I’m amazed by Transformers: Autocracy # 9. I saw it coming. With ZETA PRIME dead, and Megatron backstabbing Orion Pax, shooting him through the chest — Megatron has now taken Iacon and all of Cybertron over for the Decepticons –giving out an amnesty to all Autobots to join the Decepticons, or death.
In the depths of The Undergrid, a broken and nigh dead Orion Pax awakens as he senses a nearby power source. A calling.
Transformers: Autocracy # 9 is going to give fans the goosebumps. It’s a thrilling moment for any reader. Orion Pax dons the Matrix of Leadership, shedding away his life and identity to become Optimus Prime.
Issue # 10 begins the climax of this storyline. It’s time to set Cybertron free. It’s time to fight as one. It’s time for hope of a better tomorrow.
Chris Metzen & Flint Dille have done an amazing job fleshing out a chaotic Cybertron that truly needs a noble and unconditional heroe. A freedom-fighter. A symbol of unity and hope: Optimus Prime.
