It's not been easy being a Decepticon lately. Ever since the rebirth of Cybertron, the Autobots have held the upper hand, but as far as Steeljaw is concerned, that is about to change. Since the prison ship Alchemor crashed on Earth and freed him from stasis, Steeljaw's found a new opportunity to make the Autobots pay for his years of incarceration. And lo and behold, he's got plenty of freed Decepticon convicts to choose from, giving him the power to build up an army capable of taking on Bumblebee and his ragtag bunch of misfits. He's got the charisma and leadership abilities to sway them over to his side, and who says his plans have to stop on Earth?
