    This is a thread to state your opinion on and perhaps debate who the best Decepticon leaders have been. You can pick any Decepticons who have lead for any amount of time in any cartoon, comic, game or movie series. You can also pick more than one version of someone. Such as picking both Prime Megatron and Movie Megatron. You can pick more than one character from one series as well. Such as Marvel Megatron and Marvel Straxus.

    In My opinion, the best Decepticon commanders were the following.

    Marvel Shockwave. I haven't read all the Marvel comics but so far he's been awesome. Beating the crap out of Megatron, capturing multiple bases of operations and creating the Constructicons. And he isn't blind to his own flaws. When Megatron gave a good argument for himself being a better leader, Shockwave stood down without argument. That's all I've read so far.

    Sunbow Galvatron. Before he went insane, he was quite capable. Scattering the Autobots, killing Ultra Magnus and generally being very bad ass. He was pretty good for the G1 cartoon.

    Beast Era Megatron. He always was one step ahead. Often his plots would be foiled due to the incompetence of his troops, not error in his plans. His speeches were also very epic.

    Cybertron Starscream. The best villain in the Cybertron series. He was the only one who got anything done. He got rid of Megatron and his followers, (for a while at least) stole the Omega Lock and survived the series, in this universe, without changing sides. Better than Megatron, Sideways and Scourge.

    So who do you think are the best Decepticon commanders?

    Of course, Movie Megatron would blow all their brains out with utterly no remorse.

    Beast Wars Megatron and Animated Megatron. They were always two steps ahead.

    He starts out awesome but becomes kind of pathetic.


    My vote would probably go to BW/BM Megatron, except he wasn't a Decepticon.

    TFA Megatron was pretty good. Maybe Sunbow Megatron.

    G1 Megatron. Before anyone kills me for my choice let me say he was the "victim" of the times when story-writing for cartoons were basically simplistic. But I will give credit where it is due. He actually ruled Cyberton during the riginal G1 cartoon run.

    Cybertron Starscream, because of my personal bias.

    Crap, I forgot Marvel Shockwave. He was great. He drove Megatron so insane, that he blew up a space bridge with himself still inside, just so he could escape Optimus Prime.

    I was always given the impression that Megatron blew up the bridge out of anger? It was issue 25 and I remembered because the opening issue was pretty intense.

    Megatron squeezing Brawl until his optics practically burst, Shockwave ducking Megatron's challenge and the showdown Predaking which Megatron won! That issue really cemented Megatron's status of Decepticon bad ass No.1 in my eyes! LOL!

    Marvel Shockwave, then TFP Megatron, then BW Megatron if he counts, then Animated Megatron.

    I guess people don't remember what a sad sack Marvel Shockwave became later on in the series.

    Yeah, that was my rationale, too.

    Marvel Shockwave, TFA Megatron and Masterforce Overlord are all contenders.

    Movie Megatron couldn't even stand up to human weaponry. Good luck trying to blow out a bunch of powerhouses' brains, Megs.

    Beast Wars and G1 cartoon Megatron. They both managed to conquer Cybertron, which to me puts those two above the rest.

    Shockwave is the logical choice.
