    Lordy.

    In the 1986 movie, OPTIMUS PRIME WAS ABOUT TO KILL MEGATRON. He gloated over him, even- "I thought you were made of sterner stuff"? Yeah. Taunting his enemy. The only reason he DIDN'T kill Megatron was because Hot Rod got in the way.

    Optimus Prime also killed several other Decepticons, as well.

    Really? You think it's inconsistent for a person to kill his enemy and *NOT* cheer over it? Bruce Lee disagrees with you.

    Batman Begins:

    Ras al Ghul: Your compassion is something the criminals will not share!
    Batman: Thats why it's so important.

    What really stands out to me is the comic adaptation...which is based on the script itself which conveys that Megatron had no intention of harming Optimus at this point.

    Mako Crab: It's not that Rodimus isn't cheering, it is that he is whining about killing living creatures when said living creatures are murderous conquerors. Of course, I do have to give him props for killing the Decepticon.

    Honestly. Prime was just pissed and yeah anybody that would talk to a PMS'd Kentworth would just get ran over. Megatron knew this and that's why he and Sentinel Prime got whooped by the Greatest Autobot of all time.

    Optimus had to take out Megs....unlike the great novel ending but Megs was being Megs, blindsiding S.P. to kill Optimus himself...but off topic w 2 things....the B-Ray release w no special edition on the 30th ...this is gotta be a dumb thing....but I guess its so we Tformer freaks will get them both....I will.....oh and Hot Rod/
    Rodimus=horrible leader and death to G1.....

    Excellent on both points.

    He did what had to be done, and saw it unbecoming of Autobots to revel in the death of their enemies. He wasn't whining.

    I think its just a preference. I'm just not used to seeing Dark Optimus. I guess times do change.

    Prime's just a homicidal maniac in that movie. That doesn't mean he's bad necessarily. Give the guy a break.

    I don't Understand why People keep calling Optimus
    a homicidal maniac :( 

    He only Killed 5 guy on his Own(Not including drones)
    throughout All 3 movies
    the rest He either helped with or had help.

    Bumblebee Had 4 on his Own and the rest he had help with.
    Heck Brains and wheelie took down a Ship full of decepticons :tongue: 

    Everyone has their own Opinions. It's just It makes me
    Sad and Confused when People call Him that.:cry 
    But thats just My own Opinion
