Boomer is a Nebulan in the Generation One continuity family
Boomer dt

Dumb with a gun

Boomer, a "double" Targetmaster is partnered with Ricochet and the Autobot Quickmix.

His friends tell him "Ignorance is bliss." He doesn't get it, and even if he did Boomer isn't one to take offense, because that's just the kinda guy he is. As the head of the Consumer Complaint Agency on Nebulos he dealt with thousands of angry citizens all day. Boomer's trademark brand of loud, infectious good-hearted enthusiasm was his only marketable skill. Boomer thought that in comparison fighting Decepticons should be easy, so he joined the Autobots.

Boomer was bio-engineered to turn into a sonic pulse cannon, which generates sound-waves or different intensities and frequencies that can be used for either the gentlest effect, or to shatter steel. As a "double" Targetmaster, Boomer is able to combine with Ricochet to increase the power of his own weapon, or boost the power of Ricochet's submachine gun.

Boomer frequently has to soothe the impatient Quickmix or cheer up his depressive partner Ricochet. Fortunately, he doesn't mind.

When Galvatron attacked some months later, Boomer, Ricochet and the other Nebulan "double" Targetmasters were absent while their Autobot partners fought Galvatron.
