Created with a built-in fusion reactor running at higher than original efficiency, he can use it as a weapon to generate intense light and heat or powerful electromagnetic waves. These energy
emissions are constantly radiating from his body, inducing negative effects in his nearby teammates\' internal systems, so unless he provides
rigorously secure shielding, he is only rarely included in unit activities. His top atmospheric speed is 2400 km/h, while he can reach 16000 km/h in outer space. Sunstorm is secretly convinced he is a supernatural being, and his frequent flashes of bizarre speech and
behavior tend to keep his comrades at an excessive distance.Weapons...Gamma-Ray Laser Cannons, Burst Missiles.

Profile: Sunstorm's original manufacturing took place during a fierce period of insurgency in one of Cybertron's chief industrial sectors. As a result of a riot in a nearby power substation, quality control was disrupted along the assembly line for Sunstorm's model type and a host of electronic anomalies crept into his individual design. These anomalies produce a continual cascading effect in Sunstorm's primary fusion reactor, allowing it to operate at power levels that are far greater - and far more hazardous - than most of his fellow Decepticons. Consequently, Sunstorm is engaged in a near constant struggle to control the energy emissions that radiate from his superstructure, lest they cause severe damage to the systems of those around him. Sunstorm's unique condition had bred in him a zealous belief that his strength and abilities derive from some mystical source, and that the potential immensity of his power is indicative of some supernatural endownment. He will often make rambling statements that appear to his fellow Decepticons as nothing more than senseless babble, but the truth of these outbursts is far more disconcerting: Sunstorm is convinced he is in fact a living god.
Abilities: In vehicle mode, Sunstorm's top atmospheric speedis just under Mach 2.0, though he is capable of reaching interstellar velocities well in excess of 15, 000 kilometers per hour. In truth, he is capable of space travel at speeds that are virtually immesurable, based on the untested capacity of his power core. He wields two mass driver cannons in robot mode which fire high speed projectiles capable of punching through most types of advanced Cybertronian armor. In jet mode, he is armed with two heat seeking missile launchers. When Sunstorm is able to maintain full control of his reactor core, he is capable of using it to generate incredibly powerful bursts of electromagnetic radiation.
Weaknesses: Sunstorm's particular habits, in addition to the deletrious effects that he is capable of causing teammates by his sheer presence, frequently cause him to be excluded from critical missions. In jet mode, he rarely employs his own heat seeking missiles - on the occasion his target evades their reach, they are liable to turn back and target his own substantial heat signature![ Back To Top ]
