No, not the backstabbing... not the bootlicking either. I mean his other most defining trait. Cheating death. In almost every continuity*, Starscream comes face-to-face with death and somehow manages to weasel his way out of it. Not just running away from a dangerous situation to fight again another day. No no, beyond that. Indestructible mutant sparks, partial ghostly resurrections, life-sustaining Allspark shards... there's always something keeping him (technically) alive in the face of what would otherwise be his destruction. Can we expect this sort of thing to show up in the movie-verse at some point? Possibly in TF3? * = The "TransTech" and "Shattered Glass" continuities/incarnations of Starscream seem to be the exceptions.
