Name of the Female Starscream Clone revealed!

Previously on Transformers Animated:
Starscream, wanting to overthrow his former master Megatron, had developed a new plan in his grand scheme of Decepticon domination: create a army of clones in his own image. The first attempt of creating two clones proved to be failures, but on his second attempt, he created five clones that each shared a trait of his own personality - cowardice, egomania, sycophancy, dishonesty, and a snarky Female clone that possessed unknown trait...

As time went on, each of these clones slowly gained names through other media (such as action figures). The Coward became Skywarp, the Egomaniac became Thundercracker, and the Sycophant became Sunstorm (the Liar hasn't become Ramjet yet, but given time he will). This left the Female as the only nameless clone... until now!

Recently, a panel at BotCon 2009 revealed her name to the public. It has been again confirmed at Jim Sorenson's site, the Disciples of Boltax. For those of you who don't know, he's the guy behind the The Ark and The Ark II books, as well as the upcoming AllSpark Almanac and the Complete Ark books.

Her name is...



















...SLIPSTREAM!!!

So, her name isn't Femscream, Girlscream, Shescream, Lazorwave, Airazor, SUSAN, Razormoon, Mega, Dirge, Megajet, Overlord, Thrust, or Bob Saget!

Very cool. I like it. Somehow it works. Unfortunately there will be no figure.

I thought her name was going to be something like Thunderblast or Overlord.

You know what since that the female starscream real name is reavealed they should make a action figure of her.

Slipstream, huh? Looks like GI Joe is going to be very confused on this one.
Black Starscream said,  - 2009-06-01 20:21:07
That's quite the original name. Its unique even among seekers. Some of those predicted names may have worked well like Razormoon Dirge, Megajet, or Lasorwave (which is truly peculiar), some not so much such as Femscream. Overlord would be really peculiar because that would be like naming the next constructicon Deszaras. I think Moonrazor would have fit too, but Slipstream is is quite an interesting choice.
Sabrblade said,  - 2009-06-01 20:49:24
Razormoon wouldn't work due to it being a fan name. Dirge is already the name of the Greedy Starscream clone. Megajet is too uncreative. Laserwave is the Japanese name of both G1 Shockwave and Energon Shockblast.

totally PIMP

I'm not going to say that this was a bad choice but why Slipstream? I think the name Dreadwind would have suited her a lot more appropriately. Nevertheless, it is nice to see that a character from the Armada video game was payed attention to or at least I believe that was the origin of that name, correct me if I'm wrong. Though Laserwave did have a certain ring to it, the origin of the name didn't justify the character in any manner. Also: SUSAN?!?!? Where did that name come from?

She the side of starscream that is gay and in love with megatron.
Sabrblade said,  - 2009-06-02 08:36:31
She's got no feelings for Megs. Her personality is snarkiness towards the real Starscream, as everything she says to him is an insult.
Black Starscream said,  - 2009-06-03 20:44:26
Someone here back when she first appeared suggested Slipstream was the side of Starscream that is actually a good tactician and warrior. I dunno how accurately that goes but it is plausible.
Sabrblade said,  - 2009-06-04 07:59:34
I think that might've been me. I remember thinking of something like that, with her being his tactical side.

But now I'm more convinced that she's the clone that hates her creator.
Black Starscream said,  - 2009-06-04 22:58:18
Then effectively Slipstream would thus be his treacherous side right? The one who betters anyone at anytime and acts independantly to further any and every goal.
Sabrblade. said,  - 2009-06-05 09:37:15
Well, she only acts this way towards him. It's like she has some personal vendetta towards the real Starscream. As seen how she would constantly insult and bash him in "A Bridge Too Close", and how she saw Prime flying and tried to shoot him down because she thought he was Starscream (notice that, once she realized he wasn't Starscream, she didn't shoot as aggressively as before when she thought he was him).

With anyone else, she doesn't really have a problem with. She had no objection to following Megatron, and when Omega Supreme, she acted more like a capable leader.

So it would seem that, when around Starscream, she's out to get him. But when not around Starscream, she's a tactical warrior.
Starscream said,  - 2009-07-25 11:36:31
Why is she a girl Starsream? What is she to him?
Shes maybe the girl in side him. Can anyone tell use who she is? Please tell!
