Grimlock ♥ Ultra Magnus

I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.

Why is Prime such a fucking pill?   Hates.   I really would read the crap out of a comic where Grimlock just stomps on him, though...

 

Going back a bit for stuff I missed: 

 

 

This panel is just hot.   

 

 

The art in TF/New Avengers was pretty bad, but I like this take on Bee's Avatar.   Oh, yeah, when he introduced her earlier, everyone just called her she.  If I remember correctly, at some point he explains picking a female avatar because it seemed less threatening and he needed to be able to negotiate more.   I could be horribly wrong, as I was with Arcee: I remember them specifically stating that male and female inputs - as opposed to the singular male before Jhiaxus messed around with her - was driving her crazy, but it's more implied.   

 

Anyway, yeah, Bee never identifies as female - even when using the female avatar - nor is he bothered by people assuming he's female.   That's his intent and he's comfortable enough in his own skin not to get prickly about it, too.   I just think what they were doing with gender was pretty amazing given that this was like ten years ago in a comic book about what was a children's franchise at the beginning.   I'm surprised, and impressed, that Hasbro has been so progressive, encouraging the same-sex marriages between Cybertronians later on, too.   And of course, IDW is amazing for publishing this all.
