Scourge is fearsome, merciless and an implacable hunter. Created from the remains of Thundercracker, he leads "The Sweeps", a wolf pack of tracker-terminators designed to hunt down and eradicate Autobots. Scourge possesses powerful high-tech scanning equipment and a disintegrater ray that can cut through solid rock. In robot mode, he carries a laser blaster that shoots short bursts of intense heat. Scourge's only weakness is his arrogance. As a Targetmaster, he is paired with Fracas, a high-temperature incendiary cannon with a volatile temper to match.
