FIRST APPEARANCE: RIGHT HERE
"Weapons can win battles, but words can
Profile: Hubcap is determined to
be the best friend of everyone in the galaxy. With an affable nature
and an infectious wit, his fellow Autobots can't help but like him. He's
generous enough to offer your the world, and charming enough to make you
believe he can make good on his promise. What his friends quickly find out,
however, is that he'll drop them without a second's hesitation as soon as
they cease being useful to him. Suffice to say, Hubcap can't be trusted.
Beneath his Autobot insignia beats the energon pump of a true con aritst,
and he rarely misses the opportunity to take advantage of the situation to
twist it to his own ends. This brilliant mastermind has a genius for deception,
and is living proof of the old Cybertronian adage, "You can't tell an Autobot
by his finish."
Abilities: Hubcap can serve as an
auxiliary communications relay for the Autobots. Equipment in his head module
is capable of detecting, redirecting, or jamming airborne transmissions,
ranging from AM and FM carrier wave signals to shortwave radio signals to
UHF and VHF television broadcasts to sub-orbital satellite signals as weak
as one millionth of a watt. He is adept and agile, particularly in his sports
car mode. He has a maximum speed of 90 mph and a top range of 1000 miles.
His greatest skill, however, is his ability to manipulate others to
achieve his goals.
Weaknesses: Hubcap is neither strong
nor particularly durable. The only defensive capabilities he has to fall
back on are his own savvy and cunning.
