    Going to be another awesome issue. :D 

    Perhaps some understanding between some of the parties will be reached. But more awesome fights is still good.

    And now MASK will finally join the party.

    The understanding will probably happen in the middle of the event after their tired of fighting each other, like in another other event.

    I've got some catching up to do with the Earth-based stuff, but can they now use space-bridge tech as sort of a Groundbridge? I understand Rom flying to that forest pretty quickly, but it being at least two hundred miles away from Portland makes me wonder how Optimus and the others got there so fast.

    Victorion probably just flew them there with her gravity powers.

    What a typical Mary Sue introduction to ROM, who despite being human-sized can just throw around Optimus of all people.
    Seriously, IDW now has entered the dread territory of crossovers. Did they not learn from Marvel and DC that nothing good ever comes out of those?

    Rom is a cyborg mind you. So he's got to have some form of super strength. I view him as kind of a space terminator.

    And part of the reason(I think) IDW did this was so they could be on more equal footing with Marvel and DC. Revolution is also just meant to bring everyone all to together and then after they all go back to their separate corners, while the series Revolutionaries ties them all together.

    I don't know if you know this but Rom is a guy inside a suit of alien power armour that, like most sci-fi power armour gives him enhanced strength and abilities and all that, it's not like some regular dude just managed to knock Optimus on his ass. It's also pretty clear Rom didn't "throw around Optimus" so much as caught him off-guard with a rocket-powered shoulder-barge to the stomach so he could disarm Optimus, probably because he knows despite his enhancements he'd only last so long against a big ol' Cybertronian, so better get that massive gun out of his hand. I mean a fist isn't very big compared to the rest of a human but a hard gut punch is gonna knock anyone on their ass.

    Jazz *still* doesn't have an arm back? C'mon, let the guy get fixed up!

    And Rom, perhaps the 'hit first, then talk' method may not be the best method here, even if Cybertronians do have a reputation :)

    Well the Cybertronian was pointing a gun at him and their bad reputation doesn't help matters.

    Pointing a gun, sure, but also talking.

    And Rom is suppose to listen too one of most hated alien spices in the galaxy because he's talking? If anything Rom has every right to kill Optimus in self defense for pointing his gun at him.
