So, the Dark Age of Costa is over, finished?

And apparently, Optimus stayed dead for 3 weeks now?

The R.I. cover is pretty metal. I might get that one.

I gotta bite the bullet and read through the painful art in the past 3 of 6 issues, and finally catch up to the current issue.

OMG I want to read this so bad. I am really looking forward to a new year of comics. Too bad it's such a pain to track down the paper issues. Does anyone know of any good stores to buy digital copies from? I know Comixology (or whatever it's called) has them but I'm not to keen on only being able to read them online... Preferably I would like to just read them from my desktop (since I lack any devices that can support this stuff :-( )

Orion Pax.........Optronix..........Orion Pax #-o

this is giving me a headache! Can't they just settle to one unified origin story?
What I did IS uncalled for. Next time, instead of thinking 70 x 7 first I immediately responded to an insulting post with another insult. I should not have stooped to that level. My apologies for not upholding/following the site rules.

I do this on my own volition and no threats of sanctions have been meted/threatened yet. If there is, I accept it (sanctions) whatever the mods see fit to dish out.

I think Dreamwave's G1 continuity and perhaps the Shattered Glass storyline (if I recall correctly) are the only two instances where Optronix has been used. I'm assuming SG used it simply because that was the current precedent at that time. In all other continuities where a pre-Optimus Prime has been revealed, it has been Orion Pax.

Yup but in this continuity, he's a cop. I mean, laborer/dockworker makes a far better background for an up and coming freedom fighter.

And in the 25th POS Ryan reviewed( the horrid pinkimus Prime)the box bio addressed him as Optronix..... :???:

Dockworker to Archivist can be slightly retconned but cop to .......IDW should at least get their continuity straight (not that DW was any better I'd grant that, though they at least addressed it earlier and not allowed the inconsistency to fester)
