Fascinating insight about Sludge... that is, as usual, briefly addressed and then never brought up again.

I realize Sludge is kind of a flat character, but Fall of Cybertron gave him a reason to be angry at Grimlock, and that's just being swept under the rug. As nice as it is to know Scott has thought about all this, it's a shame to see it resolved without ANY substantial character conflict.

I think it's a bit of a leap to say everything is resolved now between Sludge and Grimlock. The first issue did a pretty good job of presenting Grimlock as massively unstable, even compared to previous Grimlocks. That means at some point in the future he won't be so understanding when Sludge doesn't listen, and then we'll see that anger come boiling over. Plus, it wouldn't really make sense for these two to come to blows this quickly just because an Insecticon makes fun of Sludge when they've been successfully keeping themselves in check for so long. Just give it time.
