Superion is a fierce and frightful machine. As the
collective consciousness of the five Aerialbots, Air Raid, Skydive, Fireflight, Slingshot and Silverbolt, he might find it confusing and
unproductive to assimilate each of his component
personalities into one. Therefore, he suppresses much of
what is potentially more than he can handle and directs
his thinking to one primary purpose: the destruction of
the Decepticons. And that's about all he's good for.
Little else interests him; he's unlikely to even engage
in conversation about anything else. The other Autobots
take this to be a cold and aloof attitude, as if Superion
held himself above them. In truth, it is the most
Superion can give of himself.
Superion can fly at speeds up to 800 mph. His range is
5800 miles. His strength is formidable; he can demolish a
battleship with one blow. The stress fracture cannon he
carries shoots a beam that locates and then overloads the
natural fracture lines in any object it hits. The result
can be anything from cracking open a peanut shell to
causing a small earthquake.
Superion finds it difficult to adapt to new situations
and to be innovative. His thought processes are too
primitive to allow for such higher mental functions. This
often restricts him in battle. Although incredibly strong
and resistant to most artillery and beam weapons, he does
have certain "pressure points" - areas of
structural weakness where one component Aerialbot
connects to the next - that are particularly vulnerable
