Comic Book Resources (CBR) interviewed Chris Metzen to talk about the recently launched Transformers: Autocracy.
As to the story itself, "Autocracy" takes place early in the war between Autobots and Decepticons, before Optimus Prime and Megatron had risen to their respective stations as the leaders of their tribes. Even so, "Autocracy" will show these two Cybertronians were pivotal forces in their planet's history. "This series focuses on Orion Pax, who will 'one day' become the Optimus Prime we all know and love. It also focuses on Megatron who's at the start of his own violent career," Metzen said.
