From The Oracle II
Primax 1005.19 Gamma (IDW G1)In 4 MYA, Hook and the Constructicons were on strike during a labor dispute when their jobs were eventually bought out by the Senate, making the Constructicons unemployed. While Huffer went his own way, Hook and the other Constructicons began to work for the gladiator ring known as the Forge in Kaon, creating and deconstructing the rings each night by melting down empties. One night, while constructing the Forge, the site was compromised and two Autobot spies were killed. Hook would serve with the other Constructicons as the medics of the gladiators in the Forge and was present when Starscream, Skywarp, and Thundercracker joined the Decepticons. Hook was given the task of outfitting the three brothers with weapons.
