True. But both Cody and Doc Greene used the word "fake" to describe the volcano.
That's because Cody doesn't understand the difference and Doc is insane.
Fan theory is fan theory. No canon evidence to support the latter.

I too looked upon BM with rose-tinted glasses... until I saw it a second time and realized that it still carried a lot of annoying baggage from BW, mostly Rattrap's constant whining and the calling out of transformations. Plus, Blackarachnia's whole character seemed to have degenerated into being defined by her relationship with Silverbolt; contrast Airachnid, who is more reminiscent of the independent and complex Blackarachnia from Beast Wars.
I meant by how it was mature with all its deep philosophical themes and controversial topics such as "harmony vs. extremism", "the needs of one vs. the needs of many", "conflict and inequality in a free society", "free will vs. totalitarianism", and "religious faith in a higher order". The fact that it included all of these heavy adult-minded aspects shows that it took risks and dared to go the extra mile of children's entertainment. It was definitely ahead of its time in that regard.
And that said, I would be immensely surprised if Rescue Bots also got that deep. If it were to that deep, though, then it may rank itself up to being the most mature pre-K cartoon ever.
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.
