Could someone replace the caption underneath Depth charge's pic? It really isn't that funny at all. I don't care what it is changed to but right now it is pretty lame

And why not?
 
   
*It's a running gag in Walky's "Shortpacked" webcomic, which is popular amongst the Transformer fandom. In regards to the caption, I think it's more a battle of wills at this point, personally. --[[User:DrSpengler|DrSpengler]] 18:06, 25 November 2006 (UTC)

*I put up a pic of dpeth charge as a CGI model. Feel free to change the caption below. However I would like to keep the picture as is because people should be able to see him as he was in Beast wars. Also the previous picture is still their near the comics section so I don't see why anyone should complain.--[[User:Shadowscribe]] 13:33, 25 November 2006 (UTC)

Depth Charge was a security officer on Colony Omicron when Protoform X broke free and went on a rampage. As the colony's sole survivor, Depth Charge made hunting down "X" his only mission in life. Pursuing Protoform X to places throughout the Universe (including Starbase Rugby) Depth Charge successfully captured Protoform X, and turned him over to the Maximal Elders. The Elders decided that Protoform X should be placed in stasis aboard the Axalon and dumped on an uninhabited world.

Knowing that "Primal would screw it up", Depth Charge continued to monitor the Universe for any trace of Protoform X. The sensors on his Starhopper picked up traces of Protoform X just as he was pulled through a temporal anomaly. The resulting crash left him on prehistoric Earth with a transmetal Manta Ray body, and put him right in the middle of the Beast Wars.

Depth Charge became a wild card for the Maximals. They never knew if he could be counted on, as his pursuit of Rampage always took precedent. Throughout the entire third season of beast wars he tracked Rampage's spark (And Dinbot 2's later on, though this was not completely intentional)through the use of his cybershark drone. This hunt of rampage however usually ended up getting the maximals in trouble. An Example is the case of the episode changing of the guard (where his refusal to directly join in the capture of sentinal resulted in its loss).

However Depth charge would comply with the maximals from time to time. When Depth charge was called forth to stop Megatron from launching the nemesis he followed the order, for even he knew how important it was to stop Megatron. Ironically it was Rampage who found depth charge on this mission forcing him into a battle. The struggle continued which was intensified by the existence of some convienently placed energon crystals which were scattered all over the battlefield. As depth charge grabbed a crystal and forced it into rampage's spark he uttered his final words-

Raw energon! Right through your twisted spark! Take it! Take it straight to the Pit, you stinking piece of slag!"

Eventually rampage stopped struggling and simply began to laugh maniacally as depth charge shoved the energon through his spark. It resulted in a hugh explosion which destroyed both Depth Charge and Rampage. Depth charge had finally suceeded in destroying Rampage, but failed to stop the nemesis.
