action equals quick victory."
Windcharger is the fastest Autobot of them all - for
short distances. He can go from 0 to 60 mph in automobile
mode in almost no time whatsoever, and that makes him
useful in certain situations requiring very fast, very
decisive action. His personality is similar: what
Windcharger decides he decides immediately. He glances at
something and moves, seldom bothering to ask questions.
This may be because his attention span isn't particularly
long. He becomes instantly enthusiastic and a few hours
later loses interest. His impatience often diminishes his
usefulness in lengthy, complex courses of action.
In robot mode, Windcharger's arms act as the positive and
negative poles of a magnet. He can cast powerful magnetic
fields at distances up to 700 feet. He can levitate a
10-ton block of steel at that distance. He can attract
objects that are affected by magnetism toward him or
repel them. At closer distances he can rip them apart.
If overused, his magnetic ability uses up tremendous
amounts of power. Hence, he must be careful in using it.
Unfortunately, Windcharger is seldom careful and so is
prone to debilitating burn-outs.
