    That is to say, with its powers could you classify the AllSpark as one of the Cosmic Cubes seen in Marvel properties? (Interestingly Transformers comics were produced by Marvel in the 1980s, and at one point featured the Underbase)
    Cosmic Cube - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Cosmic Cube - Marvel Comics Database
    Cosmic Cube - Marvel Movies Wiki - Wolverine, Iron Man 2, Thor

    “Before time began, there was the Cube. We know not from where it came, only that it holds the power to create worlds, and fill them with life. That is how our race was born.” Optimus Prime, 2007

    Its origins are suitably mysterious enough to allow for such a connection. The only problem is that it’d raise Cain with the fans of both TF and Marvel.

    Only if Galactus is, in fact, Unicron.

    It's certainly a cube that's cosmic. But as it's never displayed the ability to actually warp reality and accomplish the physically impossible, I'mma say not really, no.

    It went from being two stories tall to the size of a bread box, defying the law of conservation of mass. I'd say that counts.

    Not enough absurdity. When it changes reality at the wish of the one who holds it, than we can call it a Cosmic Cube.

    For the cosmic cube, that's nothing. We're talking "catastrophically bend and alter space and time in a world-shattering manner" impossible.

    If the Allspark is a Cosmic cube, it is a weak, bargain-basement version of one.

    This. They're both super powerful, mystical artifacts (in a cube-ish shape), but the Cosmic Cube is about five times the superness, mysticalness and awesomeness of the AllSpark. The AllSpark holds the power to create worlds and fill them with life. The Cosmic Cube - as Aernaroth puts it - can basically alter the universe at the will of the holder, essentially.

    I think Soundwave, Megatron and every other Transformer who's ever changed size while transforming would like it to count as an awesome cosmic power too. :)

    I swear there's some science fiction planet in the centre of the oldest part of the universe where some asshole keeps building superpowerful rubix cubes, getting frustrated with them, and sending them out into space where they cause trouble for the rest of us.

    They say that Galactus has no real form, his look is taken as something that would frighten the populace of a planet. He could go by different names. And the Transformers wouldn't be afraid of a giant human looking dude. I smell a cross over brewing. Haha.

    :lol 

    *Galactus and Unicron play backgammon in the far corners of the universe*
    Galactus: "All right, my turn. ... Where'd you put the dice?"
    Unicron: "Hell if I know!"
    *dice float aimlessly through space, eventually colliding on Earth*

    Or worse, poker night between all of the eldritch abominations. Every saturday night at the center of the Universe.
