Description[edit | edit source]
Pyro is unlocked in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes after completing "Juggernauts and Crosses", the eighth level in the game. He can then be purchased for 150,000 studs. Pyro's character model has blonde hair with a dark red head piece, representing a mask. He has a print design on this head piece, white for eyes behind the mask, and a flesh colour around the mouth area for the uncovered part of the face, and a black mouth with white sometime showing for teeth. Pyro's body area is yellow with dark red hands and has a black muscle design on the front. Some areas on the suit are coloured dark red, a central area on the front, and a horizontal band towards the bottom of the torso on the back. Pyro's legs are yellow, with dark red on the top and center of the hip joint to finish off the dark red design, and dark red on the front and outer sides of the legs, representing boots. Pyro also has a red backpack attached between his head and body, which is for his flamethrower Pyro uses to produce fire (Pyro's superpower allows him to only manipulate fire, not create it).
In LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, Pyro has the ability to jump and perform melee attacks, as well as to use a ranged fireball attack, and to focus his fire into a steady narrow stream allowing him to destroy gold objects.
Background[edit | edit source]
Pyro, born John Allerdyce, was a mutant who had the ability to manipulate fire (though cannot conjure it) and eventually joined Magneto's Brotherhood of Mutants. Like most members of the Brotherhood, Pyro was known to fight many battles against Professor X's X-Men.
Pyro, along with Juggernaut, Toad and other members of the Brotherhood of Mutants attacked the X-Mansion, and engaged Iceman in a duel. However, Iceman managed to gain the upper hand and froze him in a block of ice. Later, Pyro set fire to a pile of tyres in New York City, however, the fire was put out before it was able to spread.
