One of the things I like about TFA is its treatment of the Autobot Supreme Commander position. It may seem weird talking about a TV show about giant changing robots involved in protecting Detroit from other robots and costumed supervillains, but Ultra Magnus is a much more "real" SC thana ny of the previous Commanders we've seen on TV. Magnus isn't a superhero (Like Star Saber, Original Optimus, Fort Max, UT Optimus or most of the others) He seems to be a very big picture kind of person. For him Earth is just one planet out of the MANY that he's stuck protecting. He's had to make some very cold-hearted decisions in doing his duty (The Jet twins, Omega Supreme), but he strikes me as the type of leader who can make some very difficult decisions. For this i'm hoping that Optimus actually DOESN'T become Supreme commander, as he still seems more like a Hero, than a big picture commander.
