I know this might be an unpopular opinion, but I think Megatron has been done a lot in the movies, comics, shows, everything. His backstory has been explored thoroughly. He even became an Autobot. I don’t see anywhere else to go with his character and I wonder if it’s time to phase him out of the comic book canon (he can still be in Cyberverse). For this upcoming IDW reboot, I don’t think Megatron should be in this new era of Transformers at all beyond the first issue. Maybe HE should be the victim of the first murder on Cybertron, but he’s just a mining bot who writes poetry and is kind of a idealistic leader within his mining group, but nothing more. The new universe could be reset with Starscream as the leader of the Decepticons with Cyclonus or Soundwave as second-in-command. No Megatron at all for the entire continuity. Thoughts?
