I am interested in what everyone's theories are on how a combiner's mind and personality work. For me I like to think that it has to due with the teammates' and the actual combiner's minds merge. So I think that the teammates' minds join and then the personality of the actual combiner (separate from the teammates' minds) joins in the mix of minds. So for Superion, the Arialbots get together well as a team, which means their minds merge well when they combine, but Superion's own personality of being bent on the destruction of the Decepticons overrides the Arialbots' minds. He is till a functional combiner, though, since the Arialbots' minds merge together so well. For Menasor, the Stunticons all hate each other, so their minds do not mix at all. Add on to that the fact that Menasor's personality is crazy, you get a completely insane gestalt. For Bruticus, the Combaticons' minds merge well because they act so well as a military unit. While most of the Combaticons are pretty smart, Bruticus's mind is not very intelligent. So end up with a combiner that follows orders well, but is to dumb to think for himself. So what are your guys' theories?
