A little more about Big Nick:
Born and raised in Sudbury, Big Nick was a Mine Rescue Officer. After evacuating a collapsed nickel mine, he became trapped deep underground by an exploding smelter which left smoldering slag blocking his only exit. It is unknown how, but the smoldering slag bonded the surrounding nickel veins into Nick’s DNA.
With nickel bonded to his DNA, Nick has gained super-human abilities such as:
- Bulletproof skin;
- Super-human strength;
- Magnetic manipulation of base metals, including nickel.
Big Nick’s three-colored costume represents Sudbury’s diverse landscape and mining community.
- Green: It is not only Sudbury’s official color, but it represents the city’s growing flora and abundant wildlife.
- Grey: It represents Sudbury’s iconic rock formations, landscape and the many mines and mining communities.
- Gold: Part of Sudbury’s logo is a golden star, which also represents the many valuable minerals that are mined in the Greater Sudbury area.
