Whiplash is a Decepticon in Transformers:Aftermath. He is the leader of the team featured in the story, and is trying to find the All Spark as well. He has a strange fascination with electricity, and most of his weapons utilize it. He has the unquestiong loyalty of Boomer, and most of his team actually don't mind him.
Whiplash and Acid have been rivals for numerous years. After Acid's reassignment, Whiplash was also reassigned. He and his team were told to man a scout ship, the Empire 1. He and his team were patrolling the asteroid belt, when they recieved a signal. It was from Starscream, asking them to verify what appeared to be traces of All Spark energy. Whiplash was skeptical, but he and his team landed on Mars and went protoform, landing on Earth a week later. In Book 1, he scans a Pagani Zonda in a scrapyard. After scanning it, he accidently knocked a pile of other cars on to it, squashing it flat. In Book 2, he first attacks Acid with a laser blast, stalling for Boomer, who is eventually defeated by Fortress. Whiplash then beat a retreat.
Whiplash is very fast, able to achieve supersonic speeds on the ground, though he prefers not to. He is armed with electro-whips, an electro-pulse cannon, and shoulder lasers. He can use these lasers in vehicle mode as well. He can, in vehicle mode, launch afterburner blasts that are extremely hot, able to melt through a tank. He is not very well armored, and suffers damage more easily as a result. His speed allows him to dodge most weapons, however.
Whiplash is mostly electric purple, with neon green flames. He has red eyes.
