This issue was pure “set the stage”. Showing the current situation on Earth and Cybertron. The tensions all going to blow up in Optimus’ face now. Starscream on the other hand, seems to be perfectly content with his situation. Onyx arrives at the very end of the issue, with Leige Maximo in chains. He claims to be Cybertron’s reckoning and if I read it correctly, apparently the Arisen was responsible for Cybertron’s fall. That reckoning line immediately made me compare Onyx with Bane. And we also get a full look at Onyx’s face, and boy is he ferocious looking.
