So I'm not a HUGE TF comic reader, but I have read some of the more current IDW stuff, and I feel that Hound is one of the most under used G1 characters still in rotation. I think IDW attempted to paint him in the light of being a drill sergeant, but they haven't really captured it right. I know people compare current characters to existing characters so why can't Hound be like Beachhead from GI Joe. Or Sgt Slaughter. This would allow us to be able to have new recruits introduced ala Drift, and before they start hanging with the heavy hitters they gotta go thru training missions with Hound and earn their way into the higher ranks of the Autobots. IMO, this also would set up some cool animosity between Hound and his recruits and Kup and the Wreckers. With Hound viewing Kup and Springer cherry picking recruits and teaching them to be reckless and to not follow orders or chain of command, and Kup telling Hound that he's still wet behind the servos, and that he is bringing up the new 'Bots to be too soft, and he would expect more from one of his former best recruits! Again, someone is gonna burst my bubble and say this has already been done, and if it has point me in that direction, but if it hasn't this would be a really really cool way to further flesh out a character who never got enough shine. What do you guys think?
