    people i got a question.

    how would it go over with the fanbase if idw explored an else worlds storyline that was set in the g1 continuity in which optimus prime, ultra magnus and megatron knew one another in the time leading up to the great wars due to their haveing lived, fought, worked and trained alongside one another as peace officers throughout the earliest years of the life only to have an event change them in such a way that it basicly had the 3 parting ways with one another under a rather violent set of circumstances

    with megatron's life going in such a direction that he has lost all faith in the justice system as a former peace officer that he himself literally takes the good fight to the streets dishing out his own brand of justice ala punisher

    with optimus going in such a direction in life that he his idealism and moral political and social beliefs lead him to become the next prime ala captain america

    with ultra magnus being the one cought in the middle as he attempts to counterbalance optimus primes enthusiasm limited viewpoint and ideals with megatrons unconventional and in some part unacceptable methods of fighting the good fight for justice.

    when it comes to his eventually being able to look beyond, how shall i say this, optimus's inability to properly see the entire true greater picture

    basicly people magnus would be the one attempting to find some rational and acceptable balance between optimus and megatrons methods views , beliefs and ideals with his eventually going on to inheirit the role of prime from optimus due to optimus stepping down in the belief that magnus is truly the more suitable candidate for being the current prime.

    Sounds like a decent enough story. I'd like to read one like that someday.

    Hard for me to imagine those guys taking these types of rolls, but I'd read this type of story because if it's done properly it could have multiple spinoffs which would provide more depth to the already existing Transformers stories.

    We already have a first elseworlds volume, its called Hearts of Steel.

    Now if IDW would just expand on this Evolutions deal a little more...

    This is reminiscent of the story of Beast Machines with Hippy Prime and facing off against Megatron with Cheetor in the middle.

    I really like the concept, and I think it would be interesting to see it done with Megatron, Magnus and Prime.

    If we're talking Elseworlds concepts, I'd really like to see a story in which Megatron is viewed as good. It would be difficult, but I think it's possible to set it up right.

    Agreed, Hearts of Steel started pretty good, but went off a cliff :horse:  But I'm waiting for more examples of this.

    IDW has said "no more Evolutions until after the movie stuff" now that that's all over, I reckon we'll see the end of Devastation and then another Evolution in the gap between Devastation and Revelation.

    ALso there are cryptic hints to "something big" coming from the likes of Chris Ryall and Simon Furman, so it's possible Evolutions is what they're referring too.

    when it comes to my idea story wise i could actually see megatron, dion, and orion being brothers in the litiral family sense with megatron being the one who first figures out the whole corruption matter and in their attempt to alert the higher authorities to the matter megatron, dion and orion would find themselves becoming the victims of a high scale political hitjob with dion and orion being the 2 left in critical condition while recovering from the hit job done on them and megatron festering in his greif, anger, rage,and hate deciding that he would direct his wrath at the criminal element in general and especially at those responsible for having put his brothers in their near death state with the whole event leading megatron into the whole punisher role.

    damn that would be awesome especially if megatron gained a sixshot style body throughout the storyline.

    you know come to think of it that could quite possibly be the perfect body for megatron to have for the story with it being an in progress like approach in his eventually building his body up into being a sixshot like body over time
