Sunstreaker

Written by admin on October 11, 2007 | News |

ALLEGIANCE: AUTOBOT
FUNCTION: WARRIOR

FIRST APPEARANCE: TRANSFORMERS # 1

“They can’t beat the best.”

Profile: Sunstreaker is the complete egotist. He feels he is simply
the most beautiful thing on Earth. He is constantly discussing his sleek lines,
his aerodynamic styling and he is loudly and continually grateful to the Ark
for giving him such a magnificent body. Sunstreaker is faintly contemptuous
of the other sports-car Autobots, particularly his fraternal twin Sideswipe,
whose design, he says, is spoiled by the rear-mounted engine in his automobile
mode. When he is in his robot mode, Sunstreaker is the most dangerous, most
ruthless of the group; a calm, competent war machine. His biggest fault is his
tendency to stop so that people can admire him when he ought to be tending to
business.

Abilities: In Autobot mode, Sunstreaker wears a right shoulder-mounted,
laser-guided, ground-to-air missile launcher. Each missile is the equivalent
of 450 lbs. of TNT and can down a Decepticon jet fighter at a maximum distance
of 37.5 miles. He also carries an electron-pulse gun capable of emitting at
300 bursts per second a beam of highly energized electrons (the high rate of
emission makes it effectively a continuous stream of electrons). A sustained
burst of 1.5 seconds will burn a 3 inch hole in a .5 inch-thick plate of titanium-alloy
steel. His upper torso construction incorporates a tough polymer-steel skin,
making him particularly resistant to artillery fire.

Weaknesses: A potent arsenal and tough hide like Sunstreaker’s would
be sufficient to preclude any serious weaknesses, if it weren’t for his ego
and sociopathic tendencies. His inability to be a team player and overriding
lust for battle often diminish his overall value to the Autobots, and the ease
with which he can be baited by anyone, including adversaries, often puts his
well-being in serious jeopardy.
