    i dont know why but its allways annoyed me that omega supreme is considerd the last line of defence for the autobots even though metroplex and fort max are more heavily armed and are more mobile

    It's a real arse getting a city up and fighting. It means all sorts of meetings about disruption to travel routes, committee's about noise pollution and all sorts.

    Getting a space shuttle to come and do the job is just easier...

    There's also the fact that Omega was around before metroplex and Fort Max was built.

    Plus Fort Max and Metroplex need outside initiation to get moving (Metroplex would only transform when ordered to with Autobots inside controling his systems and needing another robot to become the head can be detrimental sometimes.

    I think mostly just because Omega was the first really big guy.

    Because Fortress Maximus and Metroplex weren't out yet.

    Just like how Devastator was the ultimate Decepticon.

    ...Until Predaking who was the ultimate Decpepticon until Piranhacon.

    It's nothing more than marketing.

    Also because Metroplex and Fortress Maximus didn't hang around and defend the Ark.

    omega is definetly more mobile than maximus and metroplex. like others have said he can transform quicker and doesn't need other 'bots to help them.

    but don't let him catch sight of a constructicon. he'll go into a blind rage, and then you're shit outta luck.

    Because when Omega Supreme was named such, there was no Metroplex or Fort Max.

    The real world reason is becasue at the time, Omega was the biggest Autobot toy there was. Storywise, Metroplex and Fort Max didn't exist yet.

    This.

    And this.

    On the other hand, if you go by his original bio entry, Omega Supreme is still stronger than Metroplex... possibly Fort Max too. I always like to see him that way... he's not as complex, not as smart, not as versatile as some of those other guys... he's just TOUGH and will never quit.

    Of course, on the G1 cartoon, they constantly had to come up with reasons why Omega had to quit, since having him around really limited the amount of danger the Autobots could find themselves in. Hence "oooooh... I'm out of fuel" or "Ooooooh... I'm too damaged, have to wait here" etc... :)

    Omega was @ first the last line of defence(mind you! it depends WHERE you mean last line of defence?...EARTH?, CYBERTRON? or Crystal City(YES! i know that was on cybertron!) in terms of EARTH! he was! till Metroplex took over(Grrr Jobstealer(shakes fist!)) & we all know that he defended Crystal City till it was destroyed by the Constructicons & Robosmasher! but! i can only hope that Omega does return in either one of the live action films or TF Prime.

    Not to mention the logical fallacy with putting your giant, unbeatable super-warrior on your "last line of defence". If nobody can stand up to Omega, how about putting him on your FIRST LINE OF ATTACK, so you can get the job done, and not worry about ever getting to your last line of defense. :) 

    That's why the Autobots were always on the run... they were psychologically fighting a losing battle all the time.

    Maybe the Autobots were just Genre Savy, if they beat the Decepticons, they'd be unemployed.
