The Wreckers INFO: The Wreckers are a sub-team of Autobots in the fictional Transformers universe, functioning essentially as a commando unit. They are not derived from the Transformers toyline but rather are the creation of Marvel UK writer Simon Furman, who introduces the Wreckers in the story arc Target:2006. They also appear in many of Furman’s subsequent stories, with an ever shifting roster, as well as in many other Marvel stories, in Dreamwave’s War Within: The Dark Ages, and in IDW’s Stormbringer.
