    will it be Ultra Optimus or Optimus Magnus. In my fan fiction i call him Sentinel Magnus but I was wondering, Or would it just be Ultra Magnus for everyone, most options seem illogical in some fashion, so what do you guys think?

    Well, TF lore shows Magnus is the name of the character like Optimus is the name of Optimus.

    So ULTRA is the title... but they do call him 'commander' so it is possible that Ultra could have a totally different meaning and his real title is "Commander Magnus"

    I think in the Animated 'verse, he'd be Ultra Optimus. Magnus is Magnus's name (I believe)so the Ultra is his 'rank'.

    When was this revealed?

    I think 'Magnus' works better as a rank than 'ultra'. So Optimus Magnus he would be.

    Well Magnus is a name (in Denmark it is)... I don't think Ultra qualifies as a name.
    I think he out of loyalty to his comrades in arms he will remain Optimus Prime.... and frankly it means "the biggest and the best"... you can't really top that anyhow.

    yea i think technically, he would be Ultra Optimus, since Prime is a rank (shared by sentinel prime and longarm prime) and Ultra sounds like a rank (going on the fact that his name is magnus).

    Yes but how good is Ultra as a name? I think before he was upgraded to the rank of Commander, Magnus was his name. He was probably Magnus Prime before he went up in rank.

    That would be cool if megatron wounds magnus but its like the g1 movie in reverse and magnus dies and passes the matrix to optimus. Megatron dosent become galvatron though because he kills magnus roothlessly. Thats would be cool if optimus prime then became the vehichle magnus was. The toy could have a rescultpted head with face plate to look like prime and instead of a hammer his axe become a huge double sided battle axe.

    Perhaps 'Ultra' is a shortening of something else?

    Well Geewun Ultra Magnus has been revealed to be MAGNUS, Optimus's brother. And ULTRA was his name when wearing the power suit.

    So I would assume that maybe Magnus was rebuilt in his old age and wasn't always the giant imposing badass he is now. And became Ultra.

    But we have no idea what it is in animated, but I am gonna say that ultra isn't a rank either since he is referred to as COMMANDER.

    I've been thinking that too. The whole deal. Passing the matrix to Prime who says he's not worthy and so one. I'd hate to see Magnus go, but that would be pretty cool.

    Well, it seems the name ranks 'Prime', 'Minor', and either 'Ultra' or 'Magnus' are seperate from positions held (such as Longarm Prime being head of cybertron intelligence). It's possible 'Magnus' just comes with the position, like 'Prime' does if the bot reaches a certain level in the elite guard. 'Ultra Magnus Prime' would sound awkward anyway.
