Needler is the mechanoid partner to Bombshell, who uses his pincers and flamethrowers to destroy anything Bombshell doesn't mind-warp first.
Dreamwave comics continuity
Bombshell used a type of cerebro-shell patterned on Needler.
Note: This shell probably does not represent Needler him/itself. Needler's connection to cerebro-shell technology (if any) is unknown but can likely be attributed to Dreamwave's rampant use of Easter Eggs.

- Needler is a robotic scarab who was only sold with the Action Master version of Bombshell, available only in the European markets. He can plug into Bombshell's back, and pressing a trigger flips his head up and over Bombshell's, forming a battle mask of sorts.
