Profile: Spinister rarely speaks, and when he does it's only in relation to the matter at hand. He is wary about revealing any details about himself, so he has few friends among the Decepticons and none who truly know him. Despite the personal gulf that exists between him and his comrades, they all respect his amazing combat record and ability to appear in the nick of time on the battlefield. Cool and professional, Spinister doesn't gloat about his abilities, and he's careful never to underestimate his foes. Suspicions have arisen among many of the Decepticons, suggesting Spinister has developed a "cloaking" system—a technology that allows him to turn invisible and avoid detection. Needless to say, Spinister refuses to indulge such rumours.
Abilities: In helicopter mode, Subject travels at 520 mph for up to 1,300 miles. Subject is heavily armed; his arsenal consists of twin automatic particle beam cannons, twin target-lock laser rifles, two remote control-guided fusion bombs, and a nuclear-powered flame-thrower. All weapons, apart from the fusion bombs, are accessible to him in his robot mode. He is an accomplished marksmech, one of the finest within the Decepticon ranks. Subject can disappear from sight using an undisclosed method of cloaking his appearance and all audible noise; he uses this to sneak up effectively on targets in either mode.
Weaknesses: Subject's rotor blades are prone to stress fractures after 12,000 miles of continued use. The blades require a vigilant maintenance schedule to avoid in-flight failure. Despite his powerful arsenal, Subject is only an average hand-to-hand combatant.
