Rung's pretty great and I think we should all appreciate that.

In both the IDW universe and all of our hearts, Rung is a powerful force for good and we should all appreciate that.

Rung is awesome and I am very disappointed at the lack of Rung in the recent LL issue.

What a wholesome thread we're starting on! Chiming in, Rung is great. I've only read about a quarter of MTMTE but I like that all our 'bots and 'cons are finally investing in some good old fashioned talking therapy. <3

I'm still waiting to get more info on his background. We know what he DOES now, but we still don't know what he IS.

I just want to know more about the original Rung, Galvatron's personal Decepticon psychiatrist in Eugenesis. Imagine what his day job was like.

I went off Rung after it turned out that the answer to "what is Rung's altmode" was "who cares because his special powers are actually from his robot mode".

This is true but I like to imagine that it's just an alternate version of our very good rung except he's somehow managed to accidentally become a decepticon phsychiatrist and he knows that trying to correct this mistake isn't worth it so he's just going with it and doing his job.

I'm pretty sure no one specified a "who cares" about his alt mode, we just don't know yet. There's a lot of stuff James Roberts introduced that people thought were red herrings but ended up being brought back later on. Ten, most recently.

Hmm, I can see why that would be disappointing but I actually think that does make him special - Functionalism reduces all Transformers to how useful their alt-modes are, so having someone special for their robot mode really breaks the mold!

Ooooh, I like your take, Becka.

Arguably that pretty cleverly ties into the themes of Megatron's backstory and put the reader in the shoes of the Functionalists too by putting so much focus on the alt-mode, when what his alt-mode is doesn't really matter compared to who he is.

That's a really cool insightful take on the Rung altmode situation. Didn't even think of it that way!

That is certainly a way that you could take it.
(I don't like it because it seems like another instance of Roberts not having characters use their altmodes when it would make sense to.)

I will admit it is a bit... odd. Like when characters are running when they have perfectly fast alt-modes.
