    Was their any Female Autobot Leadder at any Continuity that carried The Matrix? I would of loved a female Autobot carrying the load and being the Bearer Of The Matrix. I think Arcee in TF Prime could take over she shows great leadership as the show progresses.

    If OP kicks the bucket in Transformers Prime, Arcee should totally be the next leader! Arcea Prime!

    Elita-1 is the next closest as a leader, so far. The Animated continuity has an "Override Prime" who is a female, but if the Aligned Universe grows into what Hasbro hopes it to, we'll probably be seeing another female Prime in the coming times (either as acting leader, or flashbacks).

    It would be definitely super-cool. At least for us girls.

    Much as she's a great character, Arcee basically turns into a nanny by the end of the G1 series and is basically a secretary in Headmasters. For shame.

    Elita-1 has pretty much the same origin as Prime, and led a guerrila underground for millions of years, she probably would be a fine leader.

    Actually Elita-1 did have her own Matrix.

    Override from Cybertron was the leader of her home planet, but I don't think any of the Cybertron leaders besides Optimus had a Matrix.

    Would love to see a female bot as head. And like a few posters above, I reckon that Prime Arcee will have what it takes after a season or two of character development.
    Besides, it's not like anyone is going to be surprised when Optimus kicks it.

    Animated would have been a great format to introduce a female prime to go with all the others

    come to think of it.... its a pretty wacky idea.

    The female-matrix she is carrying will be similar to conventional one (with handles and all)... but it can be folded out to form a bra-like object.

    The "Shine out darkest hour" scene will be memorable.

    First off, it's "Light our darkest hour".

    Second off, its been well established that the Matrix reformats the bearer to accommodate IT (bigger, broader, AND to carry the Matrix INSIDE) instead of the Matrix reformatting to accommodate the bearer. A female Matrix bearer would be reformatted like the males have been - to be bigger and burlier, more akin to a male or even to Strika than a curvy petite femme.

    Cybertron Override was a leader of sorts. However, I still see the character as "NITRO CONVOY" since I watched Galaxy Force instead, and the character was not female in that series. Still, there you go.

    Actually, that's conjecture on your part. It's well established that the Matrix does something to the bodies of MALE Transformers (in as much as there are males and females in the franchise). But we have had no conclusive proof of the Matrix doing anything to any FEMALE one.

    Different bodies may mean diffreent rules. After all, it mutates Scourge into a steroid abuser. The Matrix may have turned a female Transformer into a more pettite and feminine form for all we know. There's no proof either way.


    As to the topic on hand, Elita-1 was the leader of the Autobot resistance on Cybertron after Prime and crew left, she comes close in G1.
    Override was leader of her planet in Cybertron. But she was a he in Japan, so, take that as you will (so was Airrazor for that matter, which made the Tigatron interactions....different...)
    Solus Prime is a Prime. She's never been seen yet, only named/mentioned.
    Arcee in Prime is pretty much the field commander when Oppy isn't around.


    Not many continuities had female TFs though, so there's a far smaller amount of female TFs than could be, much less ones that could be the boss.
