    That could be an interesting spotlight series.

    Is it still a spotlight if it is a series?

    wonder what their story is, since in season 2 of G-1 it was stated that the constructicons (who megs built centuries later) created megatron....

    maybe we'll get something worthwhile

    I hope he was originally a janitor.

    That'd be awesome.

    I thoght, but I cant remember(god I wish they'd re-release the series) if they ever said where they got the constructicon sparks from. If they were imprisoned then I could see that they built Megatron. Assuming of course this is the Megatron I like and not from the live action movie

    Nope. I have always thought that
    this book could be quite good though. I just hope they go the DW way and give Megatron motive. And not just make him 'evil'. Evil people do not think they are evil.

    Well the melding of the original G1 lore and that of later shows is a hard one. They never had sparks back in the old days, Wheeljack programed the Dinobots. Transformers didn't have sparks till Beast Wars so they could go either route. By the way the combatacons had their personalities imprisoned in G1, you might have been thinking of them. Sometimes new characters would just apear in the old days.

    this is exactly why IDW's continuity is a clean slate reboot from the dismal animated series. They gave the characters voices and personalities, but the toon didn't keep good continuity nor did it provide good origin stories.

    Since Furman is more or less the architect of IDW's book, Megatron may well be a gladiator like he was in War Within.

    It's about the IDW Generation 1.3 Megatron.
    The one currently on Earth, the one who's just gotten his Earth mode.

    Lord Soth.

    Megs probably acknowledges himself as both cruel and avaricious.
