Last time we saw the tallest assholes
, they were about to unleash their evilest plan yet.
Look, I didn't pay much attention to that particular story. Something about a magic dimension and a Deceptigod. I'm all about TF stories when they involve adventurous journeys, battles, political drama and character moments. But when they start talking about Primus and metaphysics and LOST-like mysteries, my eyes start glazing over.
ANYWAY. At the end of that story: Cybertron is revived, Megatron is MIA, and Starscream and all the other Decepticons are taken prisoners. For all intents and purposes, the War is over, and the Autobots have won.
Also, Neutrals (also known as NAILs, Non-Aligned Indigenous Life-forms) have been coming back in drones. Turns out that not all Cybertronians went Autobots or Decepticons, quite a lot of them chose to wash their hands of the whole conflict and hightail it. And now that they are back, they are blaming both
Autobots and Decepticons for all the destruction and tragedy (which... is technically right. The Autobots started it by being assholes, and the Decepticons continued it by being assholes even after defeating the evil Senate).
While this series of posts is called "Megatron & Starscream," this particular post will focus almost exclusively on Starscream, because Megatron is MIA and doesn't show up for a long time while Starscream deals with all the post-War changes. ( It's a brand-new world... )
