Noted Decepticon Starscream is scaling a wall beside one of the most significant events in Cybertronian history, and security don't try to stop him BEFORE he lands on the stage and hogs the camera?

I think Starscream's actually in the crowd, and the bot scaling the wall is someone else. Maybe security, even?

This book is so good. And I actually can see how people would believe in Starscream enough to at least give him a chance(and in their mind just enough rope to hang himself with). Its a nice change from the usual Marvel thing of people just trusting Old Loki or Norman Freaken Osborn because of sheer stupidity.

But so has every Decepticon leader you might end up dealing with, and with Starscream, you can see him singing a new tune for his own benefit.

Not this one. Although he did have a seat on the senate for a period, and publicly supported one of Zeta Prime's more insane plans to stop the Decepticons. (Mostly because it was SO freaking insane it'd do nothing but help the 'Cons.)

Well played.

For the greater good the Autobots have to let Starscream make his play. Such a move would not work with the Decepticons.

I always knew there was a reason why Starscream was my favorite Generation 1 character.

Can I vote for him this election? I normally vote Cobra Commander, but this year I'm willing to make an exception.

Nothing is more deceptive than honesty. That said, when did Starscream double his IQ?

He does make the occasional smart move. His main problem isn't that his plans suck, but that he relies too much on them succeeding.

Sort of... but he does think about his plans ahead of time fairly often.

It's not like he rushes in thoughtlessly. He rushes in thinking, "This'll be perfectly safe because of that other plan I did earlier."

IDW Starscream has been smarter, shrewder than versions to come before him in G1. So much so, that I actually was reading the above in a different voice-- the one from Prime seemed apt, actually.

From: [personal profile] kamino_neko
Hmm. While Prime Starscream is certainly less of an idiot than G1, he's also rather more craven... It's doubtful he'd pull something this grand. (Although in the new season he seems to have grown a pretty good set of wrecking balls, going so far as to brazenly walk into Decepticon HQ after quitting the team to swipe some Energon cubes...)

Good stuff.

I can never unhear Starscream's 80s cartoon voice, which makes me hate him, but enjoy hating him, and I'm really happy to see this extremely confusing turn from him.

What I really wonder is how this will go for Long Haul once the 'Cons back at their base realize Bee's not dead - I rather doubt 'well we ARE Decepticons' will quite cut it.

I suspect the 'cons back in base are about to find themselves in a lot of trouble.

kamino_neko: Kamino Neko's default icon... (Default)
From: [personal profile] kamino_neko
Yeah, but I suspect that'll work against Long Haul, since they're obviously not all going to end up dead or in the slammer, and lying about Bee's assassination would make him a pretty obvious suspect for what went down - as Screamer's accomplice, of course.

Guess it really comes down to who's with who once the 'Cons inevitably break into factions. Who will side with Starscream, and who will side with (I would assume) Soundwave and Shockwave? If all (or at least most) of the Constructicons are on Screamer's side, then he'll probably be OK, but if they're not... After the lie, who but Screamer will trust him even as far as any Decepticon trusts any other? But, contrarily, if he's with Screamer, and most of the other Constructicons are with the Waves, who among Starscream's loyalists will be sure that LH's loyalties lie with him, and not his subgroup?

Hmm. Thinking some more on this, it'd be interesting if the (hypothetical) Decepticon factions took new names, since the Decepticon faction is a) beaten and b) fractured.

I vote Destron for Screamer's faction, and Ultracon for the Waves' followers.

I 'unno. He screws over Ratbat pretty hard, and catches Long Haul as collateral damage, and he's going to have to screw the Waves over in order to keep his spark chamber inside his body...but the rest of the 'Cons, if Screamer plays this well, will likely end up in a better place than they would have been otherwise.
