Fictional biography

Slam Tank

A little known fact about Slam Tank is that he was a wrestler in the pits in the days before the war. He was unbeaten in unarmed grappling, but with the uprising and the popularity of a certain ruthless combatant, the masses lost interest in unarmed combat. During the war he served as a tank, but he soon grew weary of the senseless killing, and offered himself for an upgrade to rid himself of his warlike tank mode. Something went wrong with his formatting, and he was left with his tank but no robot mode.

Jet Dancer

Jet Dancer changed his name and appearance for a whole new identity after eons of ambulance chasing pre-war. An unpopular individual known to record all he witnessed with his in built camera, he also spent many a spare evening chasing after the hot new celebrities for that elusive reveal-all photo. During the war he refused to use his skills for reconnaissance and he felt his title as a neutral photographer would spare him from violence, but he was soon caught in the cross fire and nearly killed.
