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.
