  • Red Alert's presence was later explained as being an art error, for the second time in a row.
  • Though Wheeljack apparently died in this issue, he is fine by the next series.


  • None yet identified.

Items of note

  • The middle of the comic contains a two-page spread by James Raiz and Alan Wang with Kenny Li featuring Generation One Transformers.
  • Spike is shown being happy for the Autobots' victory and apparently oblivious to the damage to the city, while Prime observes the devastation with concern and grief. In issue 2, as Prime comments that the Autobots wouldn't cause this much destruction if they weren't being controlled, Spike replies that such damage is the usual result of Transformers battles on Earth.
  • It is never really explained why a nuclear missile that appears to be launched from within the continental U.S. would have to pass over the Pacific Ocean to hit San Francisco.
  • Or why it was really necessary for Superion to fly into the missile, killing all five Aerialbots, when they could have just delegated the job to Slingshot. Or just shoot the bloody thing down over the sea.
