Reposting about Megatron from the Batman thread

Transformers Prime (2011): Season 1 and 2 of that show were great and Megatron in that show was one of the best depictions; intelligent, clever, powerful and with an imposing, yet sleek design. More importantly however, he was expanded on as a character., becoming more than a stereotypical "I'm evil just because!" of the 80s. He was a former slaveesque miner who was thrown into gladiatorial fights in the pits of Kaon on cybertron. There his skill as a fighter led to triumph, becoming its champion. His popularity grew to the point where he rallied support from the citizens of Cyberton, using his charisma and oratory skill. He led them against the cybertronian council; corrupt and hierarchical, to demand change. However he was corrupted by the greed for power, and lacked political savviness unlike his upper-class Archivist protege Orion Pax, thus leading to a path of darkness and fascism as the latter became selected to be a Prime (becoming Optimus Prime). This lead to the civil war in which Optimus became leader of the Autobots (and where the old caste system was thrown away in the face of war), and becoming the new face of the people.

In other words, a people's hero had his path as a revolutionary turn to the darkness of fascism and his class-traitor protege became the new people's hero and revolutionary, quite similar to real life revolutions among humanity (something pointed out by the show).

This is an ironic change since G1 Orion Pax (pic 4) was originally a dock-worker autobot (since autobots and decepticons are separate peoples for some reason). He idolized Megatron and the re-risen Decepticons as new and improved due to their ability to fly as well as also being able to transform like their autobot counterparts (because originally decepticons could not transform). Only to be revived as Optimus Prime when Megatron raided the energon warehouse he worked at.
Megatron meanwhile was essentially like the Nazis, intent on reviving the decepticon people and being rulers of cybertron, essentially mirroring fascist cries of 'reviving the greatness of the past'. Orion's infatuation was part of fascism's populism before reality showed the error in that belief.

>The Hammer* general, angry that the Soviet government was working to better relations with the United States, sends Knyazev on an unauthorized mission to kill 10 high-ranking U.S. officials, ten key people who were involved with the United States' Strategic Defense Initiative, nicknamed the "Star Wars" program, in the hope of putting an end to it.

Squealer really fucked up by pointlessly antagonizing Yakomaru (you can see him getting off to Y's humiliation during the council meeting), and then not finishing the job and making sure he's dead. So in a way he can be read as a tragic hero, whose fatal flaw was pride.

This being said, it was a miracle that the revolution didn't go tits up long before came the meddling kids and their talking wolf. If the "fiend" accidentally killed one of the queerrats masquerading as humans, or a human mistook her for a queerrat from afar, it would be all over in an instant.

How bad a guy was he actually? In TDK the Joker is almost entirely targeting gangsters and cops, and the times his actions could kill regular people he seems to get people out first (like at the hospital). By the end he's primarily targeting cops who he seems to have a serious grudge against. He's also got access to and knows how to use military grade weapons and explosives (like the rocket launcher in particular) so plausibly a jaded veteran doing a Dorner.

Look at where Tiberium research was in C&C Renegade, Dr. Petrova is literally a superhuman powered by tiberium, and as of Tiberian Sun they're attempting to deploy the World Altering Missile to change literally everyone so that they're all incredibly powerful and capable of easily fighting off the Scrin harvesting team and hijacking their ships, which was supposed to become Command and Conquer's version of the Golden Path as humanity is forced to abandon its singular planet it resides on to begin taking the entire galaxy.

The whole pirate comic parallels Ozymandias, with the implication that his plan either won't work or is based on false premises.

Of course, but the way I like to think about it is that that's just because the story's writer is clearly a colossal musk fanboy-tier lib. There's no way the antagonist is ever gonna actually be good when he's written by his ideological enemies into a strawman.

Besides, I give the guy some slack on the basis that unlike literally every single primitivist tard in real life, this man actually is a colossal chad who can somehow kill lions with his bare hands.

Tsukasa is essentially the lib writer's idea of what revolutionary leftists are like. You'll see Tsukasa be literally anti-science, meanwhile the liberal order worshipping guy is the path to progress, which obviously couldn't be farther from the truth.

However the sheer audacity of the writer actually pushes me to still side with the retarded anarcho-primitivist, consider it a rebellion against the author's narrative itself.

Interesting. You know I so want to write my own little AU of Dr. Stone where it turns out that not only living humans get petrified but also humans that were embalmed in a certain way. Perhaps a certain Revolutionary gets revived from their stone prison and leads the Russian people to the stars once again?

Would be interesting in that AU when Senku makes his radio and he does hear the Why-Man's voice but when pointing it to the northwest he hears a certain song playing on the radio after a interval signal plays…

He's a liberal because he has no interest in making sure the new world will be any different from the capitalism of the old, he just wants to awaken everyone and return to status quo. The antagonist might be a brainless primitivist idiot, but at least he's got the right idea in the sense that he understands the fact that they literally have free reign to create a new kind of humanity from scratch without a bloody revolution instead of just returning to the old.
