With the announcement of the new Transformers: Heroes series as well as the upcoming IDW Spotlight issue, something dawned on me. What's the official story about Ultra Magnus? Up until the DW comic series I never thought of his robot form as armor and therefore in no way thought there was any sort of "relationship" to Optimus Prime. So was that the first place it was ever refered to as armor? If not this brings up a whole slew of quesitons to me, all based on who says what is actually official. For example: If Magnus and Optimus are supposed to be "brothers," why would they look the same if the Matrix upgrades the chosen barer? This of course has a LOT to do with what's official about the Matrix as well, but do note that in War Within the Matrix did upgrade Optimus, just not drastically so there is some reference out there to it happening. Also, what was Magnus' Cybertron mode like then? Considering when he did come to earth Transformers really had no need to blend in too much with earth vehicles, why would he be reformated and still look like Prime under his armor? This isn't bugging me to a painfull level or anything, and I'm sure almost all of it can be written off by the simple fact that there are so many different story/time lines to Transformers that each one is just left to the whim of whoever's writing the story at the time. Just my curiousity.
