Question about English (US)

Rethink vs. Think about:
The verb “rethink (or re-think)” is from the verb “think”. I see “think” is followed by a preposition like “think about/ think of” in most cases, while “rethink” is not. Let me compare “Think about the situation” and “Think about the situation again” and “Rethink the situation.” The verb “rethink” doesn’t come with any preposition in general. Why? (Probably, does “to rethink” mean “to consider” or “to review” rather than “to think again”, and that's why no preposition?)
