    Anyone know why Megatron had screamer as second in command?
    I mean out of all the cons he has:
    shockwave,laserbeak,blackout, soundwavem, barrciade (soundwave in particular), etc. , why starscream? He's a coward and if the comics are true and he shot the ark, why him?

    I like to think that Megatron doesn't know Starscream shot down the Ark.

    Starscream has the best combination of intelligence and fighting ability.

    Soundwave gathered all that information and is a good strategist, but couldn't kill Bumblebee when he had a gun pointed at the back of Bumblebee's head at point-blank range.

    Shockwave is a brute...incredibly strong but not particularly calculating (I'm talking movieverse here). More of a shoot first, ask questions later type of fighter.

    Probably, he's just a coward when the Bots are there. If he's just with the Cons, he's got balls of steel (no pun intended).

    Starscream: So, when Sentinel left Cybertron, it was to defect...

    Megatron: He was meant to rendezvous with me here on Earth before fate way lay us both.

    Starscream: Excellent strategy... (Huh, that Ark kind of rings a bell. Didn't I...? ... Oh shit...)

    Because he's psycho and only affraid of Megatron? :) 

    Even tho he wasn't my favorite, I think his alt. mode was awesome and I really didn't want him to die in DOTM.

    For a coward, Screamer doesn't do much running away, much less in the "oh god, a minor nuisance! RUN!" fashion.

    Starscream is an incredibly effective combatant, at least when in air, and managed to outlive the majority of the Decepticons (including Megatron himself)... which actually makes him one of the most successful Cons in the series.

    You ever watch Bleach? Probably the same reason Shinji chose Aizen to be his lieutenant: to keep an eye on him because he's an untrustworthy, back-stabbing prick.
