Editor’s Note = (info in parentheses) is in comic character descriptions, [Info in brackets] are my comments

On Autobot City (Metrotitan), the President of the United States is confronting Optimus Prime (Autobot Leader) regarding the fourth invasion of Earth by aliens. Optimus Prime, recently having stopped the Junkicons invasion and promised to use non-violent ways in the future to keep the peace, debates back with her on how both the Transformers and humans seem to always be perpetually at war at he wants it to stop. The President brings up the impending TV interview that Transformer Jazz will be doing. Prime is in favor of it because he believes Jazz will show to the humans a different side of the Autobots. Jazz, who mistakenly killed a human cop who he thought was threatening Bumblebee by pointing a gun at him, is considered a human killer and he has worked hard to reverse that opinion. The President doesn’t think the interview will go well and will make everything Optimus is trying to do harder and her job also. Transformer Sideswipe, who is barely alive and in a status tank, is being attended to by Arcee and Aileron (Autobot). She is very concerned with keeping him alive. On the Bikini Atoll, a former Earth Defense Command base now called Little Cybertron is being constructed, the Autobots, Junkicons and humans are all working together to build a home for the Transformers. Flint (GI Joe agent) and Marissa Faireborn (Little Cybertron Supervisor) [Flint’s daughter] are debating the Transformers, she looks at them as individual refugees in need of a home, he sees them as the threat that has killed billions of humans and are mile high cities. Rum-Maj (Leader Junkicon), who is caring the still functioning head of Wreck-Gar (Head Junkicon), is also supervising the construction. Playing to the side of the construction is Buster the Dog (Dog) , D.O.C. and Transformer Thundercracker (Dog’s best friend). Pyra Magna (Leader of the Torchbearers) yells at Thundercracker to stop playing and join the work. Marissa Faireborn steps in claiming Thundercracker is part of her team, Pyra Magna is happy to leave them alone. On another part of the Bikini Atoll, Slide, who is combiner and partner of Oiler, is at Oiler’s grave. Gimlet, Midnight Express, Roulette and Bump join her as the morn Oiler’s death. Slide wonders what she will become as she is no longer able to transform because she could only transform in combination with Oiler. Pyra Magna in vehicle mode is driving Marissa around the island as they observe the Junkicons collecting trash like items. Skyburst and Stormclash, similar Torchbearers like Pyra, transform from helicopter mode to land and help Pyra move the items the Junkicons are carrying.
