Optimus Prime

The Transformed Man, Act 16: Chaos Theory

The Transformed Man, Act 16: Chaos Theory

I've never liked the Transformers. The franchise didn't get its hooks into me as a kid, and while I've tried to give it a shot as an adult, it never really clicked. But now, with a recommendation from almost everyone I know and a well-timed Humble Bundle sale that left me with three years worth (and counting) of IDW's More Than Meets The Eye and Robots In Disguise comics, I'm going on a quest to see if these comics can turn me from someone who has never cared at all about Optimus Prime into someone who uses words like "Cybertron" and "alt-mode" with alarming regularity. And Primus help me, it's working.

This week, we're heading back to 2011 for "Chaos Theory" and the first meeting of Optimus Prime and Megatron!
