In General

Sentinel Prime

Orion Pax


Nominus Prime

  • Adaptational Heroism: From elitist jerkass to war hero.
  • Can't Kill You - Still Need You: Many note that Nominus preferred exiling powerful people (such as the Insecticons and Constructicons) instead of executing them outright.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: His policies have stifled Cybertron's growth and led to heavy energon rationing and regulation but also led to large surplus of the fuel. In his quest to keep his planet at peace, he also exiled many liabilities.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: He's been replaced by Sentinel but how has not been explained.


In General

  • A Lighter Shade of Black: Yeah they're crazed nutjobs but they're not the Rise. Which is exactly why Megatron took control of the Rise. To legitimize his faction.




  • Dirty Cop: Found the missing Voin smuggler instantly but chose to pass on the information to Shockwave instead of Prowl.
  • Spanner in the Works: His hack job of covering his tracks and then seeking political asylum at Ascenticon headquarters undoes so much of Megatron's Evil Plan.


  • Token Good Teammate: The only Ascenticon who isn't a complete lunatic.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Genuinely believes in the Asecticon desire to make the world a better place but is little more than pretty face for Megatron to show off to the masses.




  • The Exile: Lives in a fortress out in the wilderness and refuses to come out unless the world changes.
  • Fan of the Past: Because she views the present as a sterile, confining place.
  • Nostalgia Filter: Might be how she's viewing the Age of Expansion as several others have commented that it involved a lot of genocide.
  • Our Founder: Founded the Ascenticon movement.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: She imparted onto Megatron the idea that you have to tear down the old world to make a new one.





  • Friend to All Children: As Bumblebee notes, despite his Jerkass tendencies, he was very patient with any youths.
  • Jerkass: Not only would he never let anyone forget their failings or the times they were late, he wouldn't even bother to remember their names.
  • Plot-Triggering Death: He's killed in the first issue. He discovered the Risers trying to steal from him and Frenzy panicked.



  • The Peter Principle: She had no problem doing her job in peacetime. In this volatile socio-political climate, things might be a bit harder.



  • Ambiguously Evil: For all his good intentions and seeming care for his patients, he acts rather shifty.


  • Jerkass: All of his appearances consist of him being a smug bastard to just about everyone he comes across.
  • Playing Both Sides: And openly to boot. As he himself says, he has no idea who's going to win the upcoming socio-political upheaval so why rush to pick a side?


  • Foil: As Orion's mentor, she contrasts Termagax, Megatron's mentor. Both also have a markedly different view on the Age of Expansion, with Codexa viewing it as a barbaric time of colonizing and genocide.


  • Bigger Bad: The war he waged on Cybertron led to the Nominus Edict which is leading into the Great War.
  • Hive Mind: Could control at least three bodies.
  • Noodle Incident: Megatron says that he was "corrupted" by something or someone out in space.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: He lost the War of the Threefold Spark but some have expressed doubt on whether or not he's truly deceased.





  • Mind Rape: Had her brain hacked into by the Reversionists to believe that she was always one of them.
  • Replacement Goldfish: Was forged as a response to Brainstorm's death.
  • Token Religious Teammate: Inverted. Though she was brainwashed by the Reversionists, she doesn't buy into their religious dogma.
