Powers/Abilities: Nero was a strong cyborg enhanced with a tracking device over his right eye and encased in an armored suit. It had a multiple weapon rack mounted on the back that could swivel around so that he could access one of four different weapons by reaching over his right shoulder. This included a flamethrower and a Gatling-style mini-gun. The battlesuit also housed the necessary ammunition for each type of weapon. However, the armored suit was bulky and restricted his movement and agility. He had a limited vocabulary.

Nero snarlsHistory:

(Warstrike#4 (fb) - BTS) - Nero was hired by Kyle of Xanadu to assassinate Warstrike as a means to help Senator Kline.

(Warstrike#1 (fb) - BTS) - Warstrike had finished beating up the drug dealer Strand and his lackeys when Nero attacked, gun blazing, and badly injured Warstrike, leaving him without weapons.

(Warstrike#1) - Warstrike beat a quick retreat and gathered up the ammunition he had left hidden in his outfit, gathering the gunpowder to use as an explosive against the armored assassin. Nero blasted his way through the wall, further injuring Warstrike who lost the flare he was about to use to ignite the gunpowder. However, Nero then holstered his heavy machine gun, rotating his back-mounted gun rack to access the flamethrower. With the fueled gun nozzle flaming, Warstrike threw the collected gunpowder at Nero, which delivered a massive explosion. As Warstrike healed, he watched Nero's burning body slowly topple and fall.

   Warstrike later pondered if Nero had been sent to kill Strand for discovering the plot to kidnap Kline's daughter.
