    He ended the Cybertronian wars and killed Unicron. He still thought he wasn't as great as Optimus.

    I don't know where I am going with this, just thinking about the ongoing comic series and how he's like the messiah, and it's like "deliver us to the promised land" /song

    My all time favorite TF character! (Lio Jr. comes in as a damned close 2nd though!)

    I really like Rodimus now, but I didn't always. I think my main problem with him was how I couldn't help but associate him with the death of Optimus, who was always my favorite. Eventually I was able to see Rodimus as his own character and not as a "replacement" Optimus and he has since become one of my favorite characters.

    I think that's a huge problem with people who hate Rodimus, many of them blame him for Optimus's death.

    Blame Hasbro people! Rodimus is innocent.

    Yeah? :D

    He's cool, but ironically, he's one of the few guys I like far more in toon version than any of his comic counterparts got.

    Furman just didn't seem to get him back in the day. Not like he ever did much w/him but pretend he never existed it seems.

    DW never had him (okay, they had Hot Rod, but he's not really Rodimus).

    IDW is just stupidly bad.

    But to this day, "Burden Hardest to Bear" is one of my favorite TF stories of all time.

    Even some of his non-G1 (heck, most all of his non-G1) counterparts are great guys. Energon Rodimus was awesome. TFA Rodimus was just fantastic.

    I am starting to like IDW Rodimus, didn't like him at first.

    And Energon Rodimus was just bad ass! I loved him.

    Rodimus is also one of my favorites. I always look at him longingly because he was simply miss handled. If he were given the same character arc Cheetor got from the beginning of Beast Wars to the end of Beast Machines I feel people would love him more. Plus he's a red sports car. That makes him fantastic.

    But I always find it a little annoying that people claim he killed Optimus. Optimus was doomed for several reason. The main reason is because the powers that be wanted him to die. No matter what happened, he was going to die. Ignoring that, even in the fight, he and Megatron were talking with Megs inching towards the gun. Had Rodimus not jumped in Megs still would have grabbed the gun and gotten a shot off with the same end results.

    I really like the 2 issues that Nick Roche did with Hot Rod ("Spotlight: Hot Rod" and "Heart Like a Wheel" (ongoing issue 13)). Even if I had no other experience with Hot Rod, those 2 issues make him a really appealing dedicated daredevil of a character, and Nick Roche's art makes him appropriately energetic

    Um, have you read the UK stuff Furman wrote? Tons of Rodimus. The US under Budiansky didn't use the movie stuff so with no time skip naturally Rodimus didn't showed up. Not like Furman was suddenly going to force the comics to line up with the post-movie when he took over.

    I agree with you up to the Optimus is better part. Rodimus was a far more complex and engaging character than Optimus.

    I like Hot Rod in G2, you know, when he pulled a gun on those Aerialbots. That's about all i know about him.
