Fuction: Decepticon Aerospace Commander
First Appearance: Comic-Transformers #1
"Conquest is made of the ashes of one's enemies."
Profile: Starscream makes no secret of his ambition to oeverthrow Megatron as Decepticons Leader. He is ruthless, cold-blooded and cruel. In that sense the two rivals are very much alike. But he has a vain side that clearly distinguishes him. He considers himself the most sophisticated and handsome of the Decepticons. He exudes a high-class, urbane air that provides a certain irony to his muderous tendencies. He looks down at Megatron for being antiquated in his military strategy. Starscream believes the Decepticons should rely more on guile and speed rather than, brute destructive force to defeat the Autobots. Megatron overlooks the potential threat Starscream represents for one very good reason: Starscream is very good at his job.
Abilities: Starscream is one of the fastest flyers of the Decepticons, reaching speeds up to Mach 2.0. He can climb to sub-orbital altitudes of near ground level in mere minutes. This makes him particularly effective in surpriese attackes and a hit-and-run actions. He can shoot cluster bombs a distance of 40 miles, each of which can level an area 10,000 feet square. His null-ray rifle can interrupt the flow of electrictiy in any circuitry it hits for periods of up to two minutes, effectively preventing the operation of many machines dependent on those circuits during that period.
Weaknesses: Starscream overrates himself sometimes, and finds himself in situations that are more that he can handle. His nose-dives often overload his gyro-circuitry leaving him disoriented briefly. But, oeverall, he is very tough nut to crack.
