Did he call him a "false Prime" or did he say that the title was meaningless? Those could mean very different things.

He called him a "false Prime". In the same month when, in another issue, the same author had another character refer to Optimus as "the one true Matrix bearer". In the same month as we learned that at least one former Matrix holder carried a fake. Seems all too concurrent to be coincidental to me!

Nova seemed to be a "fake" one, descendant of Primus, will of Primus and whatnot.

Nominus either made up an excuse for a fake matrix to claim the title of Prime, or was actually given the fake matrix Nova must have carried around to influence crowds.

Was Nova that power hungry, or did he do all this because the Civil war was just that bad? It's implied that this war may have been worse than the Autobot/decepticon one, if it could only end at the hand of the Prime.

Not possible. The current war was 4 plus million years (out of the entire 12 million history of their race) and took a population that was in the millions to the few thousands.

Sentinel was probably the worst since things like the Institute, the corruption and the empurata flourished under him.

I think that Nova was a bit of both. At first he truly wanted peace but power corrupted him at the end.

The whole Senate corruption and Empurata and whatnot were at play before Sentinel rose to power, and by M:O he seemed to have grown tired of the Senate's manipulation.
