The Shockwave portrayed in the movie DOTM was incredibly underrated, he did not live up to the cartoon and comic versions. The original was on par with Megatron and Optimus Prime and could even defeat them on a good day. Keep in mind that both have been stated to lift 1,000 tons +
I quickly ran through DC besides tricking everyone and geting an upgrade for a short time he didnt fight much.
He whooped on Megatron ,Magnus and Optimus but he was leeching energy from a Universe so that shouldnt be much of a feat.

There's a origin that they did for the Shockwave with the IDW comics, "Robots in Disguise" #17, Shows how he was a senator
Its a good read showing him upgrading bots who he thought had a good character, including Orion Pax to carry the Matrix. Eventually the ones in control had enough of his input so they did a thing on him called Empurata
