    Well since if you don't know by now Shockwave has been confirmed for Transformers: Prime and the best thign about Shockwave is Shockwave can be depicted in different ways from Megatron loyalist (Sunbow), to a logic based usurper (Marvel Comics) to a cynical psychopath (Energon) to even being a emotionally surpressed nutcase (IDW).Hell you might even want him done in a way that has yet to be done before like TFA did with Shockwave being a double agent amongst the Autobot ranks.

    So if you were the show runners which version would you go with. Me Easily the Marvel Comics version as that was the original version Budiansky intended for Shockwave to act as, plus it would give Megatron a run for his money.

    I think it would be a safe guess that he will be more of a scientist like the IDW comics since in the alignet continuity he actualy made Insecticons and the Dinobots.

    A mix of Loyalist and Marvel Comics ruthless and deviously deceitful. A Shockwave that values intelligence and respects others who do the same, but isnt afraid to get the job done for science even if it means breaking off from the normal chain of command.

    I want him to have aspects of his Marvel,and IDW in his character as an usperper of Megatron followed by aspects of him being a twisted mad scintest from WFC/FOC with an ablitly to use Psycological warefare on the Autobots. Seems like the perfect character for him in Prime.

    No loyalist yes-man Shockwave, for crying out loud. Give us the cold, ruthless, hyper-intelligent scientist/military operations commander from Marvel G1, please.

    Shockwave is one of maybe two points in all of Transformers history where the Marvel Comics version is the best that's been presented.

    So something original would be nice, but with maybe a touch of the Marvel personality.

    Something original. Getting Knock Out and Breakdown, as well as Airachnid and Dreadwing, were all fresh additions to the cast. Obviously still make him a scientist since he made the Dinobots and Insecticons (oh God here come the continuity arguments). But let's have something original for the most part (Animated Shockwave was my favorite character with WFC Shockwave being my favorite design, though).

    How about making Shockwave an expert on pyscological warefare then? I mean it does fit his character to a tee. He could figure out what each of the members of Team Prime weakness's and use it aginst them ten fold. For example make a clone out of Cliffjumper to make Arcee think she's going crazy and havng her relive her truama,Bulkhead with his fear of Scraplets,Bumblebee with his fear of losing Raf,Ratchet with his frustrations of th war getting to him and Optimus doubts if he's really a capaple leader.

    He could try to bring them down and break them thereby making them suffere greatly for him to kill off easly as opposed to Megatron's more brutal and quick methods. That to me is a more evil and vile act.

    If done well he'll be even more scarier then Airachnid and make her torture methods seem tame in comparison.

    His limited appearances in the Aligned continuity have offered us the basic outline of what we can expect - the "mad scientist" vibe that Dreamwave introduced looks to be at the fore of his character, but I also suspect we'll see a bit of the Marvel usurper too, not out of any desire to lead, but rather out of a desire to do what is best for Cybertron. If "Flying Mind" was genuinely supposed to be suggesting that the Nemesis had technology and priorities programmed into it that Megatron was not aware of, then I'm strongly suspecting Shockwave's hand there, especially since other pieces of Aligned fiction have credited him with creating the Nemesis in the first place (well, rebuilding a space station into a robot dinosaur that transforms into a space ship, but you get the picture).

    He wasn't in Energon. That was Shockblast and should NEVER, under any circumstances be confused with Shockwave.
    That being said, I prefer either the double-agent or the G1 comics character mixed with some IDW for good measure.
