    I was just thinking about the titans return comic and what could be in store for the story itself and what cool things they could maybe do/reveal. It occurred to me that now would be an interesting time to bring back Hunter O"Nion as a titan master. I always felt his death was an unnecessary waste and he could continue to be an interesting character. Not sure if he would come back fully cybertronian or still techno-organic but it would be cool to me. Anyone else feel the same?

    He was from before I started following the IDW comics, so I don't know how good a character he was. But bringing him back wouldn't be that hard. Say his mind is still around buried in Sunstreaker's and has been dormant. When they realize what's going on, whatever group Sunstreaker is currently with uses a combination of memenosurgery and synthizoid technology to move Hunter's mind into a new body.

    I'd like that. It's comics --- anything can be done. McCarthy murdering Hunter in the fashion he did was awful storytelling and a giant crap taken on one of the better parts of Furman's run.

    Hunter doesn't need to return and be a big main character, but it would be a wonderful way to undo one of the shittier things done when AHM did their soft reboot junk.

    I seem to recall that way back, when Ratchet reversed the headmaster process it specifically included a line saying that absolutely none of Hunter's mind was left over in Sunstreaker, presumably to appease fans who took umbrage with Sunstreaker being a headmaster in the first place. As pointless and hackneyed as Hunter's death was, I think we're stuck with it.

    Hunter should emerge from virtual space as Apex and serve as a Powermaster Optimus Prime who is based on the phase sixers and Maximus Ambus.

    Ah, didn't know people liked Hunter, thought they lumped him in with Verity and that other dude for kind of being, y'know, boring. IDW does a lot of good, but if there's one thing they're awful at its their human characters.

    I guess I'd be down for Hunter to come back though, but I kind of felt his death gave AHM a little bit of weight.

    To me it felt more like death for the sake of weight. What I mean by that is that it was more arbitrary. When writing a story death can absolutely add weight like some of the deaths in wreckers books, stakeout's death felt that way to me. But Hunter's death felt it off place, it wasn't earned or deserved.

    Hm? I think Verity is really popular! I saw people call for her return a lot when she wasn't around.

    As much as I liked Hunter and his part in the Headmasters storyline, I say let him stay dead. It adds a bit of realism.
