Nodtech Industries was founded by Marvin Noddick during the early twentieth century. Marvin was a great pioneer in different types of technology, constantly helping the United States Armed Forces with different and innovative weapons, and aiding the government to enhance its metahuman resources. Years later, along with Eton Enko, he created a Sphere Core Reactor-- a source which provided free, pure and efficient energy for Nodtech Industries’ main facilities.
After the death of Marvin on May 23rd, 2002 at the hands of Rikti, the company was inherited by Michael Noddick. With the help of Carlisle Brettson (Brettson was appointed interim CEO immediately after Marvin’s death before Michael could officially assume the position of CEO), Michael was able to transition into the position of leadership he still holds today.
In 2004, during a demonstration in Afghanistan of Nodtech Industries newest ordnance, Michael was kidnapped by the terrorist organization known as the Denary Legacy. The Legacy tried to force Michael into building weapons for them, and to escape captivity, he instead manufactured an android weapon platform powered with a miniaturized Sphere Core Reactor. Upon his return to the States, he discovered his Legacy captors had already possessed Nodtech Industries technology, illegally purchased in the black markets of the world.
Michael further developed his android platform to create new models (including the Voltric, Weapon, Furnace, Defendroid, Excelsius, Solid, Tower and Forge units) and used those resources and more to track down and destroy stolen Nodtech Industries technology. Michael would later discover that Carlisle Brettson was selling Nodtech equipment in some less than fully above-board transactions behind his back. Michael would confront Brettson, and they settled their differences, agreeing to continue working together. Carlisle Brettson is now second-in-command at Nodtech, a trusted advisor and trustworthy companion.
Following the Second Rikti Invasion in 2007, Nodtech Industries made privatized security a part of its services and became the patron of Project H.E.R.O. Meanwhile, Brettson has procured permits to build a facility in Washington, D.C.
Project H.E.R.O. recently opened a base in Paragon City, dubbing it the Sphere Stronghold, as it is powered by a new prototype Sphere Core Reactor. The current Project Leader is Elaine Ford, with her trusted Field Commanders codenamed ‘PUNCH BUG’ and ‘Elly the Helper’.
