Well I was just thinking do people mesh comic and show continuity together for storyline? After reading IDW's BW The Gathering which was meant to be set in the same universe as the show, I'm beginning to accept that. But then reading what information is out for Ascending, they're integrating elements from BW II and Neo, shows I never considered part of the BW story partially because I've never seen the series and I haven't heard too many great things about it and that the story kinda mixed the fact that in their regular Beast Wars the planet wasn't Earth and I think it was either Lio or Big Convoy that went to Earth's far future... For myself I used to view the original G1 canon as: G1 => BW => BM now I kinda got it into... G1 => BW + The Gathering => BM This got more complicated for me when I started reading other TF comic series like The War Within and then IDW's Stormbringer and Infiltration series. Is War Within supposed to be the origin story of Dreamwave's universe or possible for any series out there? It could be Dreamwave's universe because Optimus does see visions referencing elements of the future that are from Dreamwave's G1 comics and it could also be for the main G1 cartoon series since they do show diagnostic drones from BM. But after reading Stormbringer I got thinking because they used the pre-Earth designs for Prime and Megs, so I'm kinda lost lol Now I realize its personal preference and opinion, but I just wanted to know what other people in the community thought. Maybe there are people out there that really hated BM and don't consider it have happened at all.
