Quote: "Careful what you touch- you might get burned."
Originally formatted for patrolling the desert Southwest, SUNBEAM has unfortunately been reassigned to the upper Midwest. He is miserable. Instead of cruising his flashy car mode down the Vegas strip in balmy, agreeable weather conditions, he is now forced to operate in hot, sticky, high humidity or bitter cold. He has to put up with road salt that continuously eats away at his underbody. Cows don't appreciate him nearly as much as drunk gamblers. His attempts at reassignment have so far been unsuccessful.
SUNBEAM operates best in warm weather conditions. He has the ability to superheat his body to 1,000 degrees C, but this ability is particularly draining. He can shoot concussive laser blasts from his headlights.
Cold weather is not SUNBEAM'S friend. In extreme conditions, his engine block can crack, and his transformation protocols freeze up. He is not built to operate on icy roads, and more often than not ends up stuck in snowdrifts.
