    i like to think of it as, skids didn't have all that many decepticons names bouncing around in the mind, so misfire was the first name that came to mind. i'm surprised he didn't say tyrest or was that blocked from his mind?

    id say blocked since he used the nudge gun on himself to erase the mission...he'd still be under the impression tyrest was good. i dont think lack of names was it since he had memories prior to the mission or him being an agent he just didn't want to talk about misfire. i have a feeling it's hilariously stupid when we find out.

    A lot of people honestly think Roller switched sides. What if he really did? And it doesn't HAVE to be shadowplay related. It could easily have been a special ops mission gone wrong, he wiped his memory, and is rescued by Megatron. Megatron recognizes him as Pax's friend, and helps him recover, hoping to bring Orion over to his side.

    From what I remember about before the war proper broke out and it started being Optimus vs. Megatron, Megatron in a way still respected Pax.

    Loving it as always. And forgive me, I've only read half the posts as I right this. Just a thought on the riptide/rodimus theory going around, what if Rod is in Megatron's body?

    Yeah, that idea has been floated a couple of times, but after thinking about it, it seemed extremely unlikely that Rodimus would be able to carry on the charade, especially without people like Rung noticing. So far, Megatron seems to be himself... if mellowed.

    So far less ego. I mean the solution Trailcutter was something I do not think Rodimus thought of. I believe Megatron is Megatrons.

    I highly doubt Rodimus is in Megatron's body, just what is the point of making the whole ordeal of Megatron as an Autobot if it's not even him? It's kind of annoying to think it to be the case, and if it is, while I might not drop the comic altogether, it will be a huge negative blow for me. Megatron is definitely Megatron, his attitude, his skill, his level-headedness. James isn't one to take the chance to write Megatron only to not write Megatron, it's just stupid.

    Agreed. Megatron IS Megatron. He has to be or his whole redemption bit was for nothing.

    But, I do believe Rodimus has bodyswitched. Whether it's to an unknown character in the series, or just an upgraded body frame similar to what Megatron did, we won't know until it's revealed.

    Megatron is Tarn and the other way around.

    love this comic. i just read these last two issues and almost this whole thread in the past couple hours.

    I like some of the theories thrown around in here. i know they can't all be true, but it is exciting to hear them all.

    I have no idea where this Rodimus in Megs body theory came from cos it makes next to no sense. Rung is asking Megatron very specific details about his life, and Megatron is able to answer them. Heck, he can even tell Rung how they first met each other(something Megs views as a significant encounter) I think only he and Impactor would know for sure about that. And Terminus, whoever that is, is obviously someone very important to Megatron.

    I think, as a theory, it cheapens what character growth we've seen Megatron experience and whatever growth he has to come. Come to think of it, it also seems a bit of a slap to the face for Rodimus as well. He might have mucked things up in the past but in Remain in Light and DC you could see that he was trying to change himself for the better. How does body hopping into one of the most hated and feared bots in history help that in the slightest?

    LOL... it was only one person who brought up the Megatron is Rodimus theory and there have been about 3 dozen different people who have now posted about how it can't be true.

    I think it's safe to say that the theory is dead and we can all move on now.

    I finally got to read this (and 28- my comic service gypped me last month)... and it was outstanding. I'm not always a super big fan of Milne, but the double page spread with Chromedome and Nightbeat talking as Nightbeat was entering his quarters juxtaposed with the cross section of the LL was OUTSTANDING.

    Altho' his designs are still overly complicated, and the story telling isn't always the clearest (he's improved quite a bit at that, tho'), the little things he brings (the hand drawn symbols, the facial expressions, the lines indicating surprise, the little Swerve glyph holding up his hand by the laws) are very charming. He imbues the 'bots with a lot of body language and life.

    Megatron's methods of dealing with others are quite interesting. Surprisingly, I can't even say that he was unfair to Trailbreaker (ugh, I hate calling him Trailcutter). I'm dying to find out exactly how the trial ends that doesn't result in Prime and the Autobots blowing their newfound credibility. I can't believe how "accepted" or, at least, seemingly accepted he is. Very interesting.

    Fembot outrage update; I find Nautica, who's only been in a few pages thus far vastly more interesting than Windblade. She seems down to earth (so to speak). Not obnoxious, not pushing an agenda, not anything other than a neat new character addition to an already wacky and varied cast. Good.

    This is easily the best comic that I get every month. Not best Transformers comic, but best comic, hands down. A return to form, and so many possibilities lie ahead of us. Fantastic.

    So, Starscreams mention of Scorponok reminds me, what ever happened to him? I know he was one of the main villains for Maximum Dinobots, but has he shown up at all post Furman era?

    His last known whereabouts was garus 9 just before overlord took it over, his status after that is unknown. Though he clearly hasn't been forgoten about since he was in monstrocity. Given that RID has returned to earth and barbers love of addressing old continuity I wouldn't be surprised if he turns up down the road

    Not sure if this was mentioned (read the whole thread and didn't see it), but did anyone notice the 89/101 on Rodimus' left hand?

    Isn't that from Eugenesis? The whole vote for Rodimus' stay as leader and the count he had on his hand?

    I've noticed that there have been some other Eugenesis bits here and there in MTMTE. I wonder what it means here?

    Not sure what you mean? It's from the vote that the crew held whether or not to keep him on as captain, he showed it to Nightbeat in DC to snap him out of Nova's control, he explained it Prime, and it's the whole point of his conversation with Atomizer. 101 votes for, 89 votes against. He carved it onto his hand as a permanent reminder that he must be a better leader to get that 89 back on side.

    As far as I know it's not something that occured in Eugenesis. No one's ever mentioned it as such and there's no notes in the Wiki about it being so.
