Ah, so your favorite BotCon Shadow Striker moment is one you made up.
Er, it's not though? Check the Wiki. If you mean the part about her death, it's a reasonable assumption to make given what information is available. Even if she didn't die that wouldn't make her actions any less noble.
Shadow Striker (Universe) - Transformers Wiki
Oh, I know about that. I wrote that.
All we know about Shadow Striker is that she doesn't escape Unicron and her sister looks sad. There's absolutely nothing to suggest she died honorably. There's nothing to suggest she died dishonorably, either. We know very, very little about BotCon Shadow Striker. Her arc is "Woo fireworks --> whoops Unicron made me evil --> oh huh I guess my story ended off-panel somehow"
I mean, you can headcanon that Shadow Striker died honorably so that everyone could escape. I like it! It's an idea. But I wouldn't say that's the version of her that's ... not fanfic. Because that's literally fanfic!
Right, admittedly it's been awhile since I read the 3H comics but I think it should say something that for as little as BotCon Shadow Striker contributes she's still superior to a 'main' character bearing the same name.
I'll gladly admit to being incorrect about that though. Not sure why this is a topic you appear to be getting somewhat testy about.
I guess he is confused, as am I, why you are judging a new character from a practically none existing version. It's boba fett syndrome.
If you mean the one from the newest IDW continuity I'm simply judging her based on the shitty Cyberverse character, which she's evidently based on. If you mean BotCon's SS there's definitely more to her than Boba Fett, maybe not as much as there probably should be, but Boba Fett had basically nothing and just looked cool (at least in the original trilogy).
Gotta say, Fico Ossio is doing a great job of matching Malkova's style.
The art is really not a good time on this one unfortunately. Thank God Ruckley\'s Sky Lynx is serviceable.
Here we are in June and still no Transformers/Back to the Future #4
At this point IDW why even bother to release it
