First Comic Appearance:

Other appearances: Inferno made his debut in 1985 as a very cool transforming fire truck.  His next appearance was as an Action Master.  There was also a character named Inferno in Beast Wars, the deranged and awesome fire ant.  Even though he was a Maximal reprogrammed as a Predacon by Tarantulas, I don't consider that Inferno to be the same as this the Autobot fire truck.
