The Decepticons then stole the entirety of the Autobots’ fuel supply and attacked them once more.
But Optimus, having anticipated a trick on the Decepticons’ part, arrived at the battlefield with a new supply of fuel for his troops.
After damaging Slag, Starscream and the rest of the Decepticons broke off their attack.
Starscream and the other Decepticon jets took part in a series of hit-and-run attacks on Autobot superjet forces around the Pacific Rim to draw attention away from their operations on the island of Buru.
Despite his constant failures, Starscream believes it is only a matter of time before he prevails—his destiny is inevitable. Why, of all the Decepticons, did I decide to revitalize the one whose record of deceit and betrayal is legend? Formally the political figurehead of the city-state of Vos, Starscream sat ill in his position in the Decepticon ranks, but never posed a real threat to Megatron in their early days, delivering only the occasional snipe or criticism that the Decepticon leader would be quick to put down with a show of force.
Starscream's never-give-up attitude extends even to the afterlife: unlike most Transformers, he has a mutant, indestructible spark. Deactivated following a battle with Omega Supreme, Starscream spent several years in stasis, but once reactivated, he quickly ingratiated himself with the new Decepticon leader Ratbat and through information gained from him was able to obtain the cosmic power of the Underbase.
Starscream participated in a Decepticon assault on the Autobots, only to be once more beaten back.
Under Megatron’s orders, the Decepticons then lay low for several days, lulling the Autobots into a false sense of security.
In fact, it was Starscream's refusal to listen to Megatron that kept the war going, when a petty parting blast that he delivered to the Autobot's crashed starship jostled the body of Optimus Prime into the path of Teletraan I's restoration beam.Starscream is the treacherous Decepticon Air Commander and the deadliest of the Seekers.The self-proclaimed pride of the Cybertron War Academy, he's famous not only for his incredible skill, but also for his limitless (and troublesome) ambition.His life-force cannot be destroyed and can persist even without a body to contain it. After going on a legendary rampage across Earth and slaying dozens of Transformers, Starscream himself was destroyed by the Underbase's unstoppable energies, but his corpse was recovered and brought back to life by Megatron as a mindless Pretender.However, there is no indication that Starscream (or anybody else) was aware of this fact prior to his destruction. Regaining his faculties thanks to Ratchet's sabotage, Starscream joined Scorponok's Decepticon cell on Earth, but his new powers led him to be feared and hated by his fellow Decepticons, even more than usual, and he proceeded to break away and help Shockwave start a Decepticon Civil War.
