I currently reading IDW transformer, And now i am at MTMTE, around issue 23. And there are 2 thing i find it quite weird about Drift: 1, Do he relevant or not ? 2, His character kinda not consistent. 1. He have 2 comic, 1 spotlight. And also one of the rare IDW original character make it to the big crow in Age of extinction, I guess he have quite number of fan huh ? Though, i get that they may just doesn't know what to do with the character (Empire of stone is pretty much make the same statement and lesson as his first origin, a very pointless comic honestly). So in all main story line, he never seem like even have any important role than just a extra. But then MTMTE, you would think they have something for him. being the third in command and all. But no, while like almost anyone else have their story arc, he leave no impact in the story. When he take the blame for Rodimus, then the next arc end, they bring him back off screen and never mention anything. It pretty weird when i think they make a whole new design for him. 2. It also at MTMTE, When his character have bigger role. He start to show the sign of consistent personally. I don't see the same person who in his origin anymore. He somewhat act like Hot rod/Rodimus: Young, hot head, cocky, etc... Cyclonus is more of what i imagine what his character to be. Of course without the cold act, rudeness and not welcome any party. For example he in Rechat's arc, when he try to act tough and hide his fear of DJD like a manchild and later beg for be kill to show how scary DJD.
