    I' pick Shockwave. He was competent while also having an interesting personality trait.

    Starscream's story is so consumed with trying to take charge that I never get to see what he would do when he gets there.

    Soundwave is a follower; most awesome follower ever, but still not a leader.

    Ratbat is more concerned about oil and has sadly almost always played second fiddle to Soundwave and laserbeak. Stingy fuel sucking vampire? Yes. Overlord over all decepticons? I don't really see it.

    Finally, Megatron was pretty incompetent in g1 until the reboots. He always seemed to be more of a good fighter than a good leader to me. So good, that everyone but Starscream is too afraid to tell him how much his planning stinks.

    Therefore, Shockwave is the only logical choice. \({*})/

    Oh, two more things. One if possible, this thread would go better if you added a poll. Two, along with Bossprime's suggestions, you also forgot Thunderwing and Skorponok off the top of my head.

    I'd go with Bludgeon. The only reason he didn't win is 'cuz The Last Autobot came outta frickin' nowhere to stop you, and when you need a friggin' demi-god to stop ya...

    Megatron. Shockwave would be a good candidate if he didn't allow himself to be outmaneuvered by Megatron. Shockwave by the end of the Marvel Comics series is reduced to a pretty pathetic and whipped customer.

    Soundwave was a pretty good leader in the UK comics. Competent, but more moderate than Megatron or Shockwave.

    Bludgeon was kind of cool but a complete idiot. Starscream was a leader of nothing.

    I lost interest in the Marvel comics sometime into the third volume of the current release so I never saw Ratbat, Soundwave or Bludeon. But from what I did read, I'd easily pick Shockwave.

    Look, the only thing that kept Bludgeon from achieving final victory over the Autobots was a LITERAL ACT OF GOD. Kept the cons going afterwards until his death and Megatron leading them into near-extinction, took out an Autobot using his sword telekinetically, thought up the plan that drew the creation Matrix within Decepticon grasp... He deserves a spot on the list.

    Galvatron was batshit crazy, though, and that's not always the best thing for a leader, even a tyrannical one.


    Not gonna lie here. Even though I knew it was "fake", Bludgeon still scared the scrap outa me throughout my childhood, even down to the colours or name that had nothing to do with Transformers.

    If that's not an enlistment of fear, I dunno what is.
