She already has lightening and braces and her lasso. The hammer adds nothing  It may even hinder her.

So lightning is all the hammer has? I thought it could do pretty much anything the wielder wanted it to, especially if it liked them. Silly me.

Mjolnir would make WW ten times more dangerous if she used it wisely.

Definitely a clone and the fact she isn’t trying to tear out Gath’s throat means she’s probably on his side

Mind you, the Sonja and Wallace who went through hell could be the clones, for all we know...

I smell a Sonja vs Sonja battle coming up. Won’t be the first time that’s happened.

If only she’d gone to a strip club... :o

Ha, I could totally see her doing that! Sonja’s well used to brothels and harlots ... hell, towards the end of the first Dynamite run, she went undercover in a brothel disguised as a whore - her costume was basically a jewelled head dress plus her usual outfit!

I missed a few.  Think like from 6 on I just forgot about it.  Have to get the back issues.  I have picked up the stream punk ones of late.

#6 was the end of the first arc. The second storyline is Sonja travelling across America ... starts off slow but it really picks up towards the end with 3 great issues stuffed with awesome fight scenes.

I’m not gonna bother getting the trade but those last few issues are pretty fucking cool ... Sonja taking on a load of uzi-toting bikers with a crossbow in their own hideout, Sonja beating the crap out of a gang of thugs in a Vegas casino etc.

All I’ll add is that in various media and in various circumstances, Megatron states that he is well aware of Starscream’s longing to rule and of the perpetual potential danger he poses; however, all of that is outweighed by his value as Air Commander and his effectiveness in battle. That’s clearly not referring to the way Starscream’s portrayed as comic relief in the G1 cartoon of course, where even fucking *Jazz* embarrassed him once

Starscream is 2nd in command, but Soundwave is who Megatron goes to to get shit done and has so much faith in him because of his loyalty. He's way more capable than Starscream. At least it seems that way most of the time since Scream is usually incompetent.

Soundwave’s loyalty went out of the window pretty quickly in the movie once the Deceps were ob board Astrotrain. As for the question of Starscream’s effectiveness and competence and even which is second in command, that depends on whether we’re talking about the G1 comic or cartoon. In the comic, Starscream was more intelligent and kept his scheming to himself but literally had his wings ripped off in combat against Prime and was put into a coma by a single punch from Galvatron. Prime KOed Soundwave in the comic with one punch and he also got decked by Huffer and Gears, as well as getting stomped by Deaths Head ... however, Starscream ceded command of the Decepticons to Soundwave in the absence of Megatron and Shockwave

In the cartoon, Starscream is a fool but he’s strong enough to deck Megatron with a surprise punch in one episode and his null ray is probably the most respected Decep weapon after Megatron’s fusion cannon. Soundwave looks good in the initial fight on the Ark but doesn’t accomplish anything else on the show in combat and he’s little more than a mindless drone who can’t use the words ‘I’ or ‘me’. He is nothing without his tapes.

I assumed Ravage and co weren’t included in this.

I heard the Legenderry Sonja stuff is good.

I think Gath got himself an evil Sonja clone at the end of the last issue.

Soundwave’s much smarter than Starscream but Screamer is a warrior with better firepower, and is the fastest Seeker in jet mode. In robot form, these two already had a fistfight in the G1 comic and it was even.

Soundwave’s best hope would be to read Starscream’s mind to figure out his tactics but I doubt Screamer would give him a chance.

Edge to Starscream.

I think Cho’s only Sonja story was ‘Queen Of The Frozen Wastes’. That Sonja was a serious badass and it’s interesting to note some  parallels between her accomplishments and those of Cho’s Shanna. Imperial posted the scan of Shanna using her leg strength to rip off a gigantic bough and drop it on a swarm of raptors below; Cho’s Sonja ultimately defeated the evil queen and her army of yetis by prising loose a boulder and dropping it on them in the same way. Cho’s Shanna broke raptor necks; Cho’s Sonja broke yetis’ arms and snapped neanderthals’ necks with headscissors. Cho’s Shanna fought tyrannosauruses; Cho’s Sonja fought oversized polar bears.

Cho’s Sonja could move so quickly that an opponent’s eyes couldn't keep up with her and she knocked him out from the blind side while he was looking at where she was an instant earlier. She survived being choked out by an 8 foot tall berzerker warrior and she woke trapped underneath said berzerker’s corpse, she easily tossed the 500+lb body aside.

As badass and seasoned a warrior as Cho’s Sonja was, though, I still think she’d fall short against Cho’s genetic marvel Shanna. She’d struggle to hurt her without weapons. She would absolutely need to avoid close quarters combat if possible as she’d only have a fraction of Shanna’s strength ... Shanna hurled a grown man at least 30 feet with ease ... with one hand.

Like I said though, I’d give Sonja the nod over peak human Shanna or even the Shanna who turned up in ‘Savage Wolverine’

So Shanna has had another run after Wolverine?

There was a 4 issue mini series in 2016 but it’s Cho Shanna, not the 616 version. A LOT gorier than standard Marvel fare

Cho Shanna definitely beats Sonja. She’s not only stronger than Captan America but also has his preternatural fighting intellect. One of her allies in the island says he’s encountered many Tyrannosaurus Rexes over the years, has tried different methods of stopping them and only lots and lots of bullets have worked. Shanna, after easily shaking off a swipe from its tail, instinctively figures out how to beat a tyrannosaurus almost immediately. In a mire tecent series, she kills two sabretooth cats the size of polar bears - she snaps the neck of one, breaks the fang of the other and uses it to stab it through the head. She also takes on the tyrannosaur a second time, using brute strength to block and wrench it’s jaws before her buddy kills it with a grenade. Sonja could beat this Shanna with weapons but unarmed she doesn't Have a chance. Cho Shanna does stuff with her bare hands that even Conan would be proud of doing. She’s like Tarzan on Roids

Hmmm, Having read a bit more, I think Cho Shanna takes Sonja. She lacks formal fighting training but is as strong as a dozen men - more importantly, she is very difficult to hurt and is just as ruthless as Sonja, if not more so. She takes on a meat-eating dinosaur the size of a megalosaurus with her bare hands and comfortably holds her own before using a massive stake to impale it.

I still think Sonja takes Savage Wolverine Shanna ... she’s as strong as Cho Shanna and can run over 50 mph but there’s no evidence she can take the same punishment and she definitely isn’t as vicious.

Yeah, I've only read#1 so far but she easily breaks the neck of a deinonychus. Mind you, Sonja has ripped apart the jaws of hellhounds and taken on werewolves in hand to hand combat

There’s a more recent series where Shanna where she helps out a bunch of pirates stranded on her island. I don’t know whether it’s 616 but it feels like a follow up to the Cho series. In any case, Shanna wielding two machetes wipes out a small army of raptors and snaps the neck of a gigantic troglydyte ( to be fair, Sonja has broken yetis’ arms before). She steals its club and when #2 ends, she’s jumping into battle against two sabretooth cats, waving the six-foot club around like it’s a baton
