Character HistoryEdit

Originally Cruel and Vulgar were planned to come out together. Over time the plans changed which led to the creation of Brutal as Cruel's first partner.


Batch 237Edit

Cruel and Brutal began as standard Drone Troopers for the Cult of Dred. Hun-Dred originally sent out dozens of these soldiers, rebuilt from the remains of Zetonian citizens, to expand their domain. Maxx and the Robo Force were able to decimate the ranks of these Troopers forcing Hun-Dred to turn the remains over to his NEM scientists for research. The NEM scientists have been charged with finding new and dangerous weapons to take down the Robo Force. Part of this research involves the various compounds which NAZGAR has discovered over his 1000+ years of life. Collectively, the serums are referred to by the NEMs as the "dark forces" - a quirk from their reprogramming by Nazgar's drainer helmets. Batch after batch is run through reconfigured robotic entities, seeing what will activate new life in their Zetonian power sources.

Cruel has always been thought of as a partner to Vulgar the Destroyer... but in the new Robo Force tales, he had a different partner at first - BRUTAL THE ACTIVATOR. Brutal is the perfect match for Cruel's talents - talkative, brash, angry and strong, he always has Cruel's back in the fight with the Robo Force! His ultimate fate is still a mystery...

The Origin of the NazareenEdit


Combing the jungle surface

"The forces of Darkness comb the jungle planet, backed up by the power of CRUEL the DETONATOR...

It was with great disappointment that NAZGAR the TYRANT learned of the defeat of the Darkness Soldiers by MAXX ZERO and his ROBO FORCE on the jungle planet of the HUNTER ZEROIDS. The Zeroids, his greatest enemy... those who had taken his flesh and blood from him... their reappearance did not bode well for Nazgar's long-term plans. Even with his new body, fueled by one of the Zeroid's own Z-CORES, Nazgar still felt the fear which had creeped into his soul during the hundreds of years he was previously trapped in a small meti-plex jar. It could be no coincidence that they were seen again so close chronologically to when Maxx Zero appeared on Zeton - in a Zeroid Exploration Module to boot. If Commander Zogg still functioned somewhere... Nazgar resolved himself. Was he not the subjugator of worlds? The lone warrior in a crusade against the false gods of a thousand worlds? Maxx Zero - the Robo Force - the Zeroids - they were only problems to be solved.

New strategies were needed.

Cruel and Brutal join the Darkness Soldiers


Brutal brings up the rear

Nazgar left ZETON in the care of Battlestar the Guardian while Hun-Dred recovered from the Battle at Futura One. He would infiltrate the Zeroids using the transformation capabilities of his new form, in a new body lost to legend and discovered by the Cult of Dred - a "Super Zeroid". At the same time, he sent Cruel and Brutal to the jungle planet with a simple mission: find and capture a Zeroid... for a blasphemous experiment.

Commanding a literal army of Darkness Soldiers, Brutal and Cruel stalk their prey with the dark forces at their command! The terrain of the jungle planet varies, necessitating the use of Hover Tanks for some of the Soldiers. Immense foliage hides the energy signatures of the Zeroids. Cruel's silent form watches over the Darkness Soldiers. He supplies a special weapon to the commander of the Darkness which will be able to stun the Zeroid, should they find one. Brutal sings a ridiculous tune about "devil Zeroids in the tall grass" as he tears up the earth with his hooked arms.

Hunter Zeroid captured

A Zeroid darts out from its hiding place, but Brutal moves with unearthly reflexes. "I've got one, Cruel bay-bey!" Brutal exclaims. The Darkness Soldiers rush over, weapons at the ready. A Magnet Blaster shot knocks one Soldier unconscious. The hover tank moves into place, blasting the Hunter Zeroid with incredible concentrated magnetic force. The shock sends the Zeroid into a powered down state.

Now the experiment can begin.

With the Zeroid stunned, Cruel signals through his incredible communication antennae with his dark master, Nazgar. A short time later, a Darkness Soldier bears witness to the technological desecration to come. Nazgar has arrived! His brain rises from the shielding on top of his body, no longer stuck in a jar due to the infusion of Z-Core energy and Manglor blood! "Good job, my warriors." proclaims Nazgar. "The experiment can now begin." Though Cruel did not speak, Nazgar could sense that his silent warrior enjoyed the encouragement.

Nazareen Neo Zeroid in final form

From his techno-pack, Nazgar draws a biological horror - the Nazareen, a mass of tissue derived from his own superior restructured genetics. Its programming is known only to Nazgar, but it surely does not carry good tidings for the Zeroids. The creature is attached, a secretion of biological rust agents dripping onto the metals of the Hunter Zeroid. It digs into the casing that holds the brain mechanisms of the Zeroid, attaching itself deeply, learning the secrets of body configurations, weapon capabilities. Long dormant self-defense mechanisms take over, erasing the mind of the Zeroid before secret memories can be obtained. The machine and the flesh become one.

In its final moments, the Hunter Zeroid awakens, feels the pain of the Nazareen digging into its circuitry - whatever the approximation of pain the long-ago First Zeroid programmed into his progeny was equivalent to. His final thought before the creature and self-defense programming erased his mind, his personality, his soul forever was of ZEMO THE HUNTER. The Zeroid made a wish... a wish that his Zeroid patron would avenge this blasphemy against mechanical life.


Nazgar celebrates their success

The creature finished the changes in the body of the Neo Zeroid, creating a mobility system for it to move. Programmed with hate on a biological level, the Nazareen use Zeroid technology against the Prime Zeroids in a quest to subjugate the mechanical beings of the universe! Nazgar and his warriors celebrate the blending of flesh and machine!"[2]
