|Function: Decepticon Leader|
|"Peace will come for all Cybertronians."|
As a young mathematician, Megatron lectured at one of Cybertron's most prestigious universities. During the course of his own studies, he had developed a set of equations that could predict social trends in a given society. He was alarmed when these trends pointed to a civil war on Cybertron. His colleagues dismissed his work as the paranoid ranting of a lunatic. He saw them as simply misguided and he retreated underground to prepare for the coming war. When Optimus Prime began his march across Cybertron, Megatron was ready. He had developed the art of transformation, refashioning his own body into one capable of converting to an aerial vehicle of tremendous power. While Optimus spread the gospel of destruction and conquest, Megatron championed compassion, courage and freedom. His charisma and humor in the face of a war helped him form a united front against the Autobots. Though Megatron is a pacifist at heart, he has the soul of a warrior as many have discovered time and again.

Fun Publications Comic Info
Megatron is the leader of the noble Decepticons and sworn defender of justice and freedom in the universe against the tyranny of Optimus Prime. In the Shattered Glass comic, Megatron takes in a dimensionally displaced Cliffjumper when Optimus Prime cast him out into the wastes of Cybertron's Rad Zone, in spite of his resemblance to Optimus' former right hand 'bot. With Cliffjumper's help, he developed glass gas bombs, to use on the launch platform of Optimus Prime's Ark mothership, although Cliffjumper was reluctant to follow Megatron, having been used to fighting his own universe's version of Megatron. However, during the battle at the launch platform, Megatron won Cliffjumper's trust by throwing himself in the way of a potentially fatal blast, shielding Cliffjumper with his own body.
Megatron sees Cliffjumper as being vitally important to his universe, as a representation of the ideal that something better is out there. He is also not aware of the existence of Primus or presumably by extension of Unicron.
