Renegade Rhetoric[edit]

When Cy-Kill ran for President of the United States, Slicks took to the racing circuit of Indianapolis to drum up support. Cy-Kill For President

In an alternate timeline, Renegades ruled GoBotron after Cy-Kill removed Leader-1 from history before he could assume command of the Guardians. A group of rebels stowed away on a Thruster from Earth to GoBotron. Slicks nearly discovered them, but the Guardian slave Guide Star made a commotion that distracted him. Renegade Victory, Part 1

Slicks was one of the Renegades summoned to the Arena of Strife by Guerr-O-Vac. He successfully battled Van Guard in the Arena, defeating his Guardian opponent and bringing the Renegades closer to victory. GoBot Arena

The Renegades attempted to steal an electronic growth serum from Cambridge University to further Cy-Kill's plans. Slicks and Klaws were summoned via Astro-Beam when Scooter tried to escape with the serum, but the little Guardian accidentally spilled in on himself. Attack of the 50 Foot Guardian

"Echoes and Fragments"[edit]

The barely-visible leg behind Fracture.

For their own amusement, Sideways and Gong played with reality so that elements of a Gargent stream blended in and out of a Primax stream.

After the first reality-shift, Slicks and the Renegades assaulted a Command Center on its way to Autobot City on Earth. When the crew was disabled Slicks, Cop-Tur, Crasher, and Psycho assumed the controls.

Several shifts later, Slicks was among the injured Renegades and Decepticons fleeing the Battle of Autobot City aboard Astrotrain with their weakened leader, Megatron. On their way back to Cybertron, Zero used a thin pretext to toss Megatron, Slicks, and the other injured soldiers out into space. They were found by Unicron, who recruited Megatron to be his servant in exchange for reformatting the villain and his troops into new bodies. Crasher became the warrior known as Fracture, while Slicks became her similar-bodied "armada" of one. Echoes and Fragments
