    He comes across as a "bad guy" to me.

    Be careful with the political analogies. We've got a no politics rule for a reason.

    And I'd say it's definitely possible that there are shades of Spartacus in Megatron in Exodus. He starts out as a gladiator and kicks off a rebellion that exposes a massive amount of corruption among the ruling senate.

    I'd say that there is a definite inspiration in there - intentional or not. It's a pity Exodus turned Megatron into something closer to his traditional depiction later on with the whole anger thing - I quite liked the inspiring freedom fighter far more than the warlord who kept his troops loyal by getting them hooked on Dark Energon.

    Sounds like there's shades of Magneto in there. Starting out with good intentions but eventualy becoming the very thing you were fighting against.

    I think you fell for his lies - he's like Milton's Lucifer in that respect. He wanted to be the Prime, he admitted himself that all he wanted to give the low castes was a sense of importance that Sentinel/the High Council/Guilds did not. Taking Megatronus rather than Vector or Prima's name was a big clue. As Jazz pointed out in Megatron and Orion's conversations, he had a temper issue - a desire to fight anyone for his beliefs - which was clearly the reason he was not Matrix material, and his murder of Sentinel's spies showed him nothing more to be a depraved monster. Tragic yes, but no less than any bad person, although one can blame the Council for creating this monster with the caste system.
