Autobot commander assigned to lead the troops at Autobot City (Cybertron City). An old friend of Optimus Prime (Convoy), he was given the Autobot Matrix of Leadership (Cybertron Matrix of Leadership) after his death in 2005. His tenure as Autobot leader was short, however, as the Matrix was already destined for Hot Rod (Hot Rodimus)- when he tried to use it on Junk, Galvatron had his Sweeps dismember him. Although the Matrix was taken by Galvatron, Magnus was rebuilt by the Junkions, and participated in the attack on Unicron.
After the rise of Rodimus Prime (Rodimus Convoy), Magnus became his second-in-command and advisor. He also forged a sort-of respect between himself and Cyclonus, Galvatron's second, during an incident where they were kidnapped by a Quintesson scientist.
Prior to commanding Cybertron City, Ultra Magnus was placed in command of the project that created Metroflex. In 2011, he found himself facing the Destron warrior Sixshot on several occasions. Eventually, he died in a final conflict with him.
Autobot commander and leader of the Wreckers. Ultra Magnus spent some time on Earth, battling the time-travelling Decepticon leader Galvatron on several occasions. By 2006, Magnus had been assigned to lead the troops at Autobot City. He was given the Creation Matrix by Optimus Prime, but only held it for a short time before it was taken from him by Galvatron, who destroyed him in the process. Magnus was rebuilt by the Junkions, and participated in the attack on Unicron. After the rise of Rodimus Prime, Magnus became his second-in-command and advisor.
A courageous Autobot and "brother" to Optimus Prime. Since he was identical to Prime in appearance- save for a white color scheme- he took to wearing an extra layer of armor that transformed into his trailer in truck mode. Magnus eventually unified the Autobots under his leadership following the "Dark Ages" after the disappearance of Optimus Prime and Megatron. With the support of Grimlock, he was on the verge of negotiating a ceasefire with the leading Decepticon factions- until Megatron returned, enslaving the Autobots.
After the Autobots were freed, Magnus became co-commander with Fortress Maximus after Optimus Prime and Megatron's second disappearance four million years ago. When Maximus left Cybertron, he became full commander, until the Great Shutdown occurred. After being reactivated by Shockwave, he was persuaded that the Autobots and Decepticons should unite to prevent such a cataclysm happening again. However, Magnus began to have doubts about Shockwave's plans, especially after being sent to capture the Autobots and Decepticons on Earth, then being commanded to execute the Autobots. He eventually sided against Shockwave when he discovered him stealing the Matrix from Optimus Prime, and together the brothers managed to defeat him.
