Hero Overview

Sunstreaker-dreamwave.jpg

Sunstreaker is an Autobot in the Transformers franchise.

Transformers: Generation 1

Sunstreaker was one of the first generation of Autobots in the original Transformers television series. He was the twin brother of Sideswipe, another Autobot, and like him also turned into a Lamborghini Countach. His alternate mode however, was yellow and had a modification in the form of an engine that sticks out the back. He was described as the ultimate egotist, being notoriously difficult to work with and pair up with anyone else besides Sideswipe, and described himself as the most beautiful thing ever and Cybertron's greatest warrior. He was also a cold, ruthless and effective fighter who would do anything to win.


Animated series

Sunstreaker appeared frequently in the animated series as one of the Autobots on Earth, saving Trailbreaker from the Seekers in "More Than Meets the Eye", but had very few prominent roles.

Predictably, given his ego, he was one of several Autobots who appeared as "giant evil aliens" in a Hollywood movie ("Hoist goes Hollywood") alongside Hoist and many others, before ending up battling the Decepticons for real.

Sunstreaker appeared in two places at once in the Transformers movie. Before the Decepticon attack on Autobot City, Sunstreaker was helping Kup move a roadblock. He was knocked over when Hot Rod and Daniel Witwicky drove through it. Meanwhile, he was also on Moon Base One and helped pilot the shuttle that flew Optimus Prime and the Dinobots to Autobot City.

It should be noted that in the IDW Publishing adaption of the Transformers movie they removed Sunstreaker from helping Kup on Earth and only depicted him as being with Prime just after the shuttle landed.

He is one of the few original Autobots to have apparently survived the attack on Autobot City. He unlike his twin Sideswipe had a brief appearance in the movie as the pilot of the shuttle carrying the detachment of Autobot reinforcements to earth. This was his last appearance in the series.

Marvel Comics

Sunstreaker was among the original Autobots in the first miniseries. He was revived along with the other members of Optimus Prime's crew on Earth and took part in the first major battle with the Decepticons at the Witwickys' garage alongside Sideswipe. He was not mentioned as being among the Autobots Optimus Prime chose to keep active with their limited fuel reserves to fight off a Decepticon attack, but was shown to be present during the battle anyway, standing with the others after all the Decepticons collapsed from poisoned fuel. However, moments later, the small band of Autobots were all gunned down by a newly arrived Shockwave.

Early in the subsequent story arc, Sunstreaker's deactivated form was blasted again by Shockwave, damaging him further. As a result, Ratchet was unable to bring him back online with the others. Aside from a cameo in the UK-exclusive story "Crisis of Command", which is generally assumed to be a mistake, he was not seen again until Issue #41, when Grimlock arranged to bring all of the Earth Autobots back online to witness his duel with Blaster on the moon's surface. Sunstreaker was presumably deactivated again during the attack by Ratbat's Decepticons that followed.

Sunstreaker was next seen in Issue #75 as one of the reinforcements Grimlock brought to the battle with Unicron after reviving them with nucleon. He survived the battle and was seen attending the subsequent meeting of the Autobot/Decepticon alliance to discuss evacuating Cybertron. He was among those deactivated in the battle with Bludgeon's Decepticons on Klo in the last issue, but presumably revived by the Last Autobot.

In Marvel UK's Earthforce storyline, Sunstreaker was among a number of Autobots revived by Galvatron, who attempted to brainwash them by forcing them to remember the darker moments of their past: In Sunstreaker's case, an incident in the early days of the war on Earth where he and Jazz were running surveillance on the Decepticons and he not only abandoned Jazz during an attack by Skywarp and Thundercracker but also arranged a battle between the two Decepticons and the human military rather than risk damage. Sunstreaker and the others resisted Galvatron's efforts and went on to join Grimlock's Autobot Earthforce.

Sunstreaker appeared prominently in "Life in the Slow Lane", where he and Jazz stumbled upon the Stunticons and Battlechargers fighting over the contents of Megatron's ozone-altering satellite only for Prowl to reveal he had already emptied it, and "The Bad Guys' Ball", where he was among the Autobots who disrupted summit talks between Megatron and Shockwave's Decepticon factions. In the final story, "End of the Road", he was part of the convoy of Autobots who pursued the Stunticons after they abducted journalist Irwin Spoon. He was the last of the group to be taken out when he drove into Motormaster's trailer, leaving Bumblebee and Tracks to complete the mission.
