Black Convoy was originally part of a crew of Cybertrons sent to Earth to find Brave Maximus. Their ship crashed and decades later the crew was recovered and reprogrammed by Gigatron into the Combatrons. At first, Black Convoy served Gigatron loyally, much to the chagrin of Gelshark whom Black Convoy was over-shadowing. Eventually Black Convoy revealed his true colors by trying to take command of the Destrongers, but was re-programmed by Devil Gigatron and served loyally until his master was defeated. Black Convoy was taken prisoner with the rest of the Destrongers.
