The Supplementary Archive includes all of the appended Transformers Universe entries, consisting of those which were printed in the later issues of the US Transformers comic during 1987-1990. Some additional "bonus" characters are included below. These characters are from the Transformers: Generations book published in Japan.

Transformers Universe Autobot

FREEWAY

Allegiance: AUTOBOT

Sub-Group: THROTTLEBOT

Function: SABOTEUR

First Comic Appearance: TRANSFORMERS #30

"Words can cut deeper than steel."

Profile: Freeway is the self-appointed comedian of the Autobots. He specializes in a particularly vicious brand of insult humor and is not afraid to aim his barbs at even the highest ranking of his comrades. He takes someone's slightest miscue as an excuse to unleash upon the poor fellow a merciless torrent of verbal jabs. He never fails to get a rise out of his audience or completely humiliate his victim. Probing deeper into Freeway's psyche, one would find that his comical behavior is a subconscious reaction to the high-pressure nature of his job- a way to release tension. He is surprisingly sensitive when he is the butt of a joke; he becomes clearly and extremely annoyed. If anyone laid into him as he lays into others, no doubt Freeway would be an angry tangle of overheated circuits.

Abilities: Freeway's specialty is spreading misinformation and setting traps. He's adept at intercepting coded radio transmissions, interpreting them, and then substituting his own erroneous signals instead. He's equipped with a broad-band, ultra-sensitive radio frequency detector and transmitter, disguised as his car AM FM radio, which enables him to do all this. He uses a variety of gadgets for sabotage: sonic land mines, magnetic homing grenades and powerful, rust-inducing oxidizing agents, to name a few. Sometimes, just for a laugh, he'll turn his destructive attention to a fellow Autobot, usually by using the oxidizing agent to give his target a severe case of rust-foot.

Weaknesses: Freeway is not particularly strong or fast, but he usually compensates for this with his cleverness. Sometimes he is a victim of his own comedic talents- at times he laughs so hard at his own jokes that he'll pop a few internal circuits from their connections and disable himself.
