    Yeah Jazz needs to have his ass seriously beaten. That was the strangest scene in the entire last issue. I just couldn't believe I saw Jazz kill a human

    I hope the repercussions are more severe then what we just saw in the preview. At the same time, I wouldn't be surprised.

    I don't read the comics anymore, (and it would seem for very good reason) so reading this totally shocked me.

    That's because he's being written like an actual soldier, instead of a superhero.

    Prime is pretty terse with Thundercracker, but if 'cracker won't commit to the Autobots at this point then it's kind of understandable. BB was certainly courting him for long enough, and the Decepticons have now tried to kill him several times.

    In and out of universe I kind of want people to lay off Jazz. The human he killed was going to execute Bumblebee in cold blood. I wouldn't want a soldier at my side who wasn't willing to shoot to defend me.

    I guess I wouldn't either but still it feels VERY out of character for Jazz. And besides this is the exact opposite of the message the Autobots want to send. They don't want to kill humans and then try to play it off that they are to be trusted as allies against the 'cons. They already know humans are scared of all of their kind, now all Jazz has done is acted foolishly and stupidly and he's given scared humans provocation to attack the Autobots again.

    And as far as the guy killing him, BB was really getting through to the guy or at least it seemed he was. It was brash and impulsive what Jazz did. Shooting to defend and needlessly killing are 2 separate things. He could have stopped a tiny, weak, slow human a number of ways without killing him and using excessive force like that.

    I understand this too. From his POV it sure looked as thought that would have happen. At the same time though, it's not something that you would expect Jazz to do. Usually he's very cool and calm under pressure, and he always seems to be able to diffuse a situation before it escalates. I don't know...it's just weird for him out of all Autobots to do that.

    And Prime is pissed. I've never not known him not to be able to look at Jazz. And even more so he just completely ticked that Megatron has caused all this mess to happen to begin with. He's kinda scary right now. :(

    ^ The guy was packing a Megatron gun. It was a hostage situation. Humans are tiny and weak with respect to Transformers, but not slow (reflexes).

    Bumblebee can be idiotically noble and risk his life, it's totally in character for him to do so. Jazz, not as much. Remember the time he gave Sparkplug a heart attack? ;) 

    Think of BB as the hostage and Jazz as the only SWAT guy on the scene. The guy didn't put the gun down, ergo he could have fired it at any time and executed the leader of the Autobots. There was no other choice. But even though that's the rational decision, it will haunt Jazz, BB and the rest of the Autobots for a long time. And that's a really cool thing to do.

    Fuck the impossibly-squeaky-clean Autobots. It's crazy not to expect a sapient race to defend itself. Hell, human beings would walk all over them if they wouldn't.

    He didn't just shoot him, he vaporized him.

    Intense.

    I was expecting Jazz to shoot the Megatron gun in half out of his hands.

    Between OP capping Soundwave in the head and Jazz vaping a human, it was intense and very hard to top.
