Fictional biography

After eons of fighting on the front line AFTERSHOCK is tired of being passed over for promotion. His superiors believe his recklessness and veracity on the battlefield are due to low intelligence while in facts AFTERSHOCK is just taking out his frustrations on his enemies, often imagining LEADLOBBER's stupid grin on his opponents faceplate. Enhanced traction systems allow AFTERSHOCK to climb vertical surfaces. Known for using whatever methods necessary to destroy his enemies. Binary bonded with FIREBOX a notorious criminal known for selling "intimate encounters" who transforms into a double photon pistol, and PINNACLE, a failed circus performer who let one too many trapeze artists fall under his watch and transforms into a balance-altering gyroscopic destabilizing weapon. Equipped with plasma cannon in tank mode.
