OKay...I'm REAAAAAAALLLLLLLYYYYYY curious now. Arcee flipping out on Ultra Magnus? It doesn't look like combat training either...she looks totally pissed off.

Can't wait for this one...

Arcee is a crazy psycho bitch! She's certainly not the motherly figure she was in G1. Or the helpless doe-eyed little puppy she was in Animated. Even Energon Arcee wasn't as badass as this.

I'm figuring 1 of 2 things.

Either fresh off the assembly line and doesn't know any better, or someone screwed whith her program. After all, didn't they put something in NightBeat's head at the end of his spotlight?

Eitherway, Ultra Magnus has to stop her, and I hope thats his severed hand on the cover :D

-it's not that I have anything agains Magnus, I just love dismemberment-

Great art though!

Wow. I'm very interested to see what comes of this now... Why are Arcee and Magnus fighting? Why is Arcee a crazyperson? What revelation is to be revealed about Gender-styling of a Cybertronian exo-structure?

Magnus looks GREAT! some of these pages without the Speech bubbles would make awesome Desktops. Really can't wait to see this one.
B-)

It wouldn't be the first time Ultra Magnus was dismembered. :wink:

Man she is totally feral in this. I can't imagine she will be saying much of anything in this pages, and if Magnus is saying anything its probably.."HOLY SLAG! I just dropped a load of exhaust in my exo casing..."

Pretty awesome teaser art here... who'd think that Arcee would not only end up fighting Ultra Magnus, but seem to be holding her own?

Still passing on it, though. No matter how good the execution may end up being, the fact that the most interesting way they could think of to introduce fembots is by having the first one be a raging psycho bitch science experiment still says "giant cop-out" to me. The general idea's also been done too many times before in sci-fi.

(Though if they'd created a new character instead of warping an existing one to the point of unrecognizability, the idea might have been slightly more palatable.)

Love the artwork but I wasn't keen on the characterisation of Ultra Magnus in his Spotlight and though I'll wait and see I can't say I loike th idea of Arcee, the most prominent female Transformer as a science experiment gone wrong. Hopefully I'm wrong but so far all I've read about it so far indicates lots of shame and anger associated with female sexuality.

No I definitely need to wait and see....

Arcee looks badass, she no longer the babysitter from season 3.

I recon that she's a assassin of some sort now, just look at her moves and attacks.

Is she supposed to be a beserker? Or is she possessed?

If you look at it from the original sin perspective, it does come off quite tacky.

However, I'd propose two alternate interpretations:

1) I can imagine that what she is feeling is not far off from what the first women to break into the male dominated workplace must have felt. Shame because they were violating social norms, and anger that they were being made to feel shame unjustly.

2) Gender reversal - Cybertronians are, by nature, constructive/creative creatures. Before the war, even Megatron turned into a construction vehicle. Arcee however is clearly designed from the ground up as a death-machine. Her shame and anger at having been created to kill is akin to what some men feel, what perhaps all men feel unconsciously. Born into a world that wants us to build and create, but programmed by millions of years of evolution to take and kill.

Beautiful art.

And I sure hope Jhiaxus is already dead, or Arcee will make him wish he was.

Once Arcee finishes off Magnus, will she try to take on Fortress?

She doesn't look girly at all, but great art anyway. Can't wait to see where they're going with this whole spotlight.

Wow! So I wonder, will she "come around" by the end of the issue or still be hanging out there as a wild card? I can't wait to pick this one up.

This is what Arcee really is; a ruthless "hunter". It says it on almsot EVERY bio of her!
