FIRST APPEARANCE: TRANSFORMERS # 25
who conquer act; those who are conquered think!"
Like an elemental force of nature, Rampage barrels
through life with unabated, uncontrolled fury. He has
difficulty talking coherently for more than a few seconds
at a time before he reverts to his "normal"
state, violently lashing out at anything or anyone

line on white paper. Although feared by his comrades,
he's appreciated even more so for the unequaled ferocity
with which he fights. Strangely enough, the only thing

In tiger mode, Rampage can leap to a height of 300 feet
over a distance of 500 feet. He's incredibly strong - a
kick from one of his forelegs can crumble a cinder block
wall. He has four twin gun-ports, one mounted above each
of his legs, and each capable of shooting 300 rounds of
small-caliber ammunition per minute. In robot mode, he
also uses a powerful lightning rifle, which shoots beams
of 60,000-volt electricity. He also has a thermo-sword,
which has a blade that heats up to 5000 degrees
Centigrade, allowing it to cut through most metals like
butter. He combines with his fellow Predacons to form Predaking.
As a consequence of the punishment they take from his
constant leaping, the springs and suspension system in
Rampage's four legs often break down and require
