    i would portray the earth round, to set it apart as a fictional universe. i know people want realism, but a flat earth just wouldn't work in a fictional setting.

    I just had to laugh.

    Since the war is just beginning, it will probably take a while before they come to Earth.

    Like Circuit Breaker. She shows up for a few issues then disappears for awhile. A good, long, while.

    Maybe it could be a flat earth?? That would be HILARIOUS!!!

    Ohh, what if it were like ancient times and humans thought Transformers were embodiments of their gods? Optimus Prime as Odin, Grimlock as Thor...

    You must have missed the rest of my post....

    But, I was being serious. If the earth was FLAT in this new continuity, imagine all the fun!!! You’d have battles.... and then people would just fall off the side!!!! :lolol

    I didn’t I was off track, and neither was anyone else. You asked how we thought the Earth and humans should be portrayed. I said it should be portrayed as flat, and the Transformers as human mythology. How was that off track?

    Were it my call, this, essentially.

    I'd play up the fact that the arrival of the Transformers' war on Earth will be the end of humankind as we know it, not so much because their war would wipe out humankind as it would be the increasing exposure of Energon on Earth causing every human being on the planet to mutate and hyper-evolve bit by bit, person by person into something else. Again, I'd be paying off the Carpenteresque vibe of my earlier IDW reboot idea.

    By that I hope it's like Older Sari where she's pretty much a capable individual and smarter and not some whiny damsel in distress like her younger self.

    Just give us some human characters who aren't infuriating. I would probably say the only three good humans we've ever gotten in the entire franchise were Verity, Fowler, and Marissa (and honestly I'm not sure if IDW1 Marissa can be replicated).

    I would try to keep human military or paramilitary organizations away for as long as possible. Maybe have an issue where they try, and Megatron just wrecks their shit so hard they never try again.
