Waverider (Pretender):

Profile, Abilities and Weaknesses description is from The Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye, comic series published by Dreamwave Comics in 2003.

BIO: Traveling the seas provides Waverider with the sense of freedom he needs to reconciler his peaceful nature with his life as a warrior. Waverider wants to understand himself and his place in the universe, and he's fascinated by metaphysical theories-which he tries to apply to the problems of his friends, often unsuccessfully. Thoughtful and spiritual, he prefers to talk things out and is always ready to lend a helping hand to someone in need. The problem is that Waverider sometimes wants to help too much, even when someone plainly doesn't want to talk about a problem! Most don't hold it against him; they understand that Waverider is a caring and honestly concerned Autobot. He entertains himself with the true-to-life "out-of-body" experience he gets when working alongside his shell. Despite his peaceful beliefs, Waverider knows he has a job to do and believes deeply in his cause, making him a grimly determined warrior when the situation warrants. WEAKNESSES: Subject's shell is designed for underwater operations; it takes time for it to lose its "sea legs" and readjust to land-based functions.
