutants. Lee looked concerned by this sudden change as Slamson instructs Lee to take off his shirt. Lee complies but questions why. Knowing some Hot Heads himself, Slamson is aware of the fact that they can project heat and fire from every part of their body
. His plan is carve a path right to the baseball arena where the survivors are held up at. While Slamson blast the mutants in front of them with the Slamcycle's twin mounted gatling gun, Lee will use his flames to create a barrier of fire around them covering their blind spots. Ordering the on-board computer to hone in on the survivor's signal and hitting the throttle,the Slamcycle barred towards the mutants while Lee project flames from his bare back, arms and hands to cover their front, sides and rear. The plan was not without its problems as the bike began to overheat and Lee began to get exhausted. Yelling at Lee to hold on, the two burst on to the field with the Slamcycle spinning in circles towards the dugout. While that was happening, Slamson and Lee were unloading everything in to the field of mutants until they crash in to the dugout where the survivors were barricaded at. With no time to lose and mourn the lose of Agent Sarah" Amp" Nobel
, Slamson instructed the Slamcycle to self destruct and for Lee to emit the largest flame barrier he possibly can while he hands everyone an O.R.B. With everyone secured, Slamson activated the retrieval system whisking everyone away before the Slamcycle's self destruction.
Slamson and Lee returned to city hall via the O.R.B system with another Slamcycle waiting for them. Putting his jacket back on, Lee cant believe that they managed to survive that whole ordeal. There was no time to rest as the two made their way north towards the safe zone at the near by college of Conwell University
. Their way there was pretty easy as they arrived via the O.R.B system
. Landing in the college basketball stadium, the two were greeted by a woman with an eye patch. Her name was Agent Bridgett "Crossbones" Lockwood
, second in command of the Radical Squad under Slamson
. Her status shows as she managed to hold down her safe zone better then what they seen so far. Though things seemed to be running smoothly, her earlier call about a unique mutant terrorizing them was still on the table. Apparently it has the ability to burrow its way under ground, pulling people down in to the subway tunnels below. Heading down through the nearby station, the 3 are besieged by a hoard of mutants. This was a non issue for the two agents and fiery young hero as they fight off the mutilated monstrosities and follow the seismic tremors deeper in to the subway tunnels. After fighting their way past more mutants their ambushed by a mole like mutant
This prove to be quite the challenge as it was not only difficult to see despite Lee's fire based illumination, the creature also continuously burrowed under them consistently allowing it to bypass their conventional attacks. All this action resulted in a cave in separating Lee from the other 2 agents. Lee cant help but break down out of fear knowing that he was all alone in a dark train tunnel with the deadly mutants. Crying and doubting himself as he ran down the dark tunnel with the mole mutant in stalking him, Slamson and Crossbones try to calm the terrified young Lee through his radio.
Hearing the creature follow him faster, Lee runs as fast as he can until he reaches the next station. Hiding inside a maintenance closet on the platform, Lee hunkers down in the fetal position in absolute terror. He can hear the creature stalking around the station, its heavy foot steps growing ever more closer to his position as holds his breath. Suddenly there was a loud crumbling sound followed by silence. Lee was confused by this sudden silence, only the mole mutant to burst out of the ground in front of him within the maintenance closet ready to drag Lee below. In absolute panic, Lee releases a wave of fire from his body, brightening and engulfing the small room with flames. Completely immolated, the mole mutant burrows back underground through the platform.
Lee realized that theirs nothing to fear and that he has the power to fight back against the creatures. The creature returns for another attack but Lee uses his pyro powers to dodge around and stay mobile. Going on the offensive, Lee struggled to keep one hand lighting the area while defending himself with the other one. This is where Lee figured out that he can emit fireballs from his body and even detonate to cause some damage.
Thinking outside of the box with a prediction, he awaited for the mole mutant to attack from below again. Making noise on the ground to lure it, he quickly dodged out of the way and lobed a fire ball at the beast, but instead of bursting on contact like the usually do, the ball of fire lingered on the creature causing it to try to snuff it out on its body by digging back in to the ground. As soon as Lee punches his fist to his other palm, the ball burst causing the creature immense pain. While it was staggered, Lee takes advantage of this and his newly found discovery as he covers the beast with fireballs all over its deformed body. Trying to dig away frantically, Lee detonates the orbs of flame with in the creature's escape tunnel .All he heard was the distorted screams of the creature before it was interrupted of numerous foot steps. Slamson, Crossbones, and 3 more agents flood the station,weapons drawn and flashlights illuminating the dark train station
. They all returned to the surface with Lee ecstatically proclaiming his victory over the mole mutant.
Securing the location, Crossbones was impressed with Lee for his bravery, but Slamson was not so forgoing claiming that Lee lost his head back there and should be extracted to safety like the other civilians. Lee's panic attack back in that tunnel remind Slamson that Lee may have been powerful but he was still a kid, and this was no place for someone his age. With this safe zone secured, He and Crossbones would be more then enough to deal with the final safe zone distress signal. Lee attempted to argue but cant deny that whole adventure does feel like too much for him, however with his powers he can be a big help to them and they cant just give up on him after they made it so far. Slamson's decision was final as he activated Lee's O.R.B harness extracting him to the ACC. Sailing above the city to the hovering ACC above, he looks down to see the city destroyed by the mutants while bubbles just like his sail upwards
. Though part of him wished he could do more to help, he cant help but breath a sigh of relief knowing that he would have to deal with this nightmare any more. His relief would soon turn to dread as he can see the monstrous winged serpent from earlier heading right towards him. As it bit down on Lee's O.R.B bubble, a massive burst of fire erupts from the bubble immolating the head of the flying mutant as it falls in back to the ground with Lee.
With quick panicked thinking, Lee mustered all his energy to produce a torrent of fire towards the ground to break his fall. Though he made it to the ground safe and sound, the sheer effort resulted in him passing out. An undefined amount of time past as Lee was awaken by Slamson and Crossbones via the use of smelling salts. The bewildered Lee tries to get his bearings but was silenced by Slamson. After confirming that the western safe zone was compromised they came upon a strange amphibious creature approaching the passed out Lee . Despite jumping in to action to save him, their commotion attracted more mutants to their position, leading to their current situation. While on board a riverboat in the Leni Lenape River of Penn City, the 3 fought off a massive wave of small frog like mutants while trying to get back to land. After fending off the creatures, the larger amphibious mutant from before attempted to grab Lee but instead pulled Crossbones down under the water.
In a panic, Slamson jumps in after her using his seismic powers to blast the water upwards hindering the creatures escape. The force from his punch resulted in a massive splash that resulted in everyone being tossed ashore. The creature attempted to get back to the river, but Slamson grabs the creature repeatedly slamming it in to the ground. The brutality of Slamson's assault was subdued when the amphibious mutant manipulated the water from a near by puddle and used it to stab the berserk Slamson in the shoulder. Reeling back in pain, the creature attempts to use the newly opened wound to infect Slamson, but it was interrupted by Lee swiftly blasting it with a fire ball. Getting up close and personal, Lee delivered a devastating close range burst of fire to the creature, evaporating its makeshift water weapons and sending it crawling away in to the sewers. Lee returned to Slamson as he cradled Crossbones in his arms. During the conflict, Crossbones was wounded and infected by the amphibious mutant. Slamson realized there was no time left to call in emergency anti mutagen drop, and their O.R.B packs were washed away when the boat was tossed to shore.
Despite her usually cool and in control deminor, Crossbones literally felt fear of her inevitable demise. This was so suddent for her and it even felt down right unfair to a degree. Slamson's usually serious expression began to break as he uses his seismic power to stop her heart.
There was no time to grieve as the two were besieged by more mutants. The two took to the near by roof tops as they notice a odd armored transport truck mowing down a heard of mutants. Seeing this as their ticket out, Slamson and Lee jump on top of the transport truck while attempting to get the crew's attention. Despite wearing C.R.I.S.I.S uniforms they crew of the big rig open fire on the 2 leading to a fight on the top of the armored semi.
Slamson made quick work of the rouge solders but was unaware of the massive mutant creature towering over them. Smashing the ground, the rig was sent flying in to the Bastion Pharmaceutical main building. Crashing through the 4th floor window, the two manages to survive by hiding inside one of the armored trailers. There luck went from bad to worse as the found the entire building swarming with mutants while the massive one was approaching the building. With no remaining O.R.Bs, Slamson uses the radio signal within the armored trailer to contact Banjo and request an emergency extraction from their current position
. His request was approved with an estimated arrival time of 10 minutes, but in order to be extracted they must make their way to the roof top of the building, which was located on the 58th floor.
The two fought their way through the near endless hoard of mutants while dodging the attacks of the massive mutant out side the building. Arriving to roof top, they are greeted by an unusual individual. A bald woman clad in a skin tight silver suit overlooks the chaos that is unfolding in Penn city.
She turns to them stating that they were not the one she was expecting, but she is impressed in how they managed to survive for this long. She is also interested in the fact that Lee was able to ward off her "children"s infectious touch. Turning back to the view of the city, she explains how beautiful the city looks in the after noon and how its been so long since she seen real sky. Sitting on the edge of the roof top, the woman took a deep breath before stating that this world is too good for humankind. They squander and take it for granted, while continuously consuming more and more resources. She remembered when she was once human, she was a ESP user named Lisa Sanders. She uses the term "was" as that was her old life, before a the decade of tortuous experiments stripped her of her affection for the human race, now she was Hora, the mother of evolution(Sticking with Lisa to prevent confusion).
In an irritated voice she exclaims that these miserable humans took everything away from here, her life, her child, and her future. Its clear that all those years as Neo Bastion's testing bed resulted in her becoming mentally unstable and fueled by the hatred of not only Bastion Pharmaceuticals, but also the human race . Biding her time, she uses bits of her psychic powers to manipulate the other experiments created from her DNA. and when the time was right she would escape the underground lab with the other experiments to infect the city in to deformed mutants while operation under a psychically linked hive mind, her mind.
This was all the information Slamson needed, as he reached for his gun. However his arm was stopped and jerked upwards, instantly dislocating it. Lisa claims that she knew that he was going to do that the moment she took responsibility this outbreak. She could read his mind, and feel the rage rise with in him. This outbreak not only killed thousands but also cost him almost his entire team. After years of combat, and the intimate moments he and Crossbones shared, he knew that they would bit the bullet one day, but together making one final grand stand or noble sacrifice, not apart, terrified and alone.
He could feel his body tearing apart, but Lee steps in with a fire ball to throw off her focus. Though his deceleration to having little understanding of the situation was valid, he states in a juvenile fashion that since she was the one behind all this,then its he was his duty to try to take her down, like the hero he knows he can be. Lisa giggles at the young Lee, as she sees his childish attempt to play hero amusing.
She decides to humor him for a little while, as a way to kill time until C.R.I.S.I.S deploys the bio bomb upon the city. Lee is confused by her motive for awaiting the bio bomb deployment, but she calmly gestures to the cluster of O.R.Bs piling up in the sky. Something was blocking them from rising to the A.C.C, while small flying mutants swarmed them. She knew about the bio bomb at sundown, and constructed a powerful psychic barrier around the city. The Bio Bomb would be blocked out of the entire city. While her mutants break the containment field infecting the rest of Penn City. If Lee doesnt stop her, everyone would be killed or infected, that includes his family at home. Lee goes on the offensive, trying to blast Lisa from a distance with his pyro powers while dodging her psychic blast.
Lee unloaded everything he had at her but to no avail as her personal psychic barrier canceled out his attacks. She laughed at his attempts to hurt her, but her snide snickers turn shock as her personal barrier shatters from a fire ball colliding with her shoulder.
She reels back in pain as her grasp her singed shoulder. Lisa cant believe a kid like this managed to break her barrier, an attack from a hot head is nothing compared to a level 8 hyper class psychic. She tries to use her telekinesis to get a grasp of Lee, but her range appeared to be limited as well as her ineffective attempts to use her psychic energy attacks. After taking more blows from Lee, she realized that this was the work of a ESP scrambler, but that was impossible as she and her mutants destroyed all of them within the containment zone
. However this was not the case as the beaten and bloodied Slamson explains the she may have destroyed all the local ones, but there was one scrambler that she dident account for, Banjo's Scrambler. Directly from city hall, Banjo has his ESP scramble wave emitter pointed directly at the rooftop of Bastion Pharmaceuticals
. Lisa was in disbelief as her plan began to crumble around her, the massive psychic barrier she put up around the quarantine zone was destroyed as the trapped remaining O.R.Bs drifted towards the A.C.C. Lee and Slamson approached the burned and defeated Lisa stating that she will face justice for her crimes as well as Bastion Pharmaceuticals. Lisa was resistant and broken, clutching her head and muttering to her self that she "cant go back in the tube"
. In her hysteria , she mistakenly trips backwards off the rooftop of the building, plummeting to the ground below. Lee was shocked and disheartened by her sudden end. He thought to himself that she may have tried to destroy humanity, but this was because of Bastion Pharmaceutical in the end. Slamson explained that she was just another victim whose life and mind was twisted and mangled all in order to suit the motives of just another shady corporation. Lee felt both a wave of melancholy from Slamson's words and relief over this whole ordeal was over as he looked down at Penn City from the A.C.C. As soon as the sun set, the Bio Bomb was deployed , cascading the city in a thick dark blue mist.A few days later , Lee, Slamson and Banjo was hailed as heroes at a ceremony at the C.R.I.S.I.S headquarters.
For their heroic efforts during the " Last Bastion Incident"
the three were given the Award for Heroics
by the President, with Lee receiving the Key to the City 3 months later
. Agent Craig "Banjo" Treble decided to retire from active duty after 20 years of service.
He still works for C.R.I.S.I.S as the new head of communications and intelligence department . Agent Samson" Slamson"Bradly recovered from his wounds and went straight back to active duty despite being recommended to take a 6 month paid vacation
. Claiming that none can replace his team, Slamson devoted his entire being to his work taking on any and all solo missions that came his way with what only can be described as "ruthless efficiency
". As for Lee, he was made an honorary agent by the Director of C.R.I.S.I.S himself
,Wesley Solar the 3rd.
Due to his age, Lee would be a reserve agent in training
, but as Director Solar states, Lee has and showed the potential to be a major asset to the peacekeeping organization in the foreseeable future. Pyro Lee:
As explained fully in Chapter 8, Pyro Lee serves as the first entry in to the Pyro Lee Universe. Picking up roughly 3 years after the Last Bastion Incident,
Lee finds himself forced in to a death tournament called the Calypso Battle Royal
. During this tournament, Lee comes in contact with series regulars, Amy Akahoshi and Hiro" Hank" Trevors.
The story was concluded with Lee and the reigning champion, Kazuma,
tearing a hole in a realm between space and time known as the Omnivoid
, resulting in both combatants being sucked in and presumed dead. This lead in to the first spin off story, Pyro Lost.Pyro Lost:
Kicking off directly after the conclusion of Pyro Lee, the titular hero, Lee ,and former Calypso Battle Royal champion, Kazuma, find themselves trapped in a realm between time and space known as the Omnivoid
. As fully explained in Chapter 9
, this story is split between both Lee and Kazuma reliving their memories in order to escape the Omnivoid. By the end of the story, Lee with the help of Amy, the Fine Edge Foundation and C.R.I.S.I.S managed to break free of the Omnivoid and return home, while leaving Kazuma trapped with in the empty void
. However, the post story shows that something else escaped the Omni void along with Lee. This would be the first canonical appearance of his doppelganger, Nexus, the main antagonist of both Pyro Lee 2: NEXUS and the final arc of the Amy centered spin off series, Star Girl.Star Girl
As this spin off focused on the life and times of Amy Akahoshi post Calypso Battle Royal and before Pyro Lee 2
, Lee serves more as a minor supporting character with in the 3 story arcs. Appearing in only 12 out of 39 episodes
, Lee served as a love interest to Amy with them officially becoming a couple during Cortex War Arc.Hiro's Journey Another side story taking place in the year in a half gap between the events of Pyro Lee and Pyro Lee 2: NEXUS, this follows Hank during his time as an agent of C.R.I.S.I.S .
Due to his heavy involvement with the C.R.I.S.I.S organization, Lee was a major supporting character with in the first act
, as he along side Amy aided Hank in ousting traitors within peacekeeping organization. This was also the story where Lee discovered that his powers were mimetic, as in able to copy particular attributes other then just fire. Pyro Lee 2: NEXUSA year in a half following the events of Pyro Lee

By the climax of the story, Lee and Nexus return to the Omni Void for their final battle. Lee attains a portion of the World Arcana allowing him to reset his erased universe and put an end to Nexus, by trapping him within the Cosmic Tree, Bodhi.
Epilogue:After the events of Pyro Lee 2: NEXUS
, its seen that Lee and Amy ended up starting a life together while continuing his work as a C.R.I.S.I.S agent. As time went on, Lee became immensely powerful through training and experience.

Lee is an African American youth from the east coast of the United States
. His physical appearance underwent many changes through the entire franchise starting with his hair, which appeared to have grown more out as the series continued. Starting with a clean line up fade
until Pyro Lee 2, where Lee's hair has grown more out and combed back. Many have mistaken his hair to be spiky but in actuality it mildly nappy. In Pyro Adventures, he was much more heavy set and out of shape
but by the time of Pyro Lee, his character design was heavily slimmed down to a more athletic frame
. His appearance would become slightly more muscular and taller leading in Pyro Lee 2: NEXUS. In Pyro Lee 2, Lee has much more muscular definition in his upper body with broader shoulders
. His outfits usually have a consistent pattern of orange and black them despite their differing in appearance
. Canonically speaking, Lee wears an orange fleece jacket with a graphic tee shirt in most of his appearances. In Pyro Adventures, the fleece jacket was solid bright orange
while in Pyro Lee
, his jacket had a duller orange tone with parchments of black kevlar along the sleeve and shoulders
. He also wore an bullet proof vest over the orange jacket. In his appearances in Star Girl and Hiro's Journey, Lee was seen in either a black graphic t-shirt with his original orange fleece hoodie tied around his waist
, while his usual attire was a solid black sleeveless shirt with blue shorts and an orange belt, or a simple black and orange t-shirt with khaki cargo shorts . In Pyro Lee 2, Lee's new outfit was an orange and black compression shirt with a form fitting blue vest
and black cargo pants.
His various forms through out the series also have their note worthy appearances
. In his Inferno form
, fire can been seen radiating from his eyes and mouth while his nervous system is seen glowing bright orange through his skin leading to his forearms that also glow orange to insinuate their super heated nature. His Hydro form
has Lee's body taking on what ever large quantity of liquid substance he comes in contact with, this can range from transparent water, thick blood, or molten metals. This also translates to his Terra form
with an emphasis on solid substances. Vortex form
turns Lee in to semi transparent wind that carries a light greenish color. Dynamo Lee
retains his normal appearance,but this is more of a construct with his actual body being composed of live electricity arching in a humanoid form with slight noticeable electrical discharges. Spooky Lee
retains his normal appearance, but with a turquoise colored aura enveloping him, his visibility depends on the aptitude of the ESP user with spiritual beings. Divine Lee
retains his normal appearance apart from his eyes and mouth radiating a brilliant golden light, he is also draped in a long shimmer golden fleece jacket. The final form of Lee in the series, Cosmic Lee
, has him taking on a completely new look. His pants and shirt become a sleeveless one piece black and orange jumpsuit. His gauntlets and boots turn from their normal orange and black paint job to a highly polished pearlescent orange finish. His eyes become pulpiness white while his entire body is engulfed in a semi transparent flaming aura.Trivia:
- Though this is the Lee Pierce of Universe 37, he was the first one created by Prime
- Lee is an avid fan of the fictional video game character, Rapid the Porcupine, an obvious play on the character of Sonic the Hedgehog but also a reference to the old video game review show,X-Play.
- Lee took on the name Pyro Lee after his defeat of Hora(Lisa Sanders). From then on he confidently refers to himself by that name whenever possible.
- Lee's username on most internet sites is " cannedheat99" a reference to the song Canned Heat by the British funk band, Jamiroquai.
- Though Lee cant naturally understand Japanese language, his mental link with Amy translates the language for him, however she has to be in close proximity for it to work.
- Lee has a deadly allergy to nuts.
- By Pyro Lee 2, its revealed that Lee personally named all his attacks and "Special attacks". Some have been mentioned in the chronological time line segment, but a few others would be : Pyro Launch,Pyro Field, Pyro Punch, Pyro Piller and Pyro Slam.
Alright, this is it, for the next installment we will be getting in to Pyro Lee 2: NEXUS. I promise, for reals, cross my heart, I'm serious this time.
