Synopsis:
Megatron beomes insane after Prime's destruction by Ethan last issue instead of by his hands. Shockwave takes advantage by enlisting the Predacons from Cybertron to eliminate Megatron using false Autobot symbols on them. Megatron is almost defeated, but beats them back and when he realizes that Shockwave was behind it, almost destroys him. However, due to a brief memory glance in which he remembers that Ethan somehow 'saved' Prime from the game via a memory download to a disk, he then blasts the space bridge he is on, vowing never to be destroyed by Prime should he ever return.
