Explanation of the conversion: I decided to make Peacemaker a follower of Pointblank. He has an attack which is useable by one other, which is how Pointblank uses him as a gun.
History (Marvel comics): Pointblank was among the Autobots who joined Fortress Maximus in leaving Cybertron for
the planet Nebulos. Pointblank was among the Autobots who gave up their weapons to the Nebulans in hopes of showing
their peaceful intentions (Transformers: Headmasters #1).
In order to bolster the Autobots and their Nebulan allies against Scorponok and his Decepticons, the Nebulans used the
Autobot weapons to create cyborgs who could transform into the weapons of the Autobots. Branded outlaws by Nebulan
authorities, these cyborgs were given code names to hide their identities. Followed to Nebulos by the Decepticons under
Scorponok, Fortress Maximus' band left Nebulos for the planet Earth (Transformers: Headmasters #4).
Pointblank was present when Grimlock fought Blaster for leadership
of the Autobots on Earth's moon. The Autobots were then attacked by the Decepticons lead by Ratbat (Transformers #41).
Pointblank knows the horrors of war all too well. He's fought in one for millions of years. Whatever romance or glory it
once held for him has long since vanished... as has the cheerful adventurer he once was. Today, Pointblank is a somber,
no-nonsense soldier whose every utterance creaks with weariness. He joined Fortress Maximus's recent expedition to the
planet Nebulos hoping to find peace. Instead, the war followed him and his fellow Autobots to their sanctuary. Pointblank
came to the bitter realization that he could not hope to escape the war, he could only help to end it. Now he fights on,
more determined than ever to defeat the Decepticons... and more convinced that an end to the war is nowhere in sight, but
he's fairly quiet about his pessimistic outlook. "Words are what got us into this mess in the first place," he
grumbles. "They do more harm than weapons." Pointblank's disposition improved a bit when he was paired with Peacemaker, a Nebulan law enforcement officer whose optimistic attitude is almost contagious,
but so far Pointblank has displayed immunity to the Nebulan's best efforts to cheer him. Pointblank appreciates the
attempt, but disapproves of the source. Although he understands the reasons behind the Autobot-Nebulan alliance, he does
not accept them. The thought of spreading the war to another planet and people is anathema to the dour Autobot.
Powers: Pointblank is nearly fearless. He can transform into a rocket-powered ground vehicle, with a maximum speed
of 320 mph and a range of 800 miles. In both robot and vehicle modes, Pointblank can wield weapon mode Peacemaker.
Weaknesses: Pointblank is prone to tire blow outs at high speeds in vehicle mode. Without Peacemaker
he lacks ranged attacks. In weapon mode, Peacemaker
sometimes comes loose from his moorings on vehicle mode Pointblank.
