    As you know there are people on TF websites that "If the Autobots were super heroes,which Autobot will be the counerpart to Spiderman?" Confused? I'll start off with the Animated cast. Sorry if I get a little Marvel biased

    OP= Captain America
    Ratchet= Dr. Strange? (The only superhero who is a medic to my knowledge)
    Prowl= Batman or Daredevil
    Bulkhead= Colossus (Way clumsier than the Thing)
    Bumblebee= Spiderman

    Megs=Dr. Doom
    Starscream= Green Goblin?
    Blackarachnia= Rouge- How she is at the start of X-Men Evolution or the new series coming this fall
    Lugnut= Firepower- A mechanized Hulk
    Blitzwing= Crimson Dynamo?
    Lockdown= Bullseye

    And for a certain superhero movie goers
    Jetfire= Iron Man

    I think it's rather Sentinel Prime who is closest to Captain America. Sentinel got the shield, the blue-ness, and seems patriotic enough.
    Bumblebee would rather be like that young speedster hero, that younger version of the Flash, don't remember the name (he appeared once in the Teen Titans-cartoon).
    Now, Optimus Prime I rather see as Spiderman. He uses Grappling Hooks, isn't that very much confident, but still helps even if humans are scared of him, he's very reflective when he's alone, like Spiderman, isn't afraid to go one on one against much bigger enemies (like Starscream and Megatron), and he does use taunts. Of course, Optimus Prime uses an axe, whereas Spiderman doesn't, but that's the only disconnect I see.

    At least, that's my opinion.

    I don't really se all that many superhero-ness in any of the Transformers taht wasn't there in past TFs.

    Even Sentinel has become less Captain America since he doesn't use the sheild much the same way and his big trick is, well, he basically becomes a knight. Even so, I don't think Optimus Prime would be Captain America anyway since they share little to nothing in common. (The biggest difference being that Optimus doesn't suck)

    I meant personality wise Prime = CA and both of their deaths are quite controversial

    What? Captain America died? Really? Meh, who cares. If Superman dies, his death has a lot more significance to the other superheroes (till he gets better).
    In that regard, Optimus Prime would therefore rather be Superman, as his death affects everybody, but he gets up from the dead, and everything's fine again. :D

    But Prime was only dead for like a minute and 15 seconds.

    Also, Cap America died? Yay.

    Yeah Prime is more like Superman, who is this father figure for all mankind.

    I would see Thundercracker as Harry Osborn Goblin ( You knowing doubting about his villainy.) Also, Night crawler is a good guy.
    Animated Prime= X-men Evolution Cyclops
    Grimlock= Wolverine
