Razorclaw would make his first IDW Publishing appearance in The Transformers: Stormbringer, informing Megatron on Earth of the reemergence of Thunderwing. Razorclaw seems to be in charge of the Decepticons in Megatron’s absence. Impressed by the courage of the Wreckers in battling Thunderwing, he sent a team of Decepticons to aid them, and eventually aborted the plan to destroy Cybertron (and Thunderwing with it) when Optimus Prime stopped the monster. This version of Razorclaw seems to possess a sense of warrior’s honor, respecting the courage of his Autobot enemies enough to send his forces to help them. He is still unwilling to defy a direct order from Megatron though.
