Synopsis
Shockwave leads a group of Decepticons on Cybertron talking about the glory years under Megatron, and to be ready for his 'second coming'. Meanwhile, Ultra Magnus and Kup confront Optimus Prime about Soundwave's actions, and Prime tells them not to worry, that all of this will pass over once Megatron's 'second coming' comes and goes without his reappearance. In between, we're given the entire series run as flashbacks (from Marvel Comics), as Soundwave begins his plan, starting with the destruction of the Last Autobot.
