As Hot Rod and the Dinobots continue their descent into the bowels of Cybertron, Soundwave has successfully neutralized the Autobots’ early warning defenses allowing the Ark to make its way into Cybertron’s orbit undetected. Of course in a ship containing Galvatron, Starscream, and Shockwave the chance for last-second mutiny is a pretty good bet.
Although Shockwave and Starscream’s teased partnership to get rid of Galvatron has been slow boiling for months, here it comes to fruition as Galvatron finds himself attacked and then forcibly ejected out a hatch in Cyberton’s atmosphere. Meanwhile Hot and and the Dinobots find more than they were expecting including Grimlock‘s body which has been possessed by the spirit of Primus.
There’s a lot going on in this issue including several characters reverting to form as, despite the last-minute betrayal, Galvatron has finally made it back home. We also get cameoes from Optimus Prime, Prowl, Kup, the Aerialbots, and Ultra Magnus. Worth a look.
