Returning back to SOCCENT Forward Operations Base in Qatar after a mission behind enemy lines, Captain Lennox's men discussed what they were going to do once they got home to the States. As usual, Fig talked about his mom's cooking in Spanish,Epps commented that he'd never accept a dinner invitation to Fig's house and Donnelly reminisced about flat beer, cold hot dogs and baseball on weekends. When asked about what he wanted to do, Lennox replied that he only wanted to hold his baby girl for the first time, to which his men teased him for his sappy sentiment.
After their CV-22 Ospreys touched down, Lennox was writing a report when local boy Mahfouz visited him carrying a bag of water. Soon afterwards, he talked to his wife Sarah and their daughter on the satellite video phone. Lennox declared that their daughter was so cute that he just wanted to chew on her cheeks, and that they both made one good looking kid. To his delight, Sarah told him their girl had his laugh, though he wondered if she had merely farted. Around the same time as a mysterious MH-53 Pave Lowhelicopter had landed on the base, his connection to Sarah became distorted, and he tried to tell her that he'd be home soon as the transmission was cut.
Suddenly, the base was under attack as the helicopter somehow transformed into a giant walking weapons platform. Leading his men and the boy Mahfouz, they witnessed Epps nearly being crushed by the weapons platform before Fig saved him by firing a sabot from his grenade launcher into the 'chest' of the weapon. With Epps in tow, Lennox's unit escaped as the robot laid waste to SOCCENT, leaving no survivors.
The next morning, after making their way through the desert, the men discussed the past night's events, with Epps expressing his belief that the weapon, whatever it was, looked right back at him as he was taking its photograph. Lennox determined that no matter what, they had to get the information back to the Pentagon, and asked Mahfouz to lead them to his village where they could find a telephone line. Unknown to them, a second robot, a mechanical scorpion, was listening to their conversation and stalking them. As they neared the outskirts of the village, a metal spiked tail rose out of the sand and was about to kill Lennox when Epps fired at it, saving his life. Unfortunately, the giant scorpion killed top kick Donnelly and the men ran for their lives to the relative cover of the village.
Ordering the men to form a defensive perimeter, Lennox followed Mahfouz to his father Akram's house, the latter of whom provided him with a cell phone. As the others fought off Scorponok, Lennox attempted to call for help from the Pentagon, but had more than a little trouble with theoperator who demanded a credit card despite the life-and-death situation he was in. After successfully searching for Epps's credit card in one of the latter's many back pockets, Lennox successfully contacted the Pentagon, but not before the operator tried to get him to sign onto a Premium Plus World Service Gold Package. He'll never use that company again.
The Pentagon sent in two A-10 Thunderbolt IIs from Strike Package Bravo. Lennox ordered the men to light up the target for the Air Force' radars to lock onto and fire upon. Unfortunately, the A-10s did no appreciable damage to the metal scorpion, with Epps expressing disbelief that it could still be alive. With the call of "Bring the rain!", Lennox suggested the biggest barrels the Air Force had: the 105 millimeter cannons of an AC-130 Spectre gunship. The cannonade pounded Scorponok into the sand. As the dust settled, the scorpion got up and dove into the sand, but not before leaving part of its damaged tail behind. Lennox and Epps ran to check on Fig, who had been struck by one of the scorpion's missiles.
En-route back to America, the team studied the tail segment they salvaged from the battle scene. An analyst observed that it seemed to be covered in a Self-regenerating molecular armor. Lennox pointed out where a sabot round had burned right through. Turning to Epps's expertise, he asked if it was correct that sabot rounds had a 6000 degree magnesium burn, which Epps said was true. As Lennox ordered Epps to tell command to load sabot rounds on all their gunships, the tail suddenly came to life and narrowly missed impaling them. Epps angrily berated the analyst for telling them it was dead; Lennox ordered them to strap the tail down, while concluding that the technology behind it was 'wicked'. Touching down at Nellis Air Force Base, Lennox's men had barely walked off the plane when mysterious government agents pulled up in black SUVs and ordered the Rangers to come with them.
After arriving at Hoover Dam, Lennox and his unit met with Secretary of Defense John Keller, and were taken to see N.B.E.-1. After the Iceman began to thaw, Lennox and his unit headed for the armory, where they were having a special on forty mm sabot rounds.
When Sam Witwicky asked Agent Simmons to free a good robot, Simmons refused to listen, until Lennox got him to cooperate by putting a gun to his chest, resulting in a Mexican standoff between his unit and Sector Seven. Simmons ordered him to release him, but Lennox told Simmons he and his men didn't take orders from people who didn't exist. They won the standoff (losing really isn't an option for those guys). Lennox and his men subsequently escorted Sam and the car to Mission City, meeting other good robots en route.
After arriving in Mission City, they were attacked by a fighter jet which some truck called "Starscream". Soon afterwards, a tank started shelling them, until the good robots totally triple teamed it. When Megatron arrived, the good robots told the soldiers to fall back, and seeingthe Pontiac trying to cover the retreat of his men, Lennox tried to tell the good robot to fall back as well, but it was too late. Lennox and his men engaged the tank when it got back up, but it just wouldn't die, and things were complicated further when the helicopter that destroyed SOCCENT Qatar turned up. Telling Sam to take the AllSpark to a building to be evacuated, Lennox and his team engaged the tank thing, which began to overpower them. It was only with the help of the Camaro and some girl that they were able to kill the thing.
Later, Lennox and his men went to assist the big truck in his fight with Megatron. During the battle, that helicopter went to help his boss. Lennox totally killed it dead by the time-honored method of:
- Getting on a motorcycle.
- Jumping off the motorcycle as it slams into the enemy.
- Sliding under his opponent.
- Shooting them in the gearbox with sabot rounds until they are dead.
- Going "woo-hoo", "yee-ha", or another exclamation of success.
His final action in the battle of Mission City was to shoot a sabot round in the chest of Megatron, offering an opening to Sam to ram the All Spark in his chest, thus allowing them victory.
After the deaths of the Decepticons, the Topkick named Ironhide gave him a ride home, where he was reunited with his wife and met his newborn daughter. Transformers
IDW Transformers movie comics Edit
Though the Decepticons had been defeated, the job was not yet done in Mission City. Now acquainted with the good robots known as the Autobots, Lennox and his team accompaniedIronhide to seek out and destroy the mutation Transformers created by the AllSpark's energy. After the last of the creatures were destroyed, Optimus Prime requested Lennox's assistance in helping the Autobots escape from less-trustworthy humans such as Sector Seven. Gladly helping, the soldiers found Ironhide a trailer that Prime could use to transport Jazz's remains out of the city. As Ironhide somberly placed his comrade's body into the container, Lennox, Epps and the men lowered their heads in honour of the 'bot who saved their lives. Lennox gave Ironhide his cell phone for Sam Witwicky to call him with once they were safely away (forgetting that his wife would probably call him at some point). As soon as the Autobots left, that jerkface Agent Simmons from Sector Seven turned up, demanding to know what had transpired. To their surprise, Simmons also offered Lennox and Epps positions within Sector Seven to help defend Earth against further Transformer aggression. Initially, they refused, until Sam called Epps's phone right in front of Simmons, blowing Lennox's excuse.
A month later, Lennox and Epps have a secret meeting with Optimus Prime, Ratchet and Ironhide. He joked to Ratchet that the Autobots were late to meet them because Ratchet had stopped to take soil samples again, but Optimus mention having been followed by a police car, which Lennox suggests might have been Barricade. Lennox then informed Prime that the Decepticons' remains were about to be dumped into the ocean, and they want the Autobots to help escort the transport to the naval yards. Alliance #1
Now members of Sector Seven, Epps and Lennox oversaw the transportation of the Decepticon bodies to the San Diego US Navy base where they would be taken to the ocean and dumped. As a gesture of friendship to the Autobots, Lennox also arranged for Jazz to be properly buried at sea, an honour greatly appreciated by Optimus Prime. When the AllSpark fragment seemed to react to the presence of Megatron, Optimus Prime left it in the care of Sector Seven scientist Professor Vine while he was away. Lennox ordered Salani to stay behind and guard the shard with his life. Later, when Optimus Prime had second thoughts, he ordered Bumblebee and Ironhide to return to the Sector Seven Nevada base to retrieve the fragment, and Lennox sent Epps to accompany them. What they didn't know was Decepticons had leveled the base.
The convoy returned after learning of Wreckage and Starscream's devastating attacks. Just as Simmons was about to leave to find the All Spark shard, Lennox ordered him to stay where he was, and that Simmons's rank was negated by orders from Secretary of Defense Keller, who had terminated Sector Seven and fired Simmons. Lennox felt some regret in seeing Simmons go, but doubted they had seen the last of the strange man. Two weeks later, Lennox butted heads with unsympathetic, suspicious superiors at thePentagon, who did not trust the Autobots and were not keen on Lennox's idea of a joint military alliance. At the last they agreed, but made it clear it was the young officer's responsibility. After the disposal of the Decepticons, Lennox assured Optimus Prime that it was highly unlikely anything of Earth or Cybertronian origin could reach the bodies. Below deck, Lennox, revealed more "meteors had been seen coming down to Earth, and proposed his militaty alliance idea, with the two leaders agreeing to mutual trust and disclosure. Shortly afterwards, the Autobots and human soldiers in the newly formed NEST began training on the island of Diego Garcia, though it did not go too well. Both Optimus Prime and the newly promoted Major Lennox impressed upon the soldiers that teamwork was paramount to their successful defense of their home. After the drill, Lennox expressed admiration for Optimus Prime and the Autobots, though the Autobot leader brushed the compliments off, and stated it was humans such as Sam Witwicky and Lennox who were the true heroes, and the Autobots were just part of the problem. Soon, the NEST team had to move out—the Decepticon Swindle had been seen in San Francisco.
In San Francisco, when the Decepticons were spotted, Lennox and Bumblebee went after Swindle, who turned to face his pursuers on the Golden Gate Bridge. Lennox distracted the Decepticon from Bumblebee, a move that almost cost him his life before the Autobot destroyed Swindle. Before he died, Swindle boasted that none of them were safe, and that they would find "it". This troubled Lennox, and on the plane trip back to Diego Garcia, he confided with Prime his fears about there being more Decepticons and what they were looking for. When Optimus suggested taking Sam, a possible target, to the base on the island, Lennox refused, stating it was too much to place upon the boy, but agreed that they should assign somebody to keep an eye on him. Back at base, Lennox again butted heads with his superiors, who were supremely unhappy that the Autobots transformed into robot mode, pointedly telling Lennox that his team was expected to fix problems, not create new ones. Lennox was frustrated that the pig-headed brass still didn't trust the Autobots. After seeing Bumblebee off, the team discovered that the Decepticons were once again active in force on Earth, and were authorised to hunt down and destroy the invaders. Though their numbers and their experience grew, Lennox's men suffered losses while taking out the Decepticons. A day after destroying Incinerator and Dropkick in Florida, the team returned to Mission City to greet new Autobot recruits. Alliance #4 But one Autobot named Sideswipe was recklessly pursuing a Decepticon named Demolishor in South America. Lennox informed Optimus that the two were heading for Buenos Aires, Argentina. As the teams readied themselves, Lennox asked Optimus if Sideswipe wouldn't stand down and Prime made it clear that if he wouldn't stand down, he'll be... dealt with, but Ironhide requested to have first crack at trying to bring him into line since he trained Sideswipe, and was once like him. When the Argentine Air Force entered the fray, all three Transformers were seen as hostiles. Luckily, the NEST team arrived, and Lennox calling in for the Air Force to stand down. Tales of the Fallen #2
Eventually, the greatest test NEST had faced yet appeared when Demolisher reappeared in Shanghai, China and Lennox ordered everyone to move out. Alliance #4
The Veiled Threat Edit
Lennox and Epps traveled to NEST's Diego Garcia base on the Pearl of India and were amused when they were attacked by Somali pirates, as Ironhide and Ratchet were also with them on the ship. On arrival they met with scientists Kaminari Ishihara and Petr Andronov. Decepticon activity resulted in a NEST team co-led by Lennox and Optimus Prime to Zambia, where Lennox began to develop a mutually antagonistic relationship with Ishihara. They encountered Macerator, Payload and Dropkick at the Zambezi River. While Optimus, Ironhide and Ratchet fought them in the raging river, Lennox and Epps attempted to shoot the Decepticons with a modified stinger missile launcher, but were unable to get a shot off before they realized that it was a trap. Lennox attempted to attract the attention of the Autobots before they plunged off Victoria Falls. After Beachbreak saved Optimus from a plunge over the falls, even Lennox was moved to tears when the small Autobot was killed by Starscream. The NEST team pursued the Decepticons to a dam downstream, where Lennox, Epps and Andronov tracked down a technician to trigger the emergency release, resulting in Payload being washed away.
Returning to Diego Garcia, they barely had time to rest before there were two contacts in Peru and Australia. Lennox and Ishihara accompanied Optimus, Ironhide and Salvage to the Australian outback, where they searched until they eventually encountered Kickback, Trample and Tread. Lennox managed to nail Kickback in the side of the head with a sabot shell, though it mostly made the Decepticon angry, and Lennox might have been killed if Optimus hadn't gotten to the Decepticon first. When Ishihara risked her life to help Ironhide destroy Tread, Lennox gave her a severe talking to. As they packed up, Lennox wished Epps was there so he wouldn't have to listen to Ironhide and Ishihara talking strategy all the way back to Diego Garcia.
During the debrief, Lennox was lost by the talk of volcanoes and other power sources that the Decepticons might be after. The Autobots were lured to Rome, where Starscream challenged Optimus to a one-on-one duel. It turned out to be a trap, of course, and Starscream left Optimus to Barricade's tender mercies. Luckily Epp, Lennox, Ishihara and Andronov were around to distract Barricade by attacking him, allowing Prime to gain the upper hand, and the four humans escaped the Colosseum via a subway. The Veiled Threat
Revenge of the Fallen film Edit
- Actor: Josh Duhamel, Fumiya Yazaki (Japanese dub), Alexandre Moreno (Portuguese dub), Arturo Mercado Jr. (Spanish dub)
In the two years following the battle at Mission City, Lennox received a promotion to Major and was made field commander of NEST, an alliance between human governments and the Autobots to track down and eliminate all Decepticons active on Earth.
In 2009, NEST was deployed to Shanghai when Decepticons were detected, their sixth operation in eight months. When NEST reached the industrial center they last tracked them to, Lennox told the arriving Ironhide that they had echoes near the steel stacks, and the Autobots soldier confirmed that there was a Decepticon nearby. Sergeant Epps soon got a thermal ripple from an excavator, and as Lennox ordered NEST to be steady, the Decepticon Demolishor transformed and struck the stacks sending them and several NEST soldiers flying. As NEST returned fire, the Decepticon Sideways made a break for it. Lennox took a group to stop the Decepticon, deploying Arcee and The Twins to intercept him. When Skids and Mudflap made a bad turn and Sideways managed to fight off Arcee, Lennox ordered Sideswipe deployed, and he managed to take out the fleeing Decepticon.
Although Optimus Prime and Epps' group managed to take out Demolishor, he relayed a cryptic warning before he died: "The Fallen shall rise again". Upon returning to Diego Garcia, Lennox ordered a video briefing with General Morshower at the Pentagon. While paying his respects to the three soldiers who were killed at Shanghai, Lennox saw a helicopter land and depositTheodore Galloway, the National Security Adviser. Lennox told the Director he would need to be on the classified access list to enter, only for Galloway to slap a Presidential authorization on his chest informing them of President Obama's decision to make Galloway his official liaison. As Lennox took Galloway to the Autobots' hangar, the link to the JCS was established. Lennox greeted Chairman Morshower and told them that Optimus Prime needed to debrief him immediately. After Optimus relayed the warning of "The Fallen" to General Morshower, Galloway then interrupted to air the President's concerns, while also airing his complains over the Autobots' refusal to share weapons technology and continued sending of messages to space. Although Lennox and Epps tried to defend the Autobots, Galloway dismissed them and asked if the Autobots would peacefully leave if they were asked to. Optimus said that they would, but posed a question of his own: what if they leave, and Galloway was wrong? Lennox admitted that it was a good question.
That evening, however, the Decepticons located the AllSpark shard stored on Diego Garcia and stole it, using it to resurrect Megatron. The Autobots soon sent word to NEST of multiple incoming Decepticons, but refused to specify where they were heading and would not respond to NEST's calls. Lennox ordered NEST ready for deployment in twenty minutes. By the time they reached the United States, Lennox received a message from the Autobots: the battle with the Decepticons to rescue Sam Witwicky had not gone well, and Optimus Prime was dead. Soon after, the Decepticons launched two attacks at Paris and the United States Navy, destroying the U.S.S. Roosevelt and killing all hands aboard. Following this, The Fallen made the presence of the Transformers known and demanded that humanity turn Sam over to them.
Optimus Prime's body was brought to an Air Force base in New Jersey, and his body had barely hit the ground when the United States military surrounded the Autobots. Lennox ordered the soldiers to lower their weapons, only to learn that Director Galloway had managed to place himself in charge of NEST and order it deactivated, with the Autobots to be placed under guard. Lennox tried to argue the Autobots value, but Galloway dismissed his arguments by saying they would buy time by negotiating with the Decepticons, even if it meant handing Sam over to the Decepticons. As a final insult to injury, Galloway then stripped Lennox's NEST badge off his uniform.
As the Autobots were being "restrained" and loaded onto C-17s for transport back to Diego Garcia, Lennox received a phone call from none other than Seymour Simmons, who said that he was with Sam and needed Optimus brought to the Gulf of Aqaba in Egypt. Lennox found it strange, but realized that Sam had a better idea of the stakes and decided to trust him. Lennox had a message with the coordinates sent to General Morshower, including a warning to get ready to bring the rain, while spreading word among the NEST troops to be ready.
When they reached the coordinates, the pilot faked engine trouble and ordered an emergency evac. Despite Galloway's threat to end his career, he was able to strap a parachute onto the panicking bureaucrat and trick him into opening the chute while inside the plane. Finally ready, NEST parachuted into the Gulf. Landing in a village on the beach, Lennox ordered NEST ready for combat. Once Agent Graham had a visual on Yellow team, Lennox ordered a flair popped to lead Sam to them. Unfortunately, the flare also got the attention ofStarscream, who began attacking the incoming Autobots and releasing an electromagnetic pulse to disable NEST's communications.
When Megatron and thirteen Decepticons arrived, Lennox ordered a group to go with Ironhide and Arcee to find Sam and lead him through the pillars, where NEST would ambush the Decepticons. Once NEST began firing on the Decepticons, Ironhide's team rolled out. In the following battle, NEST was hard pressed to provide proper support to the remaining Autobots. Fortunately, General Morshower eventually discovered what was really happening and sent heavy armor to assist them. Members of Ironhide's team said that they were unable to reach the kid but told him where to go. Unfortunately, Megatron was hot on his trail, and Lennox ordered the tanks to provide cover fire while he and Epps made their way to Sam and Mikaela. Once they reached him, Sam was insistent on getting to Optimus, despite the incoming air strike. Before they could leave, the group was forced to hide behind the wall they were using for cover, as the Decepticon Mixmaster was using it for the same purpose. Salvation arrived in the form of the Decepticon-turned-Autobot Jetfire, who killed Mixmaster. Unfortunately, Jetfire was then attacked by Lennox and Epps' old "pal" Scorponok, who in turn was killed.
With the air strike incoming, Lennox told Sam and Mikaela to stay with him as they ran. Unfortunately, Epps' toss had been less than stellar. Namely, it was a mere feet away from their position. With the F-16s about to fire, Lennox and Epps ordered everyone to run like hell. Barely making away from the blast zone, Lennox ordered Sam to get back when he made a mad dash for Optimus' body. Before he could reach it, Megatron fired, sending Sam hurtling through the air before being forced to retreat. As Lennox started CPR on the boy, medics arrived to try and revive him. It appeared that Sam was dead, but something revived him. The dust in his sock turned into some sort of dagger, and Sam used it to revive Optimus Prime.
Unfortunately, that wasn't the end, as The Fallen teleported in, killed some soldiers, and stole the dagger. As it turns out, it wasn't some handy Autobot reviver. It was the Matrix of Leadership, an artifact used to activate a weapon which would create energon by destroying stars. The Fallen then raised the heavy weaponry attacking the Decepticons on the Great Pyramid of Giza, compelling the dying Jetfire to give his parts to Optimus. Once Optimus flew off, Lennox ordered NEST to follow him and start running toward the pyramid. As one can assume, Optimus destroyed the machine and killed The Fallen before they arrived. With the battle won, Lennox was seen congratulating Simmons on his role in helping to save the world. Revenge of the Fallen
IDW post-Revenge of the Fallen comics Edit
What? So I'm played by Ben Browder now.
Lennox led a NEST mission to stop Alice, after the Decepticon stole an RV. He instructed Epps to tell their sharpshooters to hold fire in case there was anyone else inside. He returned to Beale Air Force Base and reported the mission's success to Optimus over a video link. Noting the recent reduction in NEST's funding, he blamed Galloway and reflected he should never have thrown Galloway out of that plane. While Lennox watched Sideswipe's display of bigotry, Janson informed him of spark traces converging on Kingdom Petrochemicals. Nefarious #1 Some time later at Edwards Air Force Base, Lennox found himself being told off by Galloway, who was annoyed at the operation at Kingdom Petrochemicals and the new Autobots who didn't have paperwork, and who informed him that NEST was being stood down. Lennox, for his part, didn't tell Galloway that a mysterious group of humans had been involved in the Kingdom Petrochemicals battle. When three Decepticon contacts conveniently turned up, Lennox and Optimus grew more perplexed. Nefarious #2
Lennox was very annoyed when Optimus took Soundwave prisoner without consulting him, even more so when the plane transporting Soundwave was shot down. Nefarious #3 After Soundwave was freed by the Decepticons, Lennox lamented the position they were in, but then they received a distress call from Galloway. A NEST team led by Lennox rushed to his aid and then they proceeded to Hoover Dam, where they found someone had broken in.Nefarious #4 Lennox prepared his troops to assault the Initiative base, and Galloway agreed to keep the operation off the official channels. As they headed to Oregon, Optimus informed Lennox that the enemy was tapping powers they didn't fully understand. Nefarious #5 Following the battle against the Initiative, Lennox and his men rounded up the surviving members and did clean up. Nefarious #6

Lennox was at the NEST base when Decepticon activity was detected in Tokyo. He accompanied the Autobots there, and drove around in his jeep until Optimus had defeated Barricade and Grindor. At that point the Decepticons gloated that they were merely a diversion, and Optimus and Lennox realised that Sam was in danger! Sam in Danger
Dark of the Moon film Edit
- Actor: Josh Duhamel, Fumiya Yazaki (Japanese dub), Arturo Mercado Jr. (Spanish dub)
With the Decepticon threat mostly gone, Colonel Lennox's NEST teams mostly spent their time working on human problems. Lennox traveled to the Ukraine with the Autobots to secretly meet with Department of Energy General Counsel, Alexi Voskhod, who passed on the information that something alien had been found at Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. The NEST team proceeded to Pripyat with Voskhod, though Lennox was surprised at first that Voskhod wasn't wearing protective gear. Lennox and his men were led through a school and to the power plant itself. Within, they located some sort of alien device, however before they could secure it, they were attacked by the Driller which made off with the device. Lennox and his team evacuated the building and outside joined Optimus Prime in fighting off the driller, managing to regain possession of the device, which Optimus told Lennox was a piece from an Autobot ship.
Returning to the US, Lennox got a visit from his new favorite pain-in-the-ass, Director of National Intelligence Charlotte Mearing, who had a bee in her bonnet over certain recent missions NEST had been undertaking in the Middle East. Lennox claimed that the Autobots sometimes sneaked out without his knowledge. He spectated as Mearing introduced Optimus to Buzz Aldrin, and it was explained that the Autobot ship, the Ark had crashed on the Moon. Some time later, Sam Witwicky turned up at the secret NEST base with information about Decepticon activities he'd gained from a coworker, and got Lennox's attention when the information pertained to the Moon. They watched as Optimus used the Matrix to revive Sentinel Prime, and Lennox ordered his men not to fire as Sentinel attacked Optimus.
When Sam discovered that the Decepticons were after Sentinel to activate the space bridge Pillars, Lennox deployed NEST teams to track the enemy down. He met Sam at the gate when the boy arrived with Sentinel, however then it turned out Sentinel was on the Decepticon's side. Lennox ordered the NEST teams recalled, but it was too late. Sentinel trashed the NEST base in search of the Pillars, and Lennox had to restrain Mearing from trying to confront the Autobot. The Autobots pursued Sentinel to Washington, D.C., with Lennox riding in Bumblebee, but were unable to prevent Sentinel from bringing masses of Decepticons to Earth. Lennox subsequently met with General Morshower, and reported to Mearing that the Decepticons had gone into hiding, but then they received a recorded message from Sentinel, demanding the exile of Optimus's Autobots from Earth.
Following the attack on Chicago, Lennox went to Grissom Air Force Base to coordinate a response, networking with Morshower and Mearing by video. They were unable to find out what was happening in Chicago until they got a transmission from Epps, Sam and Carly via a downed military drone. Lennox organized a NEST team to enter the embattled city. They traveled in byOsprey and used a combination of wingsuits and parachutes to reach the ground..
They first located Sam Witwicky, who was dangling from Starscream via grapple glove. While Lennox tried to cut him free before the bomb in Starscream's head exploded, the pair were tossed around, and finally caught by Bumblebee. Lennox led his team to the river where they rendezvoused with Epps and his group as well as a team of Navy Seals, but were unable to cross the bridge until someone eventually lowered it remotely. On the other side of the river, they set up an ambush to attack a group of Decepticons including Shockwave. Lennox and some of the other men parachuted down in an attempt to get on top of the Decepticons and engage them at close range. With Optimus's help, they succeeded in taking out the Decepticons, and in return aided Optimus in his fight against Sentinel by shooting at the other Autobot and helping to take out the control Pillar. Following the battle, Lennox and his men walked out onto the bridge where Optimus had defeated both Megatron and Sentinel. Dark of the Moon

Transformers (2010) Edit
Human Alliance Edit
- Autobot Jazz with Captain Lennox (2010)
- Japanese ID number: RA-32
- A posable Captain Lennox figure is included with Human Alliance Jazz, and can interact with him in various ways. He uses a more simplified design than other Human Alliance figures, with the waist and wrist joints omitted, meaning that he is unable to grip the horizontal handles on the shoulder cannon and motorcycle with his vertically-aligned hands.
- This mold was retooled into Dark of the Moon Major Tungsten.
- More information on Captain Lennox at TFU.info
Robot Heroes Edit
- Desert Devastation (Multi-pack, 2009)
- A super deformed figure with a super deformed gun, Robot Heroes Lennox is sculpted grinning wildly and holding a yellow walkie-talkie. He is only available in a multi-pack with Devastator and vehicle-mode Skids and Mudflap.
- More information on Robots Heroes Lennox at TFU.info
By Grabthar's hammer, by the suns of Warvan, you shall be avenged!
- A later scene where Lennox comforts the dying Figueroa was cut from the theatrical release of the film, but briefly seen in the December 2006 trailer. The scene survived in both the novelization and the children's novelization where (despite many changes made to tone down descriptions of violence against robots) he still died. Go fig!
- Early scripts give Lennox's rank as Sergeant.
- Lennox is given the nickname "Wild Bill" in the novelization. Whether this was a deliberate reference to the G.I. Joe character remains unknown.
- Josh Duhamel's left foot was injured by a piece of fake shrapnel during filming.
- The Capture of Bumblebee set from the "Screen Battles" packs features what appear to be two Sector Seven soldiers, but one of them is obviously Lennox painted in Sector Seven colors. In fact, the Screen Battles "Desert Attack" set with Scorponok was originally supposed to come with four instead of three soldiers (with Lennox likely being the fourth), whereas the "Capture of Bumblebee" set was originally supposed to include four figures listed as "S7 Agent, S7 soldier, Ice soldiers". The "ice soldiers" were likely dropped for budget reasons, and Lennox moved to the "Capture of Bumblebee" set for the same reason.
