Enemies flee in terror before the absolutely insane maneuvers he pulls on the battlefield. Whirl was a member of the elite Wreckers unit under the command of Impactor.His extreme maneuverability in helicopter mode lets him spin, bob, weave, dive, and bank like someone totally out of control. Needless to say, Whirl is a rather reckless fighter and can take damage because of it. I've done bad things and I continue to do bad things, because the voice telling me not to...? Alongside Roadbuster, he accompanied his commander as Impactor argued with Xaaron over Ultra Magnus's trip to Earth to investigate the disappearance of Optimus Prime.They succeeded in sending their message to Cybertron, but Kup was captured in the process.
Whirl looked on in horror as their surveillance drones showed a devastated planet, and worse still—Megatron!
Only Macabre went ahead and attempted to assassinate Xaaron, shooting and mortally-wounding Impactor instead.
Whirl and the rest of the Wreckers immediately gunned Macabre down in retaliation.
Taking some downtime, Whirl, Roadbuster, and Twin Twist went to Maccadam's Old Oil House to unwind.
While Roadbuster and Twin Twist were having uneasy feelings about the decision to ditch Volcano, Whirl seemed fine with it, pointing out that it was only logical and no one would say that they were in the wrong.
