    Continuing this comparison thread....

    Starscream, everyones favorite scheming backstabber......

    With the introduction of Animated Starscream let's compare him to his previous versions.

    Coolest Version:
    Generation 1 of course, and then we had Cybertron Starscream who was an oversized egomaniac compared to the previous ones.

    Animated Starscream gets in the list of cool versions cause he just looks a bit cool and had a few plans that worked out well....maybe. At least he gave us more Clones...some which were funny.

    Lame Version:
    Energon Starscream....he is unworthy of that name....
    Armada Starscream, he was a emo....that's all I have to say about him....he was slightly cool but still sucked.


    I'm not sure if I want to put any of the bayformers in the list....

    I'd rank Armada Starscream as the coolest. He was kind of like Dinobot Lite, and probably the best character to come out of Armada. Additional props to Cybertron Starscream, the most competent of the lot.

    Lamest was easily G1. A whiny little opportunist with massive delusions of grandeur and absolutely no skill or backbone to back up his ambition. Energon was fairly pathetic, too, but he really doesn't even count as a character.

    After watching Animated I can't help but wonder why Michael Bay didn't get Tom Kenny to play Starscream!

    Ahem! Anyway, the coolest Starscream ever is G1, with Animated and Movie vying for second. I just couldn't get into Cybertron at all. Including Starscream.

    Cybertron and G1 Starscream get my vote for the best. Most of the others are whatever, I don't see any as the worst.

    Animated and movie compete for the top spot, though I have to admit that the latter is only because of the awesome RoS depiction.

    Lamest has to be Energon, Starscream in name and looks only.

    For the coolest, either Cybertron or Movie. Armada comes in third.

    Energon Starscream is easily the lamest.

    Well, Armada is what started my love of Starscream, so he's pretty cool. Cybertron too.

    Animated and G1 are basically the same. Loud mouthed cowards who get slagged because of it. So they're really lame.

    Best - Tie between G1 and Animated.

    Worst - Energon. Starscream with no ambition or will of his own. Weakest version ever.

    Animated only because his character has a bit more attitude than the prior incarnations. Movie version was non-existant, G1 was just fine until he started to really become more coward than leader, Energon and Armada were meh.

    Energon is the lamest, because it's not F&%^$ing Starscream.

    Best - Well I liked all the other ones to be honest. Armada Starscream was a spin of him if he was a bit nobler.
    Cybertron Starscream whomped through the Autobots and threw small children to nigh certain doom in his quest for power, so I enjoyed him.
    G1 was great for all the quotes he dropped and establishing his immortal spark. (although he was written wildly inconsistent)
    Animated Starscream is a little of all the best of Screamer so far, although he has the ability to back up his plans way more this time (and he is written consistently)
    Movie Starscream is great because he is a tactical fighter and pretty powerful. And Reign of Starscream has made me like him even more. I hope they portray him this well in ROTF.

    This is surprisingly hard.

    I'll go with Animated SS as the best, because of the Seeker army. Cybertron SS is a close second though, and many others close behind.

    Since again, I'm trying to pretend that the live action move never happened, I'll go with G2 Starscream. He became a one dimensional character and didn't do much else.

    This one isn't quite so open and shut, but I'm disqualifying Energon Starscream as he was again never portrayed in Superlink as Starscream, but as Nightscream, a new character.

    coolest: g1, animated, and movie are all pretty cool in their own ways. I haven't watched enough a/e/c or rid to comment otherwise.

    Best: G1 Starscream when he's actually doing something cool, such as the Bruticus episode or throwing Megatron out of Astrotrain.

    Worst: G1 Starscream when he's being really weak and spineless.

    Also worst: Movie Starscream. He was just...a non-character, really...

    Best is a tough call since a lot of series have found really good ways to make the ego manic backstabber work well.

    Worst I'm giving to the movie because it's one of the few times that Starscream didn't have anything to say. I also couldn't ever tell if he had a smirk on his face or not given the design and without the arrogent smirk it's not Starscream for me.
