I particularly enjoyed this exchange:
Megatron: You betrayed me. You're not worth talking to.
Orion Pax: Comparing the scale of our betrayals is .. bold.
Orion at the end, adopting Megatron's philosophy: "We must become what the times require of us."
- Wheeljack is back on Cybertron, but the others are still on the moon, which the Decepticons hold
- this is the most balanced, moral and reasonable Sentinel Prime I've seen in any continuity. His position when he's talking with Megatron makes it clear that Megatron is rebelling against some fairly minor restrictions and that his extreme actions are in no way justified
- Megatron is angry at Pax for betraying him when Megatron has betrayed the world. He lacks self-awareness, I'd say
- A number of named characters are wounded and some are killed
- the rainmakers have never had so prominent a role, not that I can recall. I'm surprised to see such minor characters
- the whole sequence where
- Sentinel orders Starscream killed.... interesting. Protecting state secrets, or suspects him of working with Megatron?
- Having just watched the first season of RID, it's nice to see Strongarm as a character in this continuity.
- poor Chainclaw!
It's another great issue, one of the best yet.
