FIRST APPEARANCE: TRANSFORMERS # 1
when the enemy isn't looking."
Skywarp is the sneakiest of the Decepticons. On Cybertron
he was known to appear out of nowhere in the middle of
peaceful Autobot villages to rain terror and destruction
upon them, if the mood hit him. He'll even use his
teleportation powers to play a prank on a fellow
Decepticon. Everyone enjoys this except the butt of his
joke since Skywarp's sense of humor tends to be rather
cruel and physically abusive. Skywarp isn't too smart and
would be totally useless without the supervision of Megatron.
Skywarp can reach a top speed of 1500 mph. But what makes
him unique is his ability to instantly teleport himself a
maximum distance of 2.5 miles. He also carries a
heat-seeking missile launcher and a variable-caliber
Skywarp's control of the accuracy of his teleportation
power diminishes as the distance he teleports increases.
As a result, if he's not too careful, he's likely to
crash into things when he arrives at where he's
teleporting. Not being too bright doesn't help him avoid
these accidents either.
