FIRST APPEARANCE: TRANSFORMERS # 1
Brawn looks on Earth as essentially a hostile environment
- and he loves it. He is the most macho of the Autobots.
He delights in challenges and when he faces one he
becomes fully alive. He is strong, rugged and very agile
- which is why he is frequently teamed with Bumblebee when the Autobots are in a
mountainous environment - but it is his enjoyment of the
challenge that makes him valuable to his leader, Optimus
Prime. He won't be
discouraged and that helps the morale of the rest. He is
hardy and enjoys a good joke, if it is not too subtle.
His main fault is that he tends to be contemptuous of
those not as tough as he.
Brawn is one of the strongest Autobots. He can lift up to
190,000 lbs. and knock down a small building with one
punch. His endurance and resistance to artillery fire are
among the highest of the Autobots.
As the Autobot with perhaps the least sophisticated
circuitry - most of his components focus on his strength
- Brawn is very vulnerable to attack by electromagnetic
and other types of waves. His eagerness to show off his
strength often results in his using it improperly and
without thinking. He's been known to destroy an entire
building before realizing it's the wrong one.
