The Decepticons are defeated. What's next?

Yep, it's happened again. It wouldn't be a proper Transformers series if Optimus doesn't bite it at least once. There's a new twist on it this time around, though.

Later, Optimus splits the Matrix in half and gives one half each to Bumblebee and Rodimus. Then he makes good on his promise and leaves.

again, whatever their motivation is I see no evidence these guys are different than the 1984 G1 Decepticons. What they would have done is totally obvious to me.

We have seen a significant difference in their backstory. G1 Megatron was a megalomaniac who believed he had a divine right to rule. IDW Megatron is a rebel against an unjust caste-dominated system where how you were built defined your entire life.

you're talking motivation, I'm talking behavior and actions.

Behaviour and actions are very much dependent on motivation. If Megatron IS solely motivated by a desire for universal domination, nothing less will stop him. On the other hand, if he has, at the core of his Spark, a need for revenge/justice for past transgressions by the Autobots, he may well accept an outcome OTHER than being big boss of the universe.

then why wage war like he did on so many other planets in the universe in ways that would exterminate all life on them. Megatron's problems with the corruption and all in the Senate was that he wasn't at the head of it
