** It's not just a fan theory in S.W.O.R.D. - not only is it set before Death's Head was shrunk to human size, but it's even set before his Transformers appearances - Beast suggests that instead of 'Bounty Hunter' or 'Personal Recovery Specialist', Death's Head should call himself a 'Freelance Peacekeeping Agent'. Death's Head likes the term.

Death's Head's first published appearance was in ''Transformers UK'' #113 (May, 1987)[[note]]He first appeared in the one-page story "High Noon Tex" to ensure the character rights remained with Marvel, but the story was not published until after his ''Transformers'' debut.[[/note]] when he was contracted by various Transformers to assassinate members of the opposing faction. During a battle between the Transformers and Unicron, Death's Head fell into a time portal and crashed into [[Series/DoctorWho the Doctor]]'s TARDIS. In defense, the Doctor (then in [[Creator/{{Sylvester McCoy}} his seventh incarnation]]) shrank him to human size and sent him off through time, leading to a confrontation with the Dragon's Claws, a futuristic militia group. Though nearly destroyed in battle, Death's Head was recovered and rebuilt by a [[MrFixit tinkerer]] named Spratt. After settling his score with the Dragon's Claws, Death's Head (with Spratt in tow) left to resume business as a [[BountyHunter Freelance Peacekeeping Agent]].
