Whisper is currently the leader of the Air Strike Patrol, a position he holds by being braver than Nightflight, smarter than Storm Cloud, and bolder than Tailwind. In fact, if he wasn't completely despicable, he'd probably make a good Autobot. Pity the position's taken.[1]


Marvel comics continuity

Note: Events from the UK-only comic stories are in italics.

Whisper and his patrolmates were the first Decepticon Micromasters to be created. Roadhandler was able to trick the Patrol into fleeing with the aid of the deactivated bomb. A Small War!

"We'll totally blend in to Earth this way!"

When Roadhandler became an overnight wrestling sensation on Earth, Scorponok called in help to end the Autobot's growing public adulation, and an unknown Decepticon sent the Air Strike Patrol. Whisper got to threaten physical harm against small children to force Roadhandler to take a dive against Storm Cloud. [2] The Interplanetary Wrestling Championship!

Unknown to Scorponok, the patrol's secret employer was Megatron, who then sent the team on a mission to MacDill Air Force Base to capture the B-204 refueling plane. When the Autobots inevitably arrived, the team contacted Scorponok to tell him that they were under attack. Back From the Dead After a brief confrontation with Optimus Prime and the arrival of Scorponok's Decepticons, the Air Strike Patrol fled, their mission completed. The Resurrection Gambit!

They appear to have gone AWOL from the Decepticons after this, as Whisper was next seen as a private assassin with an open-ended contract to kill key Autobots. This in turn made Whisper a target of the Autobot Rescue Patrol, who damaged his wings and chased him into an Earthen forest. His patrolmates came to his aid, and the Rescue Patrol were called back by Optimus to stop the forest being destroyed. The Greatest Gift Of All!

Whisper led his team across the southern United States, finally attacking an oil refinery. This was the same oil refinery where Hector Dialonzo, a human with extraordinary powers, was working, and he single-handedly destroyed the Air Strike Patrol. The Human Factor!

Marvel UK future timelines

In an alternate timeline, the Air Strike Patrol took Megatron's side in a Decepticon Civil War against factions led by Scorponok and Shockwave. They had a chance to kill a beaten Scorponok in 1991 but were stopped by the Autobots, as their battle was destroying a human city. Aspects of Evil!

IDW comics continuity

Whisper was one of the legions of Dead Universe Micromasters who pursued Hardhead and Nightbeat on Gorlam Prime. He survived to confront Hardhead with the Jhiaxus-controlled Nightbeat in the planet's subterranean tunnels, but failed to prevent the Autobot from escaping into the Dead Universe. Spotlight: Hardhead


Generation One

  • Air Strike Patrol (Micromaster Patrol, 1989)
Whisper transforms into a black Stealth fighter jet loosely based on the apocryphal "F-19" design. He was available only as part of a 4-bot Patrol with his teammates Nightflight, Storm Cloud, and Tailwind.
This toy was sold in Japan without changes as the Autobot Whisper from Zone. It was redecoed to make Groundshaker.

  2. Oddly, when fans suggest the Decepticons are the real good guys, they never mention this story.
