    To me that's like saying that Starscream is as forgettable as a random Sunbow background Seeker, but whatever.

    “Nemesis Prime” is just lazy writing. It’s like devising a protagonist version of Megatron and naming him “Nice-atron”. I realize Transformers began with a young target audience, but they could have done better than that.

    “Scourge” gets my vote, and I’m in favor of retconning NP out of existence and renaming Galvatron’s henchman something different to secure it.

    The Colorado Death Stare. Though some academics are skeptical, legend says it can even suppress the ultimate being, Armada Optimus Prime, preventing him from using his unstoppable secret trailer pants pelvic thrust attack.

    That is now the canon reason.

    Another problem is that Nemesis Prime has never been in a kid-aimed show. He’s always been part of darker/edgier shows and movies, so the fact he exists and is named that way makes even less sense.

    One more thing, I also got some good ideas here on what to rename G1 Scourge. My favourite had to be Sweepmaster.

    Edit: I meant G1 Scourge, in case it might’ve caused confusion.

    I've always seen it as two separate eyebrows.

    Ironically not Black Convoy like all the other Nemesis Primes and RID Scourge in Japan...but Scourge, as a reference to the RID character. And is a servant to Unicron.
    Huh...
    G1 Scourge is an Optimus repaint in the UT.

    I guess I never thought of them as eyebrows at all. I just thought the area under his brow that surrounded his eyes was black, but that there were no actual eyebrows.

    I mean if you think about it, Armada/Micron Legend could be considered a dark show. It certainly has a significant dose of cosmic horror starting from when Sideways reveals his trans-phase mode.

    One day we will get a Megatron with the real original head design, as was intended. Maybe even do the Galvatron upgrade UT style, but the horns flare out like a frilled lizard.

    The G1 toy head on MP-36+ is still my "head canon" version of his face.
