I've been pondering this for a long time now. For me, at least, one of the reasons Jolt as a character remains interesting is that he's never said anything (that recent UK comic aside, but I'm in the camp that prefers IDW's timeline for any expanded-universe movie stuff). Heck, even in the first issue of Nefarious, Jolt is present and ass-kicking but still muter than a de-bleated goat. I'll also admit that the Autobots already have their own resident mute in the form of Bumblebee. However, Bee gets a hell of a lot more screen time than Jolt and he has that radio-speak gig going for him. When I first heard that Bee wasn't going to be able to speak in the 2007 film I had hard time supporting the idea, but after two movies of it I'm perfectly fine. Bee's body language and radio speak were plenty to help illustrate his personality. Jolt on the other hand, well its a pipe dream to hope he'll get a load of screen time in TF3, if he's even present at all. So I don't think he'll have the same chances to emote as Bee did, and I understand that. His status as a last-minute addition to the cast in ROTF explaining exactly WHY he barely did anything in the movie except help power-up Prime and be the only blue robot. Frankly? I hope he never gets a line out. I kind of dig the idea of Jolt being the Autobot's Boba Fett type, the dude who's job is nothing more than to sit in the background and be blue-looking. Yeah, Boba Fett got a couple lines in Empire, but he basically said next to nothing in Return. Just from my perspective, the less he says the more interesting and curious his character is. What're your thoughts? And please, none of that "oh the bots don't get any lines or characterization outside of Bee/Prime/Ironhide/Twins, from what little the bikes/Sideswipe/Ratchet said I was able to draw a decent picture of their personality, Jolt on the other hand is still a big, blue, blank slate. Did I mention Jolt is blue?
