Transformers: Generation 1
Flash is a member of the Autobot Turbomasters.
Fastest and most ambitious of the Turbomasters; a flashy, streamlined dare-devil. The group tolerates his stunts because they usually pay off in the end. Uses super speed and maneuverability to get out of tight corners. As a vehicle, central elevating turbine brings high flying targets within range. As robot, wades in with massive turbo defense power.
Flash appeared in the Dreamwave Productions adaptation of the original Transformers. During the Decepticon conquest of Cybertron by Megatron, the Turbomasters evaded capture and became part of the Autobot underground resistance. They were assigned by Perceptor to monitor the "Think Tank", a device designed to help locate Optimus Prime. At one point Perceptor had left them alone, and the Turbomasters partook in a game of cat and mouse, which resulted in Flash accidentally driving into the Think Tank and being transported to the alien world of Quintessa, home of the Quintessons. Dreamwave Productions went bankrupt before the story arc could be fully published.
As part of Fun Publication's "Generartion 2 Redux" story, the Turbomasters Hurricane, Scorch, Flash and Boss were clearing out Decepticon nests across the galaxy, prior to the rise of the second generation of Transformers on Earth.
