FIRST APPEARANCE: TRANSFORMERS: GENERATION 2 #1
"Destruction! Beautiful, glorious
Profile: Eagle Eye is a devious
Decepticon whose penchant for dishonesty is legendary. He tells a different
lie to every robot he interacts with and somehow manages to keep track of
every single one. Not even the other Decepticons are spared from his vicious
brand of manipulation. Unscrupulous and cunning, Eagle Eye is dangerous to
cross and impossible to trust. In fact, the only thing he can said to be
genuinely honest about is his loathing for the Autobots. His considerable
venom for them represents a hatred of a whole new caliber, and he takes advantage
of any opportunity afforded him to smash them on first sight.
Abilities: Eagle Eye was named so
for his legendary visual acuity. He has the most sophisticated optic sensors
of all the Decepticons. He can read the license plate of a car from a
stratospheric altitude of 40 miles. He possesses full-spectrum vision, enabling
him to see in infrared, ultraviolet, and in pitch darkness. He can even read
light waves, and cannot be fooled by cloaking devices or holographic projections.
In plane mode, he is equipped with an undercarriage radar targeting system;
it detaches to form a separate weapon for use in robot mode, which he uses
to attack with deadly accuracy.
Weaknesses: Eagle Eye tends to rely
on his vision to the exclusion of his other senses. He frequently misses
the point of conversations and is usually the last one to detect Autobot
gas fumes, if at all.
