Who was actually the better commander of the Decepticons for G1, Megatron or Shockwave? For years Megatron tried to defeat the Autobots and rule Cybertron, and everything else for that matter, but failed. When he left Shockwave in charge of Cybertron while he and his crew followed the Autobots and crashed on Earth, Shockwave managed to lead the Decepticons to drive the Autobots underground and forcing them to fight with gorilla like tactics. Meanwhile Megatron awakins and can't even stop a handfull of Autobots using his best warriors. For some reason in the cartoon they made Shockwave into to much of a pansey. If they would have given him his comic persona I believe ol Megs would have bought the big one during a trip on the space bridge. My conclusion id that Shockwave would have made a much better Decepticon commander than Megatron and would have had a better chance of stopping the Autobots and ruling Cyberton. Whats your opinion?
