Wannabee, Part Two! Deathsauruss ruse has workedthe Probats believe that Cliffjumper is Bumblebee and its really smoothed over the energon negotiations! Well except for the part where Deathsaurus is now blowing Cliffjumpers cover and framing him for a crime that he didnt commit!

Loved the dialogue in this, especially how the Probats talk, and in particular Cliff's interactions with his Probat stowaway.

I liked it a lot, with the major exception that this just didn't feel like Cliffjumper. I know that personalities can (and have) change between continuities, but we have so many possible characters to use, and over 35 years those personalities kinda solidify. When I read a story with Cliffjumper in it I want it to be the guy who's gung-ho to blow up some enemies, probably with an absurdly oversized cannon. Here he's just... generically good guy, with his only defining feature that he's mistaken for Bumblebee (and might be his brother now, depending on how much you read into being 'born' at the same time). Could've just used Bumper or something.
In a way it's the reverse of the first Galaxies arc... which had good characterization but a bad story, whereas this one missed on the character but had a good story (and didn't stretch out more space than it needed to be).

I feel this is fine for a Cliffjumper that is obviously still a "kid". He's grown up in a time of peace, and has always been the "other one" between him and Bee. This might be the first time he's had anything close to actual combat. The first time he's been acknowledged as somebody. I feel that with the shit actually starting to hit the fan in the main book we'll start to see the ore usual Cliffjumper. This is something of an origin story for him.
