Personal Profile: In 1984, toys like Optimus Prime and Soundwave were considered to be "big" Transformer toys. But in 1985 they were dwarfed by a new series of toys including Shockwave, Devastator, Jetfire and Omega Supreme. In both comic and cartoon continuities Omega Supreme was the first "big" non-gestalt robot to appear. He transformed into a battle station, which included a tank, rocket launcher and base. Omega Supreme didn't talk much, but when he did speak, his voice was loud and filled with authority. All Decepticons fear the wrath of Omega Supreme.

Episodes appeared in:God Gambit, Secret of Omega Supreme, Blaster Blues, Golden Lagoon, Key to Vector Sigma Parts 1 and 2, War Dawn, Kremzeek and Big Broadcast of 2006.

Cartoon Bio: Omega Supreme was originally one of the Guardian Robots of Cybertron. He was most likely built by the Quintessons to make sure that their slaves, the Autobots and Decepticons, stayed in line. He was the last of the Guardians when the Quintessons were driven off of Cybertron. It is most likely that the Decepticons killed the other Guardians. Omega was probably saved by the Autobots and taken to Vector Sigma to receive a personality and mind of his own. In his early days as an Autobot, he was the guardian of Crystal City, one of the most beautiful cities on Cybertron. He was a good friend of the Constructicons. Megatron eventually used a device called the Robo-Smasher to force the Constructicons to do his will. He had them get Omega Supreme to leave his guardian duties at Crystal City, and then while he was gone, they destroyed the city. When Omega returned, he found the city in ruins, and he also found his former friends, who had a new form, called Devastator. Devastator and Omega fought each other, and Devastator tried to use the Robo-Smasher to force Omega into doing Megatron's biding too. Omega Supreme managed to get away from Devastator and destroy the Robo-Smasher. From that day forward, Omega vowed that he would have his vengeance upon Devastator and they became mortal enemies. It is unclear as to what Omega was doing from then until 1985 when he joined Optimus Prime and the other Autobots on Earth. He could have been in deep space, or on Cybertron, but it is certain that he wasn't aboard the Ark, because a transformer of that size wouldn't fit inside the Ark. He made a huge difference in favour of the Autobot cause when he joined them. He was a force to be reckoned with, and all the Decepticons feared him, even Megatron, the Decepticon leader. One of the only Decepticons who had the guts to challenge Omega was Astrotrain. Astrotrain took on the Autobot that was at least five times his size on the moon. Omega defeated Astrotrain, and since then, no Decepticon except Devastator willingly got into a fight with Omega Supreme. Optimus Prime didn't learn about Omega's past with Devastator until he told him about it in 1985. Omega Supreme almost blew an important mission because he wanted to destroy Devastator, but he eventually realized the folly of his blood (oil) lust and completed his mission letting Devastator get away. Omega Supreme and Cosmos were the only two Autobots capable of space travel in 1985, so the Autobots depended on him to get to Cybertron and other planets. He would usually be burned out after a long trip, and after a trip to and from Cybertron Omega Supreme self destructed because of over exhaustion. Luckily he was repaired by Ratchet and Sparkplug, just in time to help the newly made Superion fight the newly made Menasor. After 1985, Omega Supreme stayed with the Autobots, although his involvement was significantly reduced with the addition of Autobots capable of space travel like Skylynx and Broadside, and the addition of Autobot gestalts like Superion, Defensor and Computron. Omega did make one appearance helping Rodimus Prime fight the Quintessons in the year 2006, which means he was around then. It is uncertain what he was doing during the great battle at Autobot City in 2005 and in the Unicron battle, but it is assumed that he was off exploring in deep space at the time.

Comic Biography: Omega Supreme was designed and built by Grapple. He was given life and a personality through the Creation Matrix within the Autobot leader, Optimus Prime. Omega's purpose was to guard the Ark from Decepticon attack when the other Autobots weren't around. Omega was quickly put to the test, because on the same day that he went online, the Autobots left to attack the Decepticon base. While the Autobots were gone, Megatron attacked the Ark with Starscream, Skywarp, Thundercracker, Frenzy, Rumble, Buzzsaw and Laserbeak. The Decepticons didn't know about Omega Supreme when they attacked, and they quickly saw that they had bitten off more then they could chew when they were forced to fight the Autobot giant. Omega made quick work of Skywarp, Thundercracker, Starscream and Buzzsaw. He then took out Rumble and Frenzy. He was about to finish off Megatron as well, but Laserbeak rescued his leader from Omega Supreme and retreated. The six Decepticons that were captured by Omega Supreme were imprisoned offline inside of the Ark. When Optimus Prime was destroyed, Omega Supreme was one of the candidates to take over leadership of the Autobots in his place, but that honour eventually went to Grimlock. Omega Supreme worked for Grimlock, even though he didn't agree with most of the Dinobot's ideals. When Fortress Maximus and Blaster challenged Grimlock's leadership, Omega Supreme acted as the "referee" between the fight for leadership between Blaster and Grimlock. He ended up having to help fend of the Decepticons who attacked the Autobots at that time. Omega Supreme was then sent back to Earth, where he stayed until the Underbase powered Starscream attacked. Omega Supreme was able to hold his ground better than most of the other Transformers that Starscream fought, but Omega didn't have enough power to stop him, and Starscream had a score to settle with Omega, because Omega was the one who initially put him offline. Omega Supreme was knocked offline along with dozens of other Autobots and Decepticons that day. It is uncertain weather or not Nucleon was used to revive him. Most of the Autobots and Decepticons had been revived thanks to Nucleon, but Omega Supreme appears to be one of the few that weren't revived.
