Recently just rewatched the whole Beast Wars cartoon, and also recently just reread the Unicron arc of IDW1. Maximals and Predacons got sandbagged HARD. I mean, I can get if maybe a few characters get some adaptational villainy, but ALL of the Maximals being evil mooks? All of the Predacons being jobbers? Everyone on Eukaris getting iced after maybe one or two issues of spotlight in Windblade? I didn't think much of it at the time, but in hindsight it feels, I dunno, disrespectful? Edgelord material? And a couple years after the lackluster 20th anniversary no less. If this was in an unimportant one-off universe then no big deal, but in a mainstream universe? Here's hoping IDW2- and Hasbro- treats Beast Wars better for the 25th anniversary next year.
