TRYPTICON 2.0 - STORMBRINGER II EVOLUTION
Art by Simon
Concepts and coordination by Franco Villa NOTES
As recapped and/or chronicled in Metroplex: A Tale of Two City-Bots
, Trypticon was developed in The War Within vol. 1
and first deployed in The War Within vol. 2: The Dark Ages
He later fought Thunderwing (alongside Omega Supreme) in Stormbringer
Ultimately defeated by Metroplex in the aforementioned SoD: Metroplex
, Trypticon is currently recovering in his space station mode, although the Decepticons don't seem particularly interested in bringing him back into action, maybe because that would force the Autobots to deploy Metroplex once again, with undesirable consequences for both sides-- as a Trypticon/Metroplex usually leaves the targeted planet so shattered that it can't even be stripped of its raw resources.
Being one of the few (if not the only one) Cybertronian who survived the "Trinary Spark" enhancement process, Trypticon is bound to draw the attention of Galvatron, sooner or later.
After his return, chronicled in Stormbringer II
, Galvatron starts enlisting Decepticon warriors for his own private army (starting with the Monstructor Six and Sixshot): in order to salvage a certain planetary item that was stolen from Cybertron by the Quintessons, and hidden on a planet that is well known to Wheelie, Galvatron will probably have to resort to Trypticon's might... even if this means seizing the most defended Decepticon space station in the galaxy, and finding the resources to reformat it!
