FIRST APPEARANCE: RIGHT HERE
"Trust me if you dare!"
Profile: Skyjack is a master of
espionage. As a spy plane, he is skilled at watching his enemies in secrecy,
but he also excels at operating in plain sight. He's been known to
buy a can of high-octane turbo juice for a complete stranger, and extract
every useful piece of information out of him before the can is half-empty.
Most of the time, it's not until Skyjack is long gone that his victims realize
he is not to be trusted. Even the Decepticons watch their backs when he's
nearby. Rumors have circulated within their ranks that Skyjack is secretly
sympathetic to the Autobot causeparticularly after one incident in
which he was caught on film during a secret meeting with Optimus Prime. Skyjack
has done little to dispel these doubts about his true allegiance. Ironically,
with the Decepticons watching him so closely, looking for some sign of treason,
Skyjack finds it that much easier to steal secrets from them.
Abilities: In jet mode, Skyjack
is capable of speeds exceeding Mach 2.8. His stealth armor provides him with
the ability to cloak his presence from Autobot radar, enabling him to operate
behind enemy lines while going completely unnoticed by his enemies. He is
equipped with a wide range of onboard scanning equipment and recording devices,
for use on his spy missions. His onboard missile launcher fires magnetic
scrambler rockets that can interrupt electronic signals within a half-mile
radius. This missile launcher becomes his right arm in robot mode. He can
frequently be found practicing firing at cars on the beltway alongside his
personal idol and mentor, Dreadwing.
Weaknesses: Skyjack is not particularly
durable, relying largely on his ability to remain undetected during the course
of his duties.
