Slomo

In terms of fashion, this is the Ying to Prometheus Black's Yang

Slo-Mo is a human from the Transformers Animated continuity family.

Working a nine-to-five job as a wage slave sure sucks. Which means that when you discover a fragment of an ancient life-giving alien artifact, it's time to clock out for the last time and launch a career as a super-villain! No? Well, Slo-Mo seems to think so.

This dishy dame's timepiece has the power to slow down machines, even stop 'em cold. In their tracks. Company halt. It even works on those annoying Autobots!

Amusingly enough, she seems to have a mutual attraction with the speedster Nanosec.

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details for SUV: Society of Ultimate Villainy follow.


Slo-Mo first appeared on the scene as a mysterious benefactor who helped out several of Detroit's B-List Villains, saving them from capture by the Autobots with an Allspark-empowered timepiece. Gathering these three 'also-rans' at her former place of employment she introduced herself. Formerly a carbon blob from Sector 7G a production line worker, she one day discovered what would prove to be an AllSpark fragment mixed into the quartz crystals she fitted into clocks. When installed in a clock-like housing she found it slowed down all electronic and mechanical systems, from automobiles to automatons to Autobots. She realized this was a chance to make it big she set out on a career in crime, but had the sense to recognize she was an amateur at the game, and proposed that the gathered crooks could restyle themselves as a crime syndicate. She also revealed that it was her AllSpark-powered timepiece that had undone Nino Sexton's premature aging, and this favor seemed to kindle a potential relationship between the two.

The as yet unnamed syndicate's first bust quickly went south on them however when they became cornered not only by the Autobot Bumblebee (who was quickly defeated by Slo-Mo's timepiece) but also by the flesh-and-blood officers of the DPD. Fortunately, a disembodied voice quickly offered them the services of a nearby Sports Utility Vehicle as a getaway car, complete with 4-wheel-drive, inbuilt weaponry, and comfortable seating for four (complete with a booster-seat for Professor Princess).
