For a guy who has been frustrated by every thing that happens on the Lost Light Megatron is very quick to say "Lets go take a detour." Course that could be just to annoy Rodimus. Wouldn't put it past him.

I dunno. Megs seems to have his own sense of honor and propriety and I think rewind probably sparked something there.

Megs is strict and harsh but he very much seems fair and decent.

Megatron smiling is never a good sign. He wants to visit for reasons of his own.

This being James Roberts, I'm sure there is still some twist to Dominus Ambus yet to be revealed. I half wonder if Ten is somehow Dominus Ambus. It would help to explain his connection with Magnus (although that could just be because of both their connections to Tyrest), and it would be epically tragic to have a polymath like Dominus reduced to a being that essentially suffers from extreme autism. As to the how, I couldn't tell you. This theory is honestly pretty out there.

or, you know, maybe just to Rewind? Remember how he was kind of nice to him?

I hope this puts some Dominus Ambus/tarn speculation to rest. Rewind is talking about him TO MEGATRON. The one person who knows without a doubt who Tarn is. Pretty sure if he was Dominus Megatron would speak up.

Honestly? I think Megatron wants to go so he can find out if Terminus is dead

There must be a reason Megs wants to go. He wouldn't just go cause of Rewind. There is something else here :BOT:

Naw, this is fanning the flames. Megatron konws him as Tarn, but for all we know HE does not know who's behind the mask. He only found out about the new Vos after the alternate lost light adventures, so it could be anything. Terminus would also be a cool thing for Megs :BOT:

Megatron knows exactly who Tarn is. They're his personal kill squad, he created them. He didn't know about the new Vos because he's been absent from them since he came back after the Costa era, that's why their shrine has his -ation mode and not his stealth bomber mode.

It's like I've speculated before, there's only been one Tarn. The one we know is the first incarnation of Tarn and the original. While the DJD are a cast that replaces members and takes on the name of the previous, there's only ever been one Tarn. He has survived the entire life span of the justice division. It's why he's the leader of them and they follow his strict democratic form of leadership.

don't forget: the justice division may not be as old as we think. It could be only 2 or 3 millions years old, so we don't really know the origin time. Also, they may be the justice division, but they seem very independent and for all we know, it's like Megs not knowing all his undercover agents. plus, we have never had proof that all of them are the same as the originals. for all we know they have changed several times :BOT:

Good point by Minimus Ambus in the last panel. :BOT:

Personally I think the only original members are Tarn and maybe Helex. Tesarus had shown to be very uncomfortable with the performance reviews so for me, that shows he's not a veteran member. We know Vos has had multiple iterations. Three that we know of: one with hooks for feet and hands, agent 113 and the current one. kaon is still mystery but he's very adjusted with the DJD lifestyle. I think Helex has been around the second longest due Megatron being fully aware of his signature "forcing bots to eat their brains". Same with Tarn. Megatron has full knowledge of Tarn's transformation addiction and his flashbacks of being rebuilt by Lobe and standing with Megatron. Also the fact he has a first edition of Towards peace. With all that I do believe the Tarn we know is one of the founding members of the DJD. Seeing how Tarn runs a very strict unit and from what we've seen happens when a leader is taken out (stranded on an asteroid, cannabinolizing each other) it makes sense that he's always been there making sure their reputation stands.

I am led to believe that the Vos with hooks for hands and feet WAS Agent 113. That would explain how he has only been around a few years and that one apparently disappeared right around the time Agent 113 says he has been compromised. :BOT:

Two notes, I think that agent 113 is the Vos with hooks for hands and feet considering megatron made the off comment "how could he fire a gun with those claws of his". Also the 10 plushie that minimus has, is adorable.

I hadn't noticed that!...why does he look at the toy when he says he can guess what happened to him??? :-? :-? :-?

There are at least three panels in one page showing the 10 toy or Minimus fiddling with it.

They are very similar, and i like that they are keeping consistent style. however, you can just see that Sakamoto is doing it a teensy bit more expressively and cartoony. not bad at all, just a slight difference :BOT:
