You can look at it two different ways, either Cerebros makes a full Fort Max head comeplete with brain module or Spike would need to be at the centre.
I'm of the opinion it's the former as you remember Fort Max was shown with a head with Spike on his shoulder wearing his helmet and even talked, so perhaps he did not need Spike to form his head for him to have some independent thought and action?
I think it's the latter, that's why Spike needed the helmet. It put him in control of Max, even though he wasn't attached to Cerebros physically. Otherwise, Max wouldn't have responded, even though his head (Cerebros) was actually in place. It wasn't complete, because Spike wasn't transformed into Cerebros' head.
The difference with Zarak was without him Scorponok had no head whatsoever, and even referred to himself as Zarak rather than Scorponok so it could have been Zarak did literally make use of Scorponok's body.
Yeah, that's exactly what I'm saying. Also, IIRC, Cerebros didn't become part of Max until Galen had Max's body enlarged on the trip from Nebulos to Earth. Thus the need for a head-enlargement, because Galen (and later Spike) would have been too small by himself as Max's head. Thus the double headmaster.
Guess we need SF to actually address this in the upcoming story
Yeah, I hope he puts a little meat on the bones in the new stories, instead of just using the next 15 issues to tie loose ends up. Even though the quality and pacing of the story is subpar to the original Gen 1 stuff. Still better than anything else I've seen so far.
