Transformers Universe Decepticon

MINDWIPE

Allegiance: DECEPTICON

Sub-Group: HEADMASTER

Master Component: VORATH

Function: HYPNOTIST

First Comic Appearance: HEADMASTERS #2

"Just one look from me and you've lost."

Profile: Mindwipe is perhaps the most mysterious and definitely the most mystical of all the Decepticons. When not performing his duties as a Decepticon warrior, he devotes his time to trying to establish contact with the electromagnetic essences of long-dead Decepticons. He hopes that by communicating with them he can learn from them and avoid making the same mistakes they did when they fought and were eventually defeated by the Autobots. So far, despite designing and constructing numerous receivers, antennas and other equipment, his labors have borne only limited success. He has managed to pick up a few stray broadcast signals bouncing around outer space from some Earth television programs of the 1950s and 60s, but Iittle else. Of them, the TV show once known as 'My Mother the Car" Is his favorite. Mindwipe is binary-bonded to Vorath, the former Minister of Science of the planet Nebulos. Vorath was expelled from his office when Galen, a member of the ruling Council of Peers, uncovered Vorath's involvement in illegal medical experiments. When contingents of Autobots and Decepticons arrived on Nebulos and plunged the planet into war, Vorath saw an opportunity for revenge on Galen. Galen had allied himself with the Autobots so Vorath eagerly volunteered to undergo the bio-engineering process that gave him the ability to transform and become the head module of Mindwipe. Although things didn't work out exactly as Vorath had hoped, he fully enjoys his new life as a Decepticon Headmaster.

Abilities: In bat mode Mindwipe can fly at a maximum speed of 700 miles per hour, has a range of 1200 miles and has great strength. His eyes emit a sub-optic radiation that, although invisible, has the effect of overriding the self-will circuitry of almost any mechanical being who is unfortunate enough to look into them. In other words, he has the power to hypnotize Transformers. In robot mode he uses a viper pistol, which shoots a stream of liquid that paralyzes the neuro-circultry of any mechanical being it hits, freezing the victim in his tracks for up to 30 minutes.

Weaknesses: In his attempts to contact departed Decepticons, Minclwipe often becomes so involved in his self-induced trance-like states that he is unaware of anything else. This leaves him extremely open to enemy attack. He can be just as vulnerable while watching an old TV show, depending on how much he likes it.
