Little help? Sorry.

Over the last 25 years the Transformers have appeared in media from the exquisite to the scribbled and been licensed to the responsible and the... Pat Lee. Discussion of all the branches of TF media within!

Hey all, I know I've asked this before, but I believe my little list went the way of my Thalia Hershey's Cajeta Elegancita wrapper and is likely on it's way to a landfill right now. Grr.

So, provided anyone's up for it once more, by the end of Generation 2 in Marvel, who was dead and basically stayed dead?

Muchas gracias to Mob for the Sig, proving why he's called 'King'.

The "i" in "Señior" from "Señior's Covenant" is intentional and part of a stupid & cheesy inside joke from '02. Thank you for your concern.

Some of this is contentious, but on-screen deaths basically compromise:
Issues #1-6
Fort Max
Hotspot
Red Alert
Mirage? Is he seen again?
Darkwing gets shot but is later seen recovering
Bludgeon
Tantrum
Issues #7-12
Skullgrin (plus others)
Runamuck
Quake
Stranglehold and...dunno who that is next to him. He looks pretal fatalised though.
Ironhide?
Smokescreen
Inferno (building fell on top of him)
Slapdash? Joyride? One of the two, anyway. Joyride, I think.
The Combaticons? Did Starscream really take them all out?
Razorclaw
Jhiaxus, of course
Ramjet
Frenzy (I don't buy this one)
Slingshot
Slag
Dirge
Nightbeat
Optimus Prime (again, although he came back, again)

Not to mention the whole of San Francisco, and loads of random G2 Decepticons, humans, aliens and ape-goat men...and of course Override, Brawn, Chase and Steeljaw
I would have waited a ******* eternity for this!!!!

Octopunch was killed during Megatron's attack on Jhiaxus troops, too. And Crankcase, bought it too on this occasion, I think he was the one next to Stranglehold. Battletrap didn't look too good when Starscream carried him back into ship. Both Slapdash and Joyride looked like they were finished during the series. And there's this Cybertronian named Mindset.

The whole death thing is far too wooly in Transformers. Many characters in g1 suffered similar fates but were not classed as dead, just deactivated. I expect many of those who died in g2 could also be classed as deactivated, bar those consumed by the swarm...

I prefer the whole 'down, but no out' thing. Lends more weight to when a character actually snuffs it.

Ramjet is in Alignment, which gives weight to that theory...Actually, isn't Razorclaw mentioned as well?

And even then, at the end the Swarm was shown to be filled with the precence and joy of the Matrix/Primus. Surely it would have rebuilt those it immediately consumed, like Op, right?

Also, the Combaticons were slagged?

i tend to think no. the only reason they could build prime was because he was still alive, having been "awash with matrix energy" or somesuch... that was why he had survived being consumed. for the likes of the others that had already been gobbled up, they were already dead and gone, unfortunately.

Although never seen or stated (only remnants of Octane are clearly visible aboard the Warworld) it is implied by their sudden dissapearance?
