    Looking into the "Chaos" story arc, the character of the D-Void, and the late Nemesis Prime's original plan for the Expansion, I've started to wonder something...Are the Dead Universe, the D-Void, and the (Heart of) Darkness all one and the same?

    The plans of Nemesis Prime and the D-Void are very similar: Create a sort of portal(s) and have the Dead Universe merge or take over the "normal" Universe so a single entity can have mastery over everything and everyone. The major differences, though, are that Nemesis Prime wanted the Dead and "Living" Universes to be merged so Cybertronians can exert control over all worlds, while the D-Void wanted to be freed into the living Universe so it could potentially eat everything and perhaps play with life and death.

    I feel that the D-Void originally controlled Nemesis Prime in pretty much the same way it controlled Galvatron (making the Cybertronian have a highly devious and ambitious plan that actually moved the cosmic force's own desires gradually toward accomplishment in complex and deceptive ways), and while the Darkness didn't really "change" in the way Galvatron claimed it did when he emerged from the solar pool, it did change its sort of metaphysical connection toward its puppet and its methods of trying to liberate itself.

    So, what do you folks think? Any comments, different theories, etc.?

    (And if there's already a thread on this somewhere on the site, I apologize. It can be merged or deleted or whatever if you'd like.)

    You're on to something here. The D-Void and the Heart of Darkness are definitely one and the same (they said as much in the issue), with the Heart acting as a method by which D-Void could manipulate Galvatron. With that in mind, it can retroactively be assumed that the D-Void was manipulating Nemesis Prime as well.

    Actually D-Void seems so similar to Unicron in motive and method, you could almost say it's the same character.

    Which makes me wonder why they didn't go in that direction? :confused: 
    Other than Costa didn't do his research (again) and didn't know he was plagerizing an existing charcter.

    True, D-Void has a lot of similarities with Unicron, but whether or not that was some odd intention of Costa, what's done is done (although James Roberts and/or John Barber could probably reconcile this in an interesting way if either or both of them want to). So for now, it's pretty much up to forming theories and discussions on what there is in this comic continuity as the stuff comes along.
