|Specifics: fictional appearances|
Bombshock is old because he's hard. And he's hard because he's fought his way through the biggest, baddest battles of the Cybertronian Civil Wars. Millions of years of unrelenting combat have burned away all traces of mercy, compassion, and idealism, leaving nothing behind but his cold, ruthless core. He leads the Military Patrol well, and he doesn't seem to mind that all three of his teammates are plotting against him. They want a fight, and fighting's all he's good at. And when he gets into the heat of battle, even the destruction of his enemies won't stop him. Sometimes, he won't stop fighting until his bombs have blown most of himself apart.
Dreamwave comics continuity
A highly decorated Decepticon warrior, Bombshock was rebuilt as a Micromaster and took up residence in Little Iacon. He helped train an inter-faction group of young Micromasters, and convinced Barricade to join the Decepticons. Some time later, while arm-wrestling Dropshot and Groundpounder simultaneously (with one arm - and winning!) in a bar, Bombshock witnessed an altercation between the Hot Rod and Race Track Patrols. He then watched a race between Big Daddy and Roadhandler. He accompanied a group of Insecticons back to Decepticon headquarters, where he joined Skystalker's Micromaster insurrection. He helped defend their newly-taken base against a Countdown-led Autobot force, and refused Countdown's offer of an alliance against their larger counterparts.
