Mantis

Series: Beast Wars II
Faction: Maximal
Subgroup: Insectrons

Marvel's Transformers Universe Profile

Profile: Of all the Insectron warriors Mantis is by far the most hostile. He likes peace and quiet and if disturbed he'll explode into a fit of rage that's nearly impossible to avoid. Though he seems like an absolute nutcase he only wants one thing, relaxation. As a member of the Insectrons he and his cohorts left Cybertron in an attempt to escape the wars that never seemed to go away. He had thought he had found a safe haven on Gaea. Now that the battle has been shifted to his new home he doesn't care what side he fights on just as long as everyone just leaves him alone!
Abilities: When Lio Convoy and Apache first saw the blades of Mantis they equated them with the scythe of Death himself. In praying mantis mode he makes excellent use of his weapon, slashing any opponent to pieces without the slightest hint of effort. In robot mode he can eject buzzsaw disks that are virtually impossible to avoid and even harder to block. Mantis also has the power of flight thanks to his two insect wings. With this ability he can pick enemies off with his saw attack while remaining safely in the air.
Weaknesses: Mantis' loose-cannon attitude often makes him a threat to both Predacon and Maximal. Few trust him and he is often left on his own.
