    Sweet Mercy what a good issue!

    Some thoughts.
    *At least now we know A) Where Empire of Stone takes place and B) why Ratchet left.
    *Is that the same Data pad the Necrocon was holding?!
    *Boy how great is it to have a breather issue where we all get to sit down and catch our breath.
    * Good mercy is Cahill a great fill in!
    *10 is Groot!

    That really was a lovely chapter. Exactly what MTMTE needed after all these massive events, a chapter just to give the characters room to breathe and develop. I loved it!

    Brainstorm needed supplies that only the Decepticobs had, so in order to gain access to it he switched sides and fed Decepticons information they already had, just packaged so they thought it was new. It's also revealed that he's was constructed during the war so that he was cease to exist if his plans had worked, which makes Nautica forgive him. We also get his pre-Institute name: Genitus.
    In the end they destroy his time machine (Although... Ravage steals one of the briefcases for Megatron!) and allow him to stay on the ship as long as he is supervised as well as him renouncing his Decepticon retainer.

    Wow his pre-Institute name sucked. No wonder he changed it.

    God I love this comic and I love Brainstorm. I knew Roberts wouldn't make him the bad guy.... Even though he kinda was. :lol  I want to know what Megatron's reactions to all of his confesses were though.


    Brainstorm still gets to be my favorite Autobot at the end of the day!

    Well remember he said he changed his plan so he would spare everyone who lost a loved one in the war or something like that? By that point I don't think he really cared as long as it meant saving Quark from dying in a POW camp.

    But still
    if his plan worked, he would have erased himself from existence, which means he didn't build the time machine, so he doesn't go back in time, which means the war starts anyway, which means he then gets warborn after all. That creates an open loop, which #38 established isn't how the machine works

    Interesting that
    we now know both Brainstorm and Chromedome's pre-Institute names
    , and they're nothing special. Anyone want to bet
    Highbrows pre-institute name
    will be a big deal?

    Good thinking. I'm sure there must be something coming up about
    Highbrow and the MMM

    I loved this issue. Had a very similar feel to 'The Gloaming'. Read it when my cat woke me up at 3:30am. Loved Ratchet's observation about Chromedome and his compassion towards his 'favourites' and Ten. Also loved Perceptor's standing ovation.
