    Well, the Fallen was already in command. So, why bother saying this line?

    Megatron was more of a military commander, like a top general or something. The Fallen was more like a president... or better yet, a messiah.

    Well, Starscream was leading until the Fallen appeared, but Megatron just has a big ego and thinks everyone was still following a dead guy. Well, some were, such as the characters in Veiled Threat that rebelled against SS to go revive Megs.

    I'd guess that it's more like Megatron is the "prime minister" while the fallen is the "queen".

    Megatron is the war commander and the Fallen is the president, but a bad president that doesn't do anything, so basically the Fallen is George Bush

    Don't understand the President and Prime Minister examples. The Fallen is more of a King or Tyrant, or Dictator. And to continue what most have already said, Megatron is like a First/Grand General.

    I had always wondered why Megatron or Starscream didn't just betray the Fallen while he was 'down' and take over. But I think they recognized him as posessing the power needed to restore the Decepticon Military. Shown as such when the Fallen is defeated--Megatron shows shock and dismay at his death instead of walking away while the Fallen was alive but beaten (I think that's how the comic/novel went? Prefer the movie version better).

    I took it to mean that he was in charge of the military forces.

    I just took it as Megs being a pompous ass and that he thinks no one can lead the Decepticons as well as him.

    Megatron is just a bada$$. He can say whatever he wants........

    Sure he is. He just has more power to force people to vote for him.
