My reasoning is exactly the same, along with the stories not being really up to par, or at least not having that "epic" feeling. Though I have yet to read any of the "-ation" series or Stormbringer.

Galvatron, I'd have believed. (And speaking of Galvatron, where is he?) I badly need a flashback, stat.
It's not that inconceivable. Last time we saw them, Megs and Galvy tag-teamed Shockwave, but it's unclear how that ended. Then in #79, "The Last Autobot" Fort Max put the pimp hand to Galvatron as he was insanely tearing up some random town, apparently surviving the Ark crash without much damage. By this we could safely assume that Megatron survived it is similar condition. Last we saw Galvatron he was catching a nap at the bottom of a lake. This points to Megs and Galvy most likely winning their altercation against Shockwave, though not necessarily resulting in Shockwave's death. With Bludgeon gone and Scorponok dead (Lord Zarak, anyway) this left no one in charge of all those forgotten-on-Earth Decepticons except Megatron. With all the Autobots gone, he pretty much had a smorgasbord in front of him. Megatron 1, humanity 0.
