FIRST APPEARANCE: TRANSFORMERS # 1
is worse than my bark."
Given his reputation for civility and sophistication, it
might seem surprising at first that Buzzsaw is also one
of the cruelest and most destructive of all Decepticons.
But his two sides are not contradictory. He carries out
his lethal tasks with the careful, reasoned approach of a
fine artist, with the cool precision of a neurosurgeon.
He views every awful undertaking of his as the beginning
of a new masterpiece. Every opponent he defeats marks a
completion. And, like any true artist, nothing can sway
him from his commitment to his deadly craft. He will only
end his career when the Autobots are no more.
Using his optical sensors, Buzzsaw can pinpoint and
photographically record a thumbtack at 20 miles, making
him invaluable on spy missions. He can fly virtually
soundlessly at speeds up to 250 mph for a distance of
1500 miles. He's equipped with twin mortar cannons that
can fire five rounds per minute. His most feared weapon
is his beak, which, with its diamond-hard, micro-serrated
edges, he can use to carve up all except the most
strong-skinned opponents. And, like the artist he is, he
uses his beak with great finesse.
Buzzsaw has a tremendous ego. If one of his carefully
planned operations should go astray, ruining what he
considers a work of art in progress, he will often stop
and sulk rather than improvise and proceed.
