So im a new fan to the IDW transformers. Started reading it yesterday and so far on Transformers RiD issue 30. Various things are different from other continuities, but one of those interesting changes is Arcee's background. Starting out as genderless/"male". I think this is the first time this has ever been done with a transformers character. Making this arcee quite different then her other selves. Though I did notice the whole her not being a natural female cybertronian doesn't seem to be explored much since the spotlight comic. In some way I could see why the writers would be avoiding it. It would sure be odd for new readers for Arcee to ever be referenced with a male sounding word or mentions of her not like the other fembots. When Arcees backstory was revealed, there sure was controversy. But so far it doesn't seem like her background of having a force change has been retconed. Therefore I think over time how Arcee deals with the gender issue or more of.....his past should be explored. Such as some flashbacks to the events that led to him getting a force change by Jhiaxus. Arcee hasn't gotten her own miniseries yet, giving one to her would be an excellent opportunity to explore Arcee's earlier days. I also would like a scene where Arcee is called a "brother in arms" I know that it seems other transformers inadvertently use feminine pronouns when referencing Arcee because of the changes, but it would be nice if one of her friends is able to escape doing that. Anyways do you think Arcee's past and should be brought up more? Or do you feel that it shouldn't?
