Groundpounder of the Construction Patrol lives by the philosophy, "Dig first, plan later." His tendency to dig into buried power lines, gas mains, and sewage pipes has made him less-than-popular with his teammates.
Remember, call before you dig!
Dreamwave comics continuity
Groundpounder was present in the Micromaster barracks when Big Daddy flew off the handle and stormed off with his Hot Rod Patrol. Later, Groundpounder was testing his might against Bombshock in Little Iacon: both he and Dropshot were arm-wrestling a single one of Bombshock's arms — and losing!
IDW comics continuity
Groundpounder was one of the legions of Dead Universe Micromasters who pursued Hardhead and Nightbeat on Gorlam Prime. He survived to pursue the Autobots into the planet's subterranean caverns, and helped the Jhiaxus-possessed Nightbeat dig out after Hardhead triggered a cave-in.
