    In transformer 2009. Megatron surrender and take Optimus back to the Autobot. Why ?
    Yes, he say he want to watch he will fail to deal with Human and his believe in them
    Optimus said he know what Megatron want and think he just give it to him (Want Optimus hurt him) and it never mention since. But can anyone explain it more substance ?

    Another question: in All hail Megatron, What the deal after the story end. I mean, the plot is a remake the first time Transformer land on Earth right. And Deception try to invades the Earth and Autobot stop them. But what the deal after that war ? there are still a lot issue release after that. all sort of event happen, Like Kup get recuse after a prequel event they didn't even tell.

    Megatron had Shockwave build a Space Bridge into his body, allowing him to transport the entire Decepticon forces to Cybertron when the Autobots took him there as prisoner, which was his ultimate plan. His talks with Optimus were just a benefit of being a prisoner... and Megatron was trying to goad Optimus into dropping his sanctimonious grand-standing and lash out at him.

    I'm not sure what your question about All Hail Megatron is referring to? It's not a remake and is set after the previous ongoing IDW stories. Are you asking what Kup was rescued from? That story was told in Spotlight: Kup some time before hand.

    I mean it is IDW first time in their continuity, but it is the first time Transformer land on earth. it is a remake in that sense it is IDW version of that event.

    Nah, the Transformers arrived on Earth in Infiltration (although some bad been on the planet a lot longer). All Hail Megatron isn't the first story in IDW's continuity. There were a bunch of comics before it.

    yeah, i mean it is the first time they did it (this event when Human and Transformer first met). not their first transformer comic.
    Isn't the whole IDW is G1 reboot. They recreate all the event in their own version. What i mean is AHM is their remake version of the first time Transformer on Earth. Right ?

    No. Before AHM there was:
    Transformers #0
    Transformers Infiltration #1-6
    Stormbringer 1-4
    Escalation 1-6
    Devastation 1-6
    Revelation 1-4
    Maximum Dinobots 1-5
    And a score of Spotlights.
    All published by IDW and took place before AHM.

    I think you're asking about All Hail Megatron issues #13-16, AKA All Hail Megatron Coda?

    Issues #13, #14 and #16 are set after All Hail Megatron #12, and serve as setup for the next series, 2009's The Transformers, which it looks like you've already read. AHM #15 is set before AHM #1, and serves as a bit of a prequel for the series, explaining how some of the characters like Kup got to where they were at the start of the series.

    No, it is not.

    In IDW a group of Decepticons lead by Starscream arrived some time prior to the IDW Infiltration series. The Decepticons arrived on Earth as part of a 6 step program that started with a secret presense and infiltration of Earth governments ("Infiltration), would then escalate existing Earth conflicts ("Escalation") before finally revealing themselves and destroying the planet while taking the resources. A group of Autobots arrived (lead by Prowl) to stop this from happening. However, Earth was different because of a special energy source, Ore-13, and thus became more of the focus, with Megatron and Optimus Prime (commanders who normally remained on the space base) also coming to Earth. After several confrontations, the Autobots leave Earth. (There are some other stories afterwards with the Dinobots, Hot Rod and Scorponok.)


    All Hail Megatron takes place about a year later. The big difference was that the Decepticons then revealed themselves to the public. Before they were on Earth, but tried to keep themselves mostly hidden. Now, with the Autobots gone, they attack in the open.

    So AHM is not the arrival on Earth (thus not the retelling of the arrival from the cartoon or the Marvel comics). However, it is written to appeal to fans of the G1 cartoon.


    Before All Hail Megatron IDW already told part of the story (see above). AHM should have followed this story, but the writer didn't really care and thus did his own thing. Because of this, AHM didn't work well with the already made IDW stories and readers hated this. Some of those AHM stories after the end of the battle are them trying to fix this (the Sunstreaker story and the Kup story -- these happen before AHM), while others are the first step for the next story (Bumblebee, Optimus/Ironhide).

    AHM is the first time in IDW thaat the transformers are very open and public about their presence on earth to the wider populace, but it is not the first time the transformers interact with humans in IDW. They were trying to keep themselves hidden in the stories before that and only interacted with small groups of humans.
