First Comic Appearance: Transformers #16
"To stop me, you have to catch me first"
Profile: Powerglide is a show-off. While most of his fellow Autobots are literally grounded by their abilities, he can take to the air, and he is exceedingly proud of that fact. He uses his ability to release brief bursts of great power to more than make up for his relatively slow flying speed. Consequently, his maneuverability is incredible. Whether putting on a show for his comrades or evading enemy fire, he delights in displaying his dazzling aerial virtuosity. And, like any showman, Powerglide only demands one thing from his audience after one of his performances- their appreciation. And he'll accept it from friend and foe alike.
Abilities: In vehicular mode, Powerglide can reach a cruising speed of 500 mph. He can, for short periods, increase his power output dramatically and increase his speed to 3200 mph. His maneuverability is excellent; he can complete an aerial loop perpendicular to the ground with a radius of only .3 miles. He carries small concussion bombs and can shoot a short range high-temperature thermal beam from the tip of his nose module. He can also use the beam in robot mode.
Weaknesses: As a result of the great confidence he has in his flying ability, Powerglide often gets into more trouble than he can handle with enemy jets. He has relatively little strength in robot mode.
