Gather 'round folks, its time for another one of Fwiffos Massive Output of Loosely If Not Entirely Unsupported Theories of Character Motivation. But before we dive into Movie Megatron, lets take a look into the past. G1 Megatron was about Power. Of course, we never actually defined Power throughout the three season run, but he wanted it. And Oh Boy did he want it. Megatron wanted to rule the Earth, Cybertron, the Universe, whatever, and he did that through the philosphy of Strongest Wins. With G1 Megatron, it was all about strength. Armada Megatron seemed to have a similar philosophy, and as poorly developed as he was, RID Megatron did at well. But BW/BM Megatron was not content with simple rule. No, he wanted something more. Subtely hinted at throughout BW, Megatron liked absolute control. He controlled Rampage by ripping out his spark, and he controlled his other minions through fear and intimidation- and he even took control of the time stream with his attempt to kill Optimus Prime. But Beast Machines took it one step further. Even Control of his Minions wasn't enough. Megatron wanted more. While never explicitly stated, when you examine everything BM Megatron does, you arrive at one sole conclusion: He wanted to become Primus - He wanted to be the Transformers God. Everything, from becoming the Allspark to 'reformatting Cybertron in my own image!' was with the goal of him replacing Primus as God. Cybertron/GF Megatron followed in his steps, wanting to possess the 'planet forces' and become a God as well. But lets move up to the movie. For the longest time, we've been wondering about Movie Megatrons motivation. Sure, we all know he's after the Allspark, but does he really just want it for power? Does he really just want it so he can build an unstoppable army? Or is there something else in play? Like BM Megatron before him, I believe that movie Megatron wants to be a God. My proof? Prequel Comic # 2. Megatron cares little for simply conquering. It even says he cares nothing about Cybertron. Megatron wants more then that. He wants ABSOLUTE Power. Not just 'I am stronger then everyone else!', no, he wants the power to control life and death itself. Imagine that kind of power! Everything in the universe MUST bow before you, because you control the very essence of being! Their souls, sparks, whatever you wish to call them. You can breath a new life into the most worthless object- or simply wish away the most powerful. The Allspark is not some mere trinket, it's the power of a God in corpreal form. G1 Megatron would seek it out of some desire for another benificial energy source. Movie Megatron seeks it so it can grant him the power of absolute Godhood. So, that's my theory. Agree? Disagree? Hate me all the same?
