I liked it better when Megatron was his name and his alone; it made him a better character. He wasn't chasing after someone else's failed destiny, but was making his own. With the live-action movies making him a disciple of the Fallen and the new aligned continuity having him taking his moniker from Megatronous, I can’t help but think how stupid it was of Megatron to take the name of the guy who betrayed the Primes. What did he expect was going to happen when he went before the High Council to express his vision for the future—did they really listen to him or were they sidelined and dumbfounded by his choice of name and the old wounds tied to it? Why would he purposefully make it hard on himself by choosing a name that has a stained history? I know very little about Megatronous, can’t say that I care much, really, but why did Megatron choose this name?
