Fictional biography

Biography: lcepick is one of the most cheerful Decepticons -he truly loves his job and believes in its purpose. He immediately latched onto the Decepticon ideals of replacing the old and weak with the strong, and signed up for demolitions. With all of the fervor and ideological zeal of a propaganda ad, Icepick will gladly explain that it only makes sense to recycle the battered buildings of today into the technological marvels of a brave new Decepticon future. His efforts to convert others to the Decepticon cause have met with very limited success, but the upper echelon of Decepticon command appreciates his ceaseless efforts on their behalf, no matter how misguided.

Weapons/abilities: Subject possesses great strength and endurance, and above-average intelligence. His outer Pretender shell [See Pretenders] is so heavily armored that, in theoretical testing, no non-nuclear explosion was powerful enough to damage it. His claws can rend metal and crush concrete with almost no effort. In creature mode, Subject can leap a distance of 1.8 miles at a time. As a robot, he's armed with a fireball bazooka. Combines with fellow Pretender Monsters to form Monstructor.

Weaknesses: Although he believes in what he preaches, Subject is not convinced of some of the more ruthless Decepticon tactics, especially when they involve unsuspecting victims. His outer shell is very slow.
