Firstly, for those of you who missed the Marvel UK comics... Spoiler: The Lamentable Story of Lord Straxus One-time leader of the Decepticons on Cybertron, Lord Straxus's rule hit a bit of a snag when his body was destroyed... courtesy of Blaster and improper use of a Space Bridge. Reduced to a head-in-a-jar, Straxus plotted to take over the body of Megatron, whom he saw as a threat to his leadership. It sort of worked, but not really. Project Re-Birth contained a second part: a duplicate of Megatron which Straxus could occupy and take his place. This... also does not end well for Straxus. But what if things had gone differently? What if his mind had gained full control of the second Megatron? His original body destroyed, Straxus has constructed a new form to transfer his consciousness! And this time, he has rebuilt it in his own image! LEANER! MEANER! And with an upgraded pick-axe BIG ENOUGH TO PUT THE FEAR OF PRIMUS INTO er... PRIMUS HIMSELF! MAYBE! But probably not. (Straxus' colouring in the comics was inconsistent to say the least. This version is based on the red shoulders/chest as below.) BUT WAIT! Even his mighty Flying Cannon mode has received an upgrade! And this time it can even store his axe in alt mode! Or at least part of it without looking rubbish. Yes, Lord Straxus is truly ready to triumph over Megatron! No more shall he endure those nightmares of defeat and humiliation! He rules Cybertron. Not Megatron. He does! Lord Straxus! THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE! Except... A mind as powerful as Megatron's - even a copy - cannot so easily be dismissed! And so, just as Straxus once tried to possess Megatron, now he in turn is possessed! And thus, when he combines with his fellow Decepticons, it is Megatron - not Straxus - who takes control of the mighty, merciless... POLYHEX! (Named after the location of his fortress and also a play on words: the prefix 'Poly-' referring to 'many') OH BOY, LET'S CRANK UP THOSE SMELTING POOLS. WE GOT A LOTTA WORK TO DO! - Thanks for reading, folks! Feedback appreciated as always!
