    Who do you think would win and why between movie ShockWave, and movie Starscream from the comics?

    Personally, I would choose Starscream just because I am a big fan of him, but ShockWave is or was a bad-ass mutha f**ka on his own rights. But who would you pick?

    Well in the first movie Starscream was the best fighter amongst the Decepticons, but he got killed by Sam.
    Shockwave, walked around, fired like one shot, and then got taken out by parachute.

    I'm going to go with Starscream.

    Shockwave wouldn't even touch Starscream unless you have the Driller helping him, and even that is a maybe.

    Shockwave in the films is badass looking but is basically a walking cannon. If Starscream attacked from the air then Shockwave would be easily defeated. Shockwave can only win if Starscream gets 'cocky' and chooses to fight on the ground.

    I think it depends on environment. A wide-open space with little cover would be in Starscream's favour; he has the room to use his jet mode for deadly strafing attacks, as well as utilising the full extent of his agility in robot mode thanks to his jet-pack and compact form. Shockwave would have a hard time keeping up with him, but then, he'd have a better chance of scoring clean shots with his big-ass cannon.

    A more enclosed environment would suit Shockwave. Starscream has little room to fly, and Shockwave can bring his brute strength to bear. It helps that he's far more durable then Screamer and thus can better absorb hits then his enemy.

    I'd say it's pretty even; might vs flight.
