Reception

Fictional biography

Quakeblast's characterization in the animated series is based on an early profile written for the character which presented him to be the guardian of Iron base, with no desires beyond that station. His toy's tech spec and universe profile, however, wrote of a character who sought to overthrow king because he views it as the logical thing to do. This was the version of the character who impressed fans with his appearance in comic book series. Also, unlike his cartoon incarnation, in which he was depicted as an easily beatable foe, his (sic) was very powerful.
