Why did Galvatron seem to respect Magnus more than Rodimus?

    In the early series, Rodimus was the leader...but Galvatron was more fixated on Magnus. I got the impression he didn't think much of Rodimus as a leader and often underestimated him (because of his youth/lack of experience).

    The movie and the series were opposite...in the movie, Magnus was made somewhat lame even though imposing. Hot Rod was the "chosen" one, although no one knows why.

    In the series Magnus seemed more like the leader, Rodimus a 'tricked up' wannabe. Likeable, but not remarkable in any way.

    Galvatron treated Magnus more like the ""real" Autobot leader, even after Prime got the matrix. Interesting.

    Cause Magnus was more like Prime (or at least was suppose to be after his death) so I guess comparativley speaking he thought he would be a worthy successor and worthy advisary.

    With Rod, I think he beside himself that he let the lil' ***** take the Matrix and chin check repeatedly. Like hes probably still in denial that he got checked and let him be the leader.

    This can be explained by two things.
    1. Post movie Galvatron was bats--t insane.
    2. Devastator stood up inside Astrotrain.

    I checked out a couple of transformer main sites and databases...there's a possibility that Magnus and Prime were brothers. (not confirmed) This is the first I remember hearing about that!

    It's best to take the 'brother' appellation where TFs are concerned as metaphoric - more than likely it was used to explain why certain TFs shared the same basic body template. It goes all the way back to the old Marvel comic, where Frenzy and Rumble considered themselves 'brothers'; even Sideswipe and Sunstreaker have been considered 'brothers', even though in G1 only their alt-modes are the same. In Optimus and Magnus' case, Dreamwave played it up when they had G1 Magnus shed his outer 'trailer' armor, since the cab on the G1 toy is a white deco of Optimus.

    Anyway, back on-topic, even if he hadn't gone ca-ca, Galvatron probably could never respect some [email protected]$$ who got a lucky shot at him, which is what Series Rodimus came off as, as opposed to Movie Rodimus, at least IMO.

    Did a little more checking into other Transformer series on the brother angle between Prime and Magnus...seems like in one series there was an OMEGA PRIME who was the ultimate autobot merge between Magnus and Prime. Man, I would''ve LOVED to have seen that in the G1 series! Supposedly he was stronger than Fortress Maximus. And he licked the other gestalts with no problem. Duh!

    Ultra Magnus was sold as the Autobot Counterpart (City Commander) to Galvatron in the toyline.
