Turmoil arrives on Cybertron and even Metalhawk wants him dead, making Bumblebee the peacemaker in this case. However, the Autobots are curious about the method he used to arrive undetected, and Wheeljack goes in to investigate…and he might not come out alive!

What they got right: It’s nice to know that Metalhawk isn’t a blind pacifist, although it’s more personal history than anything else. We get presented an honest mystery and with a decent resolution. I wonder if the device in question will come up again.

What they got wrong: Wheeljack goes on at the end about how the Autobots are partly to blame, but I just don’t see it here.

Recommendation: It’s a decent story worth checking out. Not “strong” but not bad.

I like Wheeljack and all, but…slaaaaaaaag.
