First Comic Appearance: Transformers #2
"Strike when the enemy isn't looking."
Profile: Skywarp is the sneakiest of the Decepticons. On Cybertron he was
known to appear out of nowhere in the middle of peaceful Autobot villages to
rain terror and destruction upon them, if the mood hit him. He'll even use his
teleportation powers to play a prank on a fellow Decepticon. Everyone enjoys
this except the butt of his joke since Skywarp's sense of humor tends to be
rather cruel and physically abusive. Skywarp isn't too smart and would be
totally useless without the supervision of Megatron.
Abilities: Skywarp can reach a top speed of 1500 mph. But what makes him
unique is his ability to instantly teleport himself a maximum distance of 2.5
miles. He also carries a heat seeking missile launcher and a variable-caliber
Weaknesses: Skywarp's control of the accuracy of his teleportation power
diminishes as the distance he teleports increases. As a result, if he's not too
careful, he's likely to crash into things when he arrives at where he's
teleporting. Not being too bright doesn't help him avoid these accidents either.
