    You know what would be a nice subversion? For once they wake up/create/whatever you want to call it the Big Evil \"Oh No, It Will Destroy Us All\" bot... and it doesn\'t.

    I said the same thing about Bruticus, arguing that it would have been a great twist to have him form and, rather than go on a rampage, instead reveal all Starscream did and then declare (thanks to Blastoff\'s influence and Onslaught\'s ability to adapt to new situations quickly) that he was creating a new city for Transformers and they wouldn\'t bow to Starscream.

    The same here. They unleash \'Cancer\', all scared he will murder them all... but he just goes. Make it that Elita and the rest... they are the monsters. and the \'monster\' is done with them.

    So does this tie in to some previous tf lore or is it new material? As in is this evil titan and his backstory based on something?

    If not then wouldnt this make carcer (as in prison?) the second 'evil' titan than is not a zombie?

    He's specified as the Titan of Leige Maximo. So while we haven't seen him do anything, we know that its Bad News

    You know, Obsidian, your argument would be a lot more convincing if you just came out and said, "This Titan is evil and will kill us all," rather than being vague about it.

    I said it once before, and I'll say it again, 50% of conflicts in fiction wouldn't happen if people stopped being vague.

    From the sounds of it whatever idea Elita 1 had for Carcer is coming back to bite her in the aft big time.

    Yeah... Like, Naruto would be, like, a one shot chapter.

    That was the genius of Peter David. He managed to play with that hilarious notion and made it credible, usefull, and genuinely intriguing.

    You're not wrong about that. I'd say it might even be a higher percentage.
