Wideload

Written by admin on October 11, 2007 | Characters |

ALLEGIANCE: AUTOBOT
SUB-GROUP: THROTTLEBOT

FUNCTION: MATERIALS TRANSPORT
FIRST APPEARANCE: TRANSFORMERS # 30

“Look good and you’ll have the world in your pocket.”

Profile: Wideload is usually so dirty one would think he sweated grease.
But muck-encrusted appearances can be deceiving – Wideload is a neatness fanatic.
He despises his Autobot role because of its messy nature. So obsessed is he
with looks that seldom does he consider the quality of a being’s character when
making a judgment about him, her or it. He makes no secret of his vanity. He
spends most of his free time polishing his finish or having another Autobot
do it for him for pay (which usually takes the form of surplus fuel that Wideload
had been lugging). He takes no special pride in his great strength and endurance;
he’d much rather be savoring the scent of a flower than be hauling a dumpsterful
of spare parts.

Abilities: Wideload is extremely strong. He can lift or carry up to
1,000,000 pounds in his dumpster. His range in truck mode is 1400 miles. Chemical
sensors within his hands and tires allow him to determine the chemical composition
of most substances almost instantaneously. The Autobots rely on him and this
ability to discover new sources of raw materials.

Weaknesses: Wideload is unusually susceptible to rust, a problem he
finds particularly embarrassing since he takes such extreme pride in his appearance.
He’s not particularly adept at driving over rough terrain and easily gets bogged
down in muddy, swampy environments.
