Transformers: Regeneration One #97

The sudden arrival of Jhiaxus and his armada on Cyberton puts the Autobots on full alert. Despite his inital offer of peace, Rodimus Prime quickly discerns why Primus labelled the former senator a threat as Jhiaxus fills the Autobots' leader in on what he's been up to in the centuries since he left his homeworld. Not surprisingly, Rodimus turns down Jhiaxus' offer for Cybertron to join "The Hub."

Of course the senator's warriors don't wait for Rodimus' refusal before attacking both the primitive Transformers (who had just recently returned to the surface) and the Dinobots who attempt to stand-up for their new friends. Sadly, the Dinobots and Jetfire are severally injured in the attack meaning we might not see them for the next several issues.

The issue ends on an interesting note as it appears Shockwave and Starscream's roles on the sidelines as silent observers is at an end now that Jihaxus (who Starsream has some connection to) has returned. And on Earth Fortress Maximus comes back online, but he may not be the same loyal Autobot soldier as he once was. Worth a look.
