Interview: Magdalene Visaggio Talks Transformers Visionaries
BaCon - Wednesday, January 17, 2018

Women Write About Comics have posted an interview with writer Magdalene Visaggio, who's been gone through a crash course on how to handle these Giant Friggin Robots! The Visionaries story takes place with them hiding deep within Cybertron after fleeing from their planet, Prysmos. The story has won some and lost some heroes, which Magdalene gives her take on why they are on Cybertron and the death of Kup. Read on for more.
In this incarnation, how did the Visionaries come to be?

About three-hundred years ago, the planet Prysmos was a highly technological society, and magic, what we call in-universe the Arcana Vast, was a sad, ancient religion practiced by virtually nobody except for Merklynn, the last great wizard. He was offended by this, and cast a spell that would realign the planet’s three stars, wiping out all technology on the planet so that magic would ascend again. Three centuries later, the spell destabilizes, and the gravitational forces of the stars re-aligning tears Prysmos apart, forcing them to flee, ultimately, to Cybertron. The Visionaries in this version of the universe are Merklynn’s force of magical soldiers, kind of like the Jedi, who were rent in two over ideological differences.

So why was Cybertron chosen as the new home for the Visionaries?

He’s [Merklynn] offended it even exists. He hates machinery, computers, technology.

Now we all just have to know: how did it feel to kill off Kup? There’s been quite an uproar about it.

Like I said, I haven’t been up to date on Transformers. But I knew and loved Kup from the 1986 movie, and so when they told me he was going to die, I was just shocked. Utterly, utterly shocked that the responsibility for taking out friggin’ Kup was going to be landing in my hands. Kup has always been one of my favorites (Kup, Springer, Ultra Magnus, Arcee, and yes, even Hot Rod are my TF dream team), so I immediately understood this wasn’t going to be a small thing. So I never took this lightly.

That’s why I structured the first issue the way I did; Kup takes a lot of the spotlight, and I showed him as the one pushing for something better; the old seen-it-all got to play idealist at the end, and I loved being able to do that for him.
