Brainstorm is an Autobot in Transformers:Aftermath. He is the second-in-command of Squad I-53, and the only person who Hardhead listens to, though Brainstorm often uses reverse-suggestion to get his advice done. He has a brilliant tactical mind, and is very fast in vehicle mode. He is a friendly enough guy, and is capable of 'dumbing down' his speech to allow even humans to understand his point, unlike Highbrow. He is an engineer, and capable of repairing almost every type of starcraft konwn to Cybertronians. He also created the Mini-Cons Lione and Toraizer.
Brainstorm was a starcraft technician before the war, known for his incredible skill. He maintained this function in the war, and was the resident tech of Freedom 29. When it crashed, Brainstorm was the last to eject, after manually activating the atmospheric buffer so it would survive re-entry. He landed on Earth and scanned an F-16 as an alternate mode. He than linked up with the squad and met the main Autobot group in Salt Lake City.
Brainstorm is able to fly at speeds of Mach 6, and can fly for 8,000 miles before refueling. He is armed with dual photon-pulse cannons, which can blast through most armor with ease. He is also armed with an energy whip and missiles in vehicle mode. When Powerlinxed with his Mini-Cons, he can use their weapons. Brainstorm is exceptionally intelligent, able to outsmart those few opponents he cannot outfight. He is an expert at psycological manipulation, as evidenced by his ability to persuade Hardhead.
Brainstorm is mostly turqoise with grey wings. He has orange eyes.
