|~ Warren Peace|
Warren Peace is a false antagonist (later tritagonist) in Sky High, and Will Stronghold's former "arch-nemesis". He is a very feared student in the school, mostly because his father was a supervillain named Baron Battle, and his mother was a superhero with an unknown name. Since Will's arrival, Warren followed him closely to avenge his father's arrest by The Commander's (Will's father) hands.
He was portrayed by Steven Strait.
Powers and Abilities
- Pyrokinesis: Warren is a Pyrokinetic, he can create and control fire. He showed various aspects of this ability including creating extreme heat in his hands to burn others, without flames, he can control the fire to create something as small as a candle flame from a fingertip, to flames covering his arms and most of his upper body. He can also throw fireballs, and he has excellent aim. Warren was only able to create fire from his hands and could extend the fire to his arms. It is unknown if he could create fire from the rest of his body or extend the fire to any other parts of his body. If he could, he may be able to coat his entire body in flames. While the flames burn, his clothes are unharmed.
- Superhuman Strength and Durability: He also seems to possess superhuman strength and durability, he isn't quite invulnerable but he has been thrown through walls and into pillars by the super strong Will Stronghold, breaking them with his body, and getting up again a moment later seeming no worse for the wear and was able to effortlessly throw a destroyed metal object over a barrier during Save the Citizen.

In his next appearance Lash pranks both him and Will by tripping Will over making him crash into Warren and spill food all over him.

On the night before the homecoming Will after his breakup with Gwen is sitting in the Paper Lantern waiting for Layla. Warren finally lets go of his grudge against Will and he reveals to him the truth about Layla and the plan although he does point out how Will does deserve to be shut out and ignored by his friends for treating them so poorly.
