When Optimus died in the 86 movie a lot of us were upset. Even now it it is a very bold move and gives the movie a lot of dramatic impact. Whilst he did come back eventually it still doesn't take away from the impact of his death. Spock came back but his death in Wrath of khan still punches you in the gut. So my question is how satisfied where you with Optimus' death? He turned the tide of battle against the decepticons, taking nearly all of them out. He then fought Megatron and where it not for Hot Rod getting in the way would have beaten him. He passes the matrix on to Ultra Magnus and dies surrounded by his friends. He seems relatively serene when he dies. I think it is a fitting death for a hero and it would be hard to top that. So. Choose any fiction you like. Or make up your own. It doesn't have to be permanent. But what do you think would be a fitting death for Optimus Prime? All great heroes and legends have a famous death. Can we get any better than the 86 movie for a definitive Optimus Prime death scene? Are there any other characters that you can think of an appropriate ending for? What are your favorite death scenes? Dinobot's has to be another classic that is hard to top. And Unicron "desstttinnyyy...." KABOOOM! Note: This is purely hypothetical. Kind of like an 'Elseworlds' scenario.
