    What exactly has SS done for Megatron or the Decepticons at all? Other than being a punching bag.

    - Kicked in the face in the forest battle
    - Couldn't hit three cars on an open road with a dozen missiles
    - Couldn't find 'the boy'

    Possibly the worst soldier!

    Starscream was actually like Starscream.

    Dunno how people could complain about that.

    I always thought Starscream was a bad shot though, yes?

    He shrank a lot, though. Was about the size of OP in ROTF.

    That's how tall he was in the first movie, too. Remember?

    Starscream was always a scapegoat. He is meant to be a failure so that Megatron has someone to blame and beat up for it.

    He was totally out of scale in the forest fight. This was painfully apparent when Optimus had him in a reverse grip. Starscream's cockpit was WWAAAAYYYY too tiny when compared to Optimus's cabin windows.

    These days the only thing people do is complain, disagree, argue & hate.

    I can sympathize with Megatron's frustration.

    He acted like a character named Starscream should act. Cowardly, a scapegoat, punching bag. Yep, all the criteria!

    Do not take this to be a complaining thread, please. It is a homage to the Ratchet is Useless thread.

    Useless? Does every single character have to do something vitally important to the plot? Because the number of people who believe the movie had too much going on would certainly harp about that.
