I was thinking about the character, Scarlett in G.I. Joe Renegades, and how, unlike previous G.I. Joe incarnations, she is higher ranking than Duke. I thought that was interesting. What if, in Transformers Prime, Elita One is actually higher ranking than Optimus? She's commanding a crew of Autobots when her ship visits Earth. She finds Optimus, doesn't quite approve of what he is doing on Earth, and maybe threatens to pull his rank. Maybe she feels he's being a little reckless and doesn't quite approve of how he's handling things. I don't know if I would quite like this idea, but it would sure be a twist.
