Okay, so we all know that in other continuities, energon is the resource which fuels the Cybertronian war, and it is a substance that is scarce on Cybertron. Also established in most continuities is that energon can be refined out of crude fuels found on Earth, ranging from oil to solar and even hydro, geothermal and wind energy. Prime seems to differ in that, surprisingly, there are massive deposits of crude energon present on earth, apparently so massive that entire underground mines large enough to hide the entire Decepticon forces exist. Am I misinterpreting this? Are the transformers referring to some sort of mineral that can produce energon when they use the word, or is it actually energon itself? Further, how will this be explained? Does it bother anyone? At the moment I'm fully capable of suspending disbelief and am ambivalent, but I was wondering what others think.
