Base of Operations: USA
First Appearance: Prototype#3 (October, 1993)
(Ultraverse II Origins card #42) - Heater was recruited by a Terrordyne subsidiary known as Ultra-Violence.
(Prototype#3) - Armed and skull-masked Terrordyne agents attacked the plane carrying players from the Denver Rangers baseball team headed for the World Series from St. Louis airport. Terrordyne wanted to hold the players ransom, but Prototype intervened. Rangers player Buzzy West helped knock out the criminals. Heater stepped in and took the fight outside. The Rangers and the Terrordyne agents were evacuated from the airplane, which was soon after incinerated by the angered Prototype.
(Prime I#1/2) - Terrordyne agents, armed with a massive truck-mounted cannon, attacked Dinsey Studios because they hated its cartoon characters. Prime easily thwarted their attempt, knocking each one out and passing details on to the police.
(Prototype#10) - Terrordyne was concerned it was
losing ground to other terrorist groups. Led by the brutal Karl and
filmed by Egon, an armed Terrordyne faction sought notoriety by
detonating the head of New York's Statue of Liberty, holding hostages
and claiming the island as its own territory. Aladdin agents, Jake
Alexander and the armored hero Ranger (Bob Campbell) attacked and took down all Terrordyne
activists, although Karl and Egon escaped.
Comments: Created by Tom Mason & Len Strazewski (writers), David Ammerman (penciler) and James Pascoe (inker).
Prime I#1/2 (April, 1994 Malibu print date) was (re?)packaged as Wizard Presents Prime I#1/2 (May, 1994 Wizard print date), a promotion from Wizard the comics magazine. And that's Prime [half].
Profile by Grendel Prime.
Terrordyne has no known connections to:
Buzzy West was a high-profile, professional, left-handed baseball player dubbed the "Homerun King". A member of the Denver Rangers, he was on board the plane when it was hijacked by Terrordyne agents, who deliberately hit his injured shoulder. He knocked out a Terrordyne agent with a handy baseball bat (somehow not checked-in). He was non-plussed when Prototype asked for his autograph.
