First Comic Appearance: Transformers #24
"You have to know where you are before you know what to do."
Profile: Nothing escapes Streetwise's notice. He dutifully records the most seemingly insignificant details knowing full well he may have use of such information later. So readily does he adapt to any environment that his fellow Protectobots suspect he possesses a mysterious eighth sense in addition to the seven standard senses with which he was built (sight, hearing, touch, smell, short-range radiowave transmission, magnetic sensitivity, and electric sensitivity). The truth is, Streetwise simply has an amazing capacity for understanding. He easily grasps local dialects; slang expressions instantly become part of his vocabulary. Once he sees a map of a new city, he drives through its streets as if he were born there. And he's as doggedly determined as he is clever. Nothing can deter Streetwise from seeking his prey- except an empty fuel tank.
Abilities: In car mode, Streetwise can reach speeds of 180 mph. His range is 400 miles. His trunk-mounted double-barrelled air-compressor cannon compresses air and then shoots it a distance of 50 miles with enough power to knock a jet out of the sky. In robot mode, he carries a photon pistol that shoots light bursts with the equivalent brightness of 5,000-watt light bulbs, enough to temporarily blind all but those whose optical sensors are the most heavily shielded. He combines with his fellow Protectobots to form the giant robot known as Detensor.
Weaknesses: In car mode, Streetwise sometimes overheats as a result of the unceasing manner in which he hunts his enemies.
