    G1 Shockwave. Movie Shockwave was underused and I don't play video games. You also forgot TF Animated Shockwave who was a good representation of him.

    I'm not going to bother talking about DOTM not using shockwave- but from a design standpoint, DOTM shockwave was pretty spectacular (at least for a non transforming transformer).

    I agree with this. That was the only thing I loved about Bay's Shockwave, the design was practically perfect.

    You always seem to add some back story in a run on sentence to everything you post reminds me of the days before the war when there was peace but now i can only sit here longing for it

    Marvel G1 Shockwave. He took over command of the Decepticons in issue 5 and held it for... a long time. Like issue 18 or something. Design wise, WFC/FOC Shockwave is a close second followed by DOTM and Animated.

    GEE WON Shockwave in terms of character. For as mishandled as movie shockwave was, I thought he had a really badass design

    Yes, this. Bay's design was, in my opinion, the definition of Shockwave. He was super awesome. None of the others have his warrior build.

    Lot of good that warrior build did since the unstoppable team of humans and Autobots could kill him at only a slightly slower pace than everything else they were slaughtering.

    I'll go with Marvel G1 since that was a robot to be feared and respected.

    Easily G1. The Marvel comics Shockwave ruled and I hear the IDW Shockwave is pretty good too.

    Movie Shockwave. He really took the "silent, emotionless killer psychopath with one eye and a gigantic cannon" character description to heart. I mean, really silent. He had only one line. (Though his voice was awesome, thank you Frank Welker.)

    Add that to the fact that he was strongest and coolest out of all Shockwaves (It took like 30 guys to kill him, including the Wreckers.), and he wins.

    I'm going to move away from the options you've given and say Animated Shockwave. He had a neat design, character background and development, and had his own little story arc and even became a major player throughout season three of the show.

    Movie Game Shockwave was only there for the sake of another homage; DOTM Shockwave, while he was cool in design and ability, we should have seen more of him and it would've been nice if he'd talked; G1 cartoon Shockwave didn't do anything, really, but I hear Marvel Shockwave is cool; And we really haven't seen any of FOC Shockwave in terms of character. But he does a have a cool design.

    G1 comics Shockwave, because he actually had a characterization.

    And the lack of ponctuation in this phrase, or sense, for that matter, is total proof of that...

    Also, G1 comics shocky ^^I read them when I was just a kid, and don't remember that much, but I remember him as being a very dark and scary character

    Mother fucking this!

    He had the best Shockwave design up to date, ruined Wasp's life, infiltrated the Autobot High Command and became the the head of Cybertron Intelligence by killing the previous title owner Highbrow, killed Blurr, killed Ultra Magnus and took his hammer, brough down Cybertron's entire interplanetary transport and communications system and to top it all of gave Megatron full control over the Autobots' most powerful weapon.

    Animated Shockwave was a BADASS!

    It was never said he killed Ultra Magnus. He heavily incapacitated Magnus probably with the help of Decepticon reinforcements, then took Magnus's hammer as a trophy.

    If season 4 was made they said that Ultra Magnus would die at life support which means the damage inflicted was too massive for him to recover.

    It's all in the Allspark Almanac.

    And honesly I don't think he had or even needed reinforcements. It was an unexpected back stab like what Megatron did to Sentinel in DOTM. It doesn't matter how tuff you are if someone hits you hard when you're unprepared you're going down.
