Jhiaxus was the protanganist in Transformers : Generation 2. He was part of a (wait for it) second generation of Transformers that arose during the Autobots and Decepticons exile from Cybertron. These second generation Transformers had rediscovered the reproductive process of Transformers (think celluar division) and created thousands and thousands of new Transformers. Jihaxus was a Decepticon warlord who joined the new Cybertronian empire that spread out across the universe. In IDWs continuity, he's an amoral scientist and part of the original Ark crew under Nova Prime that discovered the Dead Universe.
Overlord is the dual Godmaster Destron from the Japanese series Masterforce. He was a lifeless Transector machine piloted by the humanoid 'engines', Giga and Mega. In IDWs comic continuity he is a Phase-Sixer, brought in at the end stage of the Decepticons Infiltration protocol to wipe out a given planet's population so the Decepticons can move in and strip the planet of its resources and/ or Cyberform it. Overlord abandoned his post and expected Megatron to give chase. He didn't. Overlord has since tried to grab Megatron's attention by staging ever more horrific war crimes against he fellow Transformers.
Thunderwing was the local Decepticon commander on Cybertron in Marvel's continuity who came up against the renewed Autobot offensive, following the return of Bumblebee, Jazz and Grimlock to Cybertron. Thunderwing had an affinity for the Matrix and sought to use its power to defeat the Autobots. Sadly for Thunderwing, the Matrix had become corrupted by the time he came to possess it, and the Matrix possessed him. He was destroyed as the Matrix creature tried to possess Unicron. In IDWs continuity, he was part of a small group of Decepticons whom developed Pretender technology. Merging with his new outer shell drove Thunderwing insane and he levelled the planet Nebulous and IIRC, the resultant forces unleashed by Thunderwing also left Cybertron a barren husk (although its been a very long time since I read Stormbringer).
