    Hello,is G1 Autobot Wheelie TF version of Peter Pan ?
    I ask this question because My friend say he never growth up ,am I right?
    Do Transformers growth up or aged ?
    Is Wheelie older than Cyclonus and Scourge,I heard both of them have more life experience in fighting skill and courage than Wheelie?

    Could Shockwave also TF version of Captain Hook!

    Thanks.

    He's more supposed to be like a "feral boy" archetype, where he's a young child who's grown up in a harsh wilderness and never known friendship or civilization.

    You COULD get a little Peter-Pan vibe from his wild-child'ness, but no.

    1: Peter Pan's archetype is that he ran away from home because he resented his (loving) parents. We know Wheelie's parents died tragically, and that he misses them.

    2: Peter Pan is a bad-ass that wants a mother because he's emotionally disconnected. Wheelie is a brave little bugger who know's he's vulnerable, and is emotionally open and eager to make new friends.

    3: Peter-Pan occasionally shows signs of growning up, but never really does, because he doesn't WORK if he actually matures. Wheelie (In Headmasters) had a few moments of learning growth and responsibility in tandem with Daniel.

    So yeah, I see where you're going with it (That sharktooth necklace is pretty compelling), but no, they're quite different.

    Wheelie is much more like Mogli from the Jungle Book.

    I was going to say more like a young Robinson Crusoe, or the kid from Shipwrecked, but yeah, Mowgli works too.

    With that slingshot and trouble making he does....he's either Dennis the Menace or Bart Simpson.
