Magnus is no slouch when it comes to combat, either. When he needs to enter the fray, the Magnus Hammer—his symbol of office—can call down devastating lightning from the sky.
Commander of the Cybertron Elite Guard, Ultra Magnus is the most powerful Autobot warrior in the galaxy. He has trained for hundreds of years in all forms of fighting known on Cybertron, and several other planets. No Autobot is more courageous, or more dedicated to the protection of life and freedom. He is a master tactician who has never been beaten on the battlefield, and was instrumental in driving the Decepticons from Cybertron and into deep space.
- Carries several experimental weapons.
- Mass-hammer also controls local weather.
- Even older than Ratchet.
Ultra Magnus is wise, heroic, benevolent, honourable, powerful, and utterly committed to keeping the peace of Cybertron at any cost. A veteran of the Great War, Magnus is exceptionally straightforward in his dealings on every level. He makes no bones about some of the questionable projects he's enacted in order to counter the threat of the more heavily-armed Decepticons, and doles out both praise and admonishments to his subordinates without hesitation. He also has a sense of humour which is often shown around the younger members such as Sari and the Teen Titans.

Weapons & AbilitesEdit
Ultra Magnus' hammer, the Magnus Hammer, which he is never seen without, can cause storms and summon down lightning bolts from the sky which Ultra Magnus can direct against his enemies. He also wields shoulder-mounted rocket-launchers, a right forearm-mounted energon-sword, a left forearm-mounted plasma-chaingun, a hand-held particle-rifle, and a hand-held energon-sickle.
In boot camp, Impactor gave Ultra his name. 12 million stellar cycles (years) ago, as the Decepticons began to rally around the insurgent named Cryotek and his pupil Megatron (who was his gladiatorial oartner), Ultra Prime was sworn in as Magnus in replacement of Convoy Magnus. Ultra Magnus immediately passed the Decepticon Registration Act, and two million stellar cycles later, an Outbreak War riot had begun. First there was an attack on Cybertron itself by the Decepticons, and then one by one, the other planets in the Commonwealth fell to the Decepticons.
The Decepticons continued dealing the Autobots defeats. After the experimental Cosmic Rust toxin made a battle for the Hydrax Plateau particularly costly, putting the Autobots in a sinkhole of morale, Ultra Magnus did his best to rally the troops behind him once more. The tide began to turn when both sides discovered that a certain Prime during the Great War era had made the drastic decision to hide the AllSpark from both Autobot and Decepticon by launching it into the cosmos a long time ago. After this, the outbreak began to cool down since than.
The Autobot ninja Dai Atlas would end up as Ultra Magnus' right hand, acting as general of all ground forces and the Elite Guard under his orders.
Towards the end of the outbreak in the Battle for Iacon, an Autobot intelligence agent named Arcee was in danger of falling into Decepticon hands. Ultra Magnus sent Ratchet to recover her so the access codes she held in her data banks couldn't be used to deal a devastating blow to the Autobots. He specifically ordered Ratchet to bring Arcee back in one piece, but due to a run-in with Lockdown, her memory was erased by Ratchet's EMP generator.
Desperate for the access codes she'd been carrying, Magnus had Ratchet perform open-processor surgery on her. When Ratchet's proximity triggered a failsafe data transfer, Magnus assigned the medic to take her place as the activator/mentor to the Autobots' ultimate weapon: Omega Supreme.
Omega Supreme was just the first of Ultra Magnus's Project Omega, and the fleet of Omega Sentinels was instrumental to helping end the war. Finally, with the Autobots won and Cryotex was arrested by the other Elite Guard members after Megatron double crossed him, the Decepticons were defeated and fled into space under the new command of Megatron (after he stolen a certain relic device from the Stellar Galleries). Ultra Magnus declared the Decepticons to be stayed in exile.
Long after the end of the war, Ultra Magnus took a strong interest in Cadet Optimus, noting his combat simulator scores were higher than anyone else had ever managed. He had high hopes, believing Optimus could even become a Magnus, but then Optimus, Cadet Sentinel, and Cadet Elita-1 took an unauthorised trip to an organic planet. Elita-1 was MIA, Sentinel blamed Optimus for the loss, and Optimus blamed and upset with himself for the screw-up. He requested Ultra Magnus that he would be stripped from the Autobot Academy and be ineligible for service in the Cybertron Elite Guard. Ultra Magnus himself however, was still impressed by Optimus' service, he had him bumped up to Prime rank and given a ship to command and would be given the chance to rejoin the Elite Guard when a certain day or time comes. He also showed a strong interest in Sari and the Teen Titans, and acted as a mentor to them from time to time.
