Fiction[edit | edit source]
Challenge of the GoBots cartoon[edit | edit source]
The Guardians received warning of a Renegade attack on Washington but it was just a ruse to draw Leader-1 out - while he was scanning the city he was surprised by a robot duplicate of himself, which shot him down and allowed Crasher, Cop-Tur and Dr. Go to fit him with a neural lock, with the double taking his place. It was later one of the cities devastated by the rogue robot Sentinel, egged on by Cy-Kill. Presumably not too much, though, as it looked in good repair when it was targeted by the Renegades and their human ally Murchison. Equipped with forcefields the marched on the city together with an army of criminal thugs. The Guardians and a large UNECOM force led by General Newcastle tried to stop them but as the forcefield rendered the villains invulnerable, and they were trampled. Murchison then overthrew the President. However, Flip Top, A.J. Foster and Nick Burns remained in commission and were able to free Matt Hunter. They were able to destroy the shield generator, allowing a fightback. The Guardians and the human military soon retook Washington.
