i know a lot of us were disappointed with the how shockwave was portrayed as just another snarling monster of a decepticon in the movies. while we see that this was likely just the creators needing another main name in the bad guys, and had not intention of character development in him. but what if there was? we saw in rising storm comics that shockwave was much more like his usual portrayals. while i know that there is no ironclad continuity between the movies an comics, perhaps there is. at the end of rising storm, shockwave is beaten within an inch of his life by optimus before being rescued by the driller. that is whys look is different between the two, but what if that is why his personality is as well. it is possible that he wound up suffering major brain damage because of his injuries, which is why is little more than added muscle in dotm. like i said, the chance of these being related are low, but obviously there is some knowledge of what is happening between the movie and comic writers. does anyone else think this might be a theory with some merit?
