– Wreckingbolt before turning into Hot Shot.
Hot Shot is a muscular magma-based lifeform whose body is composed of a dark orange inner magma body covered by olive green rocks on his torso, which turn dark red upon reaching his kneecaps and lower legs and they also cover his hands in the form of fingerless gloves.
His face is brown with a well developed mandible and visible fangs, whereas his head has four dark orange and red spikes on top, in the style of a Mohawk. His feet have a slight oval-like pattern with only two toes.
While under the influence of Charmcaster, Hot Shot's flames were recolored purple.
The Antitrix symbol is located on his collarbone.
Powers and Abilities
Being part-Pyronite, Hot Shot shares many of the same abilities as Heatblast, such as pyrokinesis, heat generation, and fire breath. However, based on Kevin's alterations to the Antitrix, Hot Shot is most likely much more powerful and hotter than Heatblast.
Hot Shot possesses enhanced strength and durability.
Being part-Pyronite, Hot Shot shares many of the same weaknesses as Heatblast. For example, he is unable to use his powers when in contact with water or any other extinguishers.
Because of his fiery body, Hot Shot cannot hold anything that is not fireproof without burning or melting it.
Hot Shot can lose his fire out of exhaustion, as demonstrated by Heatblast.
Due to Kevin's alterations to the Antitrix, Hot Shot is too powerful for the inexperienced Kevin to currently utilize to the fullest.
