Optimus Prime - missing, presumed dead. Prowl - missing, presumed dead. Ratchet - missing, presumed dead. Jazz - injured, a captive of Galvatron. Hound - injured. Bad as is is already, the list of Autobot casualties is about to get much, much worse. The war against the future Decepticons - Galvatron, Cyclonus and Scourge - hots up, as the two factions clash in all-out combat. Unfortunately, this is exactly what Galvatron wants! He's intent on seeing that the Autobots' latest battle is their last battle! Will anyone remain alive to challenge Galvatron's plans? Ultra Magnus certainly will, because he's turned his back on the Autobots in their hour of need!
