Cosmos (Marvel Comics)

Written by Darren 'Starscream' Jamieson on October 11, 2007 | Characters | Tags: ,

ALLEGIANCE: AUTOBOT
FUNCTION: RECONNAISSANCE & COMMUNICATIONS
FIRST APPEARANCE: TRANSFORMERS # 17

“Reach for the stars, but never leave your friends.”

Profile: Rocketing around the vast gulfs of outer space might seem like fun, but Cosmos knows the truth: it gets lonely up there. Sure, he understands that every Autobot has a job to do in the battle against the Decepticons, and he accepts his without argument. But he’s not always happy about it. Sometimes, to relieve the boredom of a long vigil orbiting the Earth, he’ll zip down at night and scare a few humans by hovering over their back yards. He also delights in showing off his maneuverability by zig-zagging through an occasional meteor shower. But mostly he maintains his solitary orbit. At least he’s comforted by one thought: he never gets stuck in any traffic jams like his auto-like brethren below.

Abilities: As a spacecraft, Cosmos can achieve Earth orbit and, with enough fuel, can reach escape velocity and go for relatively short jaunts – the Moon and back, for example. He can reach speeds of 40,000 mph. He can use himself as a communications satellite by bouncing signals from one Earth location to another. His optical sensors can see and record objects as small as a bicycle from 600 miles high. He has a high-powered particle beam capability that he can use with pinpoint accuracy in either spacecraft or robot mode.

Weaknesses: Cosmos is not well-suited to function as a robot on the ground – he’s slow, awkward and not too strong. Sometimes in his search for some pleasant diversions to relieve his boredom, he neglects his job. This unreliability can occasionally result in problems for any Autobot depending on him.
