    No, no, not a what if Batman was in the Transformers Universe.

    I just got the complete Batman: The Animated Series on DVD.

    In Volume 2 in the epiosde Heart of Steel (1 & 2) there is a company/factory that is called Cybertron. The episode centers around robots and what not.

    There is also commentary on part 2, but sadly no one mentions where they got the term Cybertron from. I would assume it was from G1, but you never know.

    The writer of the episode is Brynne Stephens, so maybe she had a thing for Transformers back in the day??

    Anyway, I just thought I would point this out to people, because I thought it was pretty cool/funny when I was watching the show. And if you are at all a fan of the series, I highly recommend picking up the set. You can get the whole series for about $100 brand new at deepdiscount.com with the 20% off sale!

    Paul Dini, one of the guys pretty much responsible for the Batman Animated series wrote an episode of Transformers, 'The Dweller in the depths'. So this was a nod to that, more than likely he asked the writer to shoehorn in the name Cybertron as an in joke.

    And you didn't ask, but I'll say anyway, Paul Dini also wrote a bunch of He-man episodes, including the one that features Teela's origins, which was a pretty good episode as I recall.

    Interestingly enough, Bob Skir and Marty Isenberg wrote "His Silicon Soul", the sequel episode.

    Batman: The Animated Series is hands down, the finest animated series ever produced.

    I still think it's wild that Hamill did the Joker's voice. He did such a good job.

    QFT. Hamill's Joker is absolutely amazing. He captured the psychotic nature of the Joker while still making him a laughing, raving lunatic. It awes me every time I hear it.
