While Optimus Prime deals with the unexpected return and betrayal of Fortress Maximus, Rodimus Prime‘s plan of a preemptive attack on Jhiaxus leads the Autobots into a deadly trap that costs on of the original Generation One Autobots his life. The teasing of Shockwave and Starscream joining the fray also continues as the pair return to Cybertron setting up the comic’s final arc involving the fate of the Autobots, Decepticons, Cybertron, Earth, and perhaps even the entire universe.
I’m saddened to see Hound go and, given this is the end to the original Marvel Comics run that started back in 1984 (for .75 an issue), I wonder how many other names might be added to the list. And Maximus’ brutal attack on Optimus Prime introduces him as a dangerous threat as well.
Along with plenty of action, Transformers: Regeneration One #98 delivers a rejuvinated Shockwave, teases the return of Galvatron, and sets all the pieces in motion for what should be a very interesting final arc. Worth a look.
