Different than the Knights of Cybertron...bear with me. [edit: I also noted this tweet from Roberts a couple of years back: James Roberts on Twitter which states that he was frantically writing #32 and #33, which were going to be a "deep mythology story" and that somehow they were related to the Titans, the Guiding Hand, and the Simanzi massacre. Obviously that never happened, because #32 and #33 ended up being the Slaughterhouse stuff, and in fact I don't believe any story like what Roberts described ever happened. Did it?] In the early issues of MTMTE (and part of Chaos Theory and Death of Optimus), there seemed to be some religious tension around both the existence of the Knights of Cybertron but even the existence of the Guiding Hand (Adaptus, Mortilus, etc.) Drift and Ratchet's continual interplay, for example, or tfs discussing the "legendary Necrobot". I'm reading tfwiki and I come across this: "As Mortilus stood against Primus, all of Cybertron became divided in a conflict that saw the planet shudder and its first moon being ripped asunder. The Death-bringer was ultimately destroyed in the struggle but the conflict left the remaining members of the Guiding Hand mortally wounded." Now, we know that around the conclusion of "Remain in Light", they *find* Luna 1. So it clearly hasn't been ripped asunder, which implies that this battle discussed above *never happened*. Now, I don't know about you, but if I'm a faith-driven guy and a central tenet/legend of my faith is concretely and objectively disproved...that would cause some ruffles. Worldview shattering! You'd figure that discovery would be incredibly disruptive to the TFs. Likewise, none of the other offshoot TF races that have been discovered seem to talk about or know about the Guiding Hand. You'd think that would also cause no small concern among the Cybertronians. So how come none of them seem to care? Since that event, and Dark Cybertron: * not only have no characters *even commented* about Luna 1 existing when it theoretically shouldn't, let alone react to it at all, they've even set up homes on it * no one talks about the Guiding Hand or any of its members (with the exception of Roadbuster, and in that case, much like the Necrobot, it was revealed quickly that it was never a mystical hing at all and that there was a much more grounded explanation) I'm open to the fact I might be missing runs of issues here; In the event I'm not, have Roberts or Barber ever talked about this direction shift or alluded to it?
