Starscream is a Decepticon. He has the ambition to be a leader or to be in power just like Megatron is. A few times Starscream has had power over the Decepticons, but that has only lead to defeat. Everytime he is in power, he also always ends up getting over powered by Megatron.
Starscream is not descreet when it comes to showing his want to be the leader of the Decepticons. Starcsream considers himself more superior to other Decepticons, and because of this, he gets Megatron real impatient and mad which has caused many conflicts that are both verbal and violent. Starscream feels that he should be in charge of the Decepticons instead of Megatron.
Starscream thinks that the way to win battles is by guile and speed, unlike the way Megatron does things with brutal destruction. Megatron often thinks about the ways Starscream can be the threat he thinks he is. When Starscream makes Megatron run out of patience, they have various conflicts which have caused Megatron to treat Starscream in a humiliating dismissive manner. In two occasions, Starscream has been banished to Guadalcanal in the south pacific and to a desolate asteroid in a deep area in space.
Starscream has many powers and abilities. Starscream leads the other Decepticon seeker jets. Since he leads the seeker jets, he serves as the Decepticon air commander. Starscream turns into a F-15 eagle. Many of the seeker jets have the same jet design like the one Starscream has. Starscream is mounted with launchers, which launch cluster bombs. He also has a null ray.
