Full Summary can be read at Transformers Wiki tfwiki.net. See Issue Optimus Prime #5

In Mexico City, Jazz (Trying too hard) is following a lady in car mode and then transforms when she confronts him, all he wants to do is protect her, she believes he makes her more of a target. Jazz turns around and sees a horde of Sharkticons controlled by the Junkicons come dropping down to the street from the nearest tall building.

Autobot City aka Metrotitan above the Matterhorn Mountain in Europe, the Junkicon ship has drilled into Metrotitan, its surrounded and being attack by human operated GI Joe Dragonflys and Skystrikers. Cosmos (Disagreed with something that ate him) is inside the Junkicon ship getting tossed around gets ejected out. On Metrotitan, the President of the United States and several other world leaders who had gathered together to meet to discuss representing the world are also being attacked. Optimus Prime (Savior?), Pyra Magna (Leader of the Torchbearers) and Aileron (About to become Air Force One) defend the human leaders and load them into Jetfire (Warrior/Scientist) and Aileron.

Inside the Junkicons ship, Rum-Maj (Earth Invader) and Wreck-Gar (Bonkers, Earth Invader) are having a grand old fun time attacking the humans and Transformers by commanding the Sharkticons.

Soundwave (Decepticon Ally), Talon (GI Joe field Leader) and Spike (Special Warfare) watch the attack from the ground.

Arcee (Concerned) and Sky Lynx (Carriage) have loaded Sideswipe (Comatose) up for evac. Optimus Prime rallies the Torchbearers and Colonist Soldiers on Metrotitan and gives them the orders to take out the Sharkticons. Optimus Prime commands Metrotitan to fight back. Metrotitan partially transforms with his hands coming up and grabbing the corkscrew designed Junkicon ship smashing it. All of the Autobots are amazed that Optimus Prime can command a titan. The Torchbearers, human planes and other Autobots all attack. The Torchbearers combine to form Victorion (The Torchbearers combined form with Gravity powers) to better fight the Sharkticons.

Soundwave spots the falling Cosmos and catches him. Hi Tech (Operations Specialist) and Mainframe (Computer Specialist) are on the ground to help look over Cosmos who is severely damaged. Soundwave projects a speech to the Sharkticons. Mum-Raj and Wreck-Gar come rushing out of the semi-destroyed Junkicon ship. Oiler is severely damaged. Wreck-Gar sneaks into Metrotitan in order to steal the Positron Core.

Soundwave finishes his speech about freedom from the Junkicons power and the Sharkticons transform and stop fighting.

Jazz, in Mexico City, has been surrounded by the Sharkticons who are about to attack but stop short, transform and refuse to attack.
