Fun Friday Topic #1 I tried making this a weekly event on another message board, but after a few, there was little to no interest. Let's see if this message board can do better!!! (for those who did participate before, I guess you can copy and paste your answers from the other message board ) We all know Hot Rod became Rodimus Prime...FACT!!! Common belief is that Hot Rod is the Chosen One...FACT!!! The Matrix has a sense of humor...FACT!!!...uhm...nm. Why is the term "Chosen One" applied to Hot Rod? THIS IS NOT A POLL!!! -Was it the Matrix that chose him to be the one to allow Optimus Prime's death? -Was it the Matrix that prevented Optimus from killing Megatron when he had the chance, thus allowing Hot Rod to interfere and allow Megatron to deal the lethal blows? -Was he chosen by the Matrix to follow a path of events that will allow him to bring Optimus Prime back? -Was Optimus Prime destined to always die a climactic battle, and Hot Rod was chosen by the Matrix to bring Optimus Prime back regardless of who kills him? -Did the Matrix find Ultra Magnus too "old" and needed someone younger? -Was killing Unicron Hot Rod's destined one and only task? -Was he chosen by the Matrix to not get it on with Arcee? -Was he chosen by the Matrix to bring peace to the galaxy? Because Optimus would only have focused on Earth? -Was he chosen by the Matrix because no one else would have been able to cope against Galvatron's craziness? -Was he chosen by the Matrix to not be Daniel's companion? (Witwicky, not Protoman) -Was it his eagerness, courage, and willingness to do whatever it takes that got him "chosen"? -Was it something his direct ancestor did or promised the Matrix to have him "chosen"? (the Rodimus look-a-like in Five Faces of Darkness) -Was he "chosen" by the Matrix to deal with the Quintessons? THIS IS NOT A POLL!!! Use... -Logic and/or -US or UK comics' events and/or -Japanese fiction and/or -fan-fictioned and/or -seriousness and/or -hilarity and/or -creativity .........to answer. Have fun!!! Hopefully some creative person(s) would make a music video on YouTube featuring some of the fun theories from this (and upcoming) Fun Friday Topics, or make some of those "Motivational Posters"... Have a good weekend!!! See you next Friday.
