So who doesn't like a thread about sharing "i CoUlD dO iT BeTtEr!" plots? From what I've seen of the latest IDW reboot, it's suuuuper slow and treading the same ground; essentially going through the same motions we've seen again and again about how Cybertron put its passive aggressive pants on, and went to war with itself. For an 'exciting and new' story about Cybertron's awkward years, it's a bit old hat from the get-go. So. How would you rewrite the history of Cybertron to make it at least a bit more spicy? Are the same characters major players from the start? Would Orion Pax still be an archivist or cop, buddying up to a revolutionary gladiator named Megatron, before things go pear-shaped? Is Cybertron's government still a bit useless, or full blown "1984"-ing the populace with double-speak and TV head makeovers? Go as wild as you like, and see if we can find some alternate histories that might be a bit more entertaining than wading through the cold soup splashed all over the comic pages at the moment.
