Shortfuse the Cybernik was flying over the Lava Loch when the Black Asteroid exploded. The resulting electromagnetic pulse cut out his armour's power and he plummetted into the boiling sea, but was saved from death by his reserve life-support systems and his invincible armour. When the power was finally restored, he crawled to the shore, but the lava caked on his armour solidified, trapping him as a statue. A local lizard summoned the Freedom Fighters to examine the strange "lump of rock" that had appeared, and Shortfuse was subsequently freed.
