Hot Shot Hot Shot is a young Autobot who rushes into danger without regard to his own safety. But it was that brash attitude that got him sucker punched by SideWays when he was over-confident, despite Scavenger's warnings. Hot Shot scanned a sports car as his alternate form and has Jolt as his Minicon partner. He took over as Autobot Commander when Optimus was destroyed, until the AutoBot leader was resurrected by the Minicons. During the trip to Cybertron, Jolt sacrificed his lifeforce to save Hot Shot, transforming him into his SuperMode.
