FIRST APPEARANCE: TRANSFORMERS # 4
no need for friends, even less for enemies."
Maybe Slag enjoys his job too much - after all, a
more sensitive Autobot might regret the waste involved in
reducing an enemy to a smoldering pool of liquid metal.
Not Slag. If his metal hide could take the heat, Slag
would swim in the puddle to celebrate. Perhaps even more
than his Dinobot brethren, Slag resents the authority of Optimus
Prime, and he's
not too keen on the other Autobots either. He's generally
considered a disruptive force and has been known to get
into brawls and turn his fiery breath against his
comrades. Nasty and mean-spirited are perhaps the nicest
things one can say about him.
In Dinobot mode, Slag can spew from his mouth a bolt of
3,000 degrees Centigrade flame up to 80 feet. He
possesses enormous strength and can shatter a brick
building with a single blow from his armored head. In
Autobot mode he carries a high-energy laser rifle.
Slag is his own worst enemy. His misanthropic personality
often persuades some of the other Autobots not to help
him when he's in trouble. He's rash and not too bright,
qualities which often put him in dangerous predicaments.
