Like the other Autobots, Omega Prime is an electromechanical entity from Cybertron. While other Autobots possess a continued existence though, Omega Prime only comes into being when Optimus Prime and Ultra Magnus merge, body and soul, to create him.
Cybertronian Physique: like his fellow Autobots, Omega Prime is a robotic entity of Cybertronian origin. As such, this supreme warrior has, by his very nature, the use of a large variety of abilities that reflect this. His very body gives Omega Prime these super human powers:
* Body Armor (s): like most Cybertronians, Omega Prime was built (or formed) with a reinforced steel frame, one that offers him intensity 8 (+2) resistance to injury. This, along with his great Strength, makes him virtually immune to most assault altogether.
* Growth (a): Cybertronians come in all manner of sizes, few of which align with the human norm. Omega Prime, for instance, stands at approximately thirty feet tall in his humanoid mode, which grants him this power at intensity 7 as a general matter of course.
As such, the Autobots' leader has a +7 size factor. This grants him a +7 bonus to damage he inflicts on normal sized foes, while theirs suffers a -7 against him. Conversely, he suffers a -7 penalty to strike standard sized enemies in the first place, while they gain a +7 to hit him.
* Invulnerability to Disease and Toxins (s): like all robots, Omega Prime is highly resistant to diseases and poisons that would kill organic beings. He also possesses intensity 30 (+7) resistance to more chemically creative forms of disease.
* Microscopic + Telescopic Vision (w): all Transformers can alter their visual sensitivity where distance is concerned. Functioning at intensity 2, these powers let them see objects up to a mile distant with ease, as well as allowing them to read items on microfiche.
* Radio Transceiver (i): as are most Transformers on earth, Omega Prime is equipped with an audio / video transmission system. This communications rig allows him instant contact with any other Cybertronian within a wide radius of his person, having intensity 7 range (100 miles).
Flight (a): Omega Prime can utilize Ultra Magnus' rocket boosters whenever he finds the need. This jet pack / flight wing combo allows him to achieve intensity 10 flight - approximately Mach 1 - while careening through the air, whether in battle or not.
Omega Arsenal Blast (i): when all else fails, Omega Prime can unleash all of his weaponry in one fell swoop, firing attacks from eight different locations on his body. This amounts to an intensity 18 energy assault, which he can use once per encounter.
Omega Laser / Gatling Laser (a): enhanced bits of Ultra Magnus' anatomy, these two upgraded weapons from his blue bolts can be fired to inflict +3 damage by Omega Prime, though this damage is raised to +4 if both are fired in conjunction - which can be exceedingly destructive.
Hindrances / Augmentations:
Matrix Blade (s): when super-charged by Fortress Maximus' power, Omega Prime was able to channel an unbelievable amount of energy into the Matrix, which allowed him to call forth the mighty Matrix Blade. This large (50' long) blade is an energy construct of material strength 28.
Of course, it's also incredibly heavy and unwieldy, and requires a Strength of at least 15 to wield. However, it can be used in Omega Prime's hands to inflict his Strength +6 in physical damage, and was in fact the instrument with which the Autobots finally defeated the evil Galvatron!
the Matrix (w): being a combination of the Autobots' two Matrix bearers, Omega Prime can access its power as he sees fit - after all, he used it to craft his Matrix Blade. Of course, he's not usually around long enough to contemplate more extensive uses for the Matrix's power.
However, should he have a need, he can surely use it in a fashion similar to that perpetrated by his two component 'bots in the past, and possibly more. In fact, he may very well be the only incarnation of Optimus Prime and Ultra Magnus that can use the Matrix as has been done in the past.
Reference Optimus Prime's description for more on this vastly powerful device / program.
Advanced Guns (a): supplementing his deceptively impressive dexterity, Omega Prime is a very good marksman, and rarely misses his target. Whenever he's wielding any sort of advanced weaponry, such as his various omega lasers, he may do so at a reduced difficulty level.
Aerial Combat (a): while he is quite the scrapper on the ground, Omega Prime truly excels while fighting in the air - or attacking those on the ground while he's airborne. Whenever he's engaged in combat while in the air, Omega Prime attempts all combat actions at a reduced difficulty.
Boxing (s): when he doesn't bother to blast an opponent into smithereens, Omega Prime can throw down with the best of 'em (say, with his patented 'Omega Fist of Steel'). He can divide his pre-cardplay action score between two attacks, the last of which occurs as a contingent action.
Guns (a): in addition to using high energy weapons, Omega Prime is also well-versed in the use of standard, chemical-propellant slug-throwers. Whenever using such weaponry, whether or not it's integral to his person, Omega Prime does so at a reduced difficulty level.
Leadership 2 (w): more than anything else, Omega Prime is a leader renowned throughout the cosmos - he's pooling the sum of his component Autobots' leadership ability, after all. Omega Prime's direction adds a +2 to the action score of anybody following a plan he has concocted.
Military (w): in addition to his leadership skills, Omega Prime is also a competent soldier with thousands of years of combat experience under his belt. He is a master of battle tactics, and can usually outwit most any foe with a good plan given enough time to conjure one up.
Skill / Swords (s): while he rarely (possibly never) utilized one in the past, Omega Prime demonstrated an impressive amount of skill while wielding his ginormous Matrix Blade. As such, he should receive a one level difficulty reduction when attempting any sword strikes.
As the combination of the Autobots' two greatest warriors and leaders, Omega Prime can naturally rely upon the Autobots should he find himself in any serious trouble. They will go out of their way to protect their beloved boss, and naturally, Omega Prime would do the same for them.
Protector: a perfect combination of the sparks of the two Autobots that comprise his existence, Omega Prime has none of his components' faults - save for a deep compassion for all life. Omega Prime will go to any length necessary to protect innocents from the evils of the cosmos.
The sum of both Optimus' and Magnus' bits, Omega Prime is a mighty spectacle to behold. Colored in the red, white and blue hues of his component Autobots, this veritable work of engineering art is also decked out with chrome and gold trim throughout his massive frame.
A perfect combination of his two component 'bots, Omega Prime is wholly dedicated to the protection of innocents, especially those that have been endangered due to the Cybertronian conflict. A selfless hero, Omega wields his unstoppable power with nothing but goodness in his heart.

As is the case with most other Transformer gestalts, Omega Prime leads a transient existence, only operable when his two component Autobots, Optimus Prime and Ultra Magnus, merge their bodies and minds together. And it so happens that the two aren't on the greatest of terms.
The first time Omega Prime appeared, it was as the result of a gambit Ultra Magnus used to seize Optimus Prime's power - and the Matrix itself. However, he quickly found out that the power of Omega Prime was only available when the two brothers were working together in concert.
Once Optimus managed to illustrate this point to his brother, Omega Prime roared into battle. Wholly unprepared for this new threat to their evil schemes, the Decepticons trying to kill Optimus at the time were quickly been driven off, and Omega Prime reverted to his component bits.
After this initial merger, Optimus Prime and Ultra Magnus merged on several additional occasions, mostly when the threat Megatron posed grew too great for each Autobot to handle on his own. Over time, this continual merging seemingly healed the rift between the two somewhat.
Not completely, of course, but this slight reconciliation between the two allowed Omega Prime to become even more effective, which may have made the difference between victory and defeat in the Autobots' final battle with Galvatron - an immensely upgraded version of Megatron himself.
Overwhelmed when Galvatron leeched Fortress Maximus' power with his vampiric abilities, Omega Prime attempted to sacrifice himself to seal him in the earth's core, but this turned out to be unnecessary; Omega was saved by an influx of power from a recovered Fort Max, you see.
Using this power, Omega Prime crafted his mighty Matrix Blade, and used it to bludgeon Galvatron senseless, even breaking that villain's mega sword in the process! Once he'd defeated Galvatron, Omega Prime seized him and imprisoned him within the confines of Fortress Maximus.
With Galvatron and his goons beaten, Omega Prime found that he was no longer needed. As such, he again reverted into his component Autobots, who split up for a time; Optimus to make sure the earth was okay without the Autobots, and Magnus to secure the Autobots' prisoners.
The two brothers ultimately returned to Cybertron however, and they seemingly no longer need the power of Omega Prime. Should a mighty threat to freedom rear its ugly head anew though, you can guarantee that the universe hasn't seen the last of Omega!
