Johnson ML and His Background Story

Johnson ML

Johnson ML has several popular nicknames—Mustang, Former Quarterback, Champ, and Transformer. He was once a famous quarterback with a sturdy body like a rock, who has won many trophies for his team and a champion with millions of fans.

One day, an unfortunate event happened while he was driving his sports car. Johnson drifted his car to avoid hitting a little girl who suddenly dashed to the street. He suffered from a hard crash and severe massive brain hemorrhage.

A miracle came to him on the brink of life and death when several inventors of Eruditio City found him amidst his car wrecks. They brought him to their city and Dr. Rooney, who later saved him and turned him into a fantastic cyborg (mechanical-human type). The cool thing is he can transform into a full-speed sports car—The Mustang, aka Transformer hero.

Unlike other truly mechanical heroes, such as Angela and Jawhead, Johnson ML still keeps his consciousness and recalls his memories as human. Ever since, Johnson decided to return the favor by being an impenetrable barricade for Eruditio City. He will race to protect the city against any attack or outside damage.
