Profile[edit source]

Hot Rod is an eternally teenaged rebel whose emotional tendencies and 'act now, think later' philosophy on life has given him an unprecedented reputation as a troublemaker. A 'maverick by default' as Prowl puts it so keenly, Hot Rod regularly sets himself apart from the crowd by constantly challenging authority with his radical ideas and demands for reasons behind rules. Though his ego often gets in the way of his good intentions, Hot Rod is an individual who earnestly seeks the benefit of others before his own.
