    I was wondering, about the original primes.
    I mean going from the comics, I starting to think that Nova Prime, is protraid as the fallen, in the Movie.

    Are they even the same character with different names? or not?
    and what are the other original primes names? I only remember sentinal and Nova.

    Btw tfwiki... is just not helping me --"

    The Movie and the comics are different continuities.

    Nova Prime and the Fallen are both Primes who betrayed their lines but that's where the similarities end.

    There is much debate over the names of the original Primes as different versions of TF's have given different ones.

    Prima - first TF in the Marvel comics and can reasonably assumed to be considered a Prime.

    Alpha Prime - from Dreamwave comics. No actual data on him, though personally, I wouldn't be surprised if he were meant to be Prima in the Dreamwave-verse but that's just an opinion not fact.

    Vector Prime - According to Cybertron/Universe was one of the original Primes.

    The Fallen - in both the movie and G1, one of the original Primes who betrays the others.

    The following Primes are successors to and NOT the original Primes.

    Sentinel Prime - Predecessor to Optimus Prime in IDW, Marvel and Dreamwave. IDW and Dreamwave place the start of the war during his reign and he gets killed by Megatron.

    Prime Nova - mentioned in the Marvel comics but no data. Possibly same character as Nova Prime. Personally I think Prime Nova has a better ring to it.

    Rodimus Prime - successor to Optimus and the Chosen One.

    Guardian Prime - no data, from Dreamwave G1.

    Omega Prime - RID, combination of Optimus Prime and Ultra Magnus.

    This reminds me of something that has been bothering me for a while:

    If the orginal Primes (and the first thirteen as a whole seeing as now there are only seven original Primes) are meant to be universal singularities, why would the title Prime loose significance in the Animated portion of the multiverse? Were the Primes of the other realities called Magnuses here?

    Anyway, give this a go: Thirteen original Transformers - Transformers Wiki. It should help.

    This.

    Also, they're multiversal singularities. So both the movie Primes and the other continuities' original Primes are the same, but they look different because a multiversal traveler must adapt to the expectations and laws of the universe he is in. There are 7 who are Primes, as provided by ROTF, and 6 who have other title.

    As for Nova Prime, he's not one of the first Primes. He was the Autobot leader before Sentinel, who was the leader before Optimus. He seeked perfection and thought that the Cybertronian race should conquer the universe, being the only perfect race. So, he threw away the Matrix and welcomed the darkness, becoming Nemesis Prime.
