Simon Furman Script Wrap Transformers: Regeneration One #85 - The ULTIMATE Showdown Between Optimus Prime and Megatron
Jack - Monday, November 05, 2012


According to Simon Furman all bets are off this time. Fans of the Transformers have been marinated in the Optimus Prime Versus Megatron showdown ever since we saw them battle atop the dam in Generation 1. Most every series, comic and movie has culminated in the "Showdown" that largely goes the same way with Megatron being foiled when he's just inches away from extinguishing Prime's spark for good. Frankly (no-pun), its become the parsley on the plate made to make the story look nice with adding a lot of flavor. However, according to Furman, Transformers: Regeneration One #85 gets seriously serious this time.
So uppermost in mind when we got to continue the saga beyond it’s abrupt conclusion in issue #80 (in Regeneration One), was to put that to rights, to accelerate Optimus and Megatron into a showdown where all bets are off, the stakes and surrounding elements too mighty to brush off with an inconclusive draw (another stalemate was just not on the cards). In one corner, you’ve got Prime, who’s been head in the sand for the past 20 years, in the other Megatron, who’s been laying waste to Earth with almost the sole aim of sticking it to Prime and getting his attention. Well, now he’s got it — big time. The gloves are well and truly off. And just when you think it can’t get any more extreme (in terms of Prime’s state of mind), any worse — it does.
