I do not understand why everyone, or at least the majority, likes Starscream? He has to be on my top 10 list of Transformers I don’t like.
Serious, could someone please clarify why he should be liked?
He’s had his moments where he’s been somewhat a good guy but they are so far apart from each other…
1. You’re “allowed” to dislike whoever you want, nobody has to prove an opinion to you or clarify why you should like or dislike a character. If someone’s opinions creep you out or annoy you, just ignore them.
2. That said, I’m confused by why there’s no indication on your post of which Starscream you’re talking about, given that they are very different from one another and what may appeal in one may not even be present in another
3. that also said, this fandom enjoys Megatron at his worst so I’m also confused by this only liking ostensible “good guys” thing
I meant mostly the Generation 1 Starscream, but I guess I meant his character in all the time lines.
I did like him, however, in Armada.
As for Megatron, I’m not sure about. I like and dislike him. Again he is one of those characters that has their moments of being a “good guy”. He used to have morals so I guess that would make him a somewhat, questionable, lawful evil. Starscream is more of a neutral evil.
Usually I try to divide the characters into the Alignment System.
I’m sorry for not being clear.
