    Wait, I thought Megatron and Prime ruled Cybertron together? That was backstory from the movie, was it not?

    Is this a one-off book or will there be a TPB down the line? I can't find any of the prequels except for 'RoSS' so I'm beyond out of the loop here.

    Isn't that what it basically says in the description?
    Megatron handles the military/law enforcement side of ruling and Optimus handles the civilian side.

    edit:Wait. Just saw the comic preview.
    And now I am confused.

    The Prime thing is indeed very confusing...Wonder what's going on there.

    Maybe Prime will rise up to become Megatron's equal after this story? I do think that's a bit weird though, I think the TF1 preview comics seemed to hint that they had always been equals, thus the whole 'brothers' calling.

    I don't think it's too weird to think that Cybertron once flourished..somewhere before the great war started in any TF continuity there must have been a time of peace. The only thing that will be really weird right now is that Megatron, in this continuity, supposedly rules Cybertron to some form, and Prime doesn't (yet)?..Also, no Prime lineage?

    He just called Megatron "Sir", more of a pleasantry than acting as a subordinate.

    Doesn't seem to me that he was calling him sir as a pleasantry. Then again we need more than five pages to determine the hierarchy there.

    I agree, the whole "it horribly goes wrong" thing confirms my suspicions that megatron will do a deal with the devil in some way. I just hope they dont make Megatron out to be an overtly nice chappie who enjoys energon tea, corrosion crumpets and a game of transforming chirades with prime (Megatron: "what am i?" *transforms* Prime: "Ooh, Ooh, I know, a Lamp post? Ummm, Drainpipe? LAMP-POST! LAMP-POST!") before he gets corrupted. He's still got to be a bit of a git.

    Sorry, it doesnt *confirm* my suspicions, it merely adds fuel so my speculative fire.
