Mudslinger is not an "ultimate force of evil." In fact he was the sort of robot who might have gone over to either side in the war. Perhaps if things had gone differently he'd be an Autobot now, but the choice was made long ago, and he's not one to second guess. Mudslinger lives for action. He has no patience for contemplation or compromise. And peace is just as dull and beneath him. He has decided that the Autobot interest in these things is pathetic, mincing weakness. Now, with his new drone troops, he has the power to show them just how tough he is.
