I FOUND THIS REALLY INTERESTING PIECE on Tumblr.com by a user named ayries when searching through the Mikaela Banes tag and it brings up some really interesting (and fairly obvious) points about the erosion of Mikaela's character in Revenge of the Fallen and as a whole.

Mikaela was mostly picked for me as a challenge to myself. The other two characters come from canons I am very invested in and are characters who are amongst my favourites to come from, well, any piece of media in recent times: Mikaela comes from… the Transformers films. And yes, I like them and all but they are not in my ‘quality’ box, is all I’m saying.

But you know, fanfic can be very persuasive about a character. The first thing that needs to be said is: people really hate Mikaela.

It’s not really expressed in the way that a lot of character hate is from what I’ve seen, though. A lot of them would say they don’t hate Mikaela. Instead people simply dismiss her as nothing more than a ‘hot body’; as not a real character. And look, okay- the Transformers films are not known for being subtle masterpieces of character portraits, this is something else we need to get straight first.
